The Tikiyaki Orchestra
The Tikiyaki Orchestra

The Tikiyaki Orchestra is a musical experience unlike any other today. Utilizing a unique combination of sounds...smooth, mellow vibraphone, twanging, reverb-drenched surf guitar, pulsating theater organ, lilting Hawaiian steel guitar, bongos, congas, and an arsenal of exotic perucssion from around the world, all set against the sounds of the ocean and jungle (and lots of bird calls from enthusiastic audience members), The Tikiayki Orchestra transports the audience to a place and time when Cantonese food was "exotic cuisine" and people escaped the mundane with the aid of strong, sweet rum-based cocktails served in tiki mugs with little colorful umbrellas.

The Orchestra will be performing original material from their debut album "StereoExotique, and highly anticipated brand new, release "Swingin' Sounds for the Jungle Jetset" (due out in May 2009), as well as some Exotica classics, all served up with Style , Panache, Stellar musicianship and and good dose of tounge in cheek lounge/cheese banter (courtesy of Vibraphonist/MC Marty Lush).

Their sold out shows at KONA (formerly Sam's Seafood) in Huntington Beach, and performances at Hukilau 2008, The Mission Tiki Drive In, Tiki Farm and Bahooka have garnered them quite a large following in Southern California, and reputation for always delivering a great show and a damn good time.
