The latest Lowbrow Luau update on March 31 2021:


Sadly, the Lowbrow Luau will NOT happen on Memorial Day Weekend, another victim of the damn-penic.


For several years, Stellar Shows has been hosting Escape to Tiki Island, combining music, lifestyle vendors and cocktails with tiki music, merchants -and Charles Phoenix among other attractions.

Last year, Stellar planned the all-new Lowbrow Luau, a 3-day tiki weekender in Long Beach at the Golden Sails Hotel.

Due to a LOT of factors we are forced to postpone our 3-day weekender until Oct. 22-24, 2021.
We want to give you the best experience possible when we launch our Lowbrow Luau. We simply cannot guarantee a full house - or even a full staff - on Memorial Day weekend.
We must delay your gratification until Fall...

You can imagine how disappointed we are, as well as our hardworking committees, many of whom worked with us on the Escape to Tiki Island shows and at Don the Beachcomber.
We waited as long as we could, and simply must adjust our schedule again.
(and even October is subject to change - as new mgmt. takes over the Golden Sails Hotel.)

If you have already reserved rooms and wristbands through us, be assured we will maintain that list indefinitely., and will post you on any changes as we move forward.

We thank you for your enthusiasm and support!

Any questions, please call 714-809-6146.

At this point in corona time, the show remains scheduled - but it is up in the air.

However, you can make a room reservation or reserve tickets for $2 or $3 online, so you won't miss the show when it does happen.
