I just got this from the tiki tones mailer:

Quote:
The TIKI TONES will be playing live at Proof in downtown Santa Ana Monday February 5th at 10:00 PM. Come on down and say hello. There will also be an art show by an amazing unannounced artist.

Proof

BBCode Quote End -->

They don't play that often, so get your lounge on early and get psyched for their performance at tiki oasis!

I'm there,
Been a fan of the tiki tones since 1996.
used to see them at the Doll Hut all the time,
even when Ape made a ealy So. Cal. Bar tour.
they palyed together at the Doll Hut.
Shag was still in the band at the time,
and Al-ii was fronting the congo line around the place.

good times,
Jeff(bigtikidude)

Yes I was there for that, and I was just a surf fan and barely knew anything about tiki at the time, and wondered who all the weird people in Hawiian shirts were?
Now I am one of them,

chris, what's up? I haven't seen them in several years, but the last couple of shows I saw were without shag. I bet he's got a pretty hectic schedule with his paintings and art openings and family and such. So, no I do not believe that he is still a part of the band or would be playing this show. Great music none the less though!!!!

It hasn't been updated in a while, but their website may have more info:
http://www.tikitones.com/

PS - does anyone know who carved the tiki pendants they had for sale?

Hey Polynesiac,
1st I sent ya a PM.
2nd, no Shag is not in the band anymore
his last 3 shows with them were
The Vegas Grind( dont know the year)
Then Doll hut week later,
Then Otto and Baby Does wedding.
This is all hear-say, but I assume its correct.
3rd. You gotta be kidding right? Crazy Al was the carver of the tiki tones pendants. I got the Shag(lono) one, and was gonna get the other 3 soon after. But they all sold out, and no longer available

Shag was also in the Huntington Cads, where they played a mix of Shadows styled Instros, with Exotic flavors mixed in.
Do many TC people know about Them?
I saw them 2 times, and was just blown away.
One of my Favorite cd's is "Go Exotic"

Here's a pic from the Tiki Tones show at Las Vegas Grind 2000.



If anyone's interested these pages have more pics from the
2000 Grind, and the 1999 Las Vegas Grind. I miss the days of the Grind, the Rockaround, and the Dionysus Demolition Derbys! Never did see the Huntington Cads neither no how. Shag's cover on their Go Exotic LP is classic - just a simple illo and very "Cartoon Modern".
