Once I saw Peter Pan, and Tinkerbell was going to die!!! I had to clap my hands...a long time. She lived.
Ever since I read Rev Ben's post about Crazy Al's accident I've been clapping my hands...will he live??? OR WON'T HE??
Find out this Friday at Tiki Taix as Crazy Al and Eric from APE jam with the Friki Tikis at TIKI TAIX. (No Crazy Al? No Eric! GOT IT?!)

Wow, Denny, what a catch you made with Bill Tapia! It was amazing to watch him play and sing and think that this 96 year old man has BEEN there, like a time machine:
Smoked weed with Louis Armstrong in the 20s, played with Lani McIntyre, witnessed Pearl Harbour, tipped the raft at the Tonga Room (and fell in with the whole band)...

In Japan they call these veterans "Living Treasures". And he is, and so lucid and agile at that.

Loved Miehana's 16mm reels too, and Luka Grogg's and Trader Pup's concept videos...

Keep it up, a monthly Tiki event to mark on your calendar!

We are all stoked to have Bill and King Kukulele come play for us next month in Santa Cruz at Uke-Fest West.

http://ukefestwest.com

This weekend in April is going to be mind blowing. Anybody who resonates with the uke needs to be at this gathering.

Hey You All!!!
Thanks so much for coming out last night and welcoming an old friend into the gang. I mean a really old friend. 96 years and still ripping it up. I remember a special moment while I was onstage and the Friki Tikis were just going wild, running amok, I had no idea where they were going to take it, it was our closest thing to Spinal Taps "Jazz Odyssey" and I looked over at Bill and he had this totally bewildered and stunned look on his face! It was at that moment that I remembered that he was supposed to come up and do a few songs with us, and I think he was starting to have second thoughts. I love that guy. He's 96 years old, he's funny, fresh, flirty and I think he makes me appreciate life more just by knowing him. Thank you all again for being so welcoming to him.

And thanks again to Iuka and Rodd Grogg for their monthly Tiki Bar report, Miehana for his amazing 60 year old musical movies, Trader Pup for welcoming all of us into a behind the scenes look at the Spectacular East Indies Room, Crazy Al for Keeping Hope Alive! (wait till you see what he's cooking up for next month) Sugar Caddy Daddy for putting the word out on his events calendar

Randy and Naomi Jensen (AquaRj) came down from Northern California for a very special wedding, and it was an honor to have them at Tiki Taix!

M A H A A A A A A A L O !!!

WOW! WOW! WOW! YOU MUST BUY THIS CD!!!!

Thanks for another great event, we had lots of fun.
Now for those of you who did not make it, I highly reccomend the King's new CD. We listend to it several times on the drive back, and it's great (not to mention the cover art by Shag).

Very, Very Cool King!! You're the new Bob (Don Ho) Hope of the century!! Isn't it cool when you get a chance to see a bit of history along with a great show. Although I do have one complaint....... I was under the impression that this was supposed to be a "Trekky" meet up. I even brought my Klingon decoder ring Oh well, I still enjoyed the great vintage Polynisian movies, Bill's performances, and the token Star Trek salutes. It made me feel more at home

ps...... keep working on the medleys, eventually you may find a groove your drummer doesn't know...... nah...... I doubt it. Thanks again!!
