Tikiyaki Orchestra 10th Anniversary Party

The Tikiyaki Orchestra has been wowing audiences since 2008 with their own brand of Exotic Lounge music and unique, charismatic showmanship.

Not simply content to replicate the sound of classic Exotica such as Martin Denny and Arthur Lyman, Tikiyaki, a 6-piece orchestra led by main composer Jim Bacchi, pulls many different musical food groups into the mix....Bachelor Pad Lounge, Crime Jazz, Surf, Spaghetti Western, Latin and Hawaiian music, to broaden the musical spectrum of what is known today as “Exotica”.

Their 4 albums.... “StereoExotique” , “Swingin’’ Sounds for the Jungle Jetset”, "Aloha, Baby !" and "Idol Worship and other Primitive Pleasures" prove that, Exotica is not just background music for the swingin’ tikiphile, but you can actually hum along, due to catchy, concise and well crafted songwriting, something that was not always necessarily a main component of the original Exotica sound.

The band has headlined many of the major Tiki Festivals in the US, including Tiki Oasis and Hukilau, always bringing with them an enthusiastic audience and top-notch showmanship. Their hometown sellout shows at venues like Don The Beachcomber are always a major event in Southern California's Tiki scene, and the records are celebrated internationally with a fanbase that goes from Spain to Tazmania !
