Why not just call it Hillbilly then?


There's room for both, whether we're talking "Blue Hawaii" Elvis…



Who by the way was also known as the "HILLBILLY Cat".


Or "Punkin' Puss & Mushmouse"…



Or the "Hillbilly Bears"…

Hmmm... it would appear that both GROG and Tiki-ESP are self-censoring Hillybilly haters who take issue with the "derailment" of this year's Tiki Oasis.

If you're really serious about HULA-billy as a musical genre then go to
this thread I started, otherwise HILL-billies in mid-century pop culture were Gol' durned FUN !!

Seriously though I think Hillbillies might share even more of a zeitgeist with Tiki than the past Oasis themes of "Spy" or "South of the Border". (Actually I don't even know what "zeitgeist" means but the Bigbro uses that word a lot).

Here's my reason... I think backwoods disinhibition of Hillbillies resonated with middle class suburban L7's much in the same way the "modern primitive" appeal of Tiki did. Hillbillies were free from all of the uptight social conventions that pre-counterculture America had to adhere to. Hillbillies said whatever was on their mind, made their own moonshine, married their underaged cousins, and shot at those pesky revenuers.

I think that was part of the big appeal of the "Beverly Hillbillies"' which was one of the most successful sitcoms in television history, along with other popular rural themed comedies like "Green Acres", "Petticoat Junction", "Andy Griffith", and "Gomer Pyle".

And before the "Beverly Hillbillies"' there were "The Real McCoys" who hit the airways roughly around the same time Tikis starting popping up in "Polynesian" restaurants.

The Hillbilly craze was sweeping the nation !!

You take from the event what you will, or call it whatever you like. But seems disingenuous to the essence of the event when it is called a "Hulabilly" event, but yet a majority of the marketing, and posts here, are referencing the Hillybilly theme. These are distinctly two different words, with different meanings. Its like going into a restaurant that on the outside advertises as French cuisine, but once you are inside its serving Mexican, or vice versa.

People take the theme however they want and decorate/dress up however they see fit. Doesn't matter in the end because the point of Oasis is to have fun...which it seems everyone does regardless of theme. Every year people bitch, bitch, bitch -- oh that's not tiki, oh South of the Border - that's not tiki, oh Spytiki--that's not tiki, this year is Hulabilly not Hillbilly how dare you think differently!! blah, blah, blah It does not matter. And if you think it does DON'T GO. Please..stay home and let the rest of us have a blast.

The bands are booked, the hotel is full, volunteers are waiting for their assignments and Tiki Oasis is just over 2 months away.

Bring on the moonshine drinking rockabillies and let's get on with it!

oh and Cammo you have an unending bank of hillbilly knowledge...or a lot of free time on your hands

John-O, with all of the rednecks and hillbilly types on "reality TV" I would say it has spurred quite the comeback.
