Producing the fun that's had during summers out east is a hard job, and no one knows that better than Ms. Raya O'Neal. From growing up out east to holding a variety of roles at The Surf Lodge, Raya's a true behind-the-scenes mover and shaker in Montauk, East Hampton and beyond. And with bylines on the likes of Guest of a Guest and Coveteur, you can bet she's got a story or two to tell... Now leading her own agency, Rayality Works, and helping out various businesses go from launch to success, Raya's quickly becoming one to watch not only in the Hamptons, but nationwide. And on a collateral track, Raya's been a leader in key supporter of movements to raise awareness of racial justice and social justice issues on the east end and beyond. We dive deep on the above topics and more on this episode of The Out East Vibes Podcast. If you're truly interested in the Hamptons scene, this episode is one you just can't afford to miss.

Episode 7 - Jesse Bongiovi

Episode 7 - Jesse Bongiovi


Jesse Bongiovi is a man on a mission. From his gut-check days as a walk-on player for the Notre Dame football team, Jesse's no-nonsense focus on hard work and dedication are a far cry from what we expected. After all, we knew we were sitting down with a guy who can also be described as "Bon Jovi's son." (Yes, that Bon Jovi.) However, we at Dune Road Lifestyle know what it's like to be judged by who your parents are, which is why our conversation focused less on the rock star dad and more on the business star son. Jesse Bongiovi co-founded the rosé brand Hampton Water with his college roommate in 2018. In the short number of years since, the brand has seen a meteoric rise in awareness and prestige, earning a 90-point rating from Wine Spectator among a number of other awards. And while it's easy to assume that the brand owes its success to the backing of one of America's most beloved celebrities, the truth is an entirely different story. On this episode of The Out East Vibes Podcast, you'll hear stories of long days on the road, visiting customers from the east coast to west and everywhere in between. There's lessons in bootstrap marketing, creative design, hilarious anecdotes, and, of course, a discussion of Jesse's fave Hamptons spots. And, of course, here's where you can find more Jesse Bongiovi...

Episode 6 - Luke Gulbranson

Episode 6 - Luke Gulbranson


It's easy to write off models and actors as pretty faces with not a lot behind them. But if that's what you think about Luke Gulbranson, you couldn't be more wrong. On this episode of The Out East Vibes Podcast, we sit down with the man himself to see just what makes him tick, how he got to where he's at today, what's next on the horizon, and more. Of course, on this podcast, we've got a rep. for digging deep and unearthing facts about our guests that only few people know, and that's no exception here. For example, how many of you out there know what Luke majored in in college? If you've got this impression of him as a typical hockey jock, the answer is going to shock / impress you. But moreover, this being a Hamptons-focused podcast, we couldn't help but get into the surprising parallels between life out east and life in rural Minnesota (yes, there are parallels there...) and there may just be some video content of a motorcycle ride through Montauk possibly coming to you Summer 2021. Beyond all that, if there's one good reason to listen to this ep., it's the story of a guy who just sets his sights on goals and does anything and everything he can to achieve them. It's a story of grit, ambition, and a willingness to do the work, day in and day out. If you're feeling in any way down about the future, this is the one thing you just absolutely need to hear. 00:39 - Intro 01:04 - Dogs Being Dogs 01:38 - Charity Work With Animals 03:48 - Lake House Vibes 04:02 - Hockey, Obviously 07:50 - Similarities Between The Hamptons & Minnesota (Yes, Those Exist...) 11:51 - The Dichotomy Of Luke 16:00 - Luke's High School Dating Career 17:30 - High School Shenanigans 18:45 - Football, Less Obviously 19:30 - Randy Moss Or Cris Carter? 20:30 - Luke Gulbranson Explains Curling 24:07 - The Importance Of Fast Ice 25:45 - Luke's College Studies 28:30 - Science Doesn't Lie 31:43 - Redoing Floors & Other Home Reno Fun 36:15 - The Birth Of A Business (Making Jewelry & More) 39:56 - Maple Syrup?! 42:35 - That Modeling Life 46:02 - Being Blindfolded And Serenaded 47:20 - The Bud Light Lime Connection 50:05 - How Long Does It Take YOU To Drink A Guinness? 51:05 - Motorcycles, Obviously 53:35 - Carbs, Dieting & Getting After It 54:30 - Cliff Diving In Minnesota? 57:00 - Diving Deep Into Film & TV Projects 01:03:00 - Attack Of The Pears 01:04:26 - Lessons In Entrepreneurship 01:06:18 - Get Luke's Stuff!
