GROG played tuba, baritone and valve trombone in highschool. Toured Europe with a concert band when GROG was sixteen. Our first concert was in Carnegie Hall before we flew to Euope to start the month-long tour. GROG still have tuba mouthpiece, but haven't played a note since college, so probably wouldn't be any good in a band. Now GROG only play the radio, and GROG can barely get a good tune out of that.

attempt to play guitar. not much tiki style, but i do own a custom made Wosrite, based on a Mosrite Ventures model.

broke up the band I played in for 10 years to traverse on a shoe-string around South America (and carve Argentinian tikis)... also sold my flamed '71 Valiant coupe, collectible Harlem Globetrotters pinball, and a few guitars... God was I crazy???

anyway here's the link to my old band, Wiseacre
myspace - mix of upbeat ska, raucous rock n roll etc. GROG may like since theres HORNS!

there might be pics of us tiki style in my front yard with some of my tikis and bar - promo for a tiki gig I put on for our last CD launch. I put a thread on TC about it here

Virani can you teach me Theremin when I come over to your side of the world?? Would love to learn!!

Cheers.

I don't play a note, but my kid is 15 and is becoming a guitar nut. He started with violin, then piano, then when his fingers were big enough to press frets, he grabbed a guitar and will not let go.

He started on a Fender Sonoran acoustic, then bought this from a friend for 75 clams;



It's a Fender Strat, but we hot-rodded it with DiMarzio pickups, a nicer pickguard and oyster/jewel/chrome knobs. We call it the King Penguin.

And last night he just bought this with his own cash:



Its a spankin' new Gibson SG with the cherrywood 'worn finish'. Its so serious its kind of scary taking it out of the case. Looks like the Devil, sounds like an Angel. Don't have a name for it yet.

Sushiman, when you visiting da good old US of A????

Oui, DJ - toi!

Do a search on TC for the Oasis threads, it's a huge retro-tiki party held in San Diego. Lots of pictures have been posted of last year's event. He needs DJs. He always needs DJs. (Otto is a big vinyl collector.)

I think they're from a small town called Haginoh. (Haganoh?)
