ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"I can think of no finer investment for your cabaret dollar.... Great vocals, great harmonies, great arrangements.
STU HAMSTRA Cabaret Hotline Online

Following another SRO tour of South America (Orlando mostly), the Pink Boys come home to New York, bringing with them a trunk load of CDs based on their 2006 Back Stage Bistro Award Winning evening of Hawaiian-inspired Hularity. As John Hoglund wrote in Back Stage (and we quote): “The Fabulous Pink Flamingos says it all!” (He also described the boys as “The Kingston Trio on acid” — but we digress.) So, dust off your coconuts, grab your tiki, and get ready to shake your hula hips! Leis for Everybody!

"I'm going to suggest that nothing as potentially exciting in the three-men-singing category has come along since Gotham threatened to go national a few decades back.... They don't make a false move or sing a wrong note throughout the pleasantly daffy show."
DAVID FINKLE Back Stage Bistro Bits

Since making their New York debut in 2004’s “Last Call at the XMAS Lounge,” The Fabulous Pink Flamingos have garnered unanimous praise for their shows, which blend nostalgia, humor, and incredible three-part harmony. In 2006 they were awarded the Back Stage Bistro Award for Outstanding Vocal Group, as well as being nominated for a Night Life Award.

"The show is fizzy, fun and the first I've seen in a long, long time which didn't have too many ballads."
CHARLES BLOOM Composer/Lyricist

"One might easily conceive of them entertaining at some first class resort hotel not far from Wakiki Beach.... The personable young'uns...smoothly manage their close harmony with the precision of a male reincarnation of the Andrews Sisters, adding scripted gags with the campy quality of a '20s vaudeville act."
PETER LEAVY Cabaret Scenes

Aloh-HA!
With a broad wink toward their material and seemingly boundless energy, what a happy and quirky change of pace it is to listen to the vocal threesome The Fabulous Pink Flamingos. Songs from the Lu'au Lounge is the debut album of this Bistro Award-winning group that has played venues including The Metropolitan Room in Manhattan. Like the theatre's fictional group Forever Plaid, The Fabulous Pink Flamingos present themselves as forever glad and cheery, poking fun at the corny excesses of harmony vocal groups while at the same time being the very model of the best aspects of the blend. They sound great: vibrant, soaring and sunny. The boys are joys whether playing it sort of straight with Hawaiian pop ditties, playing up a dim and clueless attitude or playing things for laughs with a wacky juxtaposition of material and approach (try the '90s bubble gum hit by boy brother group Hanson, "Mmm Bop" on for size).

The party gets started with a powerful Hawaiian punch on "Hey Baby! (Shake Those Hula Hips)" and there are more goofy novelty numbers done with exuberant brio, like "Princess Poo-Poo Has Plenty Pa-Pa-Ya." It's deliciously silliness but they don't skimp on the musicality. The voices, separately and in harmony, are clear and refreshing and tangy. They seem to have energy to burn. Their four-man band led by David Snyder matches the singers for energy and flair, and of course there's a ukulele. The spoofing and goofing would become tired if Lee Cavellier, Ron DeStefano and Jared Vesely weren't such able singers with harmonies that just ring in such a sparkling way.

This is a great party album, but maybe not one most people will have in constant rotation. The spoken commentary and sparring interplay can be forced and a bit tedious but sort of fits in with the daffy doings, and some is necessary for establishing the attitudes and personality. The Fabulous Pink Flamingos' act, conceived, written and directed by Russell Taylor, puts the "Ha!" in "aloha."

Aimee Lee


I have had the pleasure of seeing The Fabulous Pink Flamingos live several times, each performance being immensely enjoyable. Though different from watching the show live, "Songs form the Lu'au Lounge" is an equally enjoyable listen. From the upbeat opening song, to the funny and clever "bonus track," the whole album covers traditional Hawaiian songs, pop songs, and even a bit of Broadway in tight harmonies and beautifully sung melodies. The songs are interspersed by brief introductions by the Flamingos, which illustrate the sometimes warm, sometimes teasing, but always endearing relationship between the three, and gives the album a little taste of the live show. Lee Cavellier, Ron DeStefano, and Jaron Vesely do a great job on this vocally demanding and diverse album. Overall, "Songs from the Lu'au Lounge" is a great album, and one that will brighten up any CD collection or playlist.
