Cut Down On The High Cost Of Entertaining!

This symposium hosted by Kelly Patterson from “Velveteen Lounge Kitsch-en” gives you tips and tricks on how to entertain with flair on the cheap!

Most importantly, we will discuss the intricacies of balance, temperature, and water content as they pertain to the successful execution of a frosty beverage.

The band rose to mid-level fame during the mid 1960s and were part of the British Invasion of the U.S. The group released a string of records, most of which were considered commercial failures. The band experienced a revival in the early 1970s when their fifth single “Gilligans Island” charted in the top 100

ABOUT TIKI OASIS
Tiki Oasis’ “Beat-Tiki” weekender offers a unique pairing of the Beatnik and Tiki ethos. Like the Beat Generation of legend and lore, today’s Tiki aficionados are drawn to primitivism and thirst to reconnect with the primal past, celebrating it in a modern context. Spend a carefree weekend in an urban oasis amidst fellow barefoot bohemians, reveling in the kind of art, music, literature and mixology that is sure to flip your lid!

In the spirit of Beat literati, The Beat Museum (San Francisco) will host a pop-up bookstore as well as an expanded booksigning event. There will be several scheduled and spontaneous poetry readings by well-known and unknown authors and poets. And we have increased the number of educational symposiums: Learn about the proto-hippie, flute-playing poet, composer, naturalist, and urban explorer Eden Ahbez with researcher/author Brian Chidester; The heart of the Venice Beach Beatnik scene is examined by author Domenic Priore; Beat era artist, original Disney Imagineer, and creator of the Tiki Room Tikis, Rolly Crump, shares his thoughts; and many more.

Last year’s Tiki Oasis drew 3000 attendees and included three hotels, including the sold-out eight story Crowne Plaza where most of the event takes place.

Brad “Tiki Shark” Parker
“Red Tiki Lounge”

Brad Parker paints “Low Brow Art” about Modern Tiki Culture. He does so from the most remote land mass in the world: the Big Island of Hawaii. “When you live on an active volcano, you learn to make sacrifices.” The artist doesn’t mean throwing virgins into the volcano, but rather his move from the fast lane of Hollywood to the slower pace of the small seaside town of Kailua-Kona.

In doing so, Brad quickly became the king of Polynesian Pop Art, and his work is routinely selected by Hawaiian officials to represent Tiki culture to the world. His art is a staple in the surf world, where he’s partnered with Body Glove, and he’s had sell-out exhibitions in Los Angeles, Honolulu, and Dubai.

Parker’s “Red Tiki Lounge” combines the paint stroke of old Flemish masters with counter culture subject matter from a childhood of adoring comic books, cartoons, and Universal monster movies. This show features skate decks, beach towels, pencil sketches and paintings, and we’ll be celebrating July 4th with BBQ and a live band. Brad will be present at his opening reception to sign cards, calendars and prints.

Brad Parker on his involvement in the “Keiki Surf for the Earth Event in Hawaii

During this Keiki Surf for the Earth (beach clean up and surf contest for kids under 14) “Save the “Pine Trees” surf beach spot for puvblic use and not resort development” event I got to meet a really nice old timer…. kind of a wise, respected, Hawaiian elder. Much to my surprise, we got into a a deep metaphysical dialog and discussion about my Tiki-Art, and why I had changed my life and was here, living on the active volcano called the Big Island, and why I was painting such things as “Tikis”. His name is Angel Pilago, he was the Councilman in the Big Island’s North Kona’s District 8 till he retired. Now, he acts in an unofficial, advisory role to such folks as Big Island surfer and Mayor Billy Kenoi and Hawaii Governor Neil Ambercrombie.

It was a real moment for me to hear years Hawaiian culture wisely expounded to me profoundly, thoughtful, and sincerely from this small, wizened old Hawaiian wizard, and why the island was important, – important to me, – and to me making da’ “Tiki-Art”! “Hmmmm! Yes…. “Tiki-Art” you shall be painting, yes. Yes.”

Lampshades1The Lampshades will return to Tiki Oasis in 2014.

Check them out on “Disney’s Wizards of Waverly Place,”  “NASA Safety Day, Joe’s Pub,”  and “Bentzen Ball, US Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen.”
