Longboat Luau

with the Ho-dad

Scheduled on

Thursday 7:00 pm 8:59 pm

Alt Thursdays 7-9 PM

Life on Longboat Key is a unique experience. I have lived it for two years now and hope to distill my experiences into a twice monthly musical luau. You’ll hear everything from Tiki, Lounge, Surf Guitar, 60’s Sunshine Pop, Reggae, Latin Jazz, Polynesian and Calypso. I’ll also mix in some Jump Blues, Vocal Standards, Novelty Tunes, and so much more. It promises to be a shindig for your ears, so pull up a lounge chair, slap on some sunscreen, pour yourself a cold one, and join us. Aloha!
