Hey gang, I'm happy to announce that I have been invited to join a very cool band.

ROxOitca!!

The music is all original and combines exotic gypsy blues and funk.
The band has been together for a little over a year and is now expanding to include two new singers... including me.

Yay!! \(^o^)/

The show this month will be at a venue very much like Wards Rafters, but now at a house in Kailua.
You can bring your own food and drink .
This is the first monthly "Windward Rafters Concert" that will be at 589 Lana Street.

Please be a bit early to get a cool seat .

ROxOtica is...
Jerome James: Drums
Lesley Kline: Wah Fiddle
Tommy Osuna: Guitar and Vocals
Bob Hernandez: Bass
Brenda Layne: Vocals
Brian von Ahsen: Vocals

I'm very excited and honored to be invited into this group of creative and talented musical artists. I am so looking forward to the show. Please come and enjoy the show. Also, stay tuned to for more coolness to come with...

ROxOtica!!

I was at a cool party last night and some friends were asking me about my blog because they never saw any of my FB posts about it so I'm reposting this and I'll tag the friends I spoke with last night about it.

In other news...

I'm happy to say that I've consistently kept up with my commitment to post something on the blog every day. As I mentioned in this original post (that I'm sharing again here) It's often stories of memoir but also may be on other topics from time to time.

Hope you enjoy it and... Have a beautiful day my friends.
