Aloha Villagers!

Start planning your wardrobes, alert your friends, book your room and plan to attend The Hukilau in 2014, this will be our Final Aloha. Don't miss this final year of celebration with Tiki Kiliki, her team and cast of amazing entertainers & speakers as we celebrate the continued life of the greatest Polynesian Palace in the World - the Mai-Kai!

So please join us for the Big Kahuna - The Hukilau to end all Hukilaus! We are extending the event to 5 glorious days in the sun this year. Each one will bring new experiences and special performances for you! You can purchase
Tickets and book your Hotel Reservations now! We are so happy to be back at the Bahia Mar for our final year!

The Final Aloha…..it will be 13 years since The Hukilau debuted in Atlanta, GA honoring a historic Trader Vic's location. We have called the Mai-Kai and Fort Lauderdale home ever since. The Mai-Kai will always continue to be that home for the many villagers that have attended since 2003 to experience an event that has hosted thousands of Tikiphiles from all over the world. We feel honored to have accomplished what we set out to do many years ago - to bring awareness to Tiki palaces on the East Coast and to help in their preservation so that many more generations are able to enjoy the spirit of Aloha.

Thank you, WD, and THANK YOU HUKILAU! Though we are sad this is the last one, we are proud to be heading over to the right coast for this event!
For those of you in the florida neck of the woods who have not heard of us, we are a highly professional trio of Hawaiian musicians who have been together 10+ years and have played literally 100s of gigs in our current set up! The style of music we play is vintage Hawaiian hapa haole music! Nothing anyone else is really doing! if you loved Don Ho and Sam Kapu singing to Bobby and Cindy Brady, you are gonna LOVE us! No slack key, no Jawaiian, no rap! Only the most classic Hawaiian love songs!

A bit about each of us:

Kevin "Tiki Bong" Bullat: He is our steel guitar player, a master of the C6 tuning and a fine fellow to boot! One of the first banned members of this forum, and a real pirate! Kevin is (like myself) one of the founding members of that great rockabilly/surf band, the Hula Girls, and has done session work with a lot of artists including Big Sandy.....you are going to love the sound of his mellow and highly authentic steel guitar!

Palika "pat" Enos: Pat is our uke player and singer. Pat grew up as a Hawaiian beach boy, hanging around Waikiki in the 60's, surfing, flirting with the tourist girls...if you have seen "Blue Hawaii", he was like one of Elvis' beach friends....Pat has a golden voice, a true crooner...sort of a cross between Mel Torme and Pat Boone but with a little bit of Mr. Rorke from fantasy island thrown in(if Mr. rorke was a mob boss, that is!)..Pat has a singular style on the ukulele, honed from a lifetime of playing. A natural musician, Pat plays his Uke like a jazz guitar, with all the extended chord voicings and crafty inversions....

Lucas "the douchebag/sociopath" Vigor: That's me, and I am the bass player. I grew up playing the violin, bass, piano, vibes and drums, and listened to jazz and exotica since I was a little kid...I currently play only with this band, but I am also a member of the Orange County Symphony, where my main deal is classical music...I was also a founding member of The Hula Girls and have played in more rock bands then I care to mention.

Hukilau, I hope you are ready for us! And I hope you didn't mind my extended band bio! (I didn't really like the bio that is on our website, feeling it to be a pack of lies and all twisted up like a little sand basket.....but they say there is no such thing as bad press!)
