Exhibition: Oct 6-29
Book release & signing party
Friday, October 6, 8-11 PM

With Otto Von Stroheim, Sven Kirsten
& over 30 of Today’s Top Tiki Artists

The Art of Tiki is published in conjunction with the 21st Anniversary Tiki Art Exhibition curated by Otto Von Stroheim at La Luz de Jesus Gallery in Los Angeles.

The Art of Tiki is a passionate study of the Tiki idol as an art form. For the first time, contemporary Tiki art is united and presented equally with what inspired it; original mid-century Polynesian pop. Sven Kirsten combines his firsthand experiences in exploring the birth of Tiki style with his intimate knowledge of the Tiki Revival, painting a vivid, visually arresting portrait of a unique, always new art genre.

The Art of Tiki is written by Otto von Stroheim, Sven Kirsten, and Jordan Reicheck, with Introduction by Shag.

Artist list:
Atomikitty a/k/a Susannah Mosher, Bai, BigToe a/k/a Tom Laura, Bosko, Crazy Al Evans, Andrew Brandou, Richey Fahey, Mary Fleener, Geko, Dave Hansen, Mike Hoffman, Doug Horne, Danielle Mann, Mitch O’Connell, Eric October, Brad “Tiki Shark” Parker, Ken Pleasant, Rick Rietveld, Ken Ruzic, Mookie Sato, Scott Scheidly, Shag, Dale Sizer, Thor, Tiki Diablo, Tiki Tony, Michael Uhlenkott, Jeffery Vallance, Donella Vitale, Von Franco, Derek Yaniger.

Tiki Oasis 16: Party on Monster Island Wrap-up and Press Links


Tiki Oasis 16: Party on Monster Island – Epilogue

toSummer is over, kids are back in school and we’re looking towards Halloween and the holiday season. For the most part, most of us have recovered from our Post-Tiki Oasis Depression what with the event and everything leading up to it ending a bit over a month ago. The memory of what many of us feel is the best weekend of the year carries on via social media, especially on the very lively Tiki Oasis Facebook Group where discussions of previous and future events are an hourly occurrence (if you are posting event photos on socials, please tag them #tikio or @thetikioasis).

Event organizers Otto & Baby Doe would like to thank all the sponsors, advertisers, and vendors that participate in Tiki Oasis; the bands and room party hosts for playing long and hard; the amazing vehicles in the car show; the 170 volunteers; our symposium hosts, our core staff for all the advance planning that makes Tiki Oasis happen with special thanks to our GM Tiki Jim Giddings for keeping it running smoothly; and thank you to all of the guests who have fun and enjoy the party!

What about next year you ask? Tiki Oasis’ 2017 theme is International Espionage and will take place August 10 – 13, 2017 at the Historic Bali Hai Restaurant and Crowne Plaza Hanalei Hotel in San Diego, CA. Stay tuned! www.tikioasis.com

And Now a Word From Our Sponsors!

MrCaliforniaMR. CALIFORNIA
Mr. California is the premier leisurewear label for men who drink whiskey—or, perhaps, mai tais—while smoking a pipe and playing jai alai with likeminded ne’er do wells. Today’s Mr. California apparel retains the timeless qualities that made the label notorious in the ‘60’s, with knit and woven shirts, pants, jackets, pj’s and the proverbial much more. And of course, every Mr. California article is made in California, the Golden State. True to the original, updated to suit today’s handsome gentleman. Mr. California. Classic leisurewear for the modern man. Drink a bunch of Zombies! www.mistercal.com

PUSSERS RUMTO16PussersRum
Pusser’s Rum is a world class, award-winning aged dark rum with a distinctively smooth and well-rounded taste. The blend originates from stills in Trinidad and Guyana and is heavily influenced by wooden pot stills that were signature of the Royal Navy beginning in the 1700s and still in operation today. Pusser’s Rum is rich and aromatic with a full bodied, complex flavor. It is crafted in small batches and continues to win accolades amongst its peers. Pusser’s Rum is one of the most historic and traditional rums still available today. (Link site to graphic)

THE CAT EYE CLUB
TO16CatEyeClub
A crispy cool scorpion bowl in the glow of a Mondrian glass wall with crazy hep beats softly lulling in the background?  Don’t mind if I do!

If that sounds like a dream, keep reading!  The Cat Eye Club is a retro cocktail lounge & tiki bar located in Downtown San Diego in the heart of East Village across from Petco Park. Cat Eye Club is inspired by the late 50’s, early 60’s nightlife culture. It pays homage to mid-century cocktail trends with an emphasis on classic and tiki cocktails.

TO16Gaucho

 

GAUCHO RUM
Gaucho Rum exemplifies a zest for adventure similar to what Frank Miller (Partner of Cat Eye Club Cocktail Bar and Tiki Bar) and Ray Digilio (Master Distiller of Kill Devil Spirit Co.) had in mind when they set out to create it.  What were they in pursuit of?  Perhaps it was to concoct a rum that rouses someone to strap a shark under each foot, grab a partner and water ski to that magnificent oasis in the sun.   Others speculate that their motive could have been originality; an all-out quest to formulate a signature rum that rejuvenates classic cocktails and can also be enjoyed neat.  Either way, these natives invite you to bask in the big, tropical, sweet, smooth taste of a spirit made 100% from cane to glass here in San Diego, California. (Link site to graphic)


PARTY ON MONSTER ISLAND
From rubber Godzillas tearing apart the South Seas to surfin’, Go Go dancing Frankenstein and Wolfman, creatures have always been lurking in paradise. This year Tiki Oasis celebrates our monster brethren from King Kong (1939), Godzilla and Creature From the Black Lagoon (1954) to the famous monsters of Hollywood (1932-1950s).

Like lovers of Polynesian Pop, many of the classic monsters we know share the Modern Primitive ethos. Some were discovered in mysterious, exotic, tropical lands but others originated in urban areas and frolicked with average humans.

While Godzilla loved to visit major metropolis’ like Tokyo  he lives on and originates from Monster Island.

The original king of the jungle King Kong was a modern primitive and could be seen cavorting on major architectural landmarks when he wasn’t picking up on chicks in his hometown.

Even the Creature from the Black Lagoon left the Amazon and visited the US.

The classic city monsters made famous in films (The Mummy, Frankenstien, Dracula, Wolfman, The Invisible Man) later got hip to the times and joined the beach/dance party scene. Not only did monsters leave their remote islands and come to the beaches, the Hollywood monster crowd threw their own shindig.

Don your rubber mask and join the monster party at Tiki Oasis 2016!

Timeline of famous monsters
1939: King Kong 1939
1954: Godzilla, Creature From the Black Lagoon
1958: Famous Monsters of Filmland
1962: Monster Mash
1931-1950s: Universal Monsters

TikiOasis_the_tikiyaki_orchestra

The Tikiyaki Orchestra

1 Mai Tais on the Moon – The Tikiyaki Orchestra
Southern California’s premier exotica band, the world famous Tikiyaki Orchestra returns to Tiki Oasis after three years , bringing with them a stellar new lineup, AND a brand new, long awaited fourth album, (their 4th) which will available for the first time at the TO15 “Blast Off” party, Thursday night at The Bali Hai. Performing along with Tikiyaki, is the always amazing Marina the Fire Eating Mermaid.

2 Expo 2000 – The Chocolate Watch Band
Seminal garage band the Chocolate Watchband formed in the San Francisco Bay Area in 1965, making their name locally with a distinctive blend of Anglicised R&B and pure punk raunch. Produced by Ed Cobb, the groups vintage recordings combined this influence with a prominent psychedelic edge across a handful of spectacular singles and three cherished albums. The current line-up features original members Aguilar, Andrijasevich and Abbott, alongside CWB archivist Palao, and as a major bonus, Daryl Hooper, keyboard player and founder member of another legendary garage rock combo, The Seeds. And part of the new Chocolate Watchband show will be devoted to songs made famous by the Seeds.

fono_66

FONO66

3 Astronautilus – FONO66
4 Ready Steady Die! – FONO66
Fono66 is the exotic sound of “Primodica”— an intoxicating blend of Primitive and Modern tones that provide a unique soundtrack for the modern Exotica enthusiast who has outgrown the ordinary. Erupting forth from the fires of creation, four Space-Age Primordials, Nick Walusko, Todd Jaeger, Joel Domantay and Chris Reccardiexplore a sonic landscape that pulsates with the earthy rhythms of the primitive past and glistens with the electronic ambience of a utopian future, instantly transporting the listener from from lost exotic worlds through the far reaches of the cosmos.

5 Paraiso – Clouseaux
6 Search for Vulcan – Clouseaux
“Set bongos on stun, Mr. Spock” says writer Gregg Barr of the Houston Press. “A little bit lounge, a little bit exotica, a whole lot of noir, and they’re absolutely spectacular” says Koop Kooper of Cocktail Nation. “It’s great music to *&!% to ” says Jello Biafra. Clouseaux’s “Beyond Good and Evil” is possibly the most sophisiticated neo-exotica album of our time says Bjorn Werkmann of Ambient Exotica. If you didn’t catch them at Tiki Oasis 3, Tiki Farm’s Big ole Tiki Bash, or Vegas’ Mondo Atomic Frolic, don’t fret! Clouseaux is rocketing straight out of Space City back to Tiki Oasis 15 to leave you pleasantly refreshed and alive with pleasure.

man_or_astroman_lg

Man or Astroman

7 Spferic Waves – Man or Astroman
Man or Astro-man? have returned to Earth and unveiled their finest recorded work to date. Defcon 5…4…3…2…1 is here now with 􀂃 striking validity that the band is unquestionably as both tuneful and energetic as they ever have been. The record combines ever-familiar Astro audio tones and the well-established playing ferocity that the band is known for, but yet now, there is an undeniably evolution to the band that is both intuitive, logical and well crafted. Man or Astro-man? has arrived in the present (and future, of course) with imminent purpose. And of course, they still bring an over-the-top, sensory overloaded show, which has always gained them reputation for always being an undisputedly amazing band to see live.

8 Caped Crusader – Jason Lee and the R.I.P. Tides
Known for his live group, Jason Lee & the R.I.P.Tides, and his countless number of tutorial Surf Guitar You Tube videos. Jason Lee has spread the instructional bug all over the world to help keep the kulture of Surf Guitar Music alive.

9 Bama Lama, Bama Loo – The Little Richards
San Diego’s The Little Richards – fiercely and lovingly cover songs by Little Richard and feature El Vez on guitar and vocals!

The Ding Dong Devils

The Ding Dong Devils

10 Ku vs. The Space Monster – The Ding Dong Devils
11 Marooned On Space Atoll 3 – The Ding Dong Devils
The Ding Dong Devils began life as a fully formed tiki band. Borrowing heavily from all the various genres that were popular within the aloha culture such as surf, exotica, strip tease, rockabilly and bachelor pad swing, the band added their own sense of fun and adventure and started cranking out original ditties that celebrate all the various facets of island culture… as viewed by modern hipsters. The latest album, Space Fezcapade, is the group’s orbital spin on what music might be like on board a ship headed for Alpha Centauri with a rum soaked crew of crazy cats and kittens.

12 Let Yourself Go – The Outta Sites
The Outta Sites are an exciting new band in the style of the 1960’s British Invasion rock and roll featuring melodic harmonies, twangy guitar, groovy organ, and crazy dance moves all to a driving back beat. The Outta Sites have released two albums on vinyl and cd to wide acclaim with radio airplay across both Europe and the U.S. Their much talked about performances and success of their albums have generated numerous opportunities to take their high-energy show on the road and perform for large crowds at several festivals across the United States and Europe.

13 Dream In My Mind – The Rosalyns
The Rosalyns are an exciting, authentic homage to the girl garage sound of the ‘60s. This glamorously outfitted combo features members of the Loons, the Schitzophonics, the Gore Gore Girls, Gloomsday and the New Kinetics, and have been wowing audiences up and down the West Coast with their dance floor filling sounds. Their debut EP, Hide & Seek, scored rave reviews across the planet. These fabulous femme fatales can’t wait to sock their fuzzed-out go-go sounds to the denizens of the Tiki Oasis.

14 La Llorona avec claves – Phantom Surfers
The Phantom Surfers have been foisting off Instrumental “Music” since before the Big Bang and the invention of Pop Rocks. Originally formed in 1988 as a Hawkwind tribute band, the lads quickly realized that that Outer Space related songs paid way too much money, and quickly shifted to the far less popular “Surf” genre. The ensuing years showed the band fruitlessly chasing trends such as Slot Car music, Movie Theme Music, and X Rated comedy, as well as becoming acclaimed authors of a singularly well received and poor selling book on Rock Stardom.

15 Star Trek – Project: Pimento
San Francisco’s finest lounge-tenders mix up a passionate elixir of rhythmic suavity set to sound. Sultry female vocals are backed up by a tight jazz combo, including a smooth theremin that takes the mood from the early ‘60s to outer space. Fogged in velvet, hopped on hep, and buying this round.

16 Hot Tubes – Point Doom
Point Doom features three old timers who have been playing for longer than they care to admit. These ignominious poltroons have played in bands such as: The Sea Hunters, The Phantom Surfers, and get this, Sky Saxon and the Seeds! They have risen in the past several years to be the top surf act in Ventura County, playing at such prestigious venues as The Hong Kong Inn ( headlining OVER the Polynesian revue!!), and The Golden China Open Mic night.

17 Albufera Stomp – Els A Phonics
Mediterrani Beat Guitars! A-Phonics es una banda valenciana de surf formada en 2009 por exmiembros de grupos como CHEWBACCA’S, PILDORA X y ViBRANTS.

Comienzan a tocar en festivales como Surforama, Ubangi Stomp o Funtastic rememorando el repertorio de clásicos del surf como The Ventures, The Shadows, o The Astronauts. En 2010 son fichados por Sleazy Records y debutan con el ep vinilo “Mediterranean Beat Guitars” donde demuestran, en composiciones propias, el gusto por el surf clásico orientado hacia la vertiente sonora del mediterraneo.

18 Callhoun Surf -Millionaire Beach Bums
Four San Diego kids, ages 12-14, who started playing gigs together in 2013. Don’t let their ages fool you! They specialize in surf rock music… and know how to crank up the reverb to get people on their feet!! They have surf in their souls and love playing all your favorite tunes such as Wipeout, Mr. Moto, Miserlou, and Pipeline. They also shred some rock classics like Santana’s Black Magic Woman; and they have our own killer originals too!

TikiOasisphenomenauts

The Phenomenauts

19 Broken Robot Jerk – The Phenomenauts
Shortly after landing on the planet Earth, the galaxy roving Phenomenauts became famous for commando performances on the streets. They’d show up with a battery pack outside of a venue, punch out a few blistering tunes for the people in line and split before security showed up to drive them off. In 2002 they crashed the backstage barriers of Van’s Warped Tour to “steal” some stage time. They were officially invited to join Van’s in 2003, impressing fans with their energetic live show, a production that original robotic guitarist JoeBot 1.0’s Theramatic Helmerator, a wireless Theremin head set that created Sci-Fi sounds reminiscent of old Star Trek episodes and the Streamerator, manned by Professor Greg Arius, a device that blasts rolls of toilet paper out into the crowd.

20 Barbarella – Project Pimento
21 Jealous Astronaut – Phantom Surfers

22 Dig Thee Phantom 5ive – The Neptunas
It was a way, way back in the summer of ’94, down in the city of Long Beach, that the Neptunas debuted their sliced-n-diced version of Garage Rock and Surf Instrumental to the world. And, like the well-oiled plastic gears of a finely-crafted Ronco device, they julienne and puree whatever notions one has about girl bands, surf music, and rock ‘n’ roll in general.
