Aloha, Friends!

Please join us Wednesday June 4 as we beam our show live to all the world! You have two ways to see us:

1. Come out and be part of our fabulous live audience. The show is FREE, starts at 9:00PM and will be at
Kulak's Woodshed
5230-1/2 Laurel Canyon Blvd.
North Hollywood, CA 91607
818-766-9913
There will be live music before us, so arrive early. We'll begin performing at 9:00 Pacific Standard Time. The club interior will feature tikis by Dawna (Tikifille)! There will be some camera shots of the audience, so be sure to dress in your finest aloha attire.


2. Relax in the comfort of your home tiki lounge, log on to the worldwide web and enjoy our show live on your very own home computer. Here's how: Go to
www.kulakswoodshed.com and click on the upper left-hand corner where it says "click for FREE 24/7 video webcast." That's it! So if you're in Italy beach-bumming around, or England studying architecture, or Rochester doing your thing, or even Oahu carving tikis, you can still swoon to our old-time Hawaiian crooning. Pass this info along to all your pals around the globe who will enjoy the blissful sounds of Hawaii's golden yesteryears.

Of course, if you're in the area we would love for you to come out and join us in person. We'll have souvenirs, sing-alongs, audience participation tippling and all sorts of fun. Plus, we like to see your smiling faces!

p.s. If you'd like to hear the report on tiki culture that featured our music and aired on public radio a few weeks ago here are the links (Thanks again to reporter Alex Cohen for including us in her report):

Here's the link to the story as it aired on The California Report, scroll down to May 9 and click on "Tiki Culture Makes a Comeback". This featured less of our music and more of Iuka Grogg.

Here's the link to the story as it aired on All Things Considered. This featured more music and less Grogg.

I hope I can be there. If I do make it or not, Poly Pop uumm.. this falls under the huge favor category...I live 4.87 minutes from the event (per mapquest) either way I will need help bringing home my tikis. If I'm there I just need muscle. If I'm not there I need a delivery. PM me if you're game. Per the hostess, they won't be too big because she and I have to get them there. Thanks, Dawna

Aloha, All!

If you happen to watch our show via your computer, drop us an e-mail and let us know how it went (technically).
mkgents@yahoo.com Did the audio and video come through? Was it jerky or smooth? Were you able to e-mail requests? Etc, etc, etc... This is our first webcast and although we're not handling any of the technical side, we'd like to know how it went for you, the home viewer. If you come in person to see us, you can give us feedback on body/breath odor(should smell naturally of coconuts), beverage quality, shoes tied properly, etc, etc, etc... Mahalo and see you soon!

I am planing on tunin' into the ether to catch the show. Kulak's seems like it has a pretty cool audio/video set-up workin'. I hope it goes smoothly on all sides. Be sure to tell the cameraman to fill the lens with plenty of tikifille's carvings from time to time. All you folks in the audience be sure to smile when the camera is aiming at you. No monkey business though!
Big bro may really be watchin!

Fair warning:
I've just found out that Kulak's is an unlicensed establishment. This means that it's a tea and coffe kind of joint. Of course, I would never recommend airplane bottles or flasks or the like, especially to this group of moderates. Chikitiki take heed: Perhaps a good opportunity to bring along some of your fab flasks to sell. You may get some deperates if you pre-fill 'em. I write this not to discourage anyone from coming to the show, only to encourage your creativity... wink wink.

I'm watching the live broadcast right now, which is starting with someone singing karaoke music (not exotica/tropical/hawaiian). It sounds like she has a good voice, but the audio is way over-saturated through the internet! Looks like fun so far.....

I can't wait to see the MK Gents in another 45 minutes!

Oh, and there's maybe (guessing) about a dozen people there. The video is good since it's not a still camera, but a very smooth roving camera. I can see Iuka Grog relaxing and I can hear Tikifille's(?) laugh. The tikis she has there are awesome! Damn, the woman can carve!

I'm sure more people will arrive just before 9 pm.

Hey, I'm watching it too, she has a great singing voice, very nice. I don't know if it's my speakers but the sound is a little fuzzy. The video is clear.
Now I'm having transmission problems, looks like a tiki fell on her.
My bad. I clicked on the slower modem speed and the transmission is much betta'.

For those watching on Windows Media Player:

Go to the top of the Windows Media Toolbar,
Click on "View"
Then "Enhancements",
Then "Graphic Equalizer",

Roll off (lower) the bottom end (31hz) and increase the top end (16khz) and the sound won't be as distorted. Play around with the EQ and you can actually pick up everyones conversations!

Hope this helps

I'm watching at 300K, actually like 500k, and it's crystal clear video, but I can't get the audio just right, there's that buzz, metallic quality...
They should investigate Realplayer streaming, as I've noticed all streaming on WindowsMedia sounds tinny.

What a remarkable place... has that real post-apocalyptic look about it! Cool!
