A friend of Jonpaul and I, who lives in Australia
just sent me a e-mail saying he and his wife are planning on
flying to So. Cal. to come to Tiki Oasis and SG101 convention.

Love it when people go Hard Core like that!

I have been getting inquiries about the cost of the event,
and what about pre-sale tix.

We are not selling tix in advance, if you are coming from far away,
(Nor. Cal. or out of state)and want to be assured a ticket to the event.
Please e-mail me directly at
Bigtikidude@yahoo.com, and I will put you on a list of guaranteed entrants.

The Cost for the Convention this year will be 30 dollars.
Considering that the cost of The Guitar Geek Fest is 55 or 60 dollars,
and Tiki Oasis is between 70 and 105 plus dollars.
I don't think that I am gouging the attendees. I hope that everyone understand that there is 2 European bands, and 4 bands that are coming from East of the Rocky mountains, and The cost of travel these days is not cheep. I would like to be able to pay the bands well to help cover those costs. 10 Hours divided by 30 dollars is 3 dollars an hour.
Is that really that much?

Thanks for understanding.
Jeff(bigtikidude)

Nothing to explain, Jeff. I was at the last event...and you clearly know how to throw a good party. 30 bucks for all those bands is well worth it.
I also know that most of the bands you showcase represent the best of the genre.

$30 is still a fantastic price for the line-up, I'd pay twice that and still feel like I was getting a fair deal.

Again I'd encourage anyone who has even a casual or passing interest in Surf Music to attend. This isn't just 'Old Guys in Bad Hawaiian Shirts' playing "Pipeline" and "Wipeout" over and over, this Third (Fourth?) Wave of Surf music is really innovative and exciting. It's like what Tikiyaki Orchestra has done with Exotica music, taken a mid-century genre and updated it (vs. imitating it) while still retaining its "soul".

Also the (pre-Surf) Rumblers and (THE 2nd-Wave pioneer) Jon & the Nightriders reunions will be very rare appearances, not to mention the visiting European bands.

Los Alamitos is right around the corner for me. I'm not going to T.O this year, but I think I may have to make this event.

Jeff, great line up and thanks for working with me (Tiki Oasis) in trying to cross-book the out of town bands so they can put together a tour. We were able to offer gigs to Los Venturas and The Exotics. Unfortunately, The Barbwires were not able to stay a week in order to make both gigs so they are only playing at Tiki Oasis.

Surf music fans, I cannot encourage you enough to mark this historic show on your calendars.
The Barbwires will be playing tunes from their epic SeaRider CD

Mike sent me this photo last week. Summer is near and The Barbwires are excited to play Southern California, but they are only playing this one show - Tiki Oasis Friday night, August 17

Otto,
My pleasure, its been great working with you.
I too was bummed that Mike and the Barbwires cannot make SG101,
but super stoked that they are playing at Tiki Oasis.

I have seen them before and they are AMAZING, and a MUST SEE.
Get Yer Tix to see the Barbwires at Tiki OASIS 12 now.

So stoked for this.

Just added to the Event, in the Legends of Surf Jam.
The Nocturnes, Feat. Jim Frias on sax.
(Some of you may know him from sitting in with the Hula Girls)

Here is a pic of him at Don's holding the cd of the Noctunres Rare Surf vol. 2
that they are on.



If you can find either one of these cds, get them,
The Nocturnes recordings were never released in the 60s,
but a lot of bands have covered Some of the Nocturnes songs,
mainly 3 rd star to the Left.

Rare Surf Vol. 2


or

American Surf Treasures Vol. 2

Time to toot my own horn,
because of events like the SG101 convention, and helping book bands at the HB surf Museum.
I got an award the other day,
