Meshugga Beach Party !

Now folks, sit down at the bar with a He Brew beer and enjoy the music !
Surf guitar guru, Mel Waldorf has brought together the seemingly unlikely pairing of traditional Jewish songs and instrumental surf guitar into a wonderfully funny and musically relevant CD entitled Meshugga Beach Party: Twenty Songs of The Chosen Surfers !
Born and raised in the suburbs of New York City, Mel Waldorf grew up loving the foods and traditions of his Jewish heritage as well as rock and roll music, and surf music in particular. Waldorf explains, "Growing up in Suffern, New York, there was no surf scene - no beach, no waves, and no surficilicious babes - but it was a fantasy more than a few of us shared."
Now settled in northern California, Waldorf continues to play with the Mel-Tones playing with members of several well-known San Francisco area surf bands. In addition to his recording and performing ventures, Waldorf has written orginal surf music for a variety of TV shows and movies including Nickelodeon's "SpongeBob SquarePants", Disney's "My Favorite Martian" and MTV's "The Real World." But it is Meshugga Beach Party - his own creation - that is currently garnering him the most attention !
Anyway, the whole mishpuchah will be there to kibitz, nosh and dance the Hora at the Meshugga Beach Party !
Cowabunga & Let’s Go Shlepping !

Meshugga Beach Party :
* Hava Nagila *
* Oh Hanukkah *

It's so fitting for a Jewish surf band to do "Hava Nagila" but as good as this is, it's always hard to top Dick's version.

Absolutely right bro...
But the band says that their main inspiration is Dick Dale's Barmitzvah !!!
