Ticket sales begin March 1, 2007........

Just received the latest update on the 70's Nightclub Reunion III from our bandleader Robin. I think everyone was really looking forward to having the event at the Ilikai once again because of the large seating capacity, but things happen that are out of everyone's control. The good thing about the Ala Moana Hotel is the parking. Last year people were parking at places like the Hilton and walking all the way to the Ilikai. Parking will be much, much better.
Will have an update on where to park later but for now just wanted to stress the very limited seats that will be available. Once the tickets in the ballroom are sold out there will only be overflow seating available in the adjacent room and standing room as well. There will be widescreens available to let you watch the bands as they play but it's just not the same as being there in the flesh. Don't wait too long on this as seating will be very, very limited. Last year Phase VII was the group I was really looking forward to see, this year as Miles our trumpet player & horn section leader so aptly put it, "I'm really looking forward to seeing White Light again". You took the words out of my mouth Miles. It's gonna be a real cool evening at the Ala Moana Hotel come Saturday, May 5, 2007.


Just a heads up. As of yesterday, over 100 seats have been reserved for our events as people have started to call in their reservations to Candy. As you know, ticket sales officially start on March 1, Thursday. If you have any reservations that you need to call in, please do so now to Candy (before Thursday). We allowed 2 months for ticket sales but at this rate it doesn’t look like we’ll have anything left after a few weeks! People are buying multiple tables as they did last year.

It'll be a scramble for tickets this year....

Got an email from our bandleader Robin with details of the upcoming event. The old saying is so true, you know the one, "Don't it always seem to go that you don't know what you got till it's gone". Joni Mitchell, the cool & wise one. Oh well, you know what I'm saying. 70s Reunion I was attended by a little over 600, Reunion II saw about 860, but it was in the Ilikai Pacific Ballroom the third largest ballroom in Hawaii. The move to Ala Moana to a smaller room couldn't be helped due to the change in the Ilikai ownership & long range plans of management. Sometimes you just gotta do the best you can with the cards you've been dealt with. No doubt Candy & staff will do another bang up job to make use of every inch of space that is available at the Ala Moana Hotel. The seating and setup will be a little different than the previous year so be quick to make your reservations as seats are limited. March 1st is the first day for ticket sales and there are already a bunch of people who have requested blocks of tickets. So this year make it a point to get those tickets early. Just like my cool high school Japanese language teacher once said, "I can wait but time won't". It's gonna be real cool so don't forget to get your tickets early this year. Here's some detail of the seating & stuff from our bandleader Robin.


Seating is limited so reservations will be a must. These are the type of tables that are available in the main Hibiscus Ballroom (seating for 580).

Tables of 14 - 29 (406 people)
Tables of 20 - 6 (120 people)
Table of 12 - 1 (12 people)
Tables of 6 - 7 (42 people)

There will be additional tables outside of the ballroom and in the Garden Lanai. These would be considered open seating as well as SRO (standing room only). Tickets will be available for sale March 1, 2006. In addition, Candy has informed me that all the band tables will be outside of the main ballroom since they will have to maximize the paying attendance in the main ballroom. As people filter out throughout the night and as seat/tables become available in the main ballroom, those who have open seating and or are in the SRO mode can move into the main ballroom.

Should you have any questions regarding this event, please feel free to call or email me.

It's been a long, long time since the last post and a lot of cool stuff has happened since. First things first the event has a new home. With Candy Au now the Director of Catering at the Ala Moana Hotel, the 70's Nightclub Reunion III will be held in the Hibiscus Ballroom on Saturday, May 5, 2007 from 8pm to 1am.
