Pretty funny/ sad.



You noticed that too, huh?

Regardless of what the theme is people are always going to have their opinion on it.

I see plenty of people who don't participate in dressing up to go along with the theme and instead just wear what they would normally wear to a tiki related gathering and they seem to have just as much fun as the rest of us.

Great party this year Otto.

I loved the Spy theme..and I had no interest in how it connected to a tiki event..I just am partial to men in suits and tuxes

Funny stuff, John-O. I'd like to see what Lucas would do for an Oasis. It would probably be a really good and traditional one.

----------------

But every year it's the same.... so much complaining about Oasis.
Pretty funny/ sad.






The only thing I would like to see is my band, the Smokin' Menehunes, doing a poolside gig. We have not played tiki oasis since 2004, I believe. Though I love all the tiki offshoots, my first love is the tiki experience as it relates to the period of time from 1950 to 1970. Ok, I admit...the brady bunch episode. Blue hawaii. Diamondhead. South pacific.
So if I was in charge of the theming, yeah, it would be hawaiian bands and all that stuff. It would be Waikiki circa 1960. I also would switch the emphasis to food. having recently come back from the islands, one thing that impressed me over there was the food. I would love to see exotic fruits and vegetables...stuff made out of taro and breadfruit, for example, available for consumption...like it is in hawaii...stalls...selling pineapple, shrimp, all that good stuff.
Of course, there are only a few of us interested in that type of thing, so I think my idea would ruin the event. There are some excellent smaller events that cater more to what I like, but it would be nice to see tiki oasis devote at least part of the time to the pure tiki experience. On the other hand, those room parties rock out! And there are so many bands that play good surf and other stuff that play those, and people love it....it just would be nice to have some traditional waikiki vibe added in some small way.
I was told by someone that my band the smokin' menehunes "was not the right element for tiki oasis"....and yeah, i have a problem understanding that. Poolside performance of real vintage hawaiian music...how is that not tiki?
Other then that, tiki oasis is a really cool event.

I still think someone should check out paradise point in san diego as a possible alternative place to hold the event. partying in an ornamental tropical jungle would be awesome!

I have read all the comments and suggestions on how to change/improve /re-work Tiki Oasis that has been posted here on TC. We always appreciate constructive comments and try our best to include things to our event to make it that much better.

I do want to add that Otto and I do Tiki Oasis because we are big fans of 'TIKI' (obviously!) and yes that can be interpreted in many ways... so the most simple way I can put it is that Otto and I present something we are very proud of at Tiki Oasis and an interpretation of Tiki that we have put some solid thinking into. We spend our days at our demanding day jobs, our evenings and weekends with our kids, we do our side projects... Djing for Otto and Dancing with The Devil-Ettes for Baby Doe... and we somehow fit in leading hikes with the Cub Scouts, being room parents and anything else we can do for our kids and when our day is done we spend our NIGHTS working on TIKI OASIS! It takes over a year to plan this event (and we do not do it alone - see below). What we present at Tiki Oasis is something we are proud of and excited about.... it is our passion, our hobby, our obsession. If you want the event to be authentic Hawaiian, there are other events that are already doing this quite well (wayyy better than we are!) that you can attend, If you only like parts of the event, enjoy those bits, if you want to ignore some parts of the event (like kids or burlesque dancers or the themes) please do...I believe you will still have fun.

What we present is from our heart. Otto and I are extremely proud of what we have been able to accomplish over the last 12 years of creating and producing Tiki Oasis and thrilled that we have been able to work with so many artists, musicians, people that we admire, fans, friends, etc that all believe in Tiki Oasis.


See many of you at the next one!
XO Baby Doe


++++++++++++

It is time for the MEGA thank you from the Tiki Oasis organizers!

When we say that it takes a TIKI ARMY to make Tiki Oasis happen we are soooo NOT fibbing! Everyone from our staff to our performers to our volunteers to the vendors to the artists to our sponsors are the MAGIC behind making Tiki Oasis such a joy for all who attend!

HIGH FIVES and FIST BUMPS to everyone listed below!! (Sorry in advance if I missed someone!)

Thank you all, from the von Stroheim Family, for keeping Tiki Oasis alive and amazing year after year!

Tiki Oasis is a special event. I know I'll support it whatever the theme. If it's something I detest, such as punk, I may stay off site, but I'll still be there for the party atmosphere. (The hotel will sell out anyway!) I appreciate the tremendous hard work that goes into this event. We all give suggestions because we all have likes and dislikes and want to see our favorites. But unless we put on our own event we shouldn't cry because we don't get our way.

Personally, I don't see how you can separate Tiki from the Hawaii, South Seas vibe. I think the Smokin' Menehunes are terrific and would love to see them by the pool. But again, the event is too much fun to miss regardless.

We do listen to people's likes and dislikes cause that means you guys want to see the event get better and improve! It is hard to please everyone but honestly we are our own harshest critics! Sometimes we try things and they work and sometimes they don't! If we could we would do more than one TO so we could really get it right!

I agree with everything you say (and thank you for supporting our band!)

I hope babydoe does not take my suggestions as a complaint. It's not. Just what I would personally like to see, and nothing more. The tremendous hard work to set up an event like this must be mind boggling.

I also don't see how you can separate tiki from hawaii. BUT, I think where people make the mistake is by comparing modern, post 1970 hawaii to vintage hawaii. Tiki in hawaii is not about slack key, folky acoustic guitar and uke stuff, or jawaiian...and I think that's what more then a few tiki centralites think people like me are talking about.

Nope. It's jazzy, swinging music that a band like mine (and the sweet hollywaiians) play, NOT the modern stuff....so when you think tiki in hawaii, don't think "shaka brah" or anything like that....picture the brady family having their luau..or Elvis with his beach boys in "Blue hawaii".....

Ok? The Hukilau Hulas CD is a fine example of great hawaiian music...hapa haole!

And I am not talking either about pre-tiki stuff from the 20's and 30's either.

Having said that (jeff will kill me for this) I don't consider garage rock, punk or surf to be tiki at all. BUT, I realize that if we stick to my idea of what tiki should be, few would come to an event like this. You practically need the mosh pits and the 80's ska bands to keep a modern crowd's interest.

So on one hand, I realize the reason for bringing in all the stuff that is only marginally related to anything found in Sven's BOT (for example) and calling it tiki...or even, centering your whole event around it is to actually bring people in....part of me would like to see tiki oasis modified a little...for purely selfish reasons, of course!

I can tell you this: I have had fun at all three tiki oasis I have attended, but have to be honest and say that the music I enjoyed the best was when the mai-kai gents dudes were playing in the elevator a few years back. That was the bomb....and I rode the elevator up and down all night listening to them.

I am rethinking a "Punk" theme,
At my age I would look ridiculous in bondage pants!

Thanks Baby Doe and Otto for taking the time out your busy schedule to work on an event that only occurs once a year. Your time, as we all know, is precious. To dedicate those extra moments for the planning, coordinating, booking, etc. cannot go without a big big thanks.

The theme for this year was awesome. For next years theme - hulabilly - is there any fashion/design you could direct me to for ideas?

Thanks!

first off, thanks to everyone for participating in this year's event and theme and for ideas posted here.
Because we only do a show ONE time a year it can take a few years to get around to some of these ideas!!

As for the HULABILLY theme next year, we will post images, musical references, and eventually a history of HulaBilly on the Tiki Oasis Website before the end of the year and announce it here.

Suffice to say that HulaBilly has its roots in Paniolos but really flourished in the 1930s-1940s in middle California (Fresno, Bakersfield, Riverside) as Western Swing. Almost all groups featured slack key guitar - with the likes of Bob Wills, Spade Cooley, Bob Dunn being the most famous. Also, pretty much every one of those groups did covers of some Hawaiian tunes. Likewise, some Hawaiian groups of the time played danceable Western Swing rhythms for mainland tourists. It continued as a minor sub-genre of country music and/or Rockabilly music and I would cite it's official end with Blue Hawaii and Elvis' "Rock-A-Hula"
Of course Elvis was a major HulaBilly force for the better part of his career. ; )

I don't want to start a big debate on this (yet), just want to give some reference because a lot of people are asking about it

I'm OK with whatever you decide to do. I've not been disappointed yet! The creativity and outlandish twists and turns of Tiki Oasis always pleases me to no end. No matter what the theme, I seem to just stick to straight up Tiki wear (except, of course, with a costume change for Tiki Hell) . Perhaps this is the perfect place to begin The Official Tiki Oasis 2013 thread for TO13?

I am glad Otto brought up the Central California "Western Swing" bands
which my great Aunt "Rose Maddox" of the Maddox Brothers & Rose where a big part of,
this is proto-Rockabilly and did have a heavy steel guitar presence in the sound.
