Greenwood's Songlist for Friday's 70s Salute to the Troops featuring Liz Damon

It's pretty amazing how quickly time flies. I remember Japanese class at Waipahu High School. Mrs. Harada was calling us out one by one to present our homework assignment in front of the class. "Bill Arakawa", Mrs. Harada called. "Teacher, teacher, wait, wait!!!", Bill responded. Mrs. Harada, "I can wait but time won't". Touche' Mrs. Harada, Touche'. We can wait but truly time waits for noone.

Speaking of Japanese class, here's the latest from the Hawaii '72 website and guess what? Liz Damon will be re-releasing her original long playing (LP) album "Me Japanese Boy" but now available on CD at the event with some of the proceeds going to the fundraiser. Here's a little ditty from the Hawaii '72 website.

Re-Release CD at Event
The featured guest artist of the "'70s Salute to Our Troops" will launch the re-release of her hit album "Me Japanese Boy" during the August 12 event in the Ilikai's Pacific Ballroom.

"And I'll be giving a portion of the CD sales that night to the cause," said Liz, who played to packed audiences in the '70s as leader of the Orient Express.
This exclusive opportunity is part of the effort to help families of the Hawaii Army National Guard's 29th Support Battalion.

It's already Tuesday and it'll be just a few short days to Friday night's "70s Salute to the Troops". Our band Greenwood finished up practice this past Sunday and are ready to go. This Friday's lineup should look like this: Opening up at 8 pm will be the Kingpins. They should go 45 minutes. At 9 pm Flashback featuring Dalton Tanonaka will start playing. Flashback's time slot is about an hour and a half during which time Liz Damon will sing her songs. Somewhere in this hour and a half, Les Hee will do his Elvis imitation. Does Les know that June Jones and Jerry Glanville are leaving tickets at Aloha Stadium for all Warrior football games this season? At 11:15 Greenwood goes on for 45 minutes. Then finally at 12:15 the Soulz will close out the night. That's the plan in a nutshell for Friday. Hope to see you all there at the Ilikai. Hooo hooo!!!!! Here's Greenwood's songlist for this Friday. It's gonna be a real Cool Tropical night this Friday, August 12, 2005 in paradise!!!!!
