It looks like it’s confirmed, the group that put the “O” in O-pop, Rinken Band, will be performing a free, wait, let me say that again, FREE (yes, doesn’t it look better emphasized and bold?) concert in Honolulu on Saturday, September 1, 2007. Opening for them will be “Hawaii’s Largest Bon Dance” (yeah, I wish it were Tink Tink too) and Rinken and his group will perform a 1-1/2 hour set from 8pm to 9:30pm. More information can be found on HUOA’s Okinawan Festival website.
And if you don’t own any of the group’s albums yet (with more than 10 in their discography, how can you not?), a few of them are available at the iTunes Store over here and over here. If you know me IRL, I’ll make you a mix so give me the word and it’s yours. 😉
