These Guys Are The Real Thing
J. D Suggs | Atlanta, Georgia United States | 02/03/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is as good a surf band as there ever was, right here in our midst. The musicianship is impeccable, and they are charismatic performers with a genuine love and respect for the genre. They bring an original touch and a lot of wit to their music without any sign of the ever-present Gen-X smirk. In this show they have the guts to play a lot of dark and mid-tempo stuff like "Endless Sleep", which is genuinely scary (check it out!). They bring an original touch to the covers- "Dick Tracy" is a masterpiece- and the original stuff is every bit as good. The cheerful "Surfin' Tragedy" is a huge favorite with me.

Guys, if you're still out there- give us another one!"
Swingin' Surf Music....90s style!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Los Angeles based Blue Hawaiians melt your worries away with soothing sounds of 90s Exotica. Like those beofre them, legends like Dick Dale and Martin Denny, the Blue Hawaiians give the term "live" great justice. The bass and vocals by Mark Fontana, mixed together with Tom Maxwell (Drums), Bron Tieman (Guitar/Lap Steel), and Mark Sproull (Guitar) are so cool and smooth like the cocktail that is their name. Listening to them on this CD is one thing, but if you are in LA for the weekend, the hip place to go is the Lava Lounge....part Dunes hotel, part Don the Beachcomber. This is must for any fan of surf music, space age bachelor pad music, or just something to take away some of the pressure of stress. Their play list is a great mix of classics like Apache, Tom Waits' Jockey Full of Bourbon,Jack the Ripper. Mixed in are originals from their new album, SWAY. Grab yourself a cocktail and dig on the beat that is the Blue Hawaiians."
Next best thing to seeing this band live

"If you love surf-noir-lounge music, this is a great live album. Close your eyes and you're there. They know their stuff. Always brings a smile to my face. Great mix of mood."
