100 Monkeys w. Joey DeGraw, James McKenna: Friday, February 05, 2010 - Saturday, February 06, 2010 - 8:00pm - 1:00am Presented By: Saint Rocke

Ben G - was assembled in the port of juarang, but his parts were made in thailand. traveled to the states in 91 with his brother and mule, and they never would've made it if ben wasn't a submersible, "that means i work underwater." ben started playing music two januarys ago.

Ben J. - discovered in the woods of illinois, captured and brought to NY where he learned to hit things in rhythmic fashion that pleas-eth the ear. rescued by spencer bell, and brought to WI where he continued to hit things in rhythmic delight for the band, The Stevedores. After braving the winters of WI, he migrated southwest to Los Angeles, and started hitting things in rhythmic fashion that so pleas-eth the ear as a 100 Monkey.

J. Action - parts made in indonesia, assembled in singapore, raised on airplane peanuts and bathed in airport restroom sinks, he was saved by texas. given a guitar and a coat he accidentally ventured into the unknown... a wormhole opened, and he found himself in La La Land. he learned how to stand where they told him to, say what they told him to and never lie. rescued by the 100 Monkeys, he now swings about the stage in gratitude.

J. Rad - an agile primate, swung on bars and competed as an acrobat for many years. Is of a rare breed, having the ability to communicate via sign language. He adapted to a coastal habitat, surfing and skateboarding as a way to pass time. However, it wasn’t until he mastered the technique of the singing strings and melodic hammer machine, that the 100 monkeys rushed to claim him as their own.

Uncle Larry - known only as Uncle since discovered at the age of four by a band of traveling musicians, he wouldn’t stop hitting things. For that reason he was given a drum and put to work. After learning the meaning of life at the age of 7 he found learning every instrument a simple task. He proceeded to continue his travels and learned all knowledge worth learning. After happening upon a troupe of monkeys he officially became a monkeys uncle.

Makana w. Jerry Joseph: Sunday, January 31, 2010 - Monday, February 01, 2010 - 8:00pm - 1:00am Presented By: Saint Rocke

The March 1, 2003, Esquire Magazine notes, “Makana is considered the greatest living player” of Slack Key Guitar. Many others agree. In April of 2009, The National Geographic Society (NGS) presented Makana in concert and the event was recorded for the NGS Music Channel series “Geo Sessions”. On their Web site, the NGS wrote, “With five albums to his credit [now 6], he has taken this centuries-old tradition and blasted it into the 21st century, fusing it with influences from Bob Marley to the Smashing Pumpkins, and opening for Sting and Santana. See why this young guitar hero is poised to break out.” In September of 2009, the San Francisco Chronicle said, “His transfixingly agile slack-key technique and genre-crossing music have relit a fire for live music in Waikiki.” With such accolades, it‟s hard to believe that Makana is only 31.

Early on, Makana was recognized as a child prodigy and he studied with Hawai'i slack key legends Raymond Kane and Sonny Chillingworth. He began performing professionally at Honolulu‟s Duke‟s Canoe Club at age 15 and has since produced his own shows in many of Hawaii‟s other significant venues.

On August 27, 2009, Makana with his band and dancers concluded a successful two-month engagement, reopening the renovated Royal Hawaiian Hotel‟s Monarch Room and inaugurating the hotel‟s new “Curators of Hawaiian Music” series. The legendary venue had been dark for 14 years and the headline of the August 14, 2009, Honolulu Advertiser review by veteran Hawai'i Entertainment Reporter, Wayne Harada read, “Makana proves he's a master of the showroom.”
