Friday, June 27, 2008 8PM $5 Cover


King Kukulele presents the June destination of the Floating Luau, at the Tonga Hut. King Kukulele and the Friki Tikis will keep things lively as they play original Hapa Hole tunes and the standards. King is just back from performing in England, and bears gifts for all who come out to the show!

PLUS:

FREE Mahiki Rum tastings! Yes, the King has brought back Mahiki Rum from London. Be among the first Yankee Tiki-philes to sample Mahiki Rum, which only debuted one week ago at the Mahiki Mayfair in London. Papa Jules, creator of the Mahiki Rum, worked with Master Distiller Richard Seale, of Four Squares Distillery in Barbados, to create this Master-class rum.

PLUS:

FREE, to the first 25 Tiki-enthusiasts, a collectable 4-page booklet, featuring “How to Make Great Cocktails with Mahiki Rum”.

AND:

The Polynesian Paradise Dancers will woo the audience into a hypnotic Hula trance with their swinging hips and flowing hair! Akemi and her girls will dance once again to their signature song Polynesian Paradise.

AND:

Back by popular demand, an encore presentation of Johnny Halifax’s "Tiki Tiki Tiki". The film “Tiki Tiki Tiki” was filmed at the Kahiki. If you've heard King Kukulele’s song "Otto's Odyssey", then you've heard the line: “Halifax is filming for the BBC”. This is what Johnny Halifax was filming, and now you have the ultra rare opportunity to see "Tiki Tiki Tiki".

AND:

Ali Lexa, host of KPFK's Ukulele Spotlight, will sit in with the Friki Tikis, and fill us in about the upcoming Second Annual Southern California Ukulele Showcase.

We’ll see you at the Tonga Hut!!!

I'd really love to be there, but that's the same night as Karghzu, the virtuoso Myposian bazlouki player is giving a recital. It'll be located at 12810 1/2 Victory Blvd. in North Hollywood and starts at 8:00pm. The cover is only $4.98. Should be a fantastic musical experience that should be missed by no living person! Karghzu has never played in North Hollywood before, so this really is an amazing opportunity. Again, sorry I can't make it to the Floating Luau, it really does sound like you've got a doozy planned.

I'm looking forward to seeing you all there. I think you'll like the US debut of Mahiki Rum. It is has never been tasted anywhere outside of England and I'm interested to hear what you think of it!

Hey! Great to know about Taix restaurant! I'll try to make it over there after the Karghzu concert. Glad to know that Cheeky Girl, Jeff and two friends will be joining me for this very special performance, you'll love the sweet sounds of his Myposian bazlouki. Thanks King Kukulele for offering this thread for us to talk about our alternate plans! Wow!

Alternate plans be damned!
I was going out of town on Friday, but I just feverishly re-worked my weekend so I can attend this event! I'll be there AND be square! Woo-Hoo!

Myposian bazlouki? Is that anything like Vogon poetry?

It is my understanding, that by sheer coincidence, Douglas Adams had been seen at several of Karghzu's rotating weekly shows in Pacoima, Tarzana and Rancho Cucamonga. The sweet sweet tones of his Myposian bazlouki can still be heard at one of these quad-monthly concerts... BUT this is his FIRST TIME performing in North Hollywood! Oh, the good luck! Thank you once again, King Kukulele for getting the word out to all the music lovers.
