Conrats to my bandmates for a job well done! I opened Saturday morning's (5/11/02) Honolulu Advertiser and read the really nice review we got from Wayne Harada. Also, John Berger from the Star Bulletin equally gave us some nice words in Friday's edition. And then this morning I checked out Aloha Joe Hawaiian internet radio and more nice words. Absolutely Marvelous! Eeeii ha!
We're really thrilled they captured the essence of what we're trying to get across. I've clipped out the articles and stapled them on our web site for those who didn't get a chance to see them. Read them here
Check our web calendar for venue maps, updates and times. We hope to see you soon.
Lizard Loft presents
The Lizard Loft presents Coconut Joe and the Bicycle Perspectives, a multi-media art presentation combining live original music and a video presentation of island photography at the Arts at Marks Garage on June 7, 8, 9 and June 15, 16, 2007. The first collection starts at 8pm.
Local singer, songwriter Bob Rogers shares his music, words and now his visuals with a unique and intimate performance at the hub of the revitalized downtown art scene. The music features the original songs of Rogers and the vocal harmonies of the group Coconut Joe, which includes veteran Hawai`i musicians, guitarist Frank Kam, bassist Peter Agustin, Scott Sato on percussion and Barbara Ann Rogers on vocals. The group’s eclectic musical styles include a hybrid of pop, folk, rock and jazz with a touch of the islands.
As a backdrop to the music, Bob Rogers will be presenting his 5 year photo collection of Hawai`i perspectives taken from his mountain biking and hiking travels along Hawai`i coasts and mountain trails. This performance will showcase his Windward Coast of O`ahu Collection: Makapu`u to Turtle Bay. (see Bob's Bicycle Perspective site)
Rogers shares his thoughts behind his photos. “We tend to hop in our cars and drive from one location to another and never really see what’s in between. I decided to take it a little slower; take the back roads; explore a little of my island home.”.
Ticket prices: $15 general, $10 students. Limited concert seating. Advance ticket orders available at www.honoluluboxoffice.com at The Arts at Marks Garage.

CJ’s Night In Tunisia!
We’ll actually considered this especially after learning that Tunisia recently cleared land mines on their Libyan border so they could extend their pipeline. How neighborly of them. Momar sent flowers I believe. Oh, and forget the State Departments warning of terrorist activity in the region. Charming. But hey, these are the kind of things we were considering.
Actually, Tunisia does have a good relationship with the US and are a known tourist destination and we really were considering it. The problem was they wanted us in 5 weeks and that really didn’t give us much time to pack our extra loud camouflage aloha shirts, get our shots and three weeks supply of poi (overheard at band rehearsal, “I ain’t eating no stinkin’ camel burgers”). Plus, we have some prior engagements, so after three days of emailing back and forth and noted band tension, I had to decline the offer. So, yes, we will be traveling in August, but just to Kona on the Big Island for a private party.
CJ GLOBAL ALERT! We’re also being considered for the Wuhan Festival in China in late Sept. Frank is so excited to visit his ancestors and I want to see where David Carradine was raised. Cross your fortune cookies. As Barbara always says, “you never know!” were the Joes are going to be next.
I do know this, we’ll see you at Matters of Taste this Saturday. Aloha kakou!
