Wow! What a great time. Thanks to all those who put the event together. We were there all day, and it flew by. Great people, artists, bands, food & drinks, and atmosphere. We even took home a raffle item!

We don't know Marie personally (Don's is a bit far to be our "local"), but we were definitely moved to go and show our support. The positive vibe that ran throughout the night was evident. Get well soon Marie!

Kevin

I really had a great time! So many of my favorite TCers all in one place!

The bands were truly awesome.

Exotiki....wow! As usual. We need to see more of this band.

Glascow Tiki Shakers ROCKED the HOUSE! Three people, and they were sounding especially heavy!

Slacktone. Yep, BTD, you were right. These guys made me like surf music! A very adventurous and musically sophisticated band..

And Tikiyaki orchestra...really, what can one say? Simply the best of the best!

Unfortunately, I did not see any band that played before Slacktone...but thanks everyone for making this a great event for Marie and Jonpaul!

Now bring on the pix, please!!!!!!!

That was too much fun! 10 plus hours just blew by.
Felt more like a couple of hours. Fun hopping from
room to room hanging out with everyone.

Many Mahalos to the dynamic duo Chris and Karen for all that
you guys did for this event. You rock! Thanks to all the volunteers, Jeff(btd), bands,
artists, donations, patrons, Art Synder and the DTB staff for making this a smashing success.

We are glad we were a part of such a wonderful event!

Get well soon Marie! We miss you!

All the best,

Jason and Claudette

There were quite a few cameras clicking away during the night.
Let's see those photos.

I am assuming that most everybody is pretty wiped out after yesterday.
I have a feeling that the pics will be popping up later tonight or tomorrow after everybody starts to recover/decompress after that long day.

Yesterday was awesome! Everyone involved did an AMAZING job!!! It ran so smooth and everyone was having a blast. Wish Don's was always jumpin' like that!

Thanks for posting the photos (especially the 2 of Exotiki)! We (Exotiki) had a blast playing and were VERY honored to be asked to play. It was great to finally share a bill with Smoking Menehunes and Tikiyaki Orchestra (both bands sounded so good!). Bummed I missed Glasgow Tiki Shakers set... but it was so relaxing in the Dagger, as usual.

Bong and Lucas, it was great to see you two and finally hang out again! You guys sounded great. Even with Jim on percussion ;-P That was really cool. Pat's vocals are always a treat to hear.

TikiShaker, sorry I never got the chance to come up and say HI and have a drink with ya! Good to see you there though!

Tikiyaki, you guys rule! You sounded so good last night. The perfect Night Cap!

Jon Paul, good to see you as well! Please give our love to Marie and let her know we're missing her!
