SUNDAY MAY 9 : TIKI OASIS AFTER-PARTY, at The Bigfoot Lodge – 3172 Los Feliz Blvd, L.A, 323-662-9227 Doors at 8:00 PM, music at 9:00 PM, $3.00 cover charge
As a cap off for the yearly Tiki News-Caliente Tropics sponsored Tiki Oasis weekender in Palm Springs, we are bringing four Tiki Oasis bands to perform for you here in Los Angeles on Sunday May 9th. The Oasis features all that is Tiki; a daytime bazzare, live entertainment, DJs, slides, film and lots of exotic drinks. THE MAI-KAI GENTS, LUSHY, SESKU ROBA and PROJECT PIMENTO along with Oasis DJ and Bigfoot promoter Lee will all make a direct bee-line from the Oasis to the Bigfoot for a Sunday Evening of Exotica in "Quiet Atwater Village!"
Fresh from their scintillating performance at the ultimate lounge exotica experience, the Tiki Oasis 2004 in Palm Springs, we give you project: pimento - a San Francisco-based band with a potent cocktail of hypnotic sounds from the Theremin mixed with swanky lounge tunes from the 40s, 50, and 60s then played in a space-age pop style with hints of jazz, swing and bossa nova sprinkled on top - all for your listening pleasure!
The way out sounds from LA's own spaced out Theremin and disco ball nunchucks duo will be specially tailored to celebrate all that is TIKI. Beyond easy listening, Seksu Roba's electronic sound comes from a dimension where sex and space go together like fruit and rum. Expect vivid visual and aural pleasure.
LUSHY is a Seattle band devoted to creating a refreshing international style, which blends influences from exotica, jazz and Latin to French pop, ska and lounge. The sounds produced by the band are a post-modern mélange of jazzy, exotica, space-age tiki-Latin surf funk: always interesting, listenable, and danceable. Drawing on the best in modern technology and inspired electric and acoustic playing, the band plays original and unique music. Their performances draw on a keen sense of musicality coupled with a dash of humour, tempered by a good dose of humility and a sense of the absurd. Lushy's debut album on Dionysus delivers a sound firmly rooted in their inspirations, but by no means derivative or copyist!
THE MAIKAI GENTS FEATURING THE MYSTERIOUS MISS MAUNA LOA
The lilting melodies and romantic crooning of The Maikai Gents will call you back to the Hawaii's yesteryears. With softly strumming ukulele and guitars along with beautiful vocal harmonies and the swaying hips of The Mysterious Miss Mauna Loa, The Maikai Gents have created a rare and wonderful phenomenon: a musical group that can entertain and delight audiences anywhere from senior centers to ultra-hip young urbanite soirees. Let their music beckon you to your island paradise.
