If it gets any hotter, I just might have to kill myself.

Temperature: Anaheim 102 degrees right now.

This is insane.

Hey Menehunes...Great time yesterday at Busters...You guys sounded great. The Tropical ambiance of Busters (So, what will it take to get management to install a few Tikis in there ?), the Ocean, right outside the windows, the great food, and great music by you guys made for a most enjoyable late Sunday afternoon hang.

This should be a weekly thing...I had a great time.

I would love to see tiki or surf bands there on a regular basis.
even if it was once a month.

As you sit on your bar stool The Smokin Menehunes teleport you to the sands of Waikiki and allow you to transcend beyond all the doom and gloom being transmitted on the news from the tv hanging from the wall at Busters. I would love to see that place used on a more regular basis for Tikiyaki, Menehunes, Martini Kings etc... It has lots of space, right on the water, Bamboo Ben made the bar, and the place has a good layback Hawaiian style vibe. It was one of my best kept secrets but if your reading this then your my kind of guy/gal so the cats out of the bag. Mahalo to the Menehunes for a great show!

I agree on all counts...I'd love a regular gig there....once or twice a month. The Ocean view through the picture windows is really serene, and the bamboo interior (I didn't know Ben did it, that's why it looks so nice, of course) and the EXCELLENT food all adds up to a good time.

As someone who doesn't drink at all.....I know...blashphemy, right ?.....I tasted the Lapu Lapu that Marie made, and it was damn tasty ! I'd consider having one of those on occasion, it was that good.

The stage is a nice size, which is important for our giant band, and the sound system sounded good.

I will re-iterate, between the ocean view and the food....I'm sold ! Add the right tropical music...perfect.

Now, we just need to convince them that they need to do a little shopping trip to Oceanic Arts and get some TIKI in there

For me, a lot of the time I rate places I want to play at by how well I am treated. I have done gigs were the management or even proprietor make you feel like they are doing you this huge favor in letting you play at thier crummy joint. Others, make you feel valued and act more like friends when it comes to all the business arrangements. JonPaul and Marie fall into that latter category. Though they are all business and highly professional when it comes to running a bar, they are also extremely warm and friendly people! Excuse me for saying this, but there are not a lot of people running things these days that are like them. I actually want to play for them. I want to haul my lazy, tired-from-work carcass out and play for them. Probably because they are musicans themselves, and know the score, but also because they are real, genuine people without that "cooler then you" attitude I have seen.
That's what makes a place like Buster's a hidden secret. Though other places may have more tikis and whatnot, they lack that personal touch you get when dealing with decent and kind people like the people at Busters.
