Tiki Oasis 2013 - August 15th - 18th
San Diego Ca

This year at Tiki Oasis we are exploring the Hawaiian influence on American music. Part Americana, part Hawaiiana, Hulabilly is an American music style derived from the blending of Rockabilly and Haole Hawaiian music.

Just as Tiki Style is a blend of Polynesian influences as interpreted through Americans' romanticised view of the South Seas, Hawaiian music has been sentimentalized and interpreted by American musicians. Like waves hitting the Pacific shores, America experienced recurring ukulele crazes with a longing look toward the Hawaiian Sunset. Similarly in the 1930s, 40s and 50s Hawaiian Slack Key guitar and slide guitar seeped into Western music and permeated The Nashville Sound. American musicians used that sound to play their own versions of Hawaiian music classics such as "On the Beach at Waikiki", "Hula Blues", and "Ukulele Lady" and then form their own Westernized Hawaii sound blending Hawaiian music influences with American early rock n roll (Bop) to create the sound of HulaBilly.

From Bob Wills and his Texas Playboys version of "Hawaiian War Chant" in 1946 To Elvis Presley's "Rock-A-Hula Baby" in the Grammy-nominated movie "Blue Hawaii" in 1961, Hulabilly was a popular music form on America's radios, televisions, and movies.

For some reason people are freaking out all over Facebook about the rooms so remember...

You have to buy tickets for the hotel through the Tiki Oasis website--if you call the hotel now they will tell you its booked because TO has bought all the rooms for that weekend

They aren't sold out...yet!


Can't wait!!

There were a lot of great "hulabilly" songs here and there by country and western swing bands over the years.....but only the Hula Girls (That band from costa mesa!) have devoted an entire act to it. peeps should go to tiki oasis if for no other reason then to see them play. Spike Marble was talking about hulabilly before anyone else even really knew what it was! I can honestly say that he is the one person who really started it up again. I hope they are headlining this event.

Wow! And I thought I was the only one who had a problem with that. Back then, I was still in the Hula Girls and we were playing in a side room for about 20 people. During a break I went out there, and as I remember it, it was saturday night, prime time, the crowd was HUGE and here is this band called Kim Tsoy singing songs from urban cowboy (ya know, the movie with Travolta) I couldn't believe what I was hearing and seeing.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lOh08LuunOA and the crowd was lapping it up! Look at them! Tiki Esp, you nailed it.

I have heard cheapo bar bands in bonephuck Egypt sound better. Well, hopefully tiki oasis does it right THIS time and has the Hula Girls on the big stage, at a good hour. The Hula Girls deserve it.

Booked it Dan-O!

Can't wait for August.

It's a leap O faith to book tickets without the agenda up - but what else are you going to do the 15th - 18th of August?



Hope we get some tikiyaki orchestra action - There's plenty of Hula but not much Billy with those awesome dudes!

Cheers!

Lucas, ESP,
You should be ashamed of yourselves bashing Kim Tsoy!?!
Can you name an old timer who actually played in a Tiki Restaurant and has an lp from that era that you would rather see onstage? Please let me know and I will book them. Next you're gonna be making fun of Ernie Menahune? Or Robert Drasnin?
Kim Tsoy played some of the tunes that he would have played back in the day when he headlined The Luau Hut
http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?mode=viewtopic&topic=32449&forum=2&start=0

He also played some of the stuff he has been playing since then (40 years of country music)
I support him and applaud him for bringing himself, his music, and his Aloha spirit to Tiki Oasis.

FYI, he wanted to play Hawaiian Wedding Song (from his orig LP) and I asked him not to cause it is a clunker for a live set.
