Hi All,

I know that this is not a Tiki event, but there have been many tiki events lately that has been a mix of tiki and surf music, (Tiki Oasis, Tiki Calient, and the MariePalooza benefit) This is a Huge Labor of Love for me, and it's a lot of work and time putting together this weekend of shows.
Basically its the surf equivalent of Tiki Oasis, and I have bands coming from around the world. So I hope that some of you tiki people will try to make it. Thanks for reading this.
The Main event is not at a tiki bar,
but there will be 3 shows that weekend at Don the Beachcomber,
Fri night, august 6th(4 bands)
Sat night, august 7th(glasgow tiki shakers)
Sun evening, Surf Jam with Matt Quilters Wave Machine(6 to 9 pm)

- Your host Jeff "Big Tiki Dude" Hanson

A few notes about each band:

The Space Cossacks– Originally from Washington D.C., The Space Cossacks are widely recognized as one of the most popular and influential bands of the 1990's great surf revival, if not all time. We are honored that The Space Cossacks, with their original line-up intact, will appear at the SG101 Convention as part of their 10th anniversary reunion tour.

Frankie and the Pool Boys- This Bay Area group was never supposed to perform live, but agreed to come together for the SG101 Convention. Featuring Ferenc Dobronyi from Pollo Del Mar with Danny and Tony from The TomorrowMen, Karen of Meshugga Beach party, and Naotaka Seki from Japan's Surf Coasters on drums with several special guests.

The Wadadli Riders- The Surf Music Kings of the Caribbean! Lorenzo Valdambrini, the leader of the band is also the founder of the hugely successful Surfer Joe Festival in Italy. This will be the Wadali Riders second tour of California.
(Along with the Space Rangers from Germany, we are pleased to have The Wadadli Riders as our first international bands at the SG101 convention.)

The Insect Surfers- Planet Earth's longest running modern surf bands has been preforming since the Summer of 1979. They have released 3 CDs, and a best-of album, with appearances on about 30(!) compilations. The Insect Surfers strive to bring you the best in modern surfadelic sounds.

The Space Rangers- From Ulm, Germany, The Space Rangers' stomping beats and bass lines are the solid reef on which the delayed guitar riffs break, topped with whitecaps of organ harmonies. If Godzilla had a favorite band, it would be the Space Rangers.

The Atomic Mosquitos- From Washington D.C., The Atomic Mosquitos are led by the twin reverb guitars of Joe Marencic and Paul Carson with Stephen Blickenstaff adding theremin touches and driven along by Sean Rush on bass and Craig Stang's drums. They deliver a full-on, uptempo surf assault. They have released three CDs.

The Surfside IV- With fans numbering in the dozens, these surf rockers from Sonora, Arizona have managed to thrill themselves and audiences alike, despite their willingness to don a fez. Never afraid to make a true spectacle and always providing an ample target area for empty beer cans, a Surfside IV show is a veritable reverb-soaked cavalcade of high-speed guitar, bass and drum acrobatics.

The Men of Mystery- A tribute to England's legendary Shadows, this group features members of The Detonators, joined by Marty Tippens (The Planktones, The Trespassers), and Abdel Khineche (a long time Shadows devotee.)

The Legends of Surf Jam - We have asked members several First Wave groups to join a fantastic, all-star backing band, to perform the music we cherish. This a very rare opportunity for you to see the songs performed by the people that first recorded and wrote them.

Starting the day's music will be the very popular SG101 Members Jam.
I am thinking of trying something different to organize it this year.
Look for a separate thread on that later.

Please plan on coming 4PM, Thursday, August 5th to a BBQ at my place, followed by a show in nearby Anaheim.
Monday, August 9th will be a day of sight seeing and field trips.

Thanks for all your enthusiasm and support over the years.
Jeff(bigtikidude)

Jeff "Big Tiki Dude" Hanson:

Right on!!! Surf is just as much tiki (to me) as a mai tai filled tiki mug! You have a great line-up. It would be great if Tiki Tim Moritz (The Reverburritos) and I could sneak out to SoCal for this event. It would also be great to meet more folk within surf music community. We are heading to Hukilau, so we are going to go crazy with the cabbage! Not sure we will have climbed out of post Hukilau debt by Augusts, but we will try!

So one of the members of the surf forum donated a guitar for me to raffle off at the Big event.
and the proceeds will go to all of the bands playing.

and I was really Happy, and surprised to see that Sven included this in his recent "Sound of Tiki" cd.


I admit that surf and tiki don't cross over even 50/50,
but there are elements of surf that are Exotic, and Hawaiian influenced sometimes.

Free your mind and you ass will follow.
