That was one hell of a time. I didn't know what I was missing by not going to the Sunday brunches before this one! What a scene. ...and Jesse Dayton and the Railbenders played the week before us.... Damn!

Anyway, Tiki-A-fair and Hillbilly Jeff throw one hell of a party. They have every right to post their events here on Tiki Central. Everyone should be going to these shows. They were great hosts to our band, and I couldn't believe the crowd that they managed to get to show up on a Sunday in downtown LA.

By the way, the Redwood Room, alone, is a great reason to go to their brunch. Some of the best in vintage nautical decor, hidden away on a non-descript street in LA. A really cool place. Every painting in there is either of a shipwreck, a mermaid, or a big storm at sea. Awesome...

Thanks again to everyone who came out to see us, and to Jeff and Cher for hooking us up with the show.




Ah thanks your way too kind. I am so happy you enjoyed yourself, it was great to have you play for us. Not too mention everyone in The Hula Girls seems like such nice fellows. You guys were great and I am glad I got meet you all. It was a fun mix up of bands and everyone was wonderful.

Yes brunch is fun, the great thing is your never tired for work the next day and you still have just as much fun as you would a night show. Please come to some of our shows, we would love to see you again. If you dont see a post under California events you can might find them under tiki music. Some amazing shows coming up. Hope to you see soon

Hey guys! Wow, what a great time! Loved your music, loved all of it. Nice bar, good food, fab cocktails. Nobody dances? Well, I always will even if it's in the aisles! All good. What a great way to spend Sunday. Lucas, it was great to meet you, and nice to see Soccer Tiki - good luck with the car, that was a real crappy thing to have happen to you. I looked for you guys before we left and you were gone, so I assumed you found a ride home. Hope to meet more of you next time! XO, Kiki v.



People usually do dance up a storm, including me and Hillbilly Jeff but I hurt my knee and was giving it some rest. It's hard to swing dance on carpet but they are talking of putting down a dance floor soon. Glad you had a nice time and come back soon.

The advanced level of musicianship exhibited by all the bands on Sunday just blew me away! These were not run-of-the-mill generic bands, but bands that could actually play and featured stunning instrumentalists. People keeping the great traditions of Buck Owens, Bob Wills and other fantastic period artists alive. Needless to say I was more then impressed.

Nice to meet you too, Kiki, and Tiki-affair, THANKS for letting us play there. We had an awesome time, and the place is beautiful. Very vintage feel.

Is it Tiki? At this point, I don't really care. This brunch thing is routinely getting great musicans to play, in styles you just don't hear every day. I would rather listen to these bands then some that have been advertised as being "tiki" (even headlining major tiki festivals) yet have not even a passing affiliation with anything Tiki.

This hillbilly and rockabilly stuff attracts a lot of people who have the vintage vibe, and enjoy outstanding music. I will be back, and I hope our band is also invited back!

hahaha

It's a shame that there's this hype now... there's been so many great bands that have played Jeff's Brunch shows in the past!

The man has ALWAYS put on killer shows.

And hopefully, finally, the snobs on here will stop giving Tiki-a-Fair the business when she posts the Brunch schedules! (Now that it has the 'stamp' of approval by some regulars on here)

Yee Haw for Hillbilly Brunch!!!

I am just sorry I missed your band last time. Everyone said how great it was...

My problem is that I don't always have the energy to just get out and go to gigs (unless I am playing), etc...it's really rare for me! But that may stop. There is too much good stuff going on to stay all cooped up at home!

No worries Lucas. I wasn't referring to Exotiki. haha Sorry if that's how it sounded... and... actually it should be I that's doing the apologizing. I had a rehearsal that started at 4pm Sunday and I couldn't get out of it. It was paid. I heard Hula Girls were great!

But, there have been a LOT of good bands (especially the touring ones) that have played Jeff's Brunch. And either there's tons of heads in the joint or it's empty.
Bands that deserve a good lively crowd that just didn't have it... it's great to hear that more people are catching on.

It's good to know that there are still people who enjoy good live music.

The Redwood Bar is perfect for what Jeff is doing. Not that there was anything wrong with the old Safari Sams location.... it's just that Redwood Bar is more intimate and amazingly vibey.

Anytime you can walk into a venue and feel like you just set sail on a cruise with the best Country/Honky Tonk/Rockabilly (and now more Tiki/Hula) bands as your entertainment is a good refreshing change to the stale shit that's out there still.

Keep coming out and supporting not only great Roots Music bands, but the guy who keeps putting on these great shows with these great bands!

cool deal,
I will talk to Dave at PO about it,
probably spring time.

as for the Americana Brunches.
I'm not a huge fan of Rockabilly/roots rock/country.
and only have a hand full of cds (10 at the most)
but I respect the musicianship so much, that its worth my while to go see,
some great local, and touring bands.

Keep up the Great Work Hillbilly Jeff, and Tiki a Fair.

Jeff(bigtikidude)

Thanks big Tiki Dude, we plan to never stop! I will be a cute little granny and Jeff an old hillbilly and you'll still find us involved in music some way or the other. Someone has to represent these bands and get them out there as we all know the radio does not play them or keep this kind of music alive.
