"$110.00 2X's"



Are you trying to say you've been twice, and both times got the $110 ticket and was happy???

At this point I/we aren't sure if we want to attend ALL the symposiums (as they haven't all been posted yet obviously), or just want to pick a couple, or what. I'm afraid if I just get the $40 (or 110) ticket then I will miss out on some cool stuff, but if I splurge on the $150 and then don't end up attending it all I will feel guilty.

Thank you, from a Tiki Oasis virgin



This is a somewhat difficult and personal decision. I highly recommend the mug, so the $110 ticket is a no-brainer. the mug is the best keepsake from the event and it is collectable and it is cool. Did you see the pix on tikiblog.com?

As for the symposiums, that is true, you may not want to go to all of them. BUT the VIP pass entitles you to fast track line that allows you to show up at the last minute, get in a short line, and still get a good seat!!

so what is THAT worth to you?



Thank you Otto. I'm surprised nobody else has chimed in on this! That mug is SUPER cute, so at the very least I will prob go for the $110 ticket, but we'll see!

We are booked for our 3rd Tiki Oasis! Staying Sunday so we can enjoy all that San Diego has to offer, though we might be dragging after all the room crawls from the weekend. Anyone booked dinner reservations at Bali Hai for Thursday night yet? Last year we booked 1.5 hours before the event started so we had plenty of time for dinner and to grab a good seat at the event downstairs.

Thanks Otto! Looking forward to the announcement of the symposiums, times, and prices.

Aloha all!

TikiWineBear - you're the first person who has made mention of the Bali Hai event. I've never been to the TO before, but my sis and I are doing it up right! We have resies at BH but we're not sure what's going on there. Is there a private room with some activity happening? Please elaborate if possible. Thanks! Can't wait!

beadtiki,
Check out this alternate posting about the event at the Bali Hai during Tiki Oasis. I think you will get some information here.

See you there!

By the way, you can contact the Bali Hai at 619.222.1181

(edit - added Bali Hai phone number)

This information will be announced shortly on the Tiki Oasis site but I thought I would give everyone a heads up.............

Jeff Chenault presents
Sounds for Sophisticated Savages

Exotica researcher Jeff Chenault has become a well-known figure in the Exotica world. His extensive research comes from a lifetime love affair with music and his consummate passion for unusual sounds. For the past two years he has presented his Exotica seminars to enthusiastic crowds at the Hukilau event in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. His ultimate goal is to share, educate and enlighten people with this extraordinary and fascinating form of music.

This year Jeff will present an ever-expanding version of his music seminar. The show will include an introductory overview of Exotica pioneers Martin Denny, Les Baxter and Arthur Lyman, and also chronicle more obscure artists such as Eden Ahbez and Jimmy Namaro. As an added bonus Jeff will highlight the career of Hollywood film composer Robert Drasnin. Bob’s quintessential first album Voodoo is considered by many to be a masterpiece of the genre. Bob will also be making a special guest appearance.

Join us for an entertaining and educational journey into the world of Exotica.


Cheers and Mahalo,
Jeff

Any chance of hearing more Exotica and classic Hawaiian steel this year around the pool? Or in keeping with the event theme, lots of Harry Belafonte Calypso mixed to perfection?

And way off topic here - is there any reason to play modern club dance music when nobody's even remotely interested in modern club dancing?

And any possibility of getting an active microphone hooked up to the sound system so DJs can announce when Otto's group events are about to happen? Or is that too corny old-school?

I'd be ALL OVER Belafonte Calypso music....

It totally fits the Carribean Voodoo vibe.

Its a throwback sound... it ran parrallel with the 50's-60's timeline of Exotica (to some degree)

Its fun music... its festive sounding...

I was wondering if the ever-helpful Tiki Centralites could give me some advice. I've been invited to join the artists at the show this year but have zero experience in anything like this, which leaves me with several important questions:

If I can't bring my paintings on the flight, can I safely send my work to the hotel and have it held there?

Is there a time I need to arrive by to start setting up, or someone I need to contact when I get there?

Is the artist's area outdoors, under cover, or out in the sun?

What part of the day do the artists hawk their wares?

What kind of area do the artists have to set up in, a couple of folding tables? Are tables provided? I assume that I'll have to find some way to fly out display gear to put my paintings on.

My wife and I have nearly 2,000 miles to travel and would appreciate any help anyone could give.

Im assuming that you are referring to the vending area at Oasis. Its sunny.. pretty much all of the vendor space gets LOTS of sun during the day.

There are a few vendor spots that are right next to the building that have a little shade in the morning but the sun will pour down on you later.

There is also an indoor vending area that is completely out of the sun AND is air conditioned.. Last year at Oasis we had a serious heat spell and the temperature outside in the vending area was probably over 90 degrees....


If you can rent a canopy.. I would do that. If you can get inside... that might be an easier option for you.
