Stay tuned to hear all of the exciting details!!
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
The House Band of Ohana!! 9th Wave has been performing since 1995, from the northeast (NYC, Boston) as far south as Savannah GA. Regulars at nearly every Sleazefest & Instro Summit (music festivals in NC), and Ohana Luau at the Lake (upstate NY), 9th Wave, from Storrs CT, plays an diverse combination of surf, exotica & hot rod music at regional music and tiki festivals, hot rod/motorcycle/custom car shows, cultural institutions, clubs, and more. With their unique and signature style, 9th Wave has recorded six full-length CDs of original music, and is working on the 7th CD, “Surfing with Poseidon” (which should be ready at The Lake!) The 9th Wave sound is made up of Mike “Staccato” Rosado on lead surf guitar, Negative Ed on bass, Phred Rawles on drums, and Sandy Rosado on Farfisa organ, rhythm guitar, flute, and saxophone. We will be joined at Ohana by the Go-Go Natives, beautiful and talented hooping / go-go dancers, including Vanna Vroom and Sarah Sizzle! 9th Wave and the Rosados are also champions of East Coast Surf Music, and are the founders and directors of The North East Surf Music Alliance, the largest network of surf bands in the world.

Tsunami of Sound
Tsunami of Sound is a 3 piece huge sounding surf rock band from Boston Ma. rocking Massachusetts and New York for 8 years. The members are David Esposito on guitar and reverb, Jamie Huggins on bass and Rick Sanger on drums. You’ll love their sparkly jackets and real surf sound!www
The Séparatwists are four local veterans who have played with various ska and garage bands over the years, including the Kingpins, the Macchabés and the Cryptics. The group formed in winter 2002 with Josh Fuhrman on sax, Bruno Martel on guitar, Éric Boulanger on drums and Jean Masson on bass, and its mission is simple: to make you twist. The four piece also dips into some rock’n‘roll and surf numbers, mixed with some classic spy movie fare and a few originals for good measure. The frenzied saxophone, melodic guitar and bass riffs and steady kick-beat of the drum will surely propel you on to the dance floor. Twist and shout!www
The Stone gods demanded a sacrifice, ‘You must send your finest entertainer out into the world to share the happiness you have known.’ The tribe’s leaders convened at the local tiki bar for a battle of the exotica bands. After a three day celebration, one man was voted off the island to be the Ambassador of Goodwill… Roland Remington.www
The Evil Streaks
If you dipped, The Cramps, into a pot of The Sonics and added a pinch of sweetness of the Go-Gos, you’d get The Evil Streaks. The Evil Streaks combine the trashy garage/surf sound of the ‘60s with contemporary dark punkabilly. These characters, dressed only in black and white, unleash a unique brand of creepy-yet-rockin’ sound that is sure to leave you begging for more.www
