Bring on the music

Everyone listens to music on iPods or on the radio, but how about live music? Well, if you turn the corner from the campus bookstore, you are sure to find a live concert just about any afternoon.

It all started with three friends playing their guitars and singing, and the rest is history, or at least history still in progress. Over a few weeks, the group has grown in numbers. Dean Sooalo, a HonoluluCC student who hangs out with the group says, “I came because I heard people singing songs I knew.” Tyrell Cherry, another student who consistently comes to play, says “It passes time, music is fun, and it’s great to be around other musicians.”

The students on campus love it. Joseph Kanoa says, “They play some really good music!”

“I like hearing the music when I pass by; it makes me smile,” said Marc Moises. The music has not only reached out to the students but to the staff as well. Spring Busche-Ong from the Child Care Center has high praise for the group. “My heart will be broken if they move. This group really encompasses what island living is all about. It reminds me of the older days when we would sit around jamming our music. Not to mention, the youngest members of HonoluluCC, our keiki, love it as well.”

This group has certainly made an impact all over the campus. The question is, will they become a club? ASUH-HCC President Kaleo Gagne says, “I am grateful to hear them every day. I have been constantly asking them to make a club.This is real talent at its finest.”
