Hey everyone! Happy holidays! Since we are now in the holiday season, I want to wish everyone a MERRY CHRISTMAS! and HAPPY NEW YEAR!! Hopefully you are all healthy and happy and enjoying the holidays with people you love!
This was a busy week for myself and ManoaDNA as we kicked off the month of December with an action-packed week! Here’s a little recap for all of you who missed it live!
First, Friday was a busy day for me as I had a session of filming for the HI*Sessions show. We were honored to have two REALLY good musical acts, Mango Season and Ledward Ka’apana. Ledward is, of course, a slack-key master/falsetto singer/one of Hawai’i’s living treasures, and Mango Season is a super talented Hawaiian-Jazz-Fusion band. Both did really well, and we look forward to the result of the day!
Then it was off to Kaua’i for our friend Kenji’s wedding to Claire. It was a very humble gesture to invite us and bring us over to Kaua’i and we hope we were worth it!
As the week went on, we had a busy ManoaDNA Tuesday. Before heading into the studio to help Pops Okami of KoAloha record a song, we stopped by Cox Radio to pre-record a show for the holiday season. During the Christmas break, they pre-record broadcast shows so that the real DJs have time off. As DJ Aaron recorded us, we tried our best to imitate the real DJs, Billy V & Bruddah Wade, but were probably WAY OFF! Stay tuned to our Twitter & Facebook feeds for the date of the broadcast.
Finally, we close with a picture from our gig at Hyatt last night. It was a voggy day, so we really struggled with singing, but the vog gave us a spectacular sunset in Waikiki. Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram had a lot of similar pictures, so I apologize for the duplicity!
Have a good second week of December! It is another busy week for ManoaDNA, so I will try to recap it again next week!
