Caught Ernie's show (he's 90 yrs old) at Kon Tiki Tucson New Years Eve. It was a lot of fun. He's still doing his thing. Love the red high tops.

He's getting pretty long in the tooth, but the show as a blast and he still talks to all his fans and loves to take pics with you.

Glad to see Ernie still performing. He is a real Hawaiian treasure!!

I heard they are selling his CD's now but have'nt been able to find any. He needs a distributor bad!

Cheers and Mahalo,
Jeff

Amazing. One of those instances that make me wish I could just jet around freely to cherish what is left out there. Would love to see his place...

Haven't seen his records on sale recently, But I ran across these two links, the second one sounds good. I'll check at Zia's and see if they have any cds. Let you know.
Check this link from Velvetglass, a local mosaics place with strong tiki. Second link is promising.
