"Throwback to Giveback" was the fundraiser held at The Republik last night where the music community gave back to some in the musician community on hard times; two of the recipients were in house last night; Keevan Kalauli and Steven Hall were in house while John Sexton of Simplicity continues to recover from medical issues. GREAT entertainment and LOTS of fellow musicians in house...it was fun and there will be more; we'll have more details at hawaiinewsnow.com
One of the entertainers was Josh Tatofi, son of Tivaini who is an original member of Kapena. His cousin Dustin Park's dad is Timoni, original member of Kapena; both playing at the fundraiser last night. Wouldn't it be wonderful if Kelly Boy Delima's son Kapena played with them too? Well, it's going to happen at the "Revive the Live" concert at the Waikiki Shell on September 26, 2015
Amy Hanaialii Gilliom is returning to her musical theatre roots...performing as Eva Peron in 'Evita.' This clip from rehearsals was posted on Facebook by Dylan Bode as the most beautiful moment of the day. The show is slated to run August 21-30 at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center's Castle Theater.
