It's coming, it's coming....

Man, that would be SWEET! (And very much appreciated!)

And I hope someone caught Exotiki on film! Watching kevin Stewart (Dartin Menny) play the bass is like watching a master painter at work. Every note is fat and delicious, and goddamn groovy!

Oh, and they had Skip Heller on guitar!

Thank you, Tiki Kitty, for some Smokin' Menehunes LOVE!! (I thought we played a pretty darn good set!)

Mick - you guys are always a highlight for us, so the pleasure was ours. Wish I could have taken some video too, but I didn't have enough room on my memory card. As it was, I was hastily deleting old pics to make room for more that day. I just saw the video Scott posted. Good stuff!

The Smokin Menehunes are great.
I love old school Hawaiian music , as well as Exotica, and surf.
Good Music is good music, I wish more people would come see the Menehunes on Fridays at the Fish Kitchen.
(once a month)
and every 3 months or so at Busters Beach House in Los Alamitos Harbor.

as for the thanks to me for helping,
thank you, but it was really nothing.
Chris asked me to line up some bands, and be the stage manager for the 2 bar rooms.
cake walk, and right up my alley,
Not hard at all, and my pleasure to help out in a way that I could.

Chris and Karen and the other volunteers did much more than I did.

Thanks again to all who came, donated and helped put this together.

That Menehunes video is killer. Bonger, just owning it on the steel guitar!

I'm bummed that The Hula Girls couldn't be there for the benefit. Looks super fun from the pictures... I was busy getting waves and getting drunk in Mazatlan... Still recovering from it. BUT we'll see you all in Palm Springs on Friday!!

If they put together a round two benefit for Marie, I would love to play on it!

So I was totally remiss in not thanking Jeff for the absolutely awesome lineup and coordination of bands. Seriously, it was crazy. Jeff, you should quit your day job and put together shows.

That's fantastic! The Smokin' Menehunes circa 1972 (from a tourist's vacation in Waikiki Beach's captured on super 8 film!)

Just read on Facebook that Don's said they've raised over $12,000 so far! Fantastic. Looked like a hugely successful benefit & congrats to everyone involved. Hope your days get better & better all the time, Marie~ Yous two, JonPaul.

It's all been said so many times in this thread but I simply must add my thanks to Chris, Karen, Big Tiki Dude, and Don's and all the artist that donated their work.
It was one of the best events I've ever been to. So many wonderful people in one place, for such a great cause....good times. Being a huge fan, I've come to EXPECT Tikiyaki to be AMAZING, and yet I'm always AMAZED that they are better than I EXPECTED. I can't say enough good things, so I'll leave it at that.

All the bands kicked ass, (I can't wait to see Slacktone at Forbidden Island next week) but Glasgow Tiki Shakers??? I had never seen them before, but they quickly became one of my favorites.

I left there feeling guilty for winning so many outstanding raffle prizes.

Last, but not least, Thank you to Jon Paul. He graciously gave the update on Marie at least a thousand times and never seemed bothered by people asking. Hats off to you sir.

So, same time next month?

We had a great time thanks to all involved. Not just 8 bands... but 8 very good bands. The Boardwalkers early set was awesome. One would think that Jon Paul would have been wiped out after that energetic set, but he had plenty left for Tikiyaki later. Thanks to BTD for getting my request of "Avalon Slip" to Slacktone, an exotically beautiful song that they usually don't play live (too slow).....Dusty rocked on drums. Smokin Menehunes and Exotiki in the bar...excellent. Glasgow Tiki Shakers and Tikiyaki Orchestra in the big room were as good and consistant as ever. I hope the raffle winners of the stuff we brought (Don The Beachcomber, Rincon Room, TikiTony, Kahiki) are happy. Love you Marie.

Results are 1/2 in!!!! I am still waiting on a few checks to clear and a few donors are still sending $$, but I know people are waiting to know how much we raised for Marie.....Well........

OVER $13,600!!!!! And that DOES NOT include the portion of the proceeds that Don the Beachcomber will be donating!!!

We still have a few event posters. I will be getting those out next week...I have to get the tubes for mailing and figure that into the shipping and handling...It won't be much, but I don't want to ruin any posters!

(I will list as many names of the donors as possible soon!)
