Get a clue, guys.



Hear, hear! Man, what fun is sneaking around if you're going to announce your presence with the aquatic version of an air horn? Those people are totally un-invited from my next caper.

Glad to hear your bag made it... my bag gave me a scare, too, but it turned out it'd just hopped an earlier flight back. It was much more eager to get home than I was.

Between Hukilau, the Kona/ Hidden Village gig and this past weekend, I can honestly say that this has been one amazing Summer.

Why I've been sitting on the sidelines and not checking out Oasis all these years is beyond me, but I regret it now, after this weekend. Now, NO MORE missing Oasis for me!

Met lots of great peeps from TC....too many to mention, but big Mahalos to Jon Paul and Marie for introducing to everyone...man those 2 know EVERYBODY.

Music was great...especially touching was Robert Drasnin thanking everyone for making his later years exciting....He's one of the originals, and it was amazing to have an Exotica legend still around and willing to perform for us.
Waitiki and the other muzos did a great job bringing the Voodoo albums to life, even tho' the soundman missed alot of the cues.

Ghastly Ones - AWESOME !

King Kukulele was hilarious as usual.

Martini Kings...as always...awesome.

Bosko - symposium was great....Lots of info, and hearing the hostile tone in your voice when talking about today's lame-ass architecture really made your passion for the great design of the 50's and 60's even more apparent. Keep fighting the good fight Cuz !

Jeff Chenault - Really enjoyed the Exotica syposium...one question....Why NO mention of Esquivel ? I know he's more Space Age bachelor pad more than Exotica, but I think he warrants a mention.

I bought me some great stuff too....Gecko, Bosko, Buzzy, Hana Tiki...all good stuff.

Most memorable moment for me was getting into the elevator, seeing the doors close, and hearing the Mai Kai gents playing Blue Suede Shoes with a crowd of a dozen or so people singing along. If you would have told me 20 years ago that I would be in a lounge band, and Rock n' Roll would become elevator music I would've thought you were NUTS....oh the irony.

The room parties and all around drunken debauchery were a hoot to watch, and the Hanalei (I refuse to call it Crown Plaza) is a very nice place to spend a weekend of Tiki.

Great time, and I l can't wait to play next year's Oasis with the Orchestra.

what a bash!!!
I have had many great Tiki Oasis years.
but this one is by far the best one for me.
and I didn't over do it, and go to the bad place.
Like "some did"
there seemed to be many people that were on a mission to not just get drunk,
but to really become Zombies by drinking way too much Rum/booze, and they succeeded.

All the Music was killer, Cudos to Otto for pushing the Limits.
I know there was a few older tiki peeps that thought it was a big too much.
but I think over all the music was a good match for the theme.

thanks to the Nor. Cal. guys for letting me crash in the room,
and djing your pre and after party,Sat.
and The Rum tasting event was really cool idea..

Thanks to Ran for the Many "Undead" drinks, truely awesome man.
and thanks to JonPaul and Marie for letting him use your room to serve in.

Thanks to all that came up and gave Kristena(tiki tena) and I the kind words on our DJ set on Sun. by the pool.
Its always nice to get Props for doing what you love.

I seriously Can't wait for Next years Tiki Oasis. I think I might just blow a gasket, and die.

Cheers to Otto and all that put this great event together, you made my weekend.

Jeff(bigtikidude)

Oh

My

GOD!

I just returned home from the Oasis tonite and it's 12:49 am and I can't sleep cause I've been up til like 3:00 am the past 4 nites! and I can't stop looking at all my pictures!

This was my first Oasis and I had THE best time.....my two girlfriends and I (who were also Oasis virgins) were a tad apprehensive cause we don't know a ton of tiki people (though we frequent FI fairly often) but everyone was super great and hospitable and we made several new friends. thank you to all the fabulous room hosts - that was definitely the highlight of the weekend for me (though I was never able to obtain a room card), especially stumbling into the afterparty in....16? with the Swank Bastards and Hula girl! the spontaneous elevator jam sessions.... the illicit pool hijinx on Friday.....

I took an assload of pics and will post the link to my Flickr page either tomorrow or Wednesday......

Back to reality.....(and no more rum for a LONG while....)

cheers everyone!

Dina
