While this album hasn't been released yet and is not intended for my virgin ears, I happen to be married to a VIP who received an advance copy. This album will knock you out, I kid you not, arguably the best and most consistent neo-exotica album you've heard.

I had the pleasure of meeting Randy Wong a few weeks back at an exclusive Boston watering hole.

Superb album guys!

Thanks Drew for the kind words about our new album! It was my pleasure to meet you and Laura and introduce you to Drink.

The CD is titled Adventures in Paradise, and it is the debut effort of our new WAITIKI project, The WAITIKI 7. The WAITIKI 7 is the same group that performed at last summer's Festival Wassermusik (Berlin, Germany), and for the Retro Cocktail Hour's 500th Broadcast Anniversary Party (Lawrence, KS).

Our release date is August 18, 2009, which coincides with (and commemorates) the 50th Anniversary of Hawaii's Statehood. The album will be for sale online at our websites (
WAITIKI.com and WAITIKI7.com), iTunes, CDBaby, and at retail stores in Hawaii and the west coast.

For more information about The WAITIKI 7 and the new album, please visit:

We will be playing some of the tunes from the album at Ohana. But just to be clear: it is our quartet that will be playing, not The WAITIKI 7. (In other words, BYOBC... Bring Your Own Bird Calls)

Jeff, Koop, & Drew, thanks for the sweet testimonials!!

Yes, it feels like a long time until August 18 finally hits, and the world can hear our new album. But fear not: We've put up a number of promo videos with player insights into our music, the state of exotica as it is today, and yes, some sneak-peek listening of the new tracks.

Check them out online, at The WAITIKI 7's website:
http://waitiki7.com/press/video/

More videos will be added soon too!

-Randy & The WAITIKI 7
