Dancin' in Paradise

That's what you feel like doing when you listen to the fun-loving island party music of the Tsunami Wave Riders blending traditional island instruments, like the Caribbean steeldrums, Hawaiian ukulele and lap-steel guitar, with popular dance rhythms to keep you in the island state of mind all day and night!  We play a mix of originals and popular island-inspired songs from artists such as Bob Marley, Jimmy Buffett, Kenny Chesney, Zac Brown, the Beach Boys, the Drifters, Harry Belafonte and more.

Originally from Hawaii and now living in Charlotte, NC, we bring the island/tropical music experience to you and your guests!

Everyone loves an island party!

The Tsunami Wave Riders helped make our "Evening in the Islands" fundraiser a success! The crowd loved the music and interaction! All I heard all evening was how much folks were enjoying you guys. Thank you much for being part of our first event and helping us raise over $6,700 for the Ranch and the animals! Hope to work with you guys again in the future. Highly recommend these guys for your event! - Susan, Fundraiser - Rescue Ranch, Inc.

The Tsunami Wave Riders were everything we were looking for and more. We wanted to have a tropical back for our "End of Summer Beach Bash" Company Picnic. Not only did they perform for us throughout our event, they interacted with us as well. They tried to teach several of our associates how to hula which made for some funny moments that we will all be laughing about for some time to come. They were professional, affordable, accommodating, and most of all...talented. - Melody H., Corporate Party - Conyers, GA


This band was absolutely wonderful!!! They played great music and had a really fun presence on stage; without them our reception would not have been anywhere near as much fun! I will definitely hire them again for any future events. On a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate them a 150!!!!! - Elizabeth C., Wedding - Concord, NC

The Tsunami Wave Riders were the best! This was a corporate meeting that we were looking for something a little special and out of the ordinary to go with the barbecue type dinner we had planned and they were perfect. They gave the whole affair the exact ambiance that we were looking for. They are extremely professional and I would recommend for any type of event. - Lynn P., Corporate Event - Davidson, NC

I had a wedding on the beach at Fort Fisher near Wilmington, NC, and they traveled all the way there. They did an amazing job before, during, and after the ceremony on the beach. They brought a sound system that did not even have to have an electric outlet, and it sounded amazing. All of the guests loved the music, and I am still hearing raving reviews about their performance from everyone. I appreciate all of the planning and practice that they did beforehand, especially the phone calls about what we wanted for our ceremony. It was a perfect performance, and I recommend them to everyone! Thank you guys! - Kara Russel, Wedding - Wilmington, NC


I couldn't have had a better birthday and this band made the party. I had everyone asking me how in the world I ever found such a great band, and someone even said they were the best island band they have ever heard. I felt honored to have them perform at the party. I hope I can see them perform again. What a wonderful,unforgettable experience. Thank you guys for a terrific birthday night. - Carla Adams, SC
