Venture Mania is playing?? Awesome!
...and fyi, I have one of those Nocturne pedals. They sound great! Like a pre-amp that really boosts and clarifies your tone and signal.
This is gonna be a killer event! Did I mention that yet?

You can see demos from the builder of the pedal, here... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ylqsgzHR7j8&feature=related
It was originally designed to give your Gretsch guitar the bite that Setzer gets in his tone... Cool pedal... I don't use it in The Hula Girls though.

Steve Irvin Surfboards has donated this fantastic 9' longboard. It will be available in the raffle or silent auction. The board will be signed by The Eliminators and hopefully Eddie. A huge thank you to Steve Irvin Surfboards for their generosity.

Wow. Step back and think for a minute. A surfboard, guitar, effect pedal, band merch, and money via paypal all donated by members of this site. Not to mention the time and care donated by Jeff and other organizers, and the time & talent & music of the bands playing. It's pretty awe inspiring to see such an amazing level of support just to help someone (a surf legend, but still, just one person). Truly amazing Smile

This transcends social networking. This is true community, and I am honored to be a part of it. You are all awesome Smile
And with that said... I cant wait till Saturday!!!




See some of ya Sat.

What a great event !!

Surf music legends and some of the best of the Third Wave playing 8 hours of non-stop music in a historic Tiki palace.

And all for a great cause !! This was a great celebration of tribal love and community.

A big THANK YOU to BigTikiDude for organizing such a fantastic day.

Everyone had a great time and from what I understand successfully raised a lot of well needed funds for Eddie.

The room(s) were packed...



Here's BTD with Eddie who was able to attend for a short time...



I wish I could have gotten more shots of the bands but it was super crowded up near the stage. The highlight of the event was former Bel-Airs and Showmen jamming through some of their classics. That's Paul Johnson second from left, Dick Dodd (and former Mouseketeer) on drums, and DTBC regular (and former Nocturne) Jim Frias on sax. I forgot the person who was channeling Eddie but he was great (help BTD).



Here's the Eliminators with Surf music historian (and 2nd-Wave Nightrider) Jon Blair second from left.

They did a stunning Surf music version of "Bali Hi".



Tiki Central role call for the day...

left (Trevor, Tiki Kitty, "Ding Dong Devil" Caltiki), right (Chris of chrisandsarahb, Dinah, "Hula Girl" Spike)


left ("Insect Surfer" JonPaul, Mr. J), right (Jungle Ginger, Atomic Tiki Punk, Mrs. Caltiki)


left (Kick The Reverb & his daughter), right (Whorehay aka Mambo King & Dana)


Oops, I can't find HappyChi in any of my pictures. Sorry Stacey.

And oh yeah, Crazy Al showed up towards the end.
