Yesterday was the official day of mourning in Samoa for the victims of the Tsunami. We're just taking a moment to note this occasion.
Googling the news, all throughout Kiwiland (new Zealand) and The Big Island (Aussie), Samoan communities have been gathering at church and community meetings to provide comfort to those who have suffered loss.
The band sends its deepest sympathies to all the peoples of the pacific who have been affected.
We're hoping to get our song Island Time finished and put up on the web for fundraising for the victims of the Tsunami in Samoa.
Stay tuned for details but in a nutshell, we're hoping to get a release of the song up on the web with a donate type service.
Island Time was inspired by the stories of those who have had to leave for the bigger islands (Aust/NZ) to try and send a little money back home and a pacific folk song about a girl asking her love if he will forget her when he goes to a different island.
A big thankyou to our producer, Jim Finn, for working his buns off to get this one out. Here's jim at work.
I'll post the link for donations etc as soon as we get it sorted.
Hey Folks, a couple of shout outs to our friends and family: Firstly, to Roscoe, get well soon, and to Fadda in Samoa who's occasionally staying on the roof of his hotel, I'm proud of you for lending a hand. Meanwhile, back on the big Island, its gig report time!
