The Tiki Collective
$25 Advance / $30 Door

The Tiki Collective are a large ensemble of friends who perform jazz, pop and exotica music. Their debut CD “MUSE” is released on Vesuvius Music. The collective was conceived by Jaymz Bee and Music Director, Eric St-Laurent in 2016.  Bee has been a fan of exotica and Lounge music for years and felt the time was right to present a nuevo-retro sounding ensemble that included elements of surf, jazz and pop with a nod to Tiki Culture. The instrumentalists bring decades of experience and share a love of world music while the singers bring a fresh approach to a diverse array of material. This ensemble steers clear of the type of cultural appropriation that appeared in exotica recordings of the fifties, relative to Polynesian and South Pacific island cultures. Instead, the collective  focuses on using similar instrumentation to those of early exotica records, with thoughtful arrangements that blend Eastern, Western, and local influences.
