Aloha and BIG mahalo to all who came out to the Festival!! It was PACKED! Couldn't have asked for better weather after all the rainstormin' we'd been having, a total bonus, especially for the vendors. Thanks to Doug and Swampfire Lounge for being a part of it!
I really appreciate all who take the time to email me or give me their feedback in person - that's what will continue to help make this event the best it can be. In the end, all I truly hope for is that everybody left feeling that they had a good time and got some real value for their money.
Congrats to Kari Hendler of Tiki Magazine who was the 2nd Prize winner in the "Spirit of Aloha" Benefit Drawing and won a Big Baby Taylor guitar, a private catered luau and a one year subscription to Acoustic Guitar magazine!!
Special thanks to Jeff (BTD) for coming out and for your support of the event!

Happy Chi Stacy, I like my mom too much to trade, but you she is available for party rentals.
I can't believe I won such a cool prize! And I even play the guitar, so... wow! Maybe this will magically make me a better musician. Thanks so much, Mitch! And thanks to my pal, Rebecca (yes, Purple Orchid Rebecca) for tellng me that she was positive she heard my name called during the raffle drawing.
Yes, Big Tiki Dude, we need to pump this concert up even more for next year, since it's such a fun event. Outstanding musicians, a night-before party at Trader Vics.. AND there's great Hawaiiana shopping for everyone! Added bonus: The Redondo Beach Performing Arts Center is close to Tony's on the Pier AND The Purple Orchid for your post-concert merrymaking.
Mitch is going to be producing several other events this year, including the Aloha Fest to be held this October in Redondo Beach! I have NO DOUBT that some of you Tiki artists might like to sell your unique wares at that event. It's AFTER The Hukilau and AFTER Tiki Oasis. What a great way to continue to feel some aloha spirit into the fall season!
