Aloha, everyone!  Nick & I are off to Japan today get a jump start on our Golden Week tour with HTJ.  We’re going up early because we plan to go up to Sendai and Miyagi prefecture with some of the HTJ staff to visit the evacuation shelters and try to bring some aloha from Hawai’i to cheer them up.  Alex is finishing up his final classes at UH so he and Mark will be coming up on Thursday …

Yesterday we performed at the “Aloha Concert for Hawai’i & Japan” at the Japanese Cultural Center … a great event with great food & entertainment for all.  Some of the other featured entertainers besides ManoaDNA were Brother Noland, Paul Shimomoto, Pali, Robert Cazimero, and Satomi & Shinya Yarimizo.

I’ll be keeping you guys posted while we’re on our trip, so stay tuned ….

Aloha, “D”
