Hearing the sound of Hawaiian music as we come down the escalators into the baggage claim area of the Maui airport is always such a nice way to be welcomed home after a trip off island. It is especially heart warming when we know the musicians. We first talked story with Sheldon Brown and his brother Kevin at Kaanapali Beach Hotel Mix Plate Restaurant as were dining before a show years ago. Then we met up again after performing at the Hana Taro Festival and then at Benny Uyetake’s Ukulele Explosion.
