Six bands took the stage for a local band showcase at the Crossroads at Hawaiian Brian’s including Operation 7.5, A Shot at Sundown, Beware the Bear, T.V. Microwave, Suburpia and Censor This. Also featured are videos by Songbird & the Colors (with special thanks to Vincent Ricafort), Tito Montana ft. Dave East and David D’Angelo (courtesy of HIP Video Promo), plus Lightsleepers‘ sixth qualifier of the Beatroot showdown, which pits Hawaii’s top music producers against one another in a heated beat battle.

I am a lifelong Honoluluan whose true calling is to tell the stories of others, whether through photos, film, video, audio or the written word. Here is a collection of my works – some previously published in periodicals like Billboard, the Honolulu Advertiser, Honolulu Star-Bulletin and Honolulu Weekly, though most of what you read or view here has never been seen before.
