The Island Castaways Band / Blog

What a weekend!!

Greetings my friends and welcome to my first of what I hope will be many Island Castaways Blogs. I couldnt have thought of a better way to start then to tell about the past weekend we had on the Jersey shore at the 4th annual Spring Phling!! Mai Tai Joe and myself arrived on Thursday evening after the 6hr ride from MA. We were lucky enough to catch part of the last set from Dani Hoy and John Friday, that was fun! On Friday, Roy Holliday joined us from Texas and what a joy to see him again! Some of the acts that hit the stage that morning were Tiki Thom Starkley, Nicky Fabbz, Mike Mangum and Dave McKenney. We hit the stage at 3pm to a crowd that was ready for an afternoon full Trop-Rock and Island music! Everyone was so nice to us and made us feel really welcome. After we were done John frinzi took the stage followed by the swim skinny band! I had to leave early on Saturday morning but Roy not only got up to jam with swin skinny, but on Saturday night got up and jammed with The Chris Sacks band!!! This was also our first show of the year!! I can only imagine what we are in store for!!! Well I guess thats it for now. I hope it wasn't too bad for my first time!! I hope this finds you all well!!!! Paul J Kane
