Bridging the Gap~ April 12th, 2014 (Sort of birthday show)

hank you so much for all of your support for Hawaii Public Radio’s Challenge 2014 Drive.
Without you, the listener and supporter, we are just a bunch of music snobs talking to ourselves.
A huge thank you to all who listened and donated to Bridging the Gap. It was the best turnout yet, pocketing a whopping $3,500 for Hawaii Public Radio.
Finally, it’s my Birthday, so after the show we’re all getting together tonight after the show at Murphy’s in Chinatown for a few drinks (probably round 10pm) and possibly will walk up to Eleven44 after. If you’re out, stop by and say Hi.

Post Mardi Gras!

Mardi Gras Photo

We survived Mardi Gras! In total, I played 5 different sets, spread out over 4 stages and venues. Totally exhausting, but I would’t have traded it for anything.  It’s so nice to have people grooving to the music you love. A huge thank you to Mark Tarone and Miss Catwings for setting the whole thing up.

This was the view from stage…breathtaking!

Again, Thank you all for coming out and dancing,
~dj mr.nick
