Following MP3 Leak of the Week Feature by Reggae-Rock News Giants “The Pier”, The Band Announced New EP at The End of The Month With Release Show
Saturday, April 1st in Miller Place, NY
Long Island, NY (March, 2017) — Having just dropped their newest single “Give Up the Ganja” feat. J Randy as The Pier’s “Leak of the Week” and tearing through FL for the Reggae Rise Up Music Festival, New York’s Oogee Wawa recently announced another string of upcoming March dates along with the highly anticipated release of their brand new EP “High N Tight” at the end of the month, and EP Release Show Saturday, April 1st at Recipe 7 (275 New York 25A #33, Miller Place, NY 11764)!
2016 was an exciting year for the band, who headed out on their Island Hopper Tour in January, hitting stops in FL and the U.S. Virgin Islands, then conquering a string of epic shows which included opening for reggae legends Steel Pulse, a string of dates with fellow reggae-rockers Ballyhoo!, the Rocks Off Concert Cruise with The Movement, and taking the Main Stage at the Sayville Seafood Festival. The band also launched a Summer Singles Series releasing new tunes “Waiting on the Sunrise” with TreeHouse, “Palm Trees”, “Finding Fame” ft. Bumpin Uglies, and “Just Another Day”.
Now into a brand new year, they’ve been hard at work in the studio tracking “High N Tight”. As M.C. Jesse Lee Roenbeck recently told The Pier “We record everything in house, our guitarist JP Aceto engineers and produces all of our stuff and then we come in and nit pick”. On its first single and it’s overall message, he continues “‘Give Up The Ganja’ is a relatable topic in today’s age. Too many people are given a hard time for enjoying a little smoke. One of my daughters has Cerebral Palsy and trying to get CBD oil for her seizures in NY is incredibly hard, illegal and expensive, and that is ridiculous! This is by no means an anti-police song, more of a ‘Hey most people smoke weed and don’t cause any problems’ song.”

Before officially starting Oogee Wawa- MC Jesse Lee Roenbeck of Centereach, JP Aceto on guitar and vocals of Baiting Hollow, Chad Chadwick on bass of Selden, and Nick Loiodice on drums and vocals of Smithtown were friends just messing around playing the bar scene so many Long Island musicians know and clamor to on nights and weekends to get a little bit of that adrenaline pumping, big-or-small crowd cheering rush that comes with performing live. Forming in 2008, the band began playing consistent shows to ever-growing crowds before the release of their first LP- 2012’s “Ride Waves”, and as their momentum got going they quickly became the island’s in-demand alternative reggae act from Long Beach to Montauk. Adding Keyboard/Horn player Frank Stark in 2015, they’ve continued to soldier on and add to their enormous fan base from coast to coast!
