Join me at the oldest, biggest, and grandest Tiki event in the world, Tiki Oasis, for a special Mai-Kai history presentation, and the West Coast premier of the book!
Don the Beachcomber: The Mai-Kai’s Father, will explore how Donn Beach took South Pacific and Caribbean inspiration and created the Tiki era, and how he inspired the Mai-Kai and his personal history allowed the Mai-Kai to exist as we know it today.
Besides the rare images, video, and audio interviews in the presentation, I will also have former Southeastern manager for Rums of Puerto Rico, Randy Avon as special guest to recount personal stories of the height of the mid-century Mai-Kai peak.
We will also be featuring a special hula performance by Nani Maka and MeduSirena. Nani Maka was the star of the classic tropical creature feature, Pagan Island.
This will be the West Coast premier of the book with a limited number available 6 weeks before the release date. Buy one and get it signed!
