The 70's Nightclub Reunion in retrospect...Part IV

As the years have gone by, more and more bands from the 70's have come forward to reunite. It has not been an easy task to say the least as there are many challenges to overcome for each band that wants to participate. When each band finally does agree to participate, it’s for the right reason and when their intent is unified, it happens. Although it is unfortunate that both Phase VII and Aura will not be able to join us for Reunion V as originally planned, Power Point and the New Experience have graciously agreed to take their slots. Ashberry was able to assemble five out of its six original members to take the stage as the “new addition” to the line-up for Reunion V. Out of all the major Waikiki nightclubs of the 70's era, we previously did not have any band representing “da Sting.” Now we’re complete with Ashberry’s inclusion. We round out Reunion V's lineup with White Light and yours truly Greenwood.

Well, there you have it. Thanks for being patient with me and reading through this. As several members of participating bands have had surgeries to repair life-threatening conditions, we begin to appreciate even more, this second chance to reunite and get back on stage. Life is fragile and in some cases very short. We need to live life to its fullest and not leave anything to rest. A very close friend used this phrase from a Climax song on my birthday cake early in Greenwood’s inception. I live it as best as possible…. ”If you believe in dreams enough, then they’ll believe in you….”

Mahalo and A Hui Ho!
