Had to cut out at 3pm to catch a plane. I was able to enjoy the All-star Jam, Surfside IV, and the Wadadli Riders. What a great event !! Just one of the sets would have been worth the trip.

BigTikiDude had it running like a finely tuned surf guitar. He had to deal with technical issues (he got shocked by an amp chord), management issues (the music was too loud for the waitresses to hear orders), and herd the musicians on time. He did it all like a seasoned professional. I was impressed.

My favorite quote of the day: "It's fun but it's stressful."

Jeff, I think everyone attending appeciates your time, effort, and great Surf music expertise in putting the event together. Thank you !!

One interesting observation: The Surf music crowd doesn't really drink. I was told the Starting Gate was selling more food than booze !!

Had a good time! Even saw Marie there! Very cool that Woohoo Wahine was running the door! (I really tried my best to sneak in for free, but the image in my mind of an enraged soccer tiki tracking me down and delivering a smack down scared me too much!)

The fabulous Insect Surfers with Jonpaul!








And the man himself!

Great show!

What an extremely well organized event with killer bands. I really enjoyed myself.
In my opinion BTD has this thing completely dialed-in. Bravo.

happen ,coupled with I am trying to get a bunch of lamps done for Oasis .
BTW Jeff have you ever heard of a band out of Costa Mesa called the
"Alejandros Awesome Surf band " ? Saw them play late one night at La Cave and
they sounded good.I Picked up one of their CDS .

Not only is BTD a world's leading authority on Surf Music, he's also an accomplished musician in his own right. Here he is performing to one of the most discerning and rabid audiences on the subject.

He held his own with some of the best !!



Here's WoohooWahine tirelessly manning the door.



Joe Banks and Tikiyaki made many Tiki/Exotica converts out of the Surf Music nerds, um I mean fans. Now all we have to do is teach them how to drink.



And who says Surf musicians can't be "exotic". Here's the Wadadli Riders by way of Antigua (Caribbean) and Italy. They did a great set !!

This was a great event.

Say what you want about BTD and his surf music obsession, but he put together a well organized, publicized and attended event.

Bands and fans from all over the world, pioneers from the original surf bands, and the newer guys all coming together and laying it down....great stuff, and unlike other events like this, the bands actually made money, from what I understand.

Hell, I sold lots of Tikiyaki CD's, mostly due to main man and super salesman Kirby, who was giving all the surf geeks the hard sell on the Tikiyaki Orchestra.

Kudos to BTD and this event.

Now, if we can get a more "tropical" looking venue, that would really be something.
