We just got tickets for the Masters of Slack Key show on April 03. Uncle George Kahumoku, Sonny Lim, and Jeff Peterson. I'm going with my neighbor and we got the last two front-row seats just left of center stage. Yay! Off to a weekly bluegrass jam tonight, but then all my playing will be ki ho'alu until the show. Gotta get in the spirit....

I'll try. With front-row seats, we should be able to get some decent shots. I am so stoked being able to see these guys again. I have seen Uncle George in concert before and met him, and also studied with Jeff and Sonny at Aloha Music Camp in the past.

I deliberately didn't post anything lately to avoid jinxing the show. (Last time with the Keola Beamer concert, we both got da 'Rona that week and had to miss). It went really well last night - great music and much aloha from the stage. The crowd was really into it, with three hula dancers coming from the audience up on stage to dance a few with "the band".

George, Sonny, and Jeff each did a solo set followed by a combined kani together after intermission. They graciously hung back after the show to sign CD's and pose for numerous pictures. I was in the front row, and afterward Uncle George mentioned that he saw me singing along with most of the songs and gave a huge smile.

This morning I am really jonesing bad for Aloha Camp, which actually started yesterday. (I could not make it but my wife is there having twice the fun for both of us).

Yup. Alice got home tired but smiling. And Duke (her cat) was really happy to see her again. It's not the same service with reduced "staff". I'm OK as a bringer of food and for affection in a pinch, but SHE is his sweet baboo.

She is off again for another flute function back east in about three weeks. This time it will only be four days, not eleven. We'll probably survive.....
