Mahalo to all the Pau Hana Parrot Heads who joined us for the “Pau Hana Red” Wine Bottling at Oneo in Kailua and the afterparty at Kailua Town Pub. Hopefully everyone was able to take home a bottle or two of the Stag’s Leap Merlot. Thanks to Kevin Taggety and Jeff Eck for providing top notch entertainment the entire remainder of the night at the Pub. Prez Deane and Brahda Dave even joined in for a couple of songs!!! Kevin we hate to see you go, and you’ll be greatly missed by the Pau Hana Parrot Heads. Also would like to thank our new club Secretary Rhonda Marlow for putting together the trivia game, raffle and prizes. Lastly a big Mahalo to the friendly staff at Kailua Town Pub for letting us take over the bar and providing really great service. If you haven’t checked out the food at this place, please stop by and do so…it’s incredible and the beer selection can’t be beat!!!
If anyone needed another ticket for the Buffett Show in December we have four more that are unspoken for. We’re be picking them up from the promoter next week and will pass them out at either the next gathering, Preconcert Party or contact us to make other arrangements for pick up.
Again don’t forget about our ” 5 O’ Clock on the Beach” Tailgate Event at Tiki’s Grill from 1-6pm before the Buffett Show. Please let all your friends and family know where the party is and help us get the word out. We’re working hard to make it the biggest and best Buffett Party in town!!!

January 20 Phlocking at Dixie Grill
The Pau Hana Parrot Heads gathered at one of our favorite watering holes, the “Dixie Grill” in Pearlridge for a Pau Hana Friday event. Twelve members were able to make the flocking and enjoyed some great food and drinks. We even picked up several new members throughout the evening. Thanks again to Patrick and the gang at “Dixie Grill” for letting us play our Buffett and Trop Rock favorites on the PA system, also for their hospitality and great service.
Feb 25th Sunny Jim and Latitude Show at Waikiki Yacht Club
This past Saturday Feb 25 th the Pau Hana Parrot Heads were treated to a fantastic afternoon of live Trop Rock music with James”Sunny Jim”White and Tom and Michelle Becker of “Latitude”. The event was a meeting of several Florida clubs visiting after their “2012 Aloha Cruise” and our local Parrot Head gang at the Waikiki Yacht Club. “Sunny Jim” opened the afternoon with some of his classics as well as tunes off his newest CD. Local artist John Canizzarro followed with a short set of Island Classic’s and a few original’s as well. Next Tom and Michelle took the stage and soon had everyone doing the “Conga Line”…and even did a John Denver request. To finish the evening off Jim, Tom and Michelle performed one final set of 60′s and classic rock that had everyone out on the dance floor!!!
As always with Parrot Heads, it was a “Party with a Purpose”. The 50/50 auction raised $450 for the McKinley High School “Close-Up” program, which takes disadvantaged local student’s on the trip of a lifetime to Washington D.C. and the U.S. Capital each year. A secondary fundraiser for the event was an effort to raise some cash for Pau Hana Trop Rock favorite…Scotty Bryan who recently had his beloved ”Taylor” Guitar stolen after doing a show in Cape Coral FL. After a ticket for the upcoming “Buffett” show was auctioned plus a few donations, nearly $400 was collected to help out Scotty.
A big Mahalo to “Sunny Jim” and Tom and Michelle Becker for providing some really incredible entertainment for our event. We really appreciate having the opportunity to experience some great Southwest Florida sytle Trop Rock that is rarely seen or heard out here in the Islands. Would also like to thank John for coming out sharing some local tunes with us as well. As usual our Yacht Club sponsor Clay Deaver really went all out by setting our club up with one of the best waterfront venues in Waikiki.
March 18th Five O’Clock on the Beach Preconcert Event and USO Fundraiser
We would like to say Mahalo to all those folks who were able to attend our “5 O’Clock on the Beach” Tailgate Event, especially those who helped with preparation, ticket sales and teardown at the end of the day. Sounds like everyone had a good time, enjoyed some great entertainment then finished out the day with a great performance with Jimmy over at the Shell.
The total attendance may have been down a little this year, but still a nice turnout with nearly 160 folks through the door…probably helped keep the drink lines shorter!!! As usual our group “Partied with a Purpose”, raising $600 for USO Hawaii.
Our next potential outing will be the “Run like a Diva” Wahine Half Marathon on Sunday April 1st. We have been asked again this year to run a water station at the event. The turnout for this outing last year was fantastic and much appreciated by the race coordinators. In return for our efforts we’ll accumulate much need man hours and a donation will be made to a charity of our choice by the event.

April 1st “Run like a Dive Water Station” and Fundraiser
The Pau Hana Parrot Heads again supported the annual “Run Like a Diva” Wahine Half Marathon and 5k run this past Sunday morning by setting up and manning the primary water station for the event. We would like to thank each of the 15 club members who showed up at Magic Island bright and early to make preparations for the 6:00 am start time. Our gang kept the refreshments flowing to the thousands of runners who passed through the station four times throughout the morning. The club also provided plenty of encouragement to the racers and blasted out the live tunes throughout the entire morning. Everyone had a great time providing a much needed service for this great event. Probably one of the greatest locations of any Parrot Head charity event in the entire country, like they say “Lucky to Live Hawaii”!!!
A total of 75 man-hours were logged, and a donation of $200 from the “Run Like a Diva” event which will go directly to the “Leeward Women’s Shelter”. Again thanks to all club members who showed up and helped make this event possible!!! Also Mahalo to Karen Bullard who coordinated with the race committee and to Clay Deaver for use of the great sound system. We look forward to seeing everyone at our next outing in late May.
May 12th Trop Rock n Roll Spring Party Cruise
Mahalo to the folks who showed up Saturday night for our Trop Rock n Roll” Cruz off Waikiki. The winds finally died down and our crew pushed off at 5:30 pm and enjoyed a beautiful evening on the “E Sea Rider” cruising off the shores of Waikiki. Some really fantastic views with Diamond Head forward and a gorgeous Ewa sunset aft accompanied by the great Trop Rock tunes of Jimmy Buffett, Jim Morris, Scotty Bryan and many many more and plenty of “Boat Drinks”. A really fantastic evening was enjoyed by all.
A special thanks to “Captain Tiger” for manning the helm and delivering a safe and entertaining trip for all and also to Jordon for her great service and pouring some pretty strong drink’s!!!!
Please remember to put August 25 th on your calendar of events this summer. We’re in the works right now to hold our annual “Late Summer Bash” again this year at “Jimmy Buffett’s at the Beachcomber” but actually use the indoor venue and stage this year.
