Blue Note Hawaii    (13 votes)
In the 1970s, Robert Cazimero was instrumental in the resurgence of Hawaiian music and culture. That resurgence began a career that almost thirty years later is stronger than ever. Musician, composer, kumu hula...his work in all of these areas is well-known throughout the world. For Robert's Blue Note Hawaii shows, he switches things up and performs a variety of jazz standards as well as traditional Hawaiian favorites.
His incomparable elegant voice is distinctive, whether he performs solo on piano or with his brother, Roland, as The Brothers Cazimero. Recording has played an important part of Robert's career, and he has collectively (as The Brothers Cazimero) and individually released over 30 albums over the past three decades. The success of these recording projects can easily be measured by the fact that they all remain on the market. Fans of Robert and The Brothers Cazimero boast of a complete collection of CDs and tapes.
The many talents of Robert Cazimero have established him as a benchmark in Hawaiian music and culture.

West Coast Swing with Kevin Coleman and the Flat Five each Wednesday at 7:30pm at Onstage

Jazz and Blues arose from common roots in the Black Experience in America. In the middle of the last century Jazz and Blues had a lot in common including musical repertoire and improvisation. For example, repertoire like “Stormy Monday,” “Drifting and Drifting,” and “Parchman Farm.” The music of Kevin Coleman and the Flat Five captures the classic style and repertoire of the West Coast blues and mixes it with improvisation.

Dancers are welcome too as almost all of the West Coast Blues can be danced to using West Coast Swing techniques. Also many of the pieces lend themselves to dancing using East Coast Swing and Lindy Hop.

West Coast blues speaks not only to the Black Experience but to the many of the problems in contemporary America. Like having no job, having no money, going to the pawnshop, and being in jail. Also it specializes in songs about partners who run around, cheat, lie, and break your heart so is a good choice if you have just been dumped. The music has the instrumentation and rhythms that also allow swing dancing.

Kevin Coleman and the Flat Five have been performing each Wednesday from 7:30 to 10 pm at Onstage Bar on Kapahulu for the last seven years. The same musicians have played together for the last six years so the music is tight. There is no Jimi Hendrix or Led Zepplin blues variations. Just the real thing.

The venue is small and is not well kept although the new owners have purchased some tables and painted a wall. The sound system is good and seating limited. It is not a place for fine dresses (other than dance dresses) and certainly not suits. In other words it has the atmosphere of the old roadhouses. ALERT: The air conditioner is working now to cool you down and heated up by Letecia (that is, the Roman goddess of fertility and abundance). Onstage is the perfect place for this music to be played and t
