THE SURFRAJETTES are a four-piece surf rock act from Toronto, Canada. Since forming in late 2015, the band has been charming audiences with their clever mix of psychedelic rock and classic surf tuneage. The girls’ sky-high beehives and eyeliner as thick as the strings on their guitars are just the icing on the retro-themed cake. The ‘Jettes may look nice, but watch out for their steel-toed go-go boots…
The Surfrajettes are: guitarists Shermy Freeman and Nicole Damoff, bassist Sarah Butler, and drummer Amber Rutschmann. When not performing, the group is busy woodshedding in their secret Beach Hut, sewing new miniskirts, debating vintage gear, and day dreaming about being in a Quentin Tarantino movie.www
Nearly 13 years after their first encounter with a true suffering bastard—and the better part of a decade recovering from the dastardly actions of their archenemy Lex Bastard (no relation)—the boys of Waitiki swim like fish back to Lake George to perform true exotica in 3-D. Also, Martin Denny’s realtor says hi!www
Swankenstein's Poolside Voodoo Boogaloo
DJ Swankenstein (Toronto, ON. Can.) spins a bubbly concoction on his turntable laboratory that fuels your wayback machine and provides a vintage soundtrack that transports us back to the era where we mentally reside.www

Granite & his ukulele, along with some friends will bring a bit of hawaii & a lot of fun to the Ohana stage with your favorite Hapa & Hawaiian tunes.www
Lara Hope and The Ark-Tones
Winner of the 2017 Ameripolitan Music Award for Best Rockabilly Female, and named the “Best Up-and-Coming Band” by Hudson Valley Magazine, Lara Hope and the Ark-Tones are NY’s premier Rockabilly, Roots Rock n’ Roll, Rhythm & Blues outfit.
Born from a hybrid of Lara’s former Rockabilly band The Champtones, and upright bassist Matt’s international Psychobilly act The Arkhams, The Ark-Tones hit the ground running in 2012, and haven’t slowed down since. This fun-loving bunch packs the dance floor with their own original musical offerings in the vintage style as well as re-workings of classics and standards. This “travelin’ band” is out there pleasing listeners of all ages and walks of life…wherever they roam.www
