Aloha, Friends!

Well, this is it! Our final scheduled public performance of the summer. With the private luau bookings we've gotten, our various summer travel schedules and our focus on our upcoming recording, we just won't be able to hit the nightclub stages for several months. So we ask you to please join us this Thursday, May 20 at The Purple Orchid in El Segundo for a very special evening unlike any other Maikai Gents show you may have already experienced. We've got new tunes to play for you and a wonderful line-up of guest performers such as: the ever-charming Cherry Capri, the lovely and seductive Brandy LaPlante, the astounding bar magic of Lincoln and the guitar virtuosity of Lord Hunt! This BIG show begins at 9:00PM and can be yours to behold for the paltry sum of $3. Extravagant entertainment at affordable prices! Please arrive early and delight in the tiki atmosphere and delicious frosty tropical cocktails (served up by the city's most delightful bartendresses) that have made The Purple Orchid the most talked about and enjoyable new bar in town. This fine establishment is located at:

221 Richmond Street
El Segundo CA 90245
(310)322-5829

If you've been thinking about seeing The Maikai Gents, now is the time! It'll be quite awhile until we're back on the public stage so don't put it off! We'd love to see you and say aloha in person this Thursday night.

-The Maikai Gents


p.s. We'll also be having a "bake sale" at the show to raise funds for our recording. Beautiful and playful Maikai Gents stickers and tiki jewelry will take the place of cupcakes and banana bread.

Just added to our "bake sale" this Thursday night at The Purple Orchid: Genuine El Dorado Club tiki charms and necklaces including The Mysterious Miss Mauna Loa line(modeled after you know who!). Buy one and have your photo taken with the jewelry and the woman who inspired it. Fun!

And to answer a private e-mail in public: Indeed it is THE Lord Hunt, formerly of The Bomboras (and former Maikai Gent) who will be reuniting with us onstage at The Purple Orchid this Thursday, May 20. 9:00PM showtime. See you there for more show than you can shake a lei at!

Aloha! With all the special guests, I guess Iuka forgot to mention that I'll be there, too! Dancing hula is what I do, so as the song goes: keep your eyes on the hands! Can't wait to see you all at this BIG show.

Had a great time at the show! Thanks for the invite Iuka Grogg, sorry we had to cut out at 11:30pm, work is such a drag.

Woweewow! What a fun time last night! Thanks to each and everyone of you for attending. That was an amazing turnout! Thanks to Wersmo Derinc for rewarding the tiki faithful with a FREE show. Yup, he decided to nix the door charge and give you the extravaganza. Well, we sure had an amazing time and what made it so memorable was seeing so many happy people enjoying themselves there. As the old showbiz adage goes(but in our case it's TRUE), we've got the greatest fans in the world! Looking forward to hitting the nightclub stage again when in a few months. In the meantime, if anyone has any pictures from last night, please send some our way. Mahalo!

Superb, wonderful time.

I'm still humming along to Cherry Capri's version of "Pineapple Princess" and I may never look at a papaya the same way again.
Also, I think you saved the best song for last on your encore.

I hope my memories can hold me over until the next show, whenever that is.

PS-any cover would have been well worth the event).
