Dear FOM,
I have enjoyed friends and events connected to FOM for years. Surf, lounge and exotica music are woven deeply into my life. As much as I enjoy a perfect Mai Tai, it cannot compare to the joy of a Mai Tai with friends. More please. With respect and good feelings, I ask to become a member of FOM.
Thanks,
Dano Clam

Thanks JonTiki!
I live in Connecticut and pay the bills as an engineer. I play guitar and administrator for the surf rock band, The Clams and for the dark lounge band, Black Lodge Quartet. I make my brother drive me around to all the tiki bars when I visit him in Oakland CA. I built a portable tiki bar years ago, and get asked back to many parties. My super power is Hi-Fi. My super vulnerability is software. I have been to 8 Ohanas and hosted room crawls for 5. I can make sushi very quickly. This awesome lifestyle is courtesy of the support of Mrs. Clam.
Gracias,
El Dano

An engineer with Hi Fi superpowers is what is needed.

Have you ever aligned the IF section on a solid state AM automotive receiver? Asking for a friend...

No - AM is not Hi-Fi. (I designed the electronics for a few high end amplifiers years ago)

Aloha, Dano! You forgot to mention in your intro that a couple Ohanas back, when Jimmy Psycho was involved in a bizarre dog bite incident and had to cancel at the last minute, you snagged a couple revelers off the pool deck and formed "The Surf Responders." With less than 24-hours notice, the quickly-conjured band played a great set of surf tunes poolside to kick off the main event. A great bit of Ohana lore!

Thanks again for that - and welcome to The Port!

Thanks for the welcome Jet! Yes - such a great privilege to step in and such great fun to play. Big thanks to Henry, Phred, you and instigator Rosado for help making it all happen.
