I thought maybe it might be a good idea to have a thread about just the bands that played at tiki oasis.....

(If not, someone please merge this thread with the "official" thread)

But here are some of my favorite moments:

Squid sitting in with the Swank Bastards...awesome, just totally awesome! The man is so loose, yet so tight at the same time. This was one hell of a room party!

The Martini Kings with their singer brought a lot of class to the stage, that's for sure! I am sure Mr Vegas, John-O, would have approved!

The elevator show with the Mai-Kai gent's bass player and guitar player. These guys were throwing down some serious jazz! Makes me happy to see such a level of high musicianship. That bass player is too awesome for words! As drunk as I was, this was actually one of my favorite things I heard over the weekend!

Jim Bacchi sitting in with Lushy (did I get that right?) on his bongos.....wow!

The band chum was really killing it during a room party...loud and wild, but they were GREAT! I did not realize the drummer is also in the Insect Surfers!

And then there was APE. Ok, I have seen them before but really was not expecting the level of tightness they showed, considering they hardly ever play. Every member of that band is excellent...but a special shot out to that crazy drummer. The man needs to be committed to a mental institution...what with that homicidal look in his eyes! God DAMN he is good! C-Al was like a lord among men, prowling the stage, singing, dancing, hacking away at his tiki. I even got a wood chip in my glass!

Well that's it for now......

I didn't get to see the Saturday night bands but the Friday night lineup was great. And I just have to say that after 50 years, Kim Tsoy still has the sauce!

Although I didn't get to catch many of the acts, everyone I managed to hear at Oasis was awesome.


Project Pimento with guest JonPaul on bass-o-phone were the perfect complement to the Keep A Breast art show. Hope you're feeling better JP!! Buy their stuff!

The Hula Girls were swinging their collective asses off in the ballroom! Gary Brandin on steel did his usual stellar job of filling in as if he'd been with the band for years. And I believe I saw Sabu Le Coconut Boy cuttin' some serious rug as well... Buy their stuff!

I caught the Ding Dong Devils in a drunken room crawl haze. (me, not them ) I had no idea what to expect and I'm still not sure what it is I did hear! I hate putting labels on bands or doing the old comparison thing so I'll leave it at this: They were the most enjoyably quirky ensemble I've heard in a long time. Buy their stuff!

Sand Devils!!! Ran and the lads was smokin'! Thanks for the cocktails! Buy their stuff!

Thee Swank Bastards... Black Sabbath, burnin' proto-punk surf and Szandora? What's not to like? Thanks for letting me sit in fellers! Buy their stuff!

APE.... FINALLY!!! I have never had the APE experience. I feel totally violated... in a very good way. Buy their stuff!

Martini Kings with Sonny Moon... Smoooooth, baby, smooth!! Congrats to Tony and Val. Buy their stuff!

Oh, and go see "NUTTY", Sonny's kooky band!!!


Did I mention you should buy all these bands' stuff?



What could be better than seeing any of the bands? Seeing Marie King up and mobile with a big old smile on her face!

Yeah! GREAT PICS Tom -

and Jim, man, no doubt Marina - grinding on the stage - kicked your set into overdrive. Fanfrickintastic.

I'm sorry to have missed the gig and Oasis this time.

Unfortunately, with all the running around this weekend, I didn't get to see that many bands aside from the Mai Kai Gents (who are always in top form). But I did want to say how honored I was to go-go dance for APE on Saturday night along with Atomikitty as my dance partner. I decided to bring out my previous Oasis award-winning costumes (made by Atomic Cocktail) for the 10th anniversary occasion: Jungle Josie (the monkey fur bikini and banana skirt, also my tribute to Josephine Baker) and Shipwrecked Sally (worn by Atomikitty). Many thanks to APE for playing such an amazing and energetic set that was loads of fun to dance to!




And here's another nice action shot taken by Sherrill Yurth of Ace Shirt:

All of the bands I saw and heard put on awesome sets. My own personal highlights:

- Any time I get 2 sets of Tikiyaki in 1 night I'm happy. Normally I have to play my Mayflower DVD for that.
- The Martini Kings played a set that got my "new to Tiki Oasis" friends hooked since they recognized some standards like Witchcraft.
- APE pretty much had me gawking at what I was experiencing on stage. I was in awe when they finished.



Like I said, every band I saw was great, these were just a few of the personal highlights. Oh and frantically trying to find someone selling the Hula Girls CD on Sunday only to run into them late afternoon at the BBQ stand where I got my CD.
