“How many instruments do you need?” the flight attendant asked as we boarded the plane with a guitar, the Ohana bass and two ukuleles. The honest answer was more then we can cary on, as we had an additional re-enterant uke checked as baggage. And of course my shakers. If I had hands free I might have snapped a shot of us filling the overhead bin. But honestly, beats schlepping a cello or two!
The festival was fabulous. Smooth organization, happy workshops, collaborations with friends, and a great venue with great sound and a great crew. Makes life mighty easy and sweet.
and that theatre…
Daniel and the Ohana bass were on stage most of the night, doing songs in our set, including “Play That Funky Music, White Boy” ( he would be the boy) and Gerald Ross played it for a few of our songs. Daniel brought it back out for a bunch of songs in the second set with Craig Chee and Sarah Maisel. The next night Jason Arimoto played the fretless version for Daniel Ho.
It’s a sweet axe, and Daniel’s made a video to tell you all about it- click HERE for his review.
