my thoughts and comments are my own,
if you got a problem with it,
please come and find me to discuss alternative communication options...
Aloha "Gomega and Kanoa Fan",
Mahalos for all your mis-informed and delusional babble.
I don't like to be misquoted or misunderstood,
so I decided to break down your comments for you.
If you are still lost and without a clue....
you can come to ANY of Gomega or Kanoas shows
and ask Kanoa to point me out.
I'd offer to pay your way in, but since the shows are
always so AFFORDABLE, I'm sure you can pay your own way
many times over.
I'd also offer to buy you a drink,
but I don't want you under the influence
of any drugs or alcohol while I break you off
a piece of useful and informational enlightenment.
It has been the understanding of many people, on the island of Maui and the surrounding islands, that Kanoa is one of the best musicians on the islands.
He is in the same breath as Uncle Willie K, NuffSedd and by far better than Paula Fuga and she has a huge following.
NO ONE IS BETTER THAN THE NEXT... THEY JUST DO WHAT THEY DO BEST....
So, what's wrong with Kanoa/Gomega?
NOTHING IS WRONG AS FAR AS THE "REAL" FANS ARE CONCERNED...
BUT I'M SURE YOU HAVE TO SHARE SOME THOUGHTS ON YOUR OKOLE RASH.
He writes great music, plays a number of instruments incredibly well, has a great stage personality and on top of that is a really great person.
YOU SOUND LIKE YOU KNOW HIM SO WELL,
ALMOST ON A PERSONAL LEVEL....
So, what's wrong with Kanoa/Gomega?
ONCE AGAIN?? I'M DYING IN ANTICIPATION
FOR YOU TO SHARE EVERYTHING THAT YOU KNOW.....
Its that shadow in the background of every show,
OHH?? YOU MEAN THE ONE THAT ALLOWS THEM TO BE SUCCESSFUL
ON SO MANY UNSPOKEN LEVELS?? THE ONE THAT DOES ALL THE GROUNDWORK AND THE FOUNDATION OF THEIR PROFESSIONALISM
AND WELL RESPECTED WORK ETHICS? YUPS- I KNOW OF THAT SHADOW.
the member of the band that has way to much say,
REAL RECOGNIZES REAL SON!! OBVIOUSLY YOU DON'T LIKE
THE FACT THAT SOMEONE THAT ACTUALLY CARES ABOUT THE
BAND AND ITS MEMBERS HOLD THEM ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR ACTIONS.
yet no talent,
LAST TIME I CHECKED, YOU DON'T NEED TALENT TO SPEAK THE TRUTH
WHILE KEEPING DISRESPECTFULLY SELFISH PEOPLE IN CHECK!!
the person that causes members of the band that are awesome
to call it quits,
DID SOMEONE CALL THAT "MEMBER" AWESOME
OR IS IT A SELF PROCLAIMED TITLE?
I ONLY KNOW OF ONE MEMBER THAT QUIT
AND THAT MEMBER IS FAR FROM AWESOME.....
IN FACT THAT MEMBER HAS ALOT OF DIRTY LAUNDRY IN THEIR CLOSET.
BUT MY FAM TAUGHT ME NOT TO WASH DIRTY LAUNDRY IN PUBLIC.
SO OUT OF RESPECT, I WON'T AIR IT OUT HERE FOR EVERYONE TO SEE!!
its that person that books them at the same venue over and over and over again until the venue has no more customers
IF IT AINT BROKE, DON'T ATTEMPT TO FIX IT!!
IPO AND KANOA WORK AS A TEAM,
HATING ON ONE, IS HATING ON BOTH...
BETTA RECOGNIZE SON!!
and they can no longer afford to pay bands what they are worth
I KNOW PERSONALLY THAT IPO CHARGES ONE OF THE MOST REASONABLE
FEES IN THE LOCAL INDUSTRY. IF THE BAR CAN'T AFFORD TO PAY THE BAND(S),
THEN ITS AN ISSUE THAT RUNS DEEPER THAN THE ENTERTAINMENT IT BOOKS.
AS FOR WHAT GOMEGA AND KANOA OF GOMEGA IS WORTH?
IF THEY ACTUALLY CHARGED WHAT THEY ARE WORTH,
NO ONE WOULD BE ABLE TO AFFORD THEM.
HOW DO YOU PUT A PRICE ON PRICELESS??
due to over saturation,
WHAT DO YOU REALLY KNOW ABOUT ANY SATURATION??
but yet will still book Kanoa for little to no money at all
ITS CALLED LONGEVITY MY FRIEND...
I FORGOT YOU KNOW EVERYTHING ABOUT HOW MUCH
THEY'RE ACTUALLY WORTH.... RIGHT?
and for so many many other reasons...
SOUNDS LIKE THERE IS ONLY ONE REASON, NOT REASONS.
THAT REASON IS YOU'RE BITTER ABOUT SOMETHING.
IF YOU NEED A HUG, JUST LET ME KNOW....
OR IF YOU WANT A GOMEGA T-SHIRT OR STICKER INSTEAD,
I'M SURE IT WILL MAKE YOU FEEL BETTER AND
HELP YOU GET OVER YOURSELF AND YOUR WEAKSAUCE ATTITUDE!!
Everybody all at once say it with me.
...AND OF COURSE YOU WANT EVERYONE TO SAY IT WITH YOU,
BECAUSE YOU CAN'T SAY IT ON YOUR OWN AND IN PERSON TO HER FACE.
IPO KAHELE is that reason!!!
YES, SHE IS THE REASON THAT THEY HAVE HAD THE SUCCESS AND LONGEVITY
IN THEIR CAREERS. MEMBERS HAVE COME AND GONE, BUT THE FOUNDATION HAS ALWAYS REMAINED THE SAME....IPO HAS KEPT THEM GROUNDED AND FOCUSED.
BUT ON A SIDE NOTE ITS LIKE A CHAMPIONSHIP CALIBER COACH IN ANY SPORT. ALL THEY CAN DO IS PREPARE THEM FOR THEIR DATE WITH DESTINY.... ONCE THE GAME STARTS....
ITS ON THE PLAYERS TO CARRY OUT THE GAME PLAN.
Booking one person for shows on Maui and getting the lowest amount of what they offer any band is not being a manager.
UNLESS YOU OWN AND OPERATE A BOOKING/MGMT AGENCY
OR HAVE THE EXPERIENCE ON MAUI AND IN HAWAII
TO BACK YOUR STATEMENTS....
I HIGHLY SUGGEST YOU START TO SIP FROM THIS TALL GLASS
OF....... SHUT THE FUCK UP WEAKSAUCE!!
He is as good as they come
I AGREE HE IS GOOD, BUT COULD ALSO BE A WHOLE LOT BETTER.
AND I ALREADY TOLD HIM AND REMIND HIM EVERY TIME I SEE HIM,
IN CASE YOU WERE WONDERING.....
and is being destroyed one day at a time.
THE ONLY THING THAT IS DESTROYING HIM
IS THAT HE LOVES ALL THE PEOPLE THAT COME INTO HIS LIFE
AND WANTS TO KOKUA THEM TO SEE THEM SUCCEED AT
WHAT THEY ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT.
THE REAL PROBLEM IS THAT NOT ALL THE PEOPLE
SHARE HIS DESIRE AND VISION, AS WELL AS IPO'S.
SO THEY SET THEMSELVES UP TO FALL SHORT
AND HE TAKES THAT PERSONALLY,
EVEN THOUGH HE HAS NO CONTROL OVER IT.
HE NEEDS TO LET PEOPLE WALK THEIR OWN PATHS
AND NOT HOLD HIMSELF HOSTAGE FOR THEIR OWN ACTIONS....
NO MATTER HOW TALENTED OR GIFTED THE PEOPLE WHO ENTER HIS LIFE,
ANYTHING IN EXCESS IS UNHEALTHY AND DEADLY.
Gomega and Kanoa Fan
IF YOU REALLY WERE A FAN, YOU WOULD SHOW SOME ALOHA AND RESPECT
TO THE ENTIRE TEAM THAT MAKES THEM SUCCESSFUL.
BY ISOLATING IPO AND ATTACKING HER THROUGH YOUR WORDS,
YOU ESSENTIALLY ARE TALKING SMACK ABOUT THE ENTIRE BAND.
YOU ARE ENTITLED TO YOUR OPINION,
BUT YOU ARE NOT ENTITLED TO DISRESPECT ANYONE AT ANY TIME.
I DON'T KNOW WHO YOU ARE, BUT WOULD LOVE TO MEET YOU.
MY OFFER STILL STANDS.... ANY OF HIS SHOWS, ANYTIME.
...wating patiently for the Gomega and Kanoa Fan
