I do believe I had the pleasure of seeing Bill Tapia, if memory serves, a few years ago, at the Last Remaining Seat Series sponsored by the L.A. Conservancy at the Orpheum Theatre featuring the film "From Here to Eternity". So it was truly a remarkable experience to see him up close and personal. His stories were great, it was an honor.
My hats off to you King for putting together a great show! The film clips, the Friki Tikis, the "live" video, the East Indies Tour--was a real treat! Thank you for a most wonderful evening.
And I'll work on my hula to help out Shelly next time!

Hey, is this still happening? I've been planning on it, but this is the only mention I've seen of the event, and Friday's fast approaching. Fisherman Trio is playing at the Lava Lounge that same night, and I'm trying to decide between the two. I need more information!!!
