About
***Winner of "Best World Music Artist" at the 2009 Charlotte Music Awards, Gigmasters 2008 Rising Star Award for Top Beach Band in North America, and "Single of the Year" at the 2008 Hawaii Music Awards, the Tsunami Wave Riders are one of the most popular tropical bands on the east coast!

With an unparalleled combination of troprock, Calypso and steel drums, Hawaiian, Beach, oldies and reggae along with popular original songs, the Wave Riders put you right in the middle of paradise - whether it's Hawaii, the Caribbean or Key West!

Party island-style! Much more than just background music, Tsunami Wave Riders performances can include a conga line, limbo contest, hula demos, audience participation and other tropical activities - and Ronnie Tsunami - the Wave Riders lead singer and keyboard player - is always a hit with his dancing and aloha spirit!

There is nothing like the sound of steel drums to put your guests back in the islands! Performing on symphonic-quality steel drums crafted by one of the finest 'panmakers' in the world, 1 to 3 steel drummers are available for your party.

Listen to what some of our past clients have said:

'You're the best luau band ever!!'
'You had all our guests laughing and dancing - can't wait to have you back!'
'Felt like we were back in Hawaii'
'Better than Jimmy Buffett's Band!'
'Couldn't have asked for more for our wedding'
'Very friendly, professional and punctual - and an amazing performance'
'Everything looked and sounded absolutely beautiful'

We can provide anything from a relaxing 2-piece steel drum ensemble to a full 7-piece tropical performing band and anything in between for Hawaiian Luaus, weddings, festivals, corporate event or other tropical-theme parties. We always deliver a one-of-a-kind performance that will have your guests island dreamin' and island dancin'!

Need more than entertainment? We can provide photography, lei greetings, island catering, tropical decorations, island-style games and activities, custom songs, banners and decorations - even school educational performances and corporate cultural/diversity talks and performances for one-of-a-kind island events!

Whatever you got, we can handle with professional service and aloha spirit - let's get the party started!
