Can anyone give me any information on The Blue Hawaiians, do they still play live in the L.A. or OC area?

Does anyone know ANYTHING about this band? I know they have been around for awhile, I think I read somewhere that they used to play at the Lava Lounge in L.A. on Thursday nights once upon a time. I would like to hear them play live, if at all possible. Or am I just to late as usual?

Actually I just tried that link and it looks like it's still under some construction. But Yes, they do still play around occasionally. I just saw them a few weeks ago in Hollywood at King King's with Ape. According to their former producer and friend (who I work next-door to) they've had some ups and downs in the past couple of years, but are now trying to get back in the groove again. (I think this same person is also building their website.) I wish them luck as they are one of the best surf/exotica bands around today.

If you live near the LA area I can let you know when I see one of their shows advertised again.

The Blue Hawaiians are a great band and not to be missed. Unfortunately I had to take off early from the Ape show and missed them

BUT I have seen them before and the hat changing keyboard player is the best - an all around great group!

The Blue Hawaiians are in high rotation on my CD player. I noticed on Amazon just recently that "Christmas on Big Island" is once again available after being long OOP. I really dig their sound, but haven't seen them live.

The Christmas on Big Island cd is a must. It's a great addition to a mixture of vintage Christmas music during the holidays.

They've done several compilation bits as well.

I believe that they still play at the Lava Lunge weekly, but it has been about a year since I was there last. I think they play on Wed nights

I heard a rumour that The Blue Hawaiians were recording a new live album at the Lava Lounge on Feb. 10th and 11th. Anyone know if there is any truth to this?

From the little bit of info I've been told, yes it's true...taping another live album at the Lava Lounge on Feb. 10th and the 11th. I don't know if it's open to the public the night of the performances, you can send an email to The Lava Lounge and get your name put on the list if your interested in attending. info@lavahollywood.com

What's the best Blue Hawaiian CD to start with? I have the Aqua Velvets Nodad CD and that's one of my all time favorites.

I have "Sway" and "Live at the Lava Lounge" and I HIGHLY recommend both. "Sway" has the most gorgeous version of "Hawaii 5-0" I've ever heard.

If I had to pick just one I guess I would go for Sway. Although I really like Savage Night alot too.
