I'm partial to "Toes on the Nose"...

Please let there be some smokin' saxophone at the show !!

Some might consider Eddie as #2 to Dick Dale's #1 but you know what ?? At least Eddie never tried to sing.

Also Tikiphiles in attendence must drink double their normal quantity of Tropical cocktails to make up for the teetotaling Surf Music geeks. This will encourage Art to have more Surf Music events in the Tiki bar.

John,

almost all of Eddie's songs are great,
my favorite is "Border Town"

There will be Some Sax at the show.
Jim Frias of the 60's band the Nocturnes,
will be playing with the Legends Jam doing songs of the Bel Airs,
and Eddie and the Showmen.
And The Eliminators have a Great Sax player too.
Both of these guys wail.


as for Drinking,
I was told that both of the Back Bars will be open,
as well as the front bar.
I think there may be Beer specials.

Jeff(btd)

There's no doubt this will be a fun event with great music, but next Sat might also be a unique pop cultural milestone.

If you think of two enduring mid-century art forms, that were both native to Southern California, what comes to mind ?? Yes Tiki-style and Surf Music !!

In BigTikiDude's upcoming event, you have legendary icons for both.

Don the Beachcomber was inarguably the Poly-Pop seed that sprouted Tiki-style. Now while the Sunset Beach DTBC is not an original Don's, it's certainly an authentic Tiki palace that is true to the brand.

Also while Dick Dale is considered "The King of the Surf Guitar", consider that the Bel-Air's "Mr. Moto" was actually released BEFORE Dick Dale's first hit "Let's Go Trippin". I'm not sure if Eddie will physically be able to attend, but his discography will be performed, some songs by musicians of that era.

And has a Surf Music event of this size (arguably enough bands to be considered a festival) ever taken place in a mid-century Tiki establishment ??

Please consider the documented link between the two cultures, i.e. the "Surfin' Tiki" chapter in BOT and the "Tiki Surfah" chapter of "Pop Surf Culture" (by Brian Chidester & Domenic Priore, a book lesser known on TC but invaluable reading).

Also both "art forms" peaked right before the rise of the 1960's counter culture and experienced a revival decades later. (Approx 20 years for Surf Music and 30 years for Tiki).

This is a pretty cool combo if you ask me.

Very cool,
thanks for that Post John O.

and I am pretty sure that Eddie will be there.

Update,
Jimmy Roberts, Dick Dodd, and Art Fisher, of the Bel Airs will be there,
and playing in the Bel Airs portion of the event.

a reminder for anyone that is coming to the show,
I have a feeling its going to sell out,
so please please please get there early to make sure you get in.
noon to 1 pm is suggested.
we have 250 tix for sale at the door.

if you are coming from another state,
please e-mail me with you full name, and if you have a guest.
and I will put you on a reserve list to make sure you get in.
You still have to pay 20 bucks of course,
but this is a RSVP for a ticket since you are coming from far away.

thanks
Jeff(btd)

This was posted on Facebook by Don the Beachcomber so here it is cut and pasted from there for you Faceless TikiCentralers...

"THIS JUST IN: Dick Dodd (Drums), Jimmy Roberts (Piano) & Art Fisher (guitar) will join Paul Johnson & Jim Frias for the Bel Airs tribute ** Dick Dodd, John Blair, Jim Frias, John Benton & Matt Quilter will be doing the Eddie & the Showmen portion! ** Deke Dickerson's Venturemania (feat Deke, Garret of the Ghastly Ones, Mel Bergmen of the Phantom Surfers, & Chris Sprague of the Sprague Bros) will perform a short 15 min. set 6:45-7pm! How amazing is this going to be?
