In between rum-soaked Uke Jams at Pablus' Lagoon Lounge, we've actually been working. It's taken us quite a bit longer to get around to recording than we thought due to heavy giggage this year...but we're almost finished.

The CD is called Lei'd Back, and focuses on classic Hapa-Haole tunes. It's all acoustic, featuring the traditional lineup of Resonator Guitar, Upright Bass and Ukulele.

We recorded these tracks live in Kanekila's living room...just like the old days, we all had to get a good take at the same time...no easy feat...but it was well worth the effort. The result is a very natural sounding recording that accurately represents our live sound.

It will include:

Luau
My Little Grass Shack
Palms
South Sea Lullabies
Little Brown Gal
Pearly Shells
On A Coconut Island
Lovely Hula Hands
Blue Hawaii
Aloha Oe
Hula Blues
On A Little Bamboo Bridge

We'll be sure to announce when the finished product is available. In the meantime, here are a few tunes to whet your appetite...please take a moment to let us know what you think.

Thanks!

Thanks! Glad ya'll are digging it...I had a feeling Pablus was gonna like it...I know he's got a soft spot for that acoustic steel.

Duke - We'll have copies of our 1st Hawaiian disc, the new disc and our Swing CD. We're looking forward to seeing everyone at Exotica!

The only thing that could be better than your last disc would be another one!
