And there's one more thing worth mentioning:

Jay is the author of THIS Tiki horn-of-plenty eye candy feast:

http://www.amazon.com/Tiki-Mugs-Cult-Artifacts-Polynesian/dp/0955339812/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1255273121&sr=1-1

That seems like a happy marriage, the modern but classic L.A. Trader Vic's and Jay's DJ experience. I am not such a purist that I would only demand Marty, Arty and Les to be played at a Tiki Lounge, I like to hear an intelligent mix of vintage and modern. If there ever was someone who could pull that of well, I'd say it's Jay. Well, the Millionaire, too.

Thanks for the kind words, everyone. I'm looking forward to mixing in the vintage exotica we all know and love with other genres that will hopefully create the right mood suitable for a modern tiki bar. Expect to hear Baxter, Denny, Lyman, Drasnin and Ahbez alongside contemporary acts like Karminsky Experience, Tikiyaki, Don Tiki, Waldeck, Koop and many more plus bossa, surf, classic lounge, jazz and some surprises. Here's a few examples, old and new.............Hope to see you there, Jay.

Great to see that you are mixing it up with new stuff, like Tikiyaki, and Surf music also.
I do that also when I am djing events.
I think that you have to go with a wide array of sounds to really set a mood, if appropriate of course.

I am looking forward to hearing you spin.

Yes, Jeff...I think mixing it up a little is the way to go.....especially as it would be good to lure in some non-Tiki people to Trader Vics and let them get a taste of classic exotica as well as some of the contemporary lounge tunes that they may already be acquainted with. BTW I've heard you playing at quite a few events on the scene since I moved out here and have always been impressed by the sounds you've spun.

Here's a couple more things I'll be playing on Thursday nights....

sweet,
can't wait to be there and hear them.

I was just asked to DJ a tiki/surf event in Az. this last weekend,
and I mixed it up, surf, and exotica, and got lots of compliments.

Thanks Otto ! Yeah, that Madonna Inn party was really something special...I hope to play a similar mix of old and new on Thursday night.And I love that Alex Keack album...I only wish he had done a couple more in that style.

I'll be there tonight. A perfect occasion to pay my respects to the downtown Vic's and enjoy the sounds, sights and samplings of fine food and drink.
