Congrats!
I'll check my local listings, but I have a feeling it's not going to get showed here.

Aloha, Kick! The show promises to be aired in San Diego on KNSD/NBC at 5:00PM. It'll most likely be on NBC stations in the different markets. The crew came and taped our rehearsal amongst the barrels (shown below) and then came back to record our White Barn Luau -clip can be seen here: http://youtube.com/watch?v=0qwIaaiO4bc
Who knows what'll make it to air and what ended up on the cutting room floor. It'll probably be a short segment, so don't blink! Mahalo.

Heya! Thanks, gang. I'm happy to know that they found us interesting enough to play it again. Here's some nifty news: This segment actually won an Emmy for editing! Not too shabby. Anyhooo... I've put the clip up on our new myspace page. The page is still a work in progress and because I'm such a tech-dope, it may be in progress for some time. There are some photos and couple video clips. All of our current show info will always be available there, too. Search out maikaigents and have a look. I wish that I was skilled enough to maintain and update a proper website, but these strummin' fingers ain't programmed for programming. Oh, well. Enjoy the myspace page.

My DVR happened to pick up the show just the other day and we watched it last night. They really did a great job with it! Most times the tiki culture is profiled on TV, they go for the over-the-top kitsch factor. But this was a classy affair, probably due to the Napa Valley/wine angle, but whatever. It was refreshing to see one of our own taken seriously.
