Beach Walk 364 – This is Where It’s At

Join me and Lexi in the studio as Mighty J records the last song for the upcoming CD!

Yet another incredible new song by Mighty J. Though we are usually on the beach in the sunshine, Lexi and I could not pass up this opportunity to be in the studio with Mighty J and Doctor Trey for our “one year’s eve” episode!

Mailani is one half of the well-known, Keahiwai one of my favorites. Here’s Mai’s MySpace page too,
Tiks is from Milo Shade,
Jenn plays with Kanalo and with Zaysha in the acoustic band Simple Souls.

It’s Doctor Trey who is the genius producer behind this group, who BTW has their own Mighty J TV show at the web site. Please go on over there and subscribe after you watch this show. If you haven’t discovered contemporary Hawaiian musicians, then check out their web sites too.

I did get scolded once by the doctor; forgot my guest status for a moment and went into boss mode. Sorry Trey. :-(

Mailani, Tiki, and Jenn of Mighty J, an all-women band from here in Hawai’i, debut a new song, “Girls Night Out.”

I love this new song by Mighty J.

Mailani is one half of the local favorite, Keahiwai one of my favorites. Here’s Mai’s MySpace page too,
Tiki is from Milo Shade,
Jenn plays with Kanalo and Simple Souls.

More laughter and aloha in today’s show. Listen to the lyrics; they are right on.

Beach Walk 334 – Mighty J Part 1

Meet the Mailani, Tiki, and Jenn of Mighty J, an all-women band from here in Hawai’i.

These women have each made their mark in other bands:
Mailani is one half of the local favorite, Keahiwai one of my favorites.
Tiki is from Milo Shade.
Jenn plays with Kanalo and Simple Souls.

You can hear one of Jenn’s songs on Beach Walk #98.

I think these women are awesome: so much talent, personality, and a solid positive message that goes along so well with Beach Walks. I think you are going to love this episode, and…if you want to know more you can listen to an audio podcast over at 808Talk with V Brown. He just interviewed them last week.

I found out about this band from my friend Doctor Trey. He is a recording pro and has a very popular podcast about the Hawaiian music scene.

Big shout out also to Secret Cameraman for arranging a two-camera shoot on this one and putting together an episode that captures the beauty and energy of Mailani, Tiki, and Jenn. (Those are MySpace links.)

Coming tomorrow! A world-wide debut of a new song by Mighty J. Be sure and check out their blog and vidcasts.
