Latin music and dance is infiltrating into the outskirts of Oahu, mainly the beach areas. The most prominent at the moment is at Tacos And More in Waianae with "Live Music" in the middle of the week. Of course there is Just Tacos with Salsa on Saturday night in Mililani and it gets packed. There is Salsa at Cholo's on the North Shore and Kapolei is next if they can get the Present Rail Party out of the way. You know what they want. It's the bread, Fred. Millions and millions of dollars in profits. Total cost for the Rail Disaster now going to ten billions dollars. Good thing the people on Oahu are rich and can afford it.

There seems to be some sort of reorganization by groups of professional entertainers to make things easier for the artists and the attendees. If someone knows what they are doing perhaps they would like to share the information with their fellow dancers. Then there is the use of the comments section in every one of our blogs. Instant feedback and easy to use. When I lived in Nanakuli, I got more feedback. Now I realize that I lived in Paradise for eight years.

I also heard about some Mariachis that may come this way. But most things like that are just rumors, nothing concrete. We have a few artists here on this island capable of setting up a good Mariachi sound with just one guitar, one violin and one Trumpet. And with the new Mariachi fans leaning more to dance than just to listen, could be a winner. But what do I know. Others can sure tell me. I'll print it."Opus One" by Tommy Dorsey
I have lately realize that I have had the opportunity more now than when I used to dance - to see the dancers dancing. So many good solid "Social" kine dancers out here. I saw one dancing a foxtrot, with a mixture of foxtrot, and rumba movements, with both the rock step and the square step. Just great! Men making movements that are natural to lead and the women, bless them, are the greatest, and find it easy to follow. That is da reel teeng.
