    Great intimate turnout! E komo mai to couple newbies from Indiana and South Chicago Heights. One of our newcomers is of Hawaiian ways and paddles the Molokai Channel each year, lives among the Hawaiian community. Awesome! We opened the evening with "When The Saints Go Marching In" in honor of Fat Tues, and played from our Hawaiian and Tin Pan Alley songbooks. And many thanks to Sheilia for the homemade Shrimp Bisque. Mmmm!
