What a great event !!

Surf music legends and some of the best of the Third Wave playing 8 hours of non-stop music in a historic Tiki palace.

And all for a great cause !! This was a great celebration of tribal love and community.

A big THANK YOU to BigTikiDude for organizing such a fantastic day.

Everyone had a great time and from what I understand successfully raised a lot of well needed funds for Eddie.

The room(s) were packed...



Here's BTD with Eddie who was able to attend for a short time...



I wish I could have gotten more shots of the bands but it was super crowded up near the stage. The highlight of the event was former Bel-Airs and Showmen jamming through some of their classics. That's Paul Johnson second from left, Dick Dodd (and former Mouseketeer) on drums, and DTBC regular (and former Nocturne) Jim Frias on sax. I forgot the person who was channeling Eddie but he was great (help BTD).



Here's the Eliminators with Surf music historian (and 2nd-Wave Nightrider) Jon Blair second from left.

They did a stunning Surf music version of "Bali Hi".



Tiki Central role call for the day...

left (Trevor, Tiki Kitty, "Ding Dong Devil" Caltiki), right (Chris of chrisandsarahb, Dinah, "Hula Girl" Spike)


left ("Insect Surfer" JonPaul, Mr. J), right (Jungle Ginger, Atomic Tiki Punk, Mrs. Caltiki)


left (Kick The Reverb & his daughter), right (Whorehay aka Mambo King & Dana)


Oops, I can't find HappyChi in any of my pictures. Sorry Stacey.

And oh yeah, Crazy Al showed up towards the end.

I had a great time! Thanks, Big Tiki Dude, for all your hard work (and HB Kahuna, and everyone else who volunteered, assisted and got the word out). Hopefully this will give Eddie a little help and boost in his recovery process.

I don't like to review my own gigs,
but here is a post from SG101 that sums up the day pretty well.
--------------------------------------------------------------



A wonderful show today at Don's. Reminded me of the SG101 convention shows that I attended. There was over 8 hours of great bands and good times. There was a ton of love for Eddie, for surf, and for each other. There were more than a few choked-up and teary eyed people during various points of the show. Eddie was in attendance, but unfortunately couldn't play. He was grinnin' from ear-to-ear, blown away that so many people cared so much to help him.

A brief rundown:

The Men of Mystery: terrific Shadows tribute band; nice way to open the show.

The Riptides: solid and fun tradition-style surf. Good set.

Bel Airs Reunion: Paul Johnson, Dick Dodds, the original keyboard player, Jim Frias on sax, and (as PJ Moto said) Matt Quilter was channeling Eddie Bertrand. Artie Fisher joined in on the last three songs. Smiles and joy, everywhere. Pure magic.

The Eddie and the Showmen Tribute Band was a great enegetic set by John Benton and John Blair on guitars, Dick dodds on drums, JIm Frias on sax, and Matt on bass. Smiles all around. Magic.

The Secret Sammurai fllored everybody with their jaw-dropping virtuosity.

The Outerwave played a solid traditional-style set, whcih inclued a cool version of the Mermen's "Curve".

Ventures-Mania, featuring Deke Dickerson was off-the-hook in energy, authenticty, and volume. It's not often that you hear Showmnan amps breaking-up. Very cool, but only 15 minutes long.

Slacktone: no words can describe the greatness of these guys. Wow!!! Worship Worship Worship

The Eliminators: GREAT, GREAT GREAT! (How is it that the tone of these guys through the same backline sounded significantly better than every band tha preceded them?) Awesome!

The Insect surfers: always a favorite of mine. They played a lot of very cool new material. Can't wait for the next CD! Phenomenal set.

It was great seeing so many SG101'ers there, many having travelled great distances through miserable conditions to make it to the show.

A wonderful day. Now I'm going to sleep.
