Well that was one hell of a weekend. I don't know how The Hula Girls always get roped into playing EVERY day of the festivals that happen (like we did at Tiki Oasis) but it sure is draining. We played 6 - 1 hour sets (approx 80 songs throughout the weekend). I missed seeing the car show, so I get stoked to see photos from it. Mike's Caddy is amazing, by the way. Immaculate. We DID have a blast though. Christian won $400, Doug made 'friends' in the bars, and I had the distinct honor of Deke Dickerson coming to the pool to see us play.
Thanks for all of ths support from our tiki buddies, it was great to see some of you guys out there (Tiki Tim, BigToe and Audry, Brent, and others who I can't remember at this time) ! I think we won over some rockabilly fans too.
We'd also like to thank our sponsor Tres Noir. They make some great sunglasses. Check 'em out!
Maybe we'll be back next year. We'll see.
Here's a great video about this year's Viva. The Hula Girls are featured toward the beginning, and toward the end, I am included in a video montage with Duane Eddy!! and The Ventures!! Absolutley my heroes. So stoked!
