Hello all!!! I've been told that I should introduce myself, and it sounded like a good idea, so here I am.

I'm Will, bass player for the instro surf band The Luau Cinders. I got into tiki and surf music at around the same time, back in 2008. Not sure which led to which. We're fairly new on the scene, having just started a year & a half ago, but we're slowly getting out there. the family just moved into a new house, so I've been able to get my small mug and art collection out of storage & start to rekindle that interest. The liquor cabinet is placed and filled, and hopefully the bar will be soon to follow.

A-LOOOOOOOOOOOO-HHHHHHHHHHAAAAAAAAA!

YOU'RE IN KOKORU TERRITORY!

I know they can often be found at House of Fooong Lin, but they can better fill you in.

I have, in fact, made the acquaintance of a number of members of Kokoru at the esteemed and honorable House of Foong Lin. I even vaguely remember some of them, being as I had to drive home that evening so my consumption was, shall we say, necessarily limited.

Looking forward to spending some (more) quality mai tai-me with you! Hope you can make the Smuggler's Cove thing @ Smithsonian in August. In the meantime, we'll have to show you the various tiki spots in the District next time we can lure you down this way! :thumbsup:

Hey Will. Did you use to work at Tyler Mechanical, years ago? If so, I'm the IT guy that used to come out there. Brought in a bunch of Ohana/FOM stuff for you. Aloha...took you long enough to find us. :D

Holy crap!!! That was a few lifetimes ago. I've lurked off and on probably since then....I'm just finally in a place where I can actually try to be involved.

My band is playing in Frederick Saturday night. Link is in my signature.

ALOHahaha. Awesome. Yeah, I left the Tech Support company a few years ago (getting burned out there) and moved (totally) to a local gvt IT job on the Eastern Shore out in Kent County. Good to hear you are getting out there and in place to get involved. I assume you've met JJTiki as well as kai ahe. Being out here on the Eastern Shore is an island all to itself. Took some adjusting. Now our kids are old enough that we can safely head out for fun, but now they work with no driver's licenses so we have to be back in time to transport them home or I'd try to make it up to your show (the circle of life). Will check out your band's site. We plan on having the Kokoru's out this way in August when our furthest reaching member is in town. Consider this an invite. See you at the Smuggler's Cove thing in DC. Stick around here, get to know the folks and if you like what you see...by all means, consider walking the path.

Sounds good. I could use a trip across the bridge.
