Thanks, Lucas.
Remember when we played Tiki Oasis #2 or #3 as the Smokin' Menenhunes? I was even trying to lead that band into the hulabilly stuff way back then too! But the SM's are WAY better as the traditional hapa haole thing that you guys have going now.

I really appreciate Otto's validation of what I have created (or THOUGHT I created anyway). I hadn't yet heard any of those songs that John-O posted. Junior Brown was the only guy that even got close to what I had in mind with "Hillbilly Hula Gal" and "Coconut Isle". Oh, and Blazing Haley had one song that was super influential to me as well.

We DO cover that Bill Haley song, John-O! It is such a great one for our genre! Bill Haley had some AMAZING songs once you get past all of his cliche hits!

Anyway, I CAN'T wait to see what Otto puts together for next year's Oasis!!
