The 24th annual Slack Key Guitar Festival will be held at Kapiolani Park
Bandstand on August 20th, from 11am to 6pm. If you are unable to make it
to the park, listen and watch it LIVE on the web!

That's right, LavaNet will be streaming the festival to viewers around
the world for free. Our very own Pali Ka'aihue will be performing at
2:50pm! Come see the best of Hawaii's Slack Key Masters perform, and if
you can't make it, stop by this URL to watch:

Bravo to lava.net for offering this!

And didja know? Pali Ka`aihue is the brilliant young owner/President of lava.net -- AND frontman of the musical group, Pali.

Reminder -- this happens _this_ Sunday.

From today's Honolulu Advertiser:
Can't make it to the 24th Annual Slack Key Guitar Festival in Kapi'olani Park this weekend? Here's an alternative: LavaNet will Webcast this celebration of Hawaiian music, from 12:50 p.m. to 5:35 p.m. Sunday at www.lava.net or www.taylor guitars.com. "Being able to share the beautiful sounds of Ki Ho'alu with the rest of the world, streamed for the first time on the Internet, is something we're very proud and honored to be a part of," LavaNet president and owner Pali Ka'aihue said, in a release.

Watched most of it from my laptop on my patio Sunday evening (4pm-to 9pm). Audio was quite good..video was average. Nice vibe. We are lucky that Lava and Taylor did this. My wife and I kept saying commercial free show, a network, even cable network would never bothered. We are watching history. Live streaming shows over the internet. This is the future. Specialty shows. I wonder how many hits Lava and Taylor had?

I know Taylor Guitars captured it and they'll most likely host selections from each artist on their site. I'm going to check what we have, footage wise.

Milton Lau (coordinator) did record the whole thing and will be releasing a DVD at some point.

Pali,
Thanks for including John Keawe in your set. At first the video quality was hard to distinguish everyone on stage -- but then I recognized that white beard. Mahalo Nui Loa for the chance to enjoy ki ho'alu in the Pennsylvania woods (been helping the National Guard for work). Good thing the hotel had free high speed internet!

Mika ele,

I'll pass on your thanks to everyone involved, you're very, very welcome and I'm glad it worked out for you. I know a few folks had problems but they attributed it to their computers. We had one guy at Kapi`olani Park watching from his Blackberry, and another via her smart phone.

John is such an awesome, awesome guy... probably the most humble guy you'll ever meet. I'm so glad he could come over for the festival.. I also wanted to help him plug his new CD, Beautiful Hula Dancer... which of course, can be found on www.mele.com <g>

Pali,

Thanks for dropping in and for streaming the slack key festival. It was so much fun watching from wherever we all are in the world. Looking forward to any Taylor archives and to watching next year.

Ps. We met briefly last year at the Kaua'i slack fest.

Does anyone know if there is somewhere that I can still see the festival? Danny Carvalho's "Hawaiian Soul" just blew me away. I was recording it and, naturally (Thanks a lot, Murphy), the tape ran out in the middle of it. I bought his CD which has it but it's not the same.

Mahalo nui for any help.
