So if you been following along, then you have already seen and heard of the HULK. I love this green machine. Tenor scale with no sound hole, and still able to hold up acoustically. I really love the sound Godin Guitars has brought to this instrument that I grew up loving. I like to think that the HULK sets me apart from the other players out there with the sound and look. If you ever get a chance to catch a show please share your experience on all your social media platforms and follow me on mine.
Everybody LOVES Bob Marley. Whats your favorite Bob song? I have a lot of um. This is one of the first.
Organic Island Music coming from Maui you first need to understand there are so many genre and styles that we have come familiar to. I can remember my dad only listening to Hawaiian music and pretty much playing Hawaiian, Lu’au music with a little Jazz and Calypso. On the Weekend we spent countless hours at the dinner table or patio with my cousins, listening to Hawaiian & Reggae music. This is one of those songs I can remember sitting and listening to on the radio. Catchy hook line Juice from the Mango, Milk from the Coconut. I hope you enjoy this version as much as I had fun making it for you.
So this is one of the most requested songs at most of my gigs so I figure do a version with Bruddah Nate Lopez * String Guitar. I hopeYou Like It and Don’t forget to stop by the You Tube and support it on line in every way. Mahalo once again for all the support
Another one for the books! Love Jammin with this guy. Everything feels so easy. Please stop by the You Tube channel and see if there is a video or two you might have missed. Big Mahaloto Musahi Flores for the cover art on this one as well.
Happy New Year all and thank you for making this your one stop for Organic Island Music. So we have been very busy here, taking a trip to Las Vegas to watch Bruno Mars was a blast wrapping up 2018. Coming home New Years eve was perfect. I am back to work on Maui this whole week, but will head out to Los Angeles on the 23rd. I will be attending my first NAMM show. National Association of music merchants is what NAMM stands for. It’s like I get to be a kid and run thru the toy store for 4 days. Any way I am looking forward to going, please wish me luck as I will be searching for endorsements.
I am also very happy to say Bryan Funai’s New Year Party was fantastic. Mitch Kepa, Benny Uyetake, Brian Haia, Gilbert Emata, Nate Lopez all joined in on the Jam session.
Any way here’s what I know you love… Organic Island Music with Bruddah Nate Lopez 8 String Guitar player from Santa Rosa California. He plays gigs here from time to time and I always love jamming out with him. I hope you like this version of Pineapple wine.
Playing shows all over Maui Thursday's are always a blast. Starting with breakfast at the Wharf, Down the Hatch has become a staple to Organic Island Music. Defiantly a party vibe! For starters you can get breakfast and a craft of your favorite sorts beverage til 10:30a.m ( no judgement). If fresh fruit is what you like, I gotta say Break wall shave ice has one of the best açaí bowls on island. Put your order in grab a table or bar seat and enjoy the morning energy first thing in the morning Lahaina Style! As you all know how my shows go... I pound out 2 and half hours strait so the earlier you get there the better.
Lunch hit's and I'm in Ka'anapali at the newest Maui location for the Monkeypod Kitchen. It's fun exiting new venue that just keeps getting better. Casual is the attire and party is the vibe if you're ready. The sound system in this place is top of the line! Bose speakers thru out with subs and all... It sounds great here. The Man Tai is what's up, no joke with the Liliko'i foam topper. There available seating during lunch and happy hours but if you come at Dinner please make a reservation. Wrapping up at 3 o'clock Happy Hour starts and more music to follow at 4.
If you get the chance please stop by and say aloha. Stay for awhile and talk stories it's all good and thats why
