Does anyone know if they've already announced next year's dates (& location) for Tiki Oasis 11?

Actually, I did do that this week upon return from the Oasis (subscribe to newsletter)! I will eagerly await the first receipt and hope the dates are in it! I've got a big work event that I host in Vegas each August that sometimes conflicts with Oasis dates, so am anxious to hear when they are since our dates are already set for that month.
So no one's heard what the 2011 dates are yet?

In the Oasis program it said August 18-21. I was kinda hoping it would be a week earlier!

Thank you! Glad it's not the week before, it's still tight with my other work schedule but COULD be possible. Love your lamps! Are they for sale somewhere online, or just through direct request to you?

It should be at the same Bat place and the same Bat time unless Otto lets us know otherwise. (Unless, of course, the event outgrows this location too.)

According to the poster in the lobby of the Crowne Plaza on Sunday, next year's Oasis theme is "South of the Border".

No, seriously.

as stated in the program
Next year's dates are Aug 18 - 21 (I was hoping it would be a week earlier but the third weekend of Aug is the only date that the hotel can guarantee giving us all the meeting room spaces)

"South of the Border" is the theme. Please note: this is the title of a Herb Alpert record, not a reference to Taco Bell. But I intend it to encompass all the Latin influences on Exotica music with a heavy nod to the 1960s/70s Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass craze (remember, Julius Wechter, Martin Denny's vibist for most of Denny's career, became the leader of the Baja Marimba Band. They were part of the TJB craze and were stars in their own right on Herb's A&M records)

Crowne Plaza San Diego, formerly known as the Hanalei Hotel, will be the site due to its historical significance and its great staff and in the round pool area. Did everyone get the postcard reprint we did this year!?!

Remember Lucas Vigor was one of the first people here to post on this Mid-century cross-over.

He saw it coming.

Also Marty Lush was there first in the execution. Latin music in the Tiki bar !! It was a fantastic evening.

Any chance of getting the Black Sombrero Brass?

http://www.blacksombrerobrass.com/

From their website:

The Black Sombrero Brass affectionately and faithfully recreates those old Tijuana Brass sounds. Our repertoire includes almost everything the Tijuana Brass recorded. We also have a large collection of other latin-influenced music from that era. The moods we create range from the exciting sounds of brass to the quiet sophistication of guitar, marimba and vibes.

The result is a fun, nostalgic, and sophisticated sound for your special event. It is a sound that is truly accessible to all ages of people. And we will not drown you out with volume, so your guests can enjoy the music, maybe dance a little, and even have a conversation without shouting.

"My kids say a new generation will discover this, but I don’t know. I couldn’t predict that I was going to make a hit record [40 years ago], so I can’t say if they will or they won’t. I will say it’s upbeat and positive music. There’s so much dark music out there now.”


—Herb Alpert, Washington Post, Apr 6, 2005

Thank you Otto, and all, for responding to my Q on the 2011 dates!
Neither myself or my man, Rapanui Rich, saw the postcard you refer to, and I even looked back to the program last night and still couldn't find the dates for 2011 anywhere. So really appreciate your responses!
I'm actually hosting an event in Vegas for my work next year (it's also every August), that ends on the day it begins out here, and I don't usually fly back right away but a day & half later.
Going to be interesting if I attempt to fly out the same night our show is over and then next day try to make it over to Tiki Oasis 11! At least it's in my backyard I guess, can't complain about that! (Richard & I live in Pacific Beach, 5 minutes from Crowne Plaza.) And I agree the staff there is terrific and the location is really perfect.
Otto: thanks for all you & your wife do to put this event together; I know how much effort it takes! It was our first time although we've been wanting to come for the past couple of years (unable due to conflicts with my work's August schedule).

Is Julius the guy who is often taking a piss on the band's album covers? See the guy in the back with the sombrero.
