Hey Maggie! I just got home from a party where I was invited to play bass for Pekelo Day and his Halau. When Pekelo saw my bass, he said; "Oh, I know several people who play that kind of bass". It took me a few minutes, then I figured out who he was talking about!

Aloha,

Eh, Kona Bob! We met bout tree times: 2005, 2006, and 2008 (heck, I makule; forget when and where). You wen show me and wen let me futz with your "stick-bass". Because Retro and Guave bass players (I futz with Po Mahina baritone ukulele and slack-key guitar), and they curious bout your stick, why not ship one (da guys can pay da freight) to dem 2 guys fo try-em & comment!?!

Common sense: they goin show em off and play em on stage; den you get sales!?!

I just finished a dozen new koa Walkingbasses, and I am going to be bringing some of them to California in October. I will have them with me at Cerritos, ( http://www.ukulelefestival.org/ ) on October 4th. I will be backing up Dominator. Then my wife and I are going up to the Wine Country Uke Fest ( http://www.winecountryukefest.com ) with the basses I have left. Looking forward to playing with Robyn Mahealani and Mark Nelson.
I hope I get a chance to meet some of you from TaroPatch!

Wish I had the time to continue the trip on up into Oregon and Washington... maybe next year.
Aloha,

Aloha Konabob!

Yup, Pekelo told me he jammed with you! Small world. You can't imagine how many places my Walkingstick bass has been in the past year! It's been a blast playing it and a main staple in our Hawaiian music community for so many events. Mahalo for opening up the door for me with this fabulous instrument. I am loving it!

Hope you come to Oregon one of these days, ok?

Aloha,
Maggie
