Train to Headline STAR 101.9′s BAND CAMP 8

Posted in Events on November 20th, 2010

TRAIN will headline “Star 101.9′s Band Camp 8” and make their Hawaii debut on Dec. 2, 2010 at Blaisdell Arena.

Internationally-known guitarist ORIANTHI (who appeared with Michael Jackson in “This Is It”) and Hawaii-based bands THE THROWDOWNS and PIMPBOT will open the event, which is being produced by Tom Moffatt Productions. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the show begins at 7 p.m.

Grammy award-winning TRAIN’s fifth album, “Save Me San Francisco,” features the hits “Hey, Soul Sister,” and “If It’s Love.” “Hey, Soul Sister” is the No. 1 most downloaded song in Columbia Records history and was certified quadruple Platinum by the RIAA as of July 14, 2010. The album has sold more than 500,000 copies.

At 24 years old, ORIANTHI has already experienced what most aspiring musicians only dream of. She’s opened for her hero (Steve Vai), backed an Idol (Carrie Underwood), traded solos with a legend (Carlos Santana) and shared the stage with the King of Pop (Michael Jackson). The world was offered a glimpse of her collaborative performances with Jackson in “This Is It,” the movie that included footage from his last concert tour rehearsals.

THE THROWDOWNS released their debut album, “Don’t Slow Down,” last year and have shared the stage with a variety of bands including The Fray, Matisyahu, Bad Brains, Panic at the Disco, 311, NOFX, the English Beat and others. The Maui-based group is making their second Star 101.9 Band Camp appearance.

PIMPBOT, Hawaii’s DIY-heroes, have taken their original brand of rock/reggae/ska bangers from the shores of Waikiki to the world. The Na Hoku Hanohano (Hawaii’s Grammys) nominated rock band was a featured showcase artist at Austin’s South By Southwest Music Festival and recently completed a tour of Asia & the Pacific Rim sponsored by Armed Forces Entertainment.


STAR 101.9 Band Camp 8

2010 Honolulu Toys for Tots Parade

Posted in Events on November 19th, 2010

Get those Harleys ready for the December 5, 2010 Street Bikers United Toys for Tots parade in Honolulu, Hawaii. Four to five thousand riders are expected to make the four mile route beginning at Magic Island and ending at Kapiolani Community College. Participants from several Hawaiian Islands, Japan and other counties are expected.

The event is sponsored by Street Bikers United Hawaii and advanced registration is not required. Gates open at 7AM and the ride begins at 11AM lasting about an hour .All motorcycle riders and their bikes are welcome. A $2 donation is requested to help defray costs for permits, traffic control and insurance.

I spoke to Ray Pagon, State Treasurer for Street Bikers United Hawaii. He asked me to remind riders to be considerate of our neighbors and tourists alike. He encouraged riders to obey all speed limits and discourages revving engines to reduce complaints. This ride brings in over 10,000 toys to boys and girls and he does not want to see the event closed down.

For more information, contact event manager Ray Pagan. Here is a look at last years parade: 2009 Toys for Tots Biker Parade Waikiki.
