Wow! Was that a Tubax in one of the band pics? Not something I would expect to see at a tiki event. Or much anywhere else, for that matter.

Ha ha! Great eye! It is indeed a Tubax! In "Bamboo Saxotica" we pride ourselves on having unusual (exotic) instruments. That's one of my guys Tom, he also has a soprillo sax. (he owns two Grafton Plastic Altos too just waiting to be overhauled and I'm praying he lets me play one) As for exotic instruments, you should have seen Tim Mayer's Hulusi!!!!

As for that incredible weekend, I GOT TO MEET THAT PABLUS GUY!!!! (how's that for gushing)

I played a Tubax last year at a saxophone, well, thing... convention is probably not the right word. Also an Eppelsheim sub contrabass and some of the J'Elle Stainer Extreme saxes. I could feel those low vibrations all through my body. So I was pretty sure that I recognized it the Tubax. Wish I could have heard you guys. Love those BIG saxes!

Thanks for the photos, eab! I'm so glad you got one of that Surfside hotel sign.

I love that motel :


That bar too :


And the dinner (well, except maybe the food...) :


Man I loved that event, the room crawl and having to talk to plenty of friends, hearing great music, drinking amazing drinks, on a beautiful site.

Dinner was Fun! Spam AND Pork! It may not be winning any awards in the culinary world, but it was a lot of fun! And the company made it more so. And the entertainers made it even more fun!

Besides.... Mikey said next year he plans on digging an imu and doing a couple of pigs!

And the weird banana-cream-coconut-pineapple dessert thing was yummy too!

A Frenchman MUST critique the food!

Thanks for sitting in with "Bamboo Saxotica" virani, it truly was a special moment for everyone!

& it *even* GLOWED under the black light....!



(yes....you can only imagine all the pictures I have from the weekend, when I'm even taking pictures of my glowing pudding!!!)

Really, folks, it tasted better than it looks in my somewhat blurry picture - but just watch it GLOW

Thanks for the video, John! That's the only footage I've seen of my dance - and you even captured my tipping the Twins of Pleasure! Yay!

Hope to see you at another event - soon!
