Thanks so much to Cheekytiki and all you followers/artists for his wonderfull weekend!
Bo Axelzon and his orchestra plays first rate classic exotica that you rarely have the chance to hear here in Europe outside Sweden as they are the only exotica orchestra down here. (please correct me if I`m wrong) In fact for me it was the first time to hear one of my absolute favorite music style live in the perfect enviroment! Unbelivable stunning!
The Surf band Bikini Beach was everthing other than just another surf band. How many surf Bands manage to get the crowd DANCING from the start to the end? They didn`t play there own compositions BUT they did play a lot tunes that you never did hear before done in a surf style that keeps you dance and smile (new order blue monday, pulp etc. ..and YES they does fit perfect in a surf style!)
Rounded up by great polynesian dancers with live music and the fun King Kukulele, fantastic food, the charming Dolly Mixtura on the deks, fun hangaround at the tiki/art exebition and market with intersting work to discover, the great Trailer Happiness..
.. and the chance to meet you all in real live!
too bad that I did miss the opening and the Mahiki as my plane was late

virani & tikiracer, thanks for the pics and vids! (missed the street scene w. kk) Can`t wait for more! (Didn`t had a camera)

Trader Jim, your pockettiki mag did save me of boredom traveling home!

Hope to see you all soon!

and... thanks a lot for all the great feeback! My pleasure!

I'm still dead beat (and a deadbeat!) from the weekend but here are a few pics until I get time to post some later on.


FRIDAY NIGHT - A good turn out for the Art Show at the Truman Brewery.


FRIDAY NIGHT @ MAHIKI- A couple of the BRITIKI boys playing with their coconuts! Of course I had my equipment firmly in my hand, so I couldn't join in! Photographic equipment...Oh, c'mon people!!


SATURDAY @ The Marketplace, Brick Lane - King Kukulele shows the 'Beats of Polynesia' dancing beauty a few new moves!


SATURDAY NIGHT @ TRADER VIC's - Sian & Liz get down and flirty with a 'Hunk of Polynesia'! GO GIRLS!!!


SATURDAY @ The Marketplace, Brick Lane - Great sounds from DJ Dolly Mixturita & DJ Lemonsqueezer!

I'll try to post some more later...Obviously I'll be covering the LONDON LUAU in the next POCKETIKI out end of JULY! Also doing a piece in the UK 'Pinstriping Magazine'. Until then...

MAHALO to everyone who made this year's LUAU so much FUN! - Trader Jim (Make mine a Mai-Tai!).

Hey! Virani...you stealing my thunder there French boy!?? I bet you didn't tell 'em it was my idea to take the 'King' down to the 'Duke of Uke' for a photo for POCKETIKI! I wondered what that clicking over my left shoulder was? Still, I expect your photos are better than mine! I'll have to get an Eiffel of your blog...geddit? Eiffel...Eyeful...Eye...Aw forget it!!!
