These Tuesday posts are getting later and later yeah? Before you know it, da buggah goin' run into our Where In Hawaii Wednesday post. Oh well, better late than never ah?
So I guess it's obvious that I nevah watched Hawaii Five-0 live last night - hence the lack of a Five-0 post - but feel free to use the comment area below to chat up about the show with your fellow peeps anyway. I heard rap singer Nas made an appearance. Hah?
This weekend, I attended two events that had some killah live music and I wanted to post some videos I took to showcase the local talent we have here in Hawaii.
The first one is of a rock band called Elephant (who performs every Saturday from 9pm-2am at the Irish Rose Saloon in Waikiki). Lead man Kevin Jones is a talented DJ for Star 101.9FM, a better singer/rock star, and an even better friend. Check out Elephant performing a cover of Prince's "When Doves Cry" below.

The second band is called Heart & Soul, comprising of two talented ukulele players: Chris Salvador and my buddy Jody Kamisato. I recently featured Jody (and other fellow Kaiser High grads) in my November AroundHawaii article: "Cougar Pride - Three Kaiser High Grads Making a Difference"). Jody is the owner and head instructor at Ukulele Hale, and Chris is a young, but talented player with sick vocal skills. Below is a short clip of them covering Pure Heart's "How Can I Get Over?" at their recent CD Release Celebration Party at Gordon Biersch at the Aloha Tower Marketplace.

Here's a little bonus cut from one of my favorite Youtube singers, an obvious ode to John Tyner's experience with the TSA. OMG Hilarious!
