Hank Snow did a different song called 'Hula Rock' too. The Hula Girls do both 'Hula Rock' songs when we play a three set show. I'm constantly digging for those kinds of songs to add to our set. I love that 1956 Honolulu Rock-a-roll-a song!

Of course in more modern times, Junior Brown has taken a note from those songs and crafted his own country/ hawaiian hybrids such as "Hillbilly Hula Gal" and "Coconut Island".

Junior was a big influence in helping my band to find our sound. He has our album too!

I think you put it best in the Tiki Mag article about us, John-O. These country/ Hawaiian combinations as well as our own 'hulabilly' music make up *small* islands in the archipeligo of what constitues 'tiki music'. Fun stuff. And this is period stuff too... so while it probably wasn't ever played in a tiki bar, there ARE straight hawaiian/ tiki ties to hillbilly and rockabilly.
