On the road again…

Aloha and I hope you have had a chance to relax this August before the hustle and bustle of the Fall season begins! I recently traveled to Kansas City and Springfield, MO and Seattle, WA and wanted to share some moments from my trip.

I love the expanse of the Midwest! You can see for miles. Growing up there I took it for granted and thought it was boring but now it’s awe inspiring.

Hangin’ with my dear friends Eduardo Ana Paula Mendonça. Eduardo’s one of my Brazilian music mentors and an incredible guitarist and singer living in the Seattle area.

I got to play a gig with Eduardo like old times with his fantastic Brazilian band Show Brazil! I played, recorded and toured with Show Brazil for several years before moving to Hawaii in 2000.

Jeff “Bongo” Busch! He’s actually an incredible percussionist/drummer and we played together in Show Brazil! Got to sit in at his gig and watch him shred on them drums. Such a ham!

The night I came home we went out for sushi. Just couldn’t find good sushi on the Mainland and one of the many reasons I am so happy to come home!
