I’m really not the hardest working man in show business, I’m afraid. I have so much fun just playing in my living room that I don’t feel a big push to get on stage. But since my mission is to spread the word about slack key and Hawaiian music, I really should be getting out and telling the story. Now the time has come to hit the road, because Ledward Kaapana and Mike Ka`awa have invited me to open on their spring tour.
All the details are in the Kaleponi Calendar link above, but here’s a rundown:
Thursday, May 10, Harlow’s in Sacramento, CA
Saturday, May 12, St. Joseph’s Cultural Center, Grass Valley, CA
Monday, May 14, Sierra Nevada Brewery, Chico, CA
Tuesday, May 15, Don Quixote’s, Felton, CA
Thursday, May 17, Club Fox, Redwood City, CA
After that week Mike goes home and we have a short break, then Ledward and I head to Oregon.
Saturday, June 2, John G. Shedd Institute for the Arts, Eugene, OR
Tuesday, June 5, The Alberta Rose Theater, Portland, OR
Mike returns from O`ahu for dates in Washington.
Wednesday, June 6 and
Thursday, June 7, Seattle’s Triple Door, where Ledward and Mike recorded their magnificent Force of Nature live CD.
Friday, June 8, The Upstage Restaurant, Port Townsend, WA
If you’re in any of these neighborhoods I hope you’ll join us for an evening of slack key and Hawaiian music.
