Celebrating 59 years of OPA!

A Greek festival is an extravaganza for the senses. Sights, smells, and sounds transport our guests in a virtual visit to Greece and nothing pulls it all together more than the music! Our main stage features “The Olympians” from Long Beach, a versatile Greek band who provide both traditional and modern rhythms that won’t let you sit still.

Featuring Bouzouki, Baglama, Tzoura, Vocals, Ethnic Clarinet(Klarino), Keyboards, Guitar, Bass and Doumbek/Drums/Percussion, their unique versions of folk music to Greek Greatest hits is the call to come together to celebrate and dance the night away!

Hohlax Trio-The HOHLAX trio was formed in 2007 on the Greek island of Amorgos. The name HOHLAX refers to the beach HOHLAKAS, where the members of the group have spent many happy hours.

Hohlax Trio is comprised of trained professional musicians experienced in musical education and performance in both Greece and the United States. In addition to the four CDs which they have released, their performances have been broadcast on radio and television.

Hohlax tours include but are not limited to, concerts, dance events, festivals, performance and talks at universities, private parties and dances. The members include violinist Jaime Smith, bouzouki player and songwriter Orestis Koletsos and Stamatis Petsakos vocals and guitar.
