“Life is a great big canvas, and you should throw all the paint you can on it.” – Danny Kaye

What a crazy adventure to have been a part of the HAPA shows in Fall River, MA and New York City. The New York Times called HAPA “the most successful Hawaiian music troupe in recent history.” Being a “special guest” with HAPA for two days was like a dream!

On March 20, 2010 at The Kaye Playhouse, I was invited to join Barry Flanagan and Nathan Aweau, plus have Peter Fonda (of Easy Rider fame) and others off in the wings. It was great to see and meet many of you who came out. The audience in New York was nearly 600. A huge thank you to O’Neill Entertainment, HAPA, and everyone involved in making the huge production a success. Hālāwai helped promote and was able to raise money for future programming through the sale of special tickets.
