It is with great pleasure that I announce that our very own TC member Formikahini, also known as Alice Berry, will be a featured vocalist with Robert Drasnin and orchestra at Hukilau 2005!

For those of you that didn't know, Formikahini was a vocalist with the legendary Athens band Hillbilly Frankenstein and countless other ventures. I just can't wait to see and hear her perform this material!!

I can remember the first Hukilau in 2002 - Atlanta when Alice took the stage with Johnny Knox!! And from one Southern Belle to another - good to have you back where you belong darlin'!!!

That's, like, whoa! That's fantastic. On the one hand, it's no surprise -- 'cause this is the one and only Miss Formica Dinette we're talking about. But on the other hand -- well done, sugar plum! Can't wait to see it in action.

I am getting a kick out of this thread becasue I booked Alice for this gig in like March, and forgot that it was supposed to be on the QT for a few months. Ha - the cat's out of the bag.

Any other TC memeners want to join the 12-piece Drasnin combo?

We still need marimba and percussion (ethnic/exotic - not drum kit) to complete the lineup.

You must be able to get your self and your gear to the Hukilau in time for a noon rehersal on Thursday October 6 and to the gig on Friday October 7 at about 9:30 PM. Some pay is involved.

You must be a pro musiciann with pro gear and the ability to sight-read music.

Thanks for all the sweet words, y'all!

I'm about to *POP* with excitement! The chance to get to sing with Drasnin and to sing in front of Yma Sumac - well,it just doesn't GET any better for a modern exotica singer!!

But best of all is getting to be a performing part of Hukilau (besides go-go dancing with Humuhumu on the bar in the penthouse ), and getting to feel like I added something to the already magical event....well......*wow*. I can die now.

(well, AFTER Hukilau, in case you're reading this thread, Mr. Reaper.)

I hereby make a nomination that for Hukilau weekend, Ms. Formikahini shall be officially known as 'Yma Formikahini' -- we need at least one singing Yma during Hukilau!

And that is not a Texan accent you hear, but a strange New Jersey coastal dialect, and her real name is actually Amy Inihakimrof.

Oh, wow, I just read the super-sad news of Mz Sumac's having to pull out

Ok, ikitnrev, I shall take you up on your challenge to be the only Yma present.

Although anyone else is free to let loose with their inner diva.
