Traditional Jewish folk songs... Instrumental Surf Music... WHO KNEW?
Ask any big Hollywood macher, and they'll tell you - it's the latest craze with the boychiks and maydeles. The parting of the Red Sea and the curl of the Banzai Pipeline. The sands of the Sinai and the waves at Waikiki. The Diamond District and Diamond Head. The songs of the Jews and the sound of the surf guitar!
Grab your surfboard, a bobby-pin for your yarmulke, and pack a lunch. Don't forget sunscreen. The whole mishpuchah will be there, to kibitz, to nosh, and to dance the hora at the MESHUGGA BEACH PARTY!!!
Meshugga Beach Party brings together many favorite Jewish melodies with the fun, retro-cool sounds of surf music. The band puts on an exciting, high energy live show - dressed like rabbis, synchronized dance moves, the “dead joke scrolls” – it’s surfin’ shtick at it’s finest. The band features guitars, piano, organ, bass and drums, and the occasional holler for good measure.
Meshugga Beach Party has been playing around the Bay Area since 2003 at clubs and festivals, including shows at AT&T Park and The Bay to Breakers. Live performances of the band have also been a hit on the web, with their “Hava Nagila /Misirlou” clip garnering over 100,000 viewings on sites like YouTube and Yahoo video.
