Funny you should mention Exotiki - that's my pal, Jeff Ross on manouche guitar

For sure there are some Django tunes that would work, like Manoir de Mes Reves and Oriental Shuffle.

My petite Bouche is a Gitane DG300. It has served me well, although I'd love to have an AJL or a Shopis

I will agree with posts already mentioned. I am looking forward to Ven-Tiki lounge opening. It will be Tiki a little closer to home.

No tiki bar in Pismo or Morro? That seems like a crying shame. Can't go to McLintocks every night!

Aloha,

I like to play ukulele, and my band, TIKI COWBOYS plays Island~Americana songs about Surf, Sand, Sun and/or Wood to keep things Tiki-ish in the broadest sense of the Tiki genre!

Check out our original sound at:

If you're serious about doing this, I've found that an average audience composed of non-musicians responds most favorably to tunes with which they're familiar. If you took a popular song well known to them (and this depends on the age group) like, say, Guns 'n Roses' "Welcome To The Jungle", then Hawaiianize or Exoticize it, you're likely to get a little participation from them. You might even get some compliments. Otherwise, you're just one step above being Sonic Wallpaper and you've spent all of that time and effort learning involved arrangements for nothing.

Ha! No McLintocks . It is a crying shame though. As far as Tiki bars is concerned there's nothing in Pismo. San Luis Obispo has a bar called Creeky Tiki, but I would not categorize it as a Tiki bar. More of a surf pub with a few Tikis. Morro Bay has the Harbor Hut, but its not quite the same after the remodel a few years back.

Try Renn Loren & the Hawaii Project's 50th State of Mind for something quite different.... Exotica Rock, The Doors go tropical/exotica....

You can find it on Spotify.

If you like it simply email me and I'll send you the MP3s.
