Firstly, with their recent return from the road hitting some East Coast hot spots with fellow reggae-heads Ballyhoo!, 2016 has been an exciting year for Oogee Wawa. Having played in the past with the likes of Slightly Stoopid, SOJA, Sublime with Rome, The Dirty Heads, The Wailers, Badfish, Ballyhoo!, Passafire, rocking the 2015 Beer Fields Craft Beer & Music Festival alongside Collie Buddz, and hitting the road with a touring schedule of over 200 shows a year, Oogee released their second LP “More Sand Than Money” in April of 2015. After rocking with 311, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, and The Green at The Great South Bay Music Festival this past July and the Long Beach International Film Festival’s “Taste On the Beach” in August, they filmed a LIVE taping of “Rick’s Rising Stars” at Revolution Bar & Music Hall which aired on Verizon Fios Channel 1 and made history headlining The Paramount in Huntington, NY to a roaring crowd of over 1,200 in late September 2015 as the first unsigned headliners to rock the venue! Continuing with more Long Island performances and a stop over in Ocean City, MD in early September, the band filmed an episode of “Live It Up!” with Donna Drake at IndiMusic TV Studios and did an interview with Orlando at 94.3 The Shark promoting their Paramount headliner, and even rocked NYC’s famed The Bitter End in December. As they continue with more upcoming live dates and recently dropped the perfect Summer anthem with “Palm Trees”, this is a group you do NOT want to miss Sunday night!
Secondly, having recently been featured on Reverbnation.com’s “CROWD PICKS”, Eastern Surf Magazine’s On the Record, premiered their video for “Grey Street” (Dave Matthews Band Cover) via Elmore Magazine, AND been mentioned in a recent New York Times article regarding their studio: Montclair Records – Long Island’s own Gnarly Karma seem to be spreading their good vibes to bigger and bigger audiences as they head further into 2016! With their debut album “Classic Breeze”- released via iTunes last September – as the catalyst for their recent growth, the group consisting of members Mike Renert (Vocals, Guitar, Harmonica), Jarrod Beyer (Drums, Percussion), Ryan McAdam (Bass), and Billy Hanley (Alto & Tenor Saxophone, Keyboard, BGV’s) brings a wide and varied range of influences to the table equating to their unique sound, which is most often associated with that of Dave Matthews Band, Sublime, and Mumford & Sons, but not restricted by genre. Originally starting in 2012 with Renert and Beyer, McAdam and Hanley later came into the mix having gone to school together with Beyer, who’d also performed with McAdam in Alt band “We Love Radio”. This being the band’s first year rockin’ the Sayville Seafood Fest, they’ll be a welcomed addition to the eclectic mix of music.
Finally, Dave Diamond’s successful career in music spans more than twenty years. A prolific singer/songwriter and session musician, Dave has recorded and performed as a solo artist and with his own band as well as with an array of other talented and acclaimed musicians such as Bob Weir, Donna Jean Godchaux, Robert Randolph, Derek Trucks, and Oteil Burbridge. Diamond has been featured in Modern Drummer and Drum Magazine, and is equally comfortable in abstract and complex musical terrain as evidenced by his contributions to Blow Up Hollywood, the art rock collective led by Steve Messina, and the musical catalogue of poet NYC poet/ songwriter Alan Semerdjian. Diamond has been recently touring to promote his newest full length release with The Dave Diamond Band, which will feature Jason Crosby (Phil Lesh, Bob Weir, Robert Randolph), Jeff Mattson, Rob Barraco (Dark Star Orchestra, Zen Tricksters, Phil Lesh) and Jessie Wagner (Kid Rock, Lenny Kravitz) among other notable names in the industry. He’s sure to bring his unique multi-talented and well crafted music to new heights at the Seafood Fest Main Stage!
With such an amazing group of talented artists and bands represented by the Rick Eberle Agency getting ready to take to the Main Stage at the 25th Annual Sayville Seafood Festival at the Long Island Maritime Museum Saturday, August 27th through Sunday, August 28th you’ll have your chance to experience great music and great SEAFOOD!
