Guantanamo Baywatch

Guantanamo Baywatch are a group from Portland determined to bring good, trashy fun back to rock & roll.

The band formed in 2009 by guitarist Jason Powell and bassist Chevelle Wiseman. Releasing a self-titled album that quickly went out of print, Guantanamo Baywatch began touring aggressively through the Pacific Northwest and up and down the West Coast, earning a reputation for their manic live shows, gloriously tacky stage wear, and enthusiastically greasy approach to surf music. In 2011, they signed with Portland garage punk label Dirtnap Records and released their album “Chest Crawl” in the spring of 2012. The group dropped its third long-player “Darling... It's Too Late” in 2015. For their fourth album, Guantanamo Baywatch expanded to a quartet, with second guitarist Jordan Owen debuting on the group's 2017 release Desert Center.
