A lot of talented people were involved in making Frankie's Tiki Room such a unique combination of style and substance.  Tiki bar designer Bamboo Ben summed it up best when he said, "Some jobs are for the money, and some jobs are from the heart.  I built Frankie's from the heart."

 

 

 

 

 

 

CRAZY AL EVANS - If ever a man matched his moniker, it's Crazy Al.  A wicked cool talent with an obsession for detail, his work is an intense combination of the traditional and the bizarre.  He also carves tikis on stage to the beat as frontman for the band Ape.  tikimania.com

TIKI BOSKO - A respected artist whose tikis, wall hangings and mugs are coveted by collectors around the world.  A master carver, tiki historian and lord overseer of his own private tiki oasis, Bosko is among the elite of his profession.  tikibosko.com

LEROY SCHMALTZ - Generally regarded as the godfather of all tiki carvers, Leroy has been sculpting wooden idols nonstop since the 50s.  He is co-owner of Oceanic Arts, the world's leading supplier of tropical decor.  oceanicarts.net

TITIKI RAY - A master of the chainsaw and chisel, Tiki Ray carves in traditional island style.  He is famous for displaying his palm wood carvings beside classic pin-up girls.  tikiray.com
