Three things on my Tiki "To Do Before I Die" List:

1. Make a pilgrimage to the Mai Kai.
2. Visit Kirby's Rumpus Room (wherever that is).
3. See the Smokin' Menehunes.

I kept waiting for the SMs to play north of Long Beach but it looked like that wasn't gonna happen. I also missed Friday's show. I did however get to see them at Mariepalooza !!

I really had high expectations and you know what, I wasn't disappointed. This wasn't an updated for the 21st-century Tiki Revival hybrid fusion band, it was old-school "good enough for 1960, good enough for 2010" classic Hapa Haole Hawaiian soul music. I wanted it purist and that's what they delivered. Two thumbs up !!

Don's of course is a great venue and what you would imagine to be the perfect place to experience the band. The downside was that the happy revelry (and bad acoustics) of the Dagger Bar at times overshadowed the music. I'd really like to see the SMs play at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel's outdoor patio with only the sounds of crashing Waikiki waves and clinking cocktail glasses to be heard. That would be perfection. I will however take the Catalina Fish Kitchen as a 2nd choice. Lucas, when is the next show? Put me on the guest list.

Okay, now does anyone here know how I find the Rumpus Room?

Well, Pat (Singer/uke) has played there, and many other classic Hawaiian places, hence the authenticity.

Busters Beach House in Long Beach on one of the Sunday 4-7 pm shows is an even better place.
Before the accident, Marie would bartend on sundays.

What you get :
3 or 4 sets of Menehunes
A full wall of glass looking out into the Long Beach Canal/marina - boats passing by etc
A great Sunset
Great classic cocktails by Marie (when she's better, hopefully)
Awesome food
FREE admission
No Bill tapia at those tho'.
Still,A perfect way to spend a Sunday. I really wish more TC'ers would go to those gigs.

Hey I had their June 6th gig on my calendar (saw it on Facebook) but they canceled it due to some other "more important" event.

Flakey musicians !!

Guys, I really want to thank you for your comments. It made my day!


As far as Busters, we do like playing there, but this time it was my fault we are cancelling the 6-6-10 show. It's not the same without Marie, anyway!

But, we will do it again, and hopefully, hopefully, Jim will sit in again!!!!!

I got to the Mariepalooza late. Took almost three hours to get over the boarder from Mexico, longer since I didn't have my passport with me.
The boarder guard didn't think i was funny when I said "Passport? I don't need no stinking passport!" Those guys have no sense of humor.

Missed most of the bands by the time I arrived at dark but I did get some video of the Tikiyaki Orchestra at the end.
What a great event. Woo Hoo and Soccer, thank you and all the event staff. You two really do need to be event planners. What a night.
