Hello we are opening a new tiki bar in PA and we are looking for the best music to play at the bar. I did some searching and found a few I already got.

1 - Martin Denny
2 - The Shadows - Kon tiki
3 - Polynesian Percussion
4 - Hui Ohana - The Best of Hui Ohana (Sweet Hawaiian Music)
5 - Hapa - Namahana
6 - Buffet & Marley


Can you all give us suggestions on music that will melt all yoru cares away while you waste away at our riverside tiki lounge.

Thanks

Ryan C.

Where is your Bar?

Some Music Suggestions

Don Tiki Adulterated - The Remix Project, Skinny Dip with Don Tiki, The Forbidden Sounds of Don Tiki.

WAI TIKI is great too.

In my opinion, get rid of the Buffet and the Marley.

Go vintage. You will have no competition. Get Arthur Lyman, Martin Denny, Les Baxter and Esquivel. If you want to mellow out, get Antonio Carlos Jobim and Sergio mendes.

Go vintage tropical. Very few "tiki" bars in restaraunts are playing this type of stuff in the background. Most go the Jimmy Buffet route, confusing a vaguely generic tropical feel for real Tiki.

Definately get the 2 Arthur Lyman greatest hits (Best of and More Best of, even the "Hawaiian Sunset" CD and stock up on as many of the ultra lounge Cd's as you can find. You also HAVE TO HAVE Robert Drasnin's "Voodoo" and "VoodooII" (when it comes out next month).

Yea, I guess you're right Tiki Kollektor.
I was just hopeful that there was maybe a Tiki bar remotely close to the DC area.
We need something as cool as Ottos down here!!

Get both Tipsy Lps/Cds -- awesome records that sound modern and timeless simultaneously. Very cool, very tropical and tiki-esque.
