January 26th, 2013 Cha Cha Cha Phlocking with Scott Carey
Mahalo to all our folks who showed up this past Sunday for the January Phlocking at Cha Cha Cha’s in Hawaii Kai. The weather was fantastic and our group again enjoyed an afternoon of great food, drinks and good company at one of the best waterfront venues on Oahu.
We were entertained by new club member Scott Carey, another Florida Native who has been living here in Hawaii the past few years and has finally connected with our club! We really appreciate his willingness to come out and play for us. He has a huge assortment of music which kept us thoroughly entertained the entire evening. It’s hard to look through his song list and not be totally amazed at the number of songs and variety of genres that he’s able to cover. Folks really enjoyed the “name that tune” game he played and his willingness to play requests and even let folks jump on stage and sing along! We’re certainly looking forward to our next chance to catch another Scott Carey show!
Thanks to Angie and Jeff at Cha Cha’s for opening their deck up to our crew and giving us some great Happy Hour deals! We look forward to doing it again sometime soon! It was also great to meet fellow Parrot Head, Ron King who was visiting from North Carolina. He was in town for the Pro Bowl, looked up our club and joined us for the day. It’s always great to meet members of the Phlock, from other regions of the Country! Also was Mahalo to our friend Bruce “The Bird Guy”, for bringing out one of his “Phlock”. Plans for our February Gathering are in the works…we’ll let you know what’s up very soon!!!
February 22nd, 2013 Trop Rock Cruise Party
Great time last night with the Pau Hana Parrot Heads on the “E Sea Rider” for the Trop Rock and Roll Cruise. Our group enjoyed a spectacular Hawaiian Sunset, glassy calm seas, great company and plenty of “Boat Drinks”! Thanks to all the folks who we able to make the trip and also Mahalo to Captain Tiger and Stephanie. We look forward to seeing everyone again next month.
March 30th, 2014 Dixie Grill Party and Fundraiser
Mahalo to all the folks who were able to make the outing this past Sunday afternoon over at Dixie Grill. Our group enjoyed a beautiful Hawaiian afternoon on the ”Back Porch” with great company and some fantastic music. We would especially like to thank our entertainers Scott Carey, Cash Caldwell and Jeff Eck who provided the non- stop show!!! Also thanks to Patrick and the gang at Dixie Grill for again allowing us to crash the “Porch”, and as usual putting out some really Ono food and friendly service.
We had a very successful fundraiser and will be sending out a check for $800 this week to the Taggerty Ohana in Clovis NM. Hopefully this will help a little in getting their life back to normal after the devastating home fire they experienced earlier in March. The Taggerty’s are a special family who were always willing to help neighbors and community during their stay here in Hawaii, so glad we’re able to finally pay them back a little for all they’ve done!!!
Look forward to meeting up again with everyone sometime in April.
June 5th, 2014 Hideaway Club Phlocking
Great time had by all on June 5th, at the Pau Hana Parrot Heads Gathering. The party started at the 3/4 Time Bar, then migrated down to the USCG Hideaway Club for the remainder of the evening.

It was great to see Kevin and his family back in the Islands again, and we look forward till the next time we meet again!

Great to see the folks who were able to make it out to our Plocking at Formaggio’s this past Saturday night. As always appreciate Scott Carey playing the song’s we want to hear, and the good company!
Our November outing will deviate from the usually end of the month date due to the holiday weekend and also because we happen to have special guest musician Rob Mehl on Island!
Rob, is a Trop Rock musician out of Southern California who spent time in the Islands growing up, plays a blend of Beach, Island and Hawaiian Music has recorded eight cd’s, play’s MOTM every year, tour’s the entire country and is one of the nicest guy’s you’ll ever meet!

As usual a big Mahalo to Jeff and Angie, owner’s of Cha Cha’s for sharing the back lanai with us and booking Rob Mehl, and to Jeff Eck for setting it all up! Rob put on a fantastic performance, we really appreciate his willingness to play a couple extra hours and look forward to seeinim the next time he’s on Island or down in the Key’s! Aloha
Dec 13th, 2014 Pau Hana Christmas Party
Great time at the annual Pau Hana Christmas Party this past Saturday night at the 3/4 Time Bar in Makakilo. It was great to see some new members show up for the event and as well as old members who are back in the Islands. The “Crown Royal” Gift Boxes appeared to be the popular gift of the night for the “White Elephant” game, with several of them popping up under the tree and getting passed around! We had a fantastic spread of appetizers and desserts, plenty of “Boat Drinks”, some pretty potent Ye Ol Grog and a beautiful sunset. Mahalo to our entertainer Scott Carey for putting on an incredible show with some great crowd participation. Just a reminder that it’s time for club membership dues again for everyone except those folks who have joined since Aug 2014. Look forward to seeing all again in 2015, have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year’s!
