What was most gratifying was talking to the people after the show, some who haven't been back to Hawaii in 30 years. They were so appreciative that Mark brought Hawaiian music to, of all places, New Orleans, Lousiana. People were already talking about next year and how they will bring their friends. And that's what it's all about right? Sharing the music and spreading the word.
We can't thank Mark Schenk enough...not only for bringing us to his hometown, but also for being such a huge supporter for all these years (I think it's 14 years now!) He has some phenomenal stories about the Sons that I hope one day he'll share with all of you. Mahalo nui to Mark and his 'ohana:
and extended 'ohana:
Six Pack (the movie star)
Ricochet (the cruiser)
Road Runner (chef extraordinaire)
and Juan and the sound crew...you guys were awesome. Thanks Dolf, for the stage and lighting...we LOVE your truck!
Weaver 'ohana, thank you for the beautiful lei's.
to the Lakeview Harbor family, thank you for making us feel at home.
We hope to be back next year!!!
