Four different organists doing their thing @ the Grinder, c.1975. One guy whom I can only think of as a prankster actually does the theme from The Exorcist! Having pesto dribbling off your chin while thinking of Linda Blair - must've been great for the appetite!

Just picked this record up at a garage sale here in Minneapolis. A couple of good tunes: Pineapple All Around, Shells, Tiny Bubbles (upbeat version), More. The lady at the garage sale said to me after I bought it "Enjoy your nite cap with Larry." And I DID!

A side note: the tune SHELLS is really really ripe for a new exotica band to pick up and do a cover of. I don't run across it much, but when I do I always enjoy it. If anyone out there is in a band looking for a tune that's not as well known but is pretty interesting, check it out.

They come from a family of 10 so it is quite possible.

I'll ask Ernie when I see him in a couple weeks.

Cheers and Mahalo,

Cool thanks.
my Buddy Jim Frias was in the Chantays, and then the Nocturnes, both south Orange County surf bands, and he said he knew a few of the Revera Brothers, and said it was a huge family, I bet he is related.

thanks again,
Jeff(btd)

Just uploaded a rip of George Paoa live in Kaanapali. A sort of cheesy piano bar recording, but the version of Hasegawa General Store is now in rotation in the Hideaway forever...

See it all

Sorry... got carried away when I saw the other Hotel records.....guess this one isn't really considered a Restaurant record.

Yes it is Lukeulele!!

I consider a restaurant record any privately pressed record that was recorded inside of a restaurant, hotel, motel or nightclub. On-location recordings are the best but there are lots of studio recordings out there as well.

Thanks for posting!

Cheers and Mahalo,
Jeff

Hi,
That's my father, George Hines, on the album.
He had the band at the Hotel Lexington for a while in the mid-fifties.
He also had the band at the original Roney Plaza in Miami Beach when they had a Polynesian show and dinner outside in the gardens.
They even built a stage with a large volcano that covered it.
They would open the show with one of the knife dancers blowing a conch shell at the top of the volcano. By the way, Kui Lee (I'll Remember You) was one of the knife dancers.
He later had the show at the Yankee Clipper in Ft. Lauderdale for several years (when it was still MAI KAI) and recorded an album.(my two brothers and I sang harmonies on several of the tracks)
He and I(I got a small portion of his talent) were the first haoles to play there.
We did the show and also played in the Molokai bar.

That album cover looks like it's in excellent condition!!!
How's the vinyl???



To follow up on Kui Lee...

He was at the Mai-Kai early on. He built a little hut on the property and made the reed hats and stuff that he gave to guests for tips. He was a very personable man and multi-talented as we now know. Fireknife dancer, carver, singer and song writer. In his wikipedia bio it says he was at the Hawaiian Room, and maybe that was a standing gig or with Nibble's dad. Regardless, he left the Mai-Kai gig and went on to great fame in Hawaii writing songs for Don Ho.
