The Grouch & Scarub SOuLeD OUT

The Living Legend's Grouch and Scarub took Maui by storm this weekend with an amazing, sold out show.

As luck would have it, the show fell on my 28th birthday. My birthday was made even sweeter when I received a text early in the day, from Grouch, saying I was on the list for the night. This would have been enough, but, much to my surprise, Grouch had something up his sleeve.
Grouch introduced me to the crowd...

He then proceeded to lead the Casanova's crowd in singing Happy Birthday to me.

It may have been one of the most amazing feelings of my life.

An amazing friend

I'm pretty sure everyone left with a smile on their face. With a line that stretched for two blocks, anyone who got their late was surely kicking themselves.

Mick Boogie – 93 Til’ Infinity Mix… Inspired by NBA JAM (Mixtape)

To accompany the release of the new NBA Jam, Mick Boogie threw together this mixtape with Dime, MAJOR, Motivation and HOMAGE celebrate the game’s legacy with classic remixes from the ’90s.

NYC-based Mick Boogie, known for his eclectic DJ sets and amazing mixtapes, is also an avid basketball fan and a video game junkie. With the recent return of the classic 90’s arcade game NBA JAM (now refreshed and remixed for 2010), Mick was inspired to put together a mixtape of classic and rare 90’s remixes that serve as the soundtrack to where we were back in the day. Being that NBA JAM dropped in 1993… Mick’s decision to call the mix “93 Til’ Infinity” was the only appropriate choice!

In addition to the mixtape, Mick collaborated with vintage t-shirt designers Homage to create a limited edition NBA JAM/93 Til Infinity inspired tee to celebrate the release of this mix and the videogame. You can find the shirt here.

Our Record Store

You may already know (and may not care) that be Bahay Boys HQ is right in the heart of Requests Music, Maui's only record store still standing. I put together a little video with my new Canon t2i, for our Facebook page. The video offers up a tiny glimpse of store we so proudly call home. This is mostly to get DJs and record junkies salivating at our tasty record room. If you're ever in Maui, make it a stop.
