Come dressed as a zombie going to the beach! Basic makeup may be available but it is suggested that you provide your own just to be sure you have some. For tips and ideas on how to look like a zombie go here.
There will be prizes for the best beach zombies! So go all out with your outfit! You may go home with something other than another zombie!
Makeup artists from will be on hand at the Philly Zombie Beach Party where you can have a professional makeup artist do your zombie makeup for you (just $10.00 - artists keep 100% of the fee). If you do decide to have one of them do your makeup for you we highly suggest that you get in as early as possible since there is always a line for the makeup artists.
From the murky depths of the Delaware River, comes the tri-state area's premier surf/spy band, the Sharkskins! Da 'Skins are a group of individuals summoned by the spirit of the great Watusi Tuna Kahuna, the Atlantic god of surf and dance to go forth and bring sounds inspired by his greatness. Come and feel the power & the fury of the reverb-drenched sound of da 'Skins and soon, you too will bow at the altar of the "Big Tuna Kahuna"!
DJ Kiltboy first became interested in spinning tunes in the early 1990s. He was highly influenced by the vast amounts of music he worked with during his tenure at Tower Records in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania. DJ Sonny, a coworker and friend, helped train him in the technical and artistic methods of being a disc jockey. Most of DJ Kiltboy’s first gigs were private parties for friends, as well as working events with DJ Sonny. His musical influences include early industrial, such as Einsturzende Neubaten and Kraftwerk, electronica, and new wave. Throwing high-energy parties and creating a welcoming space are Kiltboy’s main goals.
Currently, DJ Kiltboy is helping to develop the Central Pennsylvania gothic industrial scene. He hosts Shadowland Lancaster twice monthly at Bube’s Brewery in Mount Joy, with his partner Dave Ghoul. In addition to the goth-industrial club scene, DJ Kiltboy also spins at the Square Bar, a local pub in West Chester, Pennsylvania. He proudly performs at the annual Funky Formal for the cast and crew of the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire (PARF). He continues to spin for private parties, weddings and other events.
