The Ding Dong Devils are excited to be playing at Forbidden Island's 4th Annual Luau on Sunday, May 29th (Memorial Day weekend)! We're going on at 7pm, and playing several sets.

The luau kicks off at 2pm. During the daytime, there will be a pig roast, a live tiki carver, Hawaiian music from the Faux Hawaiians, hula dancing by Tahiti Nui Dance Troupe, ukulele jam session/clinic by Tiki King, lei making by Aileen Camello, a drink demonstration by FI mixologist Suzanne Long and tunes from DJ Fitz.

Then at dusk, live fire dancing by Fire Pixie! Then at 7pm, the Ding Dong Devils will be making their NorCal debut, playing our instrumentals and vocal numbers which celebrate the "tiki" lifestyle and extoll the virtues of classic and tropical cocktails (such as those served at Forbidden Island), with our songs such as "Ballad of a Taboo Image," "Sufferin' Bastard," "Theme from 'The Belly Dancers of Bali Bali'," "Jungle Doctor," "(You Got Me) Stuck Like a Luau Pig" and "Head Shrinker." Hear some samples here:

"The humor, lyrics and melodies of this eclectic troupe of fez-topped vaudevillians is positively contagious and truly provides the perfect sonic backdrop for any Tiki situation." -- Tiki Magazine, Spring 2011

We're looking forward to hanging with NorCal TC'ers! And hopefully, since this is a three-day weekend, this will be a great excuse for a road trip for TC'ers from SoCal and elsewhere!

Brent,

I was thinking about going to this, when you told me about it.
But sadly I don't think I will be able to make it now.

Have a safe trip, and a Great show.

Jeff(btd)

Forbidden Island's 4th Annual Luau. We're going all out this time. This will be the biggest and best Luau yet. Hope you can join us...

Sounds like fun. Unfortunately our de-facto babysitters are out of town then, so it's pretty unlikely for us. Just 19 more years until we can start bringing the kids to FI! Mike, please mark us down for the 23rd annual luau coming up in 2030.

Brent, that would've been fun to see you guys up here in norcal. I might see if I can make it "stag". If so, I'll be standing there requesting Spinout and Resatch-A-Go-Go!

-Randy

Thanks Randy--it would be great to see you again--hopefully things might work out for you to get over to FI! We don't do those Del Noah & the Mt. Ararat Finks songs in the Ding Dong Devils, but we may do a Del Noah song, rearranged for our style--"The Lonely Bultaco."

I haven't been to the Forbidden Island in a long time, I miss living back up North because then I could go at any given point and time!

When there's money practically raining from the ceiling, you know you're in for a good time (even though you obviously don't touch it otherwise you'll receive a near-death Tiki Curse!)

I'll be camping at the Russian River that weekend ... so close yet so far!

Now that Tiki Caliente 3 has ended, it's time for me to look forward to the second of my back-to-back Tiki weekends! Forbidden Island's Luau is less that a week away!

Man, the Forbidden Island Luau went off--what a blast! A great crowd all day (from what I heard it was the biggest attended event they'd had to date)--excellent food (mmm, the roasted pig was tender and delicious!), drink (of course, and Suzanne's drink demo), Faux Hawaiians, Tiki King, hula dancers, leis. Fire Pixie went on at dusk between our two sets and wowed everybody! The Ding Dong Devils had a bunch of NorCal non-tiki friends come down who hadn't been to FI before (including Puka von Pele's sister, who'd never seen her play live) who it was great to see. Christopher also shot a video Saturday which will be on the FI website. Just an incredible weekend!
