I so love it when a shred of evidence for a never before known-of Tiki Temple gets discovered - and then family members appear and add information and material. But how often does that happen with an unknown Exotica artist !!? And all the way to finding the actual performer, and the recordings? Congrats to all involved !

My sister and I, as kids, used to watch the Jerry Sun Show from backstage at the Hacienda Hotel in Las Vegas during many family visits. Jerry would put chairs for us by the stage door and, at the age of about 12 to 14, I was watching a REAL Vegas lounge act from the wings! In addition to this photo, I have a couple of other items from Jerry that I will try to find and post. He was a PHENOMENAL vibes player and showman; a virtuoso, who really put on a great show. I remember some of the songs to this day and how good the band was. People like Jerry Sun are the reason I became a sound man, rather than doing something else. I can't wait to hear the new album! GREAT to find this information online -- I've been looking for a while and I always wondered over the years what had happened to Jerry. Good to see that a new audience is rediscovering his music!

Aloha Hacienda Kid,

Welcome to TC and thank you so much for posting about Jerry Sun. That's a great story about you hanging out backstage during Jerry Sun's performance in Las Vegas. If there is anyway you can scan that article and photo for me it would be greatly appreciated. My email address is
exoteque@gmail.com I would LOVE to read it.

Thanks for ordering a couple copies of the album too, you're gonna love it!

Please post anything Jerry Sun that you have. I'm hoping to put all this info into an article on Jerry.

Cheers and Mahalo,
Jeff
