For two nights the Asbury Lanes was taken over by the “surf, lounge and exotic sounds” of the Hi-Tide Summer Holiday. After a two year hiatus, Hi-Tide Recordings put together a lineup that included Los Straitjackets, Southern Culture on the Skids, Messer Chups, Man or Astro-Man?, Black Flamingos, Televisionaries, The Swingin’ Palms, and The Gringo Starr All Starr Band.

There were also a number of special guests including Les Green and Ian Gray plus the cabaret dancing of Angie Pontani. The crowd was amped both nights, especially for the masked men of Los Straitjackets who closed out the second night. It was another fun weekend of great music at the Jersey Shore.

The Hi-Tide Summer Holiday will return to Asbury Park August 18-20, 2023.

Michael is an Asbury Park based photographer of what life puts in front of him. He snuck his camera into a concert for the first time in 2011 when he went to see Soundgarden on their reunion tour. Two of those shots ended up being published in Photofantasm Soundgarden: Nudedragons to King Animal, and he has been bringing his cameras to shows ever since. He relocated to Asbury in 2019 for its rich music and art scenes...and to save on tolls! He is a big supporter of the local music scene and has become well known amongst the bands for his photos. Michael is also a regular vendor at the Asbury Park Punk Rock Flea Market and can be found selling his prints at a variety of local markets.
