Aloha everyone, it is Monday morning here in Hawai’i and I wanted to share a little about the weekend with ManoaDNA.
Hopefully Alex will get to tell the story, but Friday was a raucous night down at Lulus. Â Alex, Mark, and Seann were on the scene as “AK & The Sunshine” hosting a fun-filled night of music in Waikiki. Â Unfortunately, I had a personal engagement I was attending to, but everyone said it was really fun! Â Hopefully Alex gets a great following, even during his solo work.
Saturday night, ManoaDNA was back together at Kani Ka Pila. Â It was a rainy night, and one of the few nights “Rainin'” didn’t work. Â Of course, our awesome fans stayed and were so supportive of us, even in the rain!
Finally, last night, we had a small performance at the Hawai’i Convention Center for the “Rainbow for Japan Kids.” Â Dad’s blog mentions this program a lot, and it is a great event that the gang from Studio Rim coordinates. Â Twenty-or-so kids from affected areas in Japan were flown in by JAL Airlines, and taken on cultural tours and excursions to learn about Hawai’i and get a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Â Last night’s concert was the final event on their trip and featured the kids playing “Sukiyaki” on ukuleles they made at the KoAloha factory earlier in the week. Â It was a great event for a great cause, and we were very blessed to be a part of it. Â Thank you to all the coordinators, the donators, and fellow musicians who made the night a very memorable one.
So now, a new work week starts, and I am excited to get things moving. Â I apologize for the lack of photos from the weekend, it is really difficult for me to remember to take my camera out for some reason. Â Behavioral change is badly needed!
Aloha for now, see you later this week!
