As a kid growing up in Hawai`i, I’ll never forget the times my grandfather would take us to Sam Choy’s Breakfast, Lunch and Crab on Nimitz Highway for those special family celebrations. Uncle Sam was proclaimed “Hawaii’s Culinary Ambassador,” is commonly referred to as the “Godfather of Poke,” and is a founding contributor to “Pacific rim cuisine.” It doesn’t get much better than being asked by Uncle Sam to perform at one of his intimate dinner parties and getting to hang with Seahawks star Michael Bennett and his family!
Tacoma came out strong on a Saturday night with the sold-out Jazzbones packed to the gills for the show with the one and only J Boog. Nothing but shakas and lots of aloha! Mahalo to da808music for bringing us down! Chee!!!
Nothing but sweet love in the sun at Bumbershoot. We assembled our largest band to date (including two dance crews) for an all-out music and dance extravaganza on the Fisher Green stage that had the best audience ever screaming “ALOHA” at us with their shakas raised up to the sky. Epic way to close out the summer! Good thing our braddah Jordan Nicholson was there to capture the vibes!
I wanted to go barefoot (you know, for the feeling) but the stage was so damn hot I had to keep my slippers on for the whole set.
All eyes were on the lovely ladies of THE CRUW during Superhero. Just looking at them I felt hot. All that black leather.
Big mahalos to Zebra Club for the super nice threads, especially the 10 Deep baseball tee. Gotta rock this one next time we play in Hawai`i.
OTIENO TERRY is the future of music, period. Just a giant well full of soul. The set went up into ultra high gear when he joined us for the last few songs, especially on First Avenue.
One day soon the shaka will be the universal sign of peace and love.
Extra large shout out to the biggest and baddest crew to date! Gonna need a tour bus to take this show on the road! We go, bumbai!
