ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Wiki Waki Woo is pleased to announce that we are Nominees for the Hawaii Music Awards, People's Choice, in 2002! Ceremonies take place April 6, 2003. Thanks for listening to us on Internet Radio Hawaii!

"Listen to us live on Internet Radio Station IRH Hawaii www.hotspotshawaii.com/irhpages/irhlive.html"
This musical group recreates....with humor and love....the Hawaii of the thirties and the forties, when it was every mainlander's dream to sail to Hawaii, sit under a palm tree in the perpetual moonlight, be serenaded by a handsome Hawaiian (with no questions about his real ethnic background) whild a lovely hula maiden admonished him to 'Keep your eyes on the hands.' She would of course, be wearing a grass or cellophane skirt, and nobody cared if her costume, or the dance, was authentic or not. It was romantic! It was fun! Corn? Of course. But authentic assence of an era corn."

Wiki Waki Woo's founding members have been performing professionally in Hawaii since 1982. From 1985-1990, P.J. Galarneau filled in on Bass, until Bud relocated to Oahu from Kaua'i, where the band originated. Their music is enjoyed by tourists and kamaaina's alike; live, recorded, and over the television and radio airwaves.

Fun, fun fun!
Fun music, played by some fine musicians who are obviously having a really good time. You will too!

CD Baby


Like a shuffley, quirky Prairie Home Companion radio show, this album, in all the best ways, is endearingly dorky, snappy, light and vintage like. With strung-out Steel Guitar, novelty Hawaiian, Originals, vintage Tin Pan Alley, and New Vaudville, this little island gem thoroughly creates the Hawaii of the thirties and the forties, before the days of plastic sea shells and cellophane leis. Don't miss out on this spiked coconut cocktail.

Mary Ellen Stephens

Heard the songs on IRH live. Had to have it.
I kept hearing the cuts on IRH and loved the nostalgic uke tunes. This CD is a lot of fun and I've almost worn it out already. You've made a fan out of me!

Ear champange! Mind wine! Island Joy juice!
Ear champange!! Mind wine! Island Joy juice! What can I say, it's funny, wild and completely insane in a Hawaiian sort of way. I love Wiki Waki Woo's Souvenirs! I want more... more... more I tell you!!

Deborah Nalani

AWESOME!
Looked for years for a specific song my father used to sing to us that was done by Hilo Hattie. The orignal version is out of print, but couldn't even find a remake till I came across this CD. What a find! I purchased copies for my siblings, also! We all love it! It is well done and an all around entertaining CD!

A "FUN-TASTIC" Listen!!!!!!
Couldn't stop smiling from the moment I heard the first song on the wonderful Wiki Waki Woo Souvenirs CD to its last, as the amusing sounds took me back to a time when the living was definitely easier and people more loving! Yet, even in this day and age, my 27 year old daughter, Becky, found the Souvenir song renditions as enjoyable and entertaining as I did, especially the one entitled - you guessed it - BECKY! :-)

Johnny Mindlin

Lovely lovely lovely lovely lovely lovely lovely
An enchanting collection of some of the funniest Hawaiian tunes you're ever likely to hear. It's given us a new euphomism: "Yaaka Hula Hicky Dula, baby?" to which the answer must be "Yeah, why not" followed by schmoozing!
GREAT!
