The Waboritas is the name of Sammy Hagar's backup band, though they are frequently referred to as "The Wabos". They were formed in 1997 and have been active ever since. Their only hiatus was during the Van Halen tour of 2004, during which Hagar kept them fully paid.

They include Sammy Hagar's former Justice Brothers bandmate drummer David Lauser, who played on several of Sammy Hagar's solo albums before the formation of The Waboritas. The band also once included keyboardist Jesse Harms, known from several of Sammy Hagar's previous solo albums.

Though not a member of the band, former Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony (who was with the band from 1974-2002, and again from 2003-2005) has made frequent guest appearances with the Wabos. Wabo member Vic Johnson is now part of the Mad Anthony Xpress, Michael Anthony's new band.
