Friday August 27th, 2004 and every last Friday of the Month 10PM No
Cover

This month at Tiki Taix, King Kukulele proudly introduces to the Tiki World The Enchanting Alani Sisters!! One of the newest and most versatile singing trios in the country today The Alani Sisters features the high energy “New School Polynesian Music” in a fresh new sister act. Direct from the seaport of Lahaina on the Island of Maui the three sisters U’ualani, Mealani, and Shealani were performing at a very young age with their father, a Southseas sailor. From port to port the sisters would visit with local people and learn about their music and culture. Tonight they perform for the first time at Tiki Taix, one block north of the lagoon, and learn a little about our local music.

AND!

Iuka Grogg and Waikiki Jones of The Mai Kai Gents bring you “Talk Story” the Hawaiian version of “VH-1’s Storytellers”. Now you can hear not only the magical tunes of yester year on uke and lap steel, but hear the tales behind the tunes.

ALSO!!

Rodd Grogg reporting live from The Tonga Room in Northern California! San Francisco by the golden gate. This will be the first live sattelite feed ever to the Tonga Room as Rodd Grogg brings you the scoop. For those of you who haven’t been, the Tonga Room was named best Tiki Bar in San Francisco.

PLUS!

Lost to the world for 50 years, this vintage 8mm film was found in its canister in Leucadia, Ca. a whopping 2574 miles from where it was shot in Honolulu Hawaii. Take a rare look at this gem and remember the good old days. Highlights include a hula show on the lanai, and passengers on deck of a cruise liner.

AND!

King Kukulele and The Friki Tikis bring a mix of old and new songs, some Hapa Haole and maybe an improvised classic or two.

ALSO!

Here comes THE GHOST OF THE RETURN OF EXOTICA KARAOKE!!!!!

PLUS!

The re-debut presentation of an award winning commercial featuring King Kukulele. Don’t miss this chance to see director Gavin Carlton’s winner of “Best Commercial” at the 2004 Valley Film Festival in a rare public showing.

Join us for this one night only night one time. We'll be at Tiki Taix 1911 Sunset Blvd. in Echo Park 90026 One block north of the lagoon.

Can't wait! I've gotta stock up on my castanets, anyhow.

Exciting news for those of you who'll be there tonight--I CLEANED MY CAR! Full detail job, inside & out. Feel free to come out to the parking lot and admire my little beauty. Anyone care to guess what color it really is?

Well, there's always a few folks who get there a bit earlier, 9ish, to get dinner. And before then, you could just hang out at Tiki-Ti and let the Mikes entertain you!

thanks for the advice, Humu! I can't believe I haven't been to either! How far am I from the Tiki-Ti? I'm at Highland and Fountain, working on a cartoon!

Don't tell me you washed off my writing of "ALOHA" on your windshield.

See you all tonight.

Crazy-close, just over 3 miles (tho it'll still take you ~15mins.

You can't be serious. Less than 20 minutes away, incuding traffic.

PS Birds on Fountain and Beachwood may also be having a tiki weekend.

Sadly, I did. Although from inside the car, it said "AHOLA"--but as I told Tiki Bird, AHOLA EVIL is my motto.
