Recent events have conspired against me. I definately can't make this one. But it sure do sound like fun!

Sorry you won't be there.
Missed you at Hukilau.

We're actually doing the gig without the DVD shoot on the 19th.
Since the Mai Kai is undergoing renewal currently, we felt shooting around certain things, like the giant AC unit in the Molokai would diminish the experience for the viewers and mainly listeners.

So we're still going to Kanakapila like crazy men on the 19th. Six pieces with no pressure and a lot of new material.

We'll record it later this year or early next, whenever the rebuilding is complete.

I can't wait to get down there.
Only a few more days.

I'm in Cleveland right now in a cold rain and I don't like it.

Giant AC unit in the Molokai? Who told you this?

Too bad - press release went out to local media regarding the recording...

What about doing an audio recording instead? That solves the visuals problem, and won't deprive the rest of us who want something out of this, and won't disappoint those who come expecting to see a lot of equipment around you as you perform, as promised in the press!

The AC unit is a large portable unit in the same area where the band plays. It does make the room much more comfortable - but it's LOUD - the continuous Ab at about 50 decibels isn't exactly "performance-friendly". It makes recording impossible. Unfortunately, Kern was unable to say with any certainty if it would be gone by next Friday, so we have no choice but to postpone the recording.

We'll still make a joyous noise (slightly louder than the ac) with the Mugs and have a great time. Hope to see a bunch of familiar faces out there!

Isn't that why the amps go to 11?

"Why don't you just make 10 louder?"

"This one goes to 11...."

There will still be more equipment than that place should hold.
I could bring a recorder and drop a line out of the PA. Probably will.
May get something awesome.

Also a small camera - which I was planning on bringing anyway.

But a shoot like the ones I'm used to doing, which are label-sponsored DVDs of performances, need everything tight and this set up wasn't ready for the big guns to come in from NYC, LA and Tampa where I will be flying in the shooters from.

Including our own Sneakyjack!

We can still talk about the CD should anyone ask because our part is fairly stable at this point. It will be worth waiting for another opportunity which will come fairly soon. If nothing else, we'll go in the winter when they don't need the AC.

Last time I was there I was soaked with sweat by the time I left and all I was doing then was sipping frosty tropical cocktails. If I play there with no atmospheric enhancement I might flood the place. Wouldn't be pretty video by the 5th song. And with the AC it won't be pretty sounding audio from the 1st song.

So we called it.

Giant portable AC in the Molokai? Hmmmm. Or I should say wooooooooossssshhhhhhhhh. I'd prefer sarong-clad maidens fanning us with palm fronds.

I'm not going unless the Kats emerge from giant coconuts!

The AC unit has been removed for several days - just wanted to let everyone know.

Looking forward to seeing everyone next weekend!

Too bad they didn't let us know that the giant AC box would defintely be gone. It was literally impossible to pull of the multi-camera recording DVD to the quality level Pablus wanted to do it with that thing in there (both with the noise and taking up all that space, which is in short supply anyway).

On the up-side however, repairs are being effected, and the Mai-Kai will be restored to its former glory to provide the perfect backdrop to our Major Motion Picture, of which you will all be cast members.



Plus we'll be cooler without all the noise. And as Pablus says, maybe we can at least get a feed to do a simple audio recording.

In any event, those who can, come out to the Mai-Kai this Friday night the 19th, hear several great new Crazed Mugs tunes, get a lock of TJ and Josh's hair, and provide your lusty vocal reinforcement to The Rum Barrel Song.

Yep wish it could have worked out for the shoot. I'm still in - And I think you should still shoot it one camera on tripod just to get a feel for the room its self on camera and as a simple reference - could even pick a song and post it as is to youtube or something.

I hope to make it for the next "real" try. If anything changes let me know there's lots of airports around here.

Stay Crazed.

I heard the AC unit is gone might be too tight for all the players to get down there...
Have fun either way!

The Mai Kai called me and has asked that I make sure everyone here knows the AC is now gone. They were waiting on parts that have come in and the house ac is up and running.

See y'all at the Molokai next week - in air-conditioned comfort!

If you haven't heard the Crazed Mugs tune, "Marooned on the Mainland" it's freaking awesome. A new standard in exotica.
