    So any hawaii TBers gigging next week or can you recommend anywhere to go? I'll be on Oahu from the 15th to the 24th for a conference, and may also get lasik done at panpacificlaser since it isn't available here on Guam. But I want to check out some live acts when I'm there, can anyone recommend some places or gigs? I'm open to any types of music. I haven't lived there since 98 so I'm out of the loop. thanks - Andy
     
  2. Go see Auntie Genoa Keawe at the Marriott restaurant, thursdays at sunset; Led Ka'apana at Aloha Tower, tuesdays, I think. Check for Benny Chong and Byron Yasui; and Jerry Santos and Olomana. Everything starts at sunset; check local papers for performers and recommendations. Also there's concerts each night (sunset again) on Kuhio beach. Have a great time -- it's not hard.

    Thanks for the tips jumbosilverette.
    I just found this too - http://www.honolulujazzscene.net/
    Looks like a lot happening these days.
    I can't believe I missed Tower Of Power by a week, the lead player Mike Bogart was stationed with me in the Navy Band for years and is a good friend, still haven't heard them with him in the band.
     
  4. Good source, Andy. Seeing TOP in Oahu would've been fun.
