From 1981 through 2009, the Tidalwaves band performed live concerts annually at Higgins Beach in Scarborough, Maine on or around July 4th.
If you were there, we hope you enjoyed them. If you missed them, 66 songs from various live concerts and recording sessions, including our 1988 cassette "No Day At The Beach", now under the Tsunami record label, have been published on YouTube. Tap 'Tidalwave Videos' on the left menu to see or watch them. For a list of the songs performed over the years, see 'Set Lists'.
The band has been through several changes over the years. See 'History' and 'Band Members'.
To our fans - we thank you for your support over the years. We consider ourselves fortunate to have done what we love and share it with others.
