Staycation Surf Band

Staycation - Matthew Bailey's surf crew - join us again this year for an evening of sunny surf tunes! 

Dinner service starts at 5:30pm - come early to get a table. 
Please bring cash for the band - this is a pay-what-you-can show. 

Staycation are a band of shape-shifting, dance-inducing, slop-surfing friends that perform and write music that holds in its core a signature vibrating energy found originally in recordings by Link Wray, The Shadows and other instrumental surf rock pioneers. While paying tribute to these innovators at their live shows, Staycation also perform original music with sounds ranging from nintendo western to disco surf. They're no strangers to the Island Cafe stage, having played every year since the band's inception (under various names), and this year promises to be their best yet! Staycation lead guitarist, Matthew Bailey says: "we've got new strings on our guitars, new tubes cooking in our amplifiers and a brand new EP in tow so islanders and city slickers alike better bring their dancing flip-flops and SPF 60 on July 8th".
