Hey - I had just read about this woman, and have been thinking about putting together a "Hawaiian jazz" show - your link couldn't have come at a better time. Mahalo!

Just a heads up that I will be traveling to the shores of Long Island, so we'll have repeat show for August 30 and Sept. 6. Any specific shows you'd like to request? (Kinda trick question, since ALL the shows are archived for your re-listening pleasure 24/7!)

We'll be back live for the Sept 13 show. Looking forward to playing more beautiful music for you then!
