Hats off to Jim and the whole Tikiaki Orchestra. These guys kicked it at the Hukilau. Jim also gets an A+ for marketing and packaging on the CD. A drink umbrella in the spine and a "place mai tai here" coaster inside. Brilliant!
Hope to see you guys next year.

Tiki Bill.

I wish I could have been at Hukilau,
I was a bit bummed to have heard all the people talking so loudly in the video that was posted. I would think that they would have wanted to hear them better.
guess not.

I will be at the upcoming So. Cal. shows to help make up for it.

and Yeah Bill, where is the Tiki Bill Cd?

Jeff(bigtikidude)

Jeff,
The sound of Tikiyaki Orchestra on Friday night at Hukilau was so amazing... and the fact that they were playing at a huge outdoor freaking pool party made it even better... The video does not do the performance justice... It was truly one of the many magical moments of Hukilau this year!

Their Saturday performance at The Mai Kai was equally as good but in more intimate quieter surroundings... They had 2 less orchestra members for that show though since the performance space was pretty much a 10 foot by 10 foot square in the center of a room...
Oh I did get to sit in with them to play Detroit Rock City during their soundcheck at the Mai Kai... Freaking Hilarious!!!

As for the Tiki Bill cd... I have a two song demo that Bill passed my way at Hukilau, and I can't wait to hear more...

Cheers!
Brian
The Intoxicators!

Goob....

Check my location in my profile on here....

You Rule Bro....So, when are the Intoxicators doing Detroit Rock City ?


BTD....Don't know if you've been fortunate enough to hear the Intoxicators but, being the surf geek that you are, you will have a Cow...they are amazing.

You should have been at Huki to see them, but, you already know that

Too funny... Exotica Rock City...

Don't know when we're gonna work up Detroit Rock City... Hopefully soon... all of our gear is piled up in our rehersal studio at the moment... haven't touched it since Hukilau...

Hey, a re-work of the Kiss tune Beth would make a killer exotica number come to think of it...
Maybe we need to put a cheesy "tribute" album together... Ha!

Hell... I'll buy just about any cheesy tribute album... My all time low was when I purchased "Strummin' With The Devil - A Bluegrass Tribute to Van Halen (featuring David Lee Roth)"

Oh well... I decree nothing but KISS on 8-Track at work tomorrow... and the Tikiyaki Orchestra 8-Track too... once my player breaks a splice amd eats through about half of the Destroyer album... remember those days....

Cheers!

We actually have a cheezy lounge version of "Close to You" by the Carpenters in the works...It's really funny.

Brian, I didn't think you were old enough to have listened to KISS on 8 track !

I always had LP's and cassettes...never 8 tracks.

KISS rules.

Yeah man, Tikiyaki Orchestra blew me away. I'm forever a fan now.
And yes, that was me who posted the vid of them in the "events" section. It was a spur of the moment thing. I was taking pics with a point and shoot, with video options...pretty darn good for a point and shoot camera...but HELL NO, not very professional. Enjoy it for what it's worth. Nick was doing a real HD video, soon to be seen on DVD...can't wait Nick!
Jim your stuff is awesome, I was hoping to meet you, but too much going on, too many drinks, too many people...so, next time! If ya ever need a drummer, or guitarist, or bassist let me know!!! ha.

Ahhhh...that was YOU in the gift shop. Yea, I SHOULD have bought the plate, but I was hemoraging money at that place. Best time I had in a long time tho'. The Mai Kai rules !

Thanx for the vid surfin tiki. Maybe you can jump in on a song next time. I thought the video sounded great actually....from a PHONE ? Damn ! Technology,man...crazy.

I'd love to get a classic old Gretsch, but I'd probably have to sell one of my american Strats to afford it...CANT do THAT! What model and year is yours? I was about to pickup one of those new Chinese ones (G5120) with the Bigsby on it, but then I'll just be wishing I got an American. Also needing a Jazzmaster! Hmmmm jazzmaster next, or Gretsch. Here's a video I just threw together, recorded on my mac. I'm not even done doing the final tracks, but I got so excited, I went ahead and did the video!... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6l_bUFQ56eA
Tell me how much you love your Gretsch, and how much I need to get one!!!!!
Thanks for chattin!

Hee Hee....It's a Korean Made Electromatic I bought this year...retail price $599. I refuse to spend more than $1000 on a guitar. The guitar player from the Intoxicators tried it and wants to get one now.

Cool video. Can I make a request ? More reverb on the drums !
