I took my parents to the Latitude 20 in Torrance to celebrate their wedding anniversary. Ernie had a colleague who was quite heavy-set who performed a pantomime of what could have been Humpty Dumpty. He wore no shirt and a huge hat that sat on his shoulders. Painted eyes on his chest and lips about his belly button. By flexing his stomach, he made it look like he was whistling to the theme from the Bridge over River Kwai. My father laughed so hard that he ended up on the floor!

Ernie still has his pal perform at shows. This was last years Tiki Oasis. Calls him 'The Thing' and he still gets a bit of a giggle...

Oh, and welcome to TC

I was just in Tucson a couple of weeks ago, and I met Ernie. What an amazing dude!! He showed me around his desert oasis as he was preparing for his annual Luau. I picked up an awesome drum he made out of a palm stump. It has an amazing sound to it. He also gave me a tiki that he carved. He is truly an awesome guy!! I'm so glad I got to meet him while I was there.
He has a real zest for life, and loves to have fun. He's in his 80's and going strong!!
I look forward to seeing him again in Long Beach for The Tiki Beach Festival.

Everyone should check out Digitiki's podcast with the Jeff Chenault interview with Ernie Menehune. It inspired me to perform "Back In Aloha Land" at OHANA this year. What an incredible singer/performer!
