The Tiki Bash was without a doubt a memorable event (that is what I remember of it!). It included all the usual suspects as well as new tiki-loving faces.

Holden, you are the Man! Mucho Mahaloz for all your hard work.

(Now back to sleep)

Hi Everybody,

I must say that the party was a rockin' good time and let it be known that there is no way that it could have happened without the help of Bamboo Ben and Danny Gallardo and my colleagues Preston, Jorge & Lisa! We banged out some late nights there together setting the thing up and it wouldn't have been what it was without their help - Ben's giant Trader Vic's bar and Danny's painstakingly hand-built volcano were key to the function and form of this thing!

The artists... Jimmy C., Drew Brophy, Joe Vitale (who came all the way out from Florida), Squid (let it be known that I had no idea that he was bringing that little blue guy with the thing sticking out of his stomach!), Marcus Pizzuti (also thanks to Marcus for the last minute Easter Island set-up), Crazy Al, Danny Gallardo & Ben again and of course Shag who had the tiring job of signing... 14 decanter sets! It was all I could do to make his boxed sets happen due to the usual last minute glitch's - all that pre-booked are covered!

The Bands... King Kukulele & the Friki Tikis (did anybody notice that sitting in on vibes was none other than DJ Bonebreak - the drummer for my all time favorite band "X"...???), The Mag-Neatos and their fast and furious rockabilly surf and the Eliminators (with my biz colleague Preston on rhythm guitar) cranking out ultra surf classics as they are essentially one of THE ultra classic surf bands from So Cal!

Sven - our fearless leaders return was the key event of the night (unless you include some late night scantilly clad antics that I happened upon in various areas of the party and the outside grounds!)... I'm curious to know if there will be any tiki bash babies arriving in about 9 months!?! Sven's return was momentus (Reserved For "Insert a photo of Sven's head here")!! Welcome back Sven!!

Well, I hope you all had a great time - after I finally got to slow down and enjoy myself I looked around and saw what appeared to be a lot of people enjoying themselves. That's what it's all about and why the good people at tiki central spend our time here conversing with one another... let's do this thing again, ok?

Holden

I'd also like to throw in a last thank you to Hanford and Mig for keeping this site up so well and allowing us to air topics like these and other fun/irreverent and occasioinal dirty laundry topics whenever we see fit!

........in the immortal words of Joey Ramone, "Somebody put something in my drink!"
Was it you Holden?? Or King Ku Ku ? C'Al? Bax? Bong? Al Shelly? Tina? Sven? Judy? Shag? Chiki? Wes?

I'll find out and when I do, I'll thank you personally!!!

Wow! What a blast!! I haven't cut loose in a loooooooong time! To be 86ed/cut off from my own portable Trader Vics Tiki Bar was an honor!

Mahalos to the four animals at "Tiki Farm" for a night................................. I'll never remember!!

Holden,

Thanks again for an incredible night! Tina and I had a blast and it was great partying with you all again!

I don't know how you do it, Holden, but you make everyone feel welcome and we truly appreciate your efforts.

Also, kudos to all the incredible talented artists and performers and people behind the scenes who made it happen. And Aloha to all you friendly Centralites out there!

Can't wait for the next bash!

Aloha,

Arty

PS - Thanks for the beer, Bamboo Ben! And no, it wasn't me who put somethin' in your drink!

Polynesian Popster,

For whatever reason, my emails to your address come back as undeliverable. I'll try again later.

(yeah, I know this should be off site, but hey)

What a wonderful evening !! I take my straw hat off to Holden. Great to see all my Tiki friends old and new. Everyone was in true form. Fantastic job by Trader Vics. Looking forward to the next event. As usual, I will be posting PICS very soon.

Holden, that bash was a blast and well worth the drive. Your generosity is greatly appreciated. I'm glad my wife finally met some of my Tiki Idols and a whole bunch of other cool people...and it was truly an honor to play Gilligan's Island pinball with Sven.

Tiki Bong,

How many times did you go to the bathroom that night? Your pink mug seemed bottomless.

Many thanks for a great night... I really had a lot of fun and enjoyed meeting many of the collectors and appreciators of this unique culture that has developed over the last decade. I would love to collaborate with someone to write a review of this event for my magazine, "The Dumb Angel Gazette." If anyone is interested in putting their memories to paper, email me at:

bcxists@aol.com
