Their music is high energy driven moody , moving and passionate.  The Concaves have played numerous venues in and around Santa Cruz and elsewhere.  In 2003 they played two live performances at The San Jose Museum of Cultural Art for the grand Opening of The Surf Culture "The Art History of Surfing" show.  They were applauded by surf celebrities from around the world and local luminaries as well.  They played three shows at the Cocoanut Grove for the showing of the surf documentary "Cowell's and the New Millennium to large crowds and also again for the Surfers for Katrina Benefit.

The following is a quote from Phil Dirt, surf instrumental critic of Reverb Central about The Concaves:
"Six five intros & as many cool vocals about the surfing life are commingled on "Alive from the Red Triangle".  This is a major step forward for Santa Cruz's The Concaves.  A very strong modern surf CD!"
