I never knew what people meant by a 24hr flu, but I think I just had it. On April 7th (my Birthday) I had an intense fever and body aches. The next day it was mostly gone. And today I feel pretty good. So strange. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining. I wish all my colds lasted to 2 days! (knock on wood!)
Jan 29, 2014
Been cold, rainy, and windy lately. Roy’s gig is canceled tonight because of the weather. Hope it’s cleared up next Wednesday!
Jan 7, 2014
Happy New Year! Looking forward to a bigger and better Year! Hope to see you guys soon!

Wow, that’s the fastest I’ve ever recovered from being sick! Actually felt better 5 days after. Thank you Spirulina & Chlorella!
July 25, 2013
Well, it’s been a while since I got sick. Sore throat and congested. Guess it was bound to happen when everyone around me is sick. I won’t be @ Princess Kaiulani tomorrow. I also won’t be there on Monday. They are trying a new Jazz Duo on Mondays. I will be there every Friday from now on. If the Jazz doesn’t work out, I will be playing on Mondays & Fridays.
July 1, 2013
I’ll be playing at the 4th of July Fireworks Show @ Maunalua Bay 6:00-6:30pm. The fireworks are always Awesome!
June 4, 2013
Well, I hope my voice has finally found a home. It may be changing because I’m getting older. Seems to be okay for the moment.
May 10, 2013
So I’ve been trying some new vocal exercises. I think I’m singing “correctly” now. It’s kind of weird though, I can’t sing as high as I used to, but I have more power. I guess I’m not as breathy anymore. If some songs sound a little weird, it’s because I’m still getting used to it.
May 5, 2013
Playing @ the Haleiwa Farmer’s Market today. They just re-opened at the Lilioukalani Church in Haleiwa Town, right across the street from Matsumoto Shave Ice. It’s open from 1:00-5:00pm. I’ll be there from 1:00-4:00pm.
Hope to see you there!
April 28, 2013
Hi guys! Yikes, haven’t posted in a while. So Busy! Got my schedule up for May. I might be playing @ the Haleiwa Farmer’s Market on Sundays. Not sure yet though. They just re-opened today. They moved to the Lilioukalani Church, across the street from Matsumoto’s Shave Ice. They will have more vendors next week, and I’m sure it will continue to grow. Good food, drinks, produce, crafts, Check it out!
March 27, 2013

Feb 6, 2013
Still fighting off the last of my cold. Won’t be singing @ Roy’s tonight. Hopefully I’ll be at PK on Friday.
Feb 4, 2013
After singing @ Roy’s I almost lost my voice because I was still fighting a cold. My cold got worse. I won’t be at PK tonight. I’m feeling better right now. Hopefully I’ll be @ Roy’s on Wednesday. Please send me your Positive Get Well Energy! Thank You!
Jan 30, 2013
Well, I’m feeling better, not 100% but I’ll be @ Roys tonight. Hope to see you there!
Sorry if you were coming to see me @ Princess Kaiulani tonight. I’m sick again. It’s not the flu, so that’s good. If I’m feeling better by Wednesday I’ll be at Roy’s Hawaii Kai. I will update my schedule on Wednesday to let you guys know. Thank you!
Dec 28, 2012
I’ll be @ Princess Kaiulani- Splash Bar tonight 8:30-10:30pm. Hope to see you there!
Dec 13, 2012
What a busy month! And we’re only half way through! Doesn’t the year always seem to go by soooooo fast! I’ve been cutting back on my gigs lately, but I’m still playing regularly at Roy’s Hawaii Kai & Princess Kaiulani. Hope to see you guys soon!
Nov 30, 2012
Yup, that mixture of hot tea, garlic, ginger, & cayenne pepper did the trick! Gotta stay healthy through December!
Nov 18, 2012
Wow, I think I found the Best home remedy for a cold! Hot tea (I used Lemon Echinacea Throat Coat)- added ginger, garlic, & cayenne pepper. Been drinking it twice a day. I was able to sing in 2 days! I’ve never been able to sing that quick after getting sick! Not 100% yet, but at least I don’t have to cancel anymore gigs. Hope to see you guys at PK tomorrow night.
Nov 15, 2012
Woke up with congestion and sore throat. Been surrounded by sick people. I’m gonna start wearing one of those white masks when there’s sick people around me.
Nov 14, 2012
Sorry if you’re coming to see me at Roy’s tonight, I won’t be there, but I will be there next week. Hope to see you!
Oct 31, 2012
Hey guys, I just found out I won’t be at Roy’s tonight since it’s Halloween. Have fun, be safe!
Oct 21, 2012
Wow, has it been that long since I’ve posted something?! Yikes! I guess life has a way of keeping us all really busy huh?!
Well, as you can tell by my schedule, I’ve cut back on my gigs. I think it’s helping my voice. I was over-doing it for the last 4yrs. It feels good to have some extra time off.
Sept 27, 2012
Feeling better than yesterday! Almost kicked this cold. Just a tiny bit left. Went to Capoeira tonight to sweat it out. Feelin’ pretty good right now. Gonna get a good night sleep and wake up refreshed!!! I’ll be playing @ Wahoo’s Kahala tomorrow night. Hope to see you there!
Sept 26, 2012
So the congestion is slowly going away, but I need it to be gone faster! Well, at least it’s getting better. One day at a time…..
Sept 23, 2012
Well, I’m feeling a lot better, but I still sound congested. Can’t really sing yet. Doesn’t look like I’ll be playing @ PK tomorrow night. I will be 100% soon! Positive Energy…. Positive Energy…. Positive Energy….
Sept 21, 2012
Well, I’m sick again. Starting to get worried about my immune system. I guess it could be because I workout a lot, and my doctor did say that singing every night will make me more prone to getting sick because my vocal chords are always in repair. Well, being sick is definitely my least favorite thing EVER! Send me some positive-get-well energy please!
Sept, 10, 2012
I’ll be @ Princess Kaiulani tonight, hope to see you guys there!
Sept 4, 2012
Well, I just found out I won’t be playing @ Roy’s on Tuesdays anymore. They are cutting back on entertainment for now. I’ll be there on Wednesdays though! Hope to see you there!
August 29, 2012

August 12, 2012
Haven’t been too happy with my voice lately. Something has been wrong with it for a while. It seems to be getting better though. Hope it’s 100% soon!
July 24, 2012
Still sound congested. Not gonna be at Roy’s tonight. Hopefully I’ll be there tomorrow.
July 23, 2012
This cold is driving me Crazy! I feel okay, but I still sound congested. Cancelled my gig at PK tonight. I’m thinking I’ll be at Roy’s tomorrow night even if I’m still a little congested. But I hope it’s gone tomorrow!
July 20, 2012
Well, I’m feeling a little better, but I had to cancel my gig @ the Moana Surfrider on Saturday. Had to cancel early so they could find a replacement. I should be better by Monday so I can sing at Princess Kaiulani. I’ll be updating my schedule if not. Thanks guys!
July 18, 2012
It really sucks being sick. I have to cancel my gigs early even though there’s a chance I’ll be better by the time that day comes. I have to give them time to find a replacement, just in case I can’t sing.
July 17, 2012
Sorry guys, I just updated my schedule. Not gonna be @ Roy’s tonight. I’m feeling a little better, but not good enough to sing. Hopefully I’ll feel a lot better tomorrow.
July 16, 2012
Dam, I’m sick again! Won’t be playing @ Princess Kaiulani tonight. Not sure if I’ll be able to play @ Roy’s tomorrow or Wednesday. Check my schedule, I will update it as soon as I know. Please send me some get better energy. Thanks guys!
July 10, 2012
Wow, I didn’t realize how long it’s been since I posted, sorry guys! My email is working fine now. Sorry if you’re going to Roy’s tonight to see me. I won’t be there because I need to rest my voice.

June 17, 2012

May 2, 2012
Well, I’m still sick. I really hope I’m better by Friday. I have to sing at a Wedding. It’s the worst feeling for me when I have to sing sick, especially on someone’s special day. Please send me some positive, get-better energy! Thanks guys!
May 1, 2012
Sorry if you came to Roy’s tonight. I’m sick again. I really wish there was a way I could never be sick again. If you’re coming to see me @ Roy’s tomorrow, please check my schedule. I will try to update it during the day. It’s hard to predict how I will be feeling. I usually feel the worst in the morning, and I feel better as the day goes on. Please send me some positive vibes so I can get better soon! Thank you!
