My wife and I made a spontaneous trip to Maui last weekend to attend the Taro Festival. It was a special weekend full of ʻono food, music, and talking story! Mahalo nui to Uncle Kevin, Uncle Sheldon, Uncle Norman and Duke for all the hospitality and late night kanikapila. It was a privilege to join the Waiheʻe jammers for such a fun time.
Great evening at Roy’s New York featuring a special 5-course dinner by Chef Roy Yamaguchi with wine pairings by Kevin Zraly. We enjoyed playing music during the evening of great food, drink, and friends. The food was truly ʻono (delicious)! Thank you to Chef Roy, Carla Randau, and everyone at the New York restaurant!

My first time to Fire Island, New York was quite the adventure. It was great fun playing Hawaiian slack key guitar with my brother for the three hula dancers at the cocktail party. DECADE: 10 Years Of The Fire Island Dance Festival featured unbelievably talented dancers, and we enjoyed watching so many renown dance companies. Thanks to DRA for taking such great care of us and congrats on a successful event. What a gathering of talent and all for a charitable cause.
