Still In Question

Steady as she goes but this blog is still at the bottom of our blogs on Oahu. Comfortably in double digit average hits per day but with only me and my SOS. Think of what could develop if we had one good steady information contributor. Wow, we would have more live music data to share and the hits would go through the ceiling.

"On Oahu, by doubting we can be led to question,
and by questioning we may arrive at the truth."

Fortunately the dancers that love to dance to live music on Oahu, are getting to recognize the basic steps in Social Dancing. Sure.they learn tricks and fancy moves but those are not for everyone. I am even seeing more choreographed basic moves in the Mariachi Bands. The Rock Step and the Chassé, especially now that more dancers are coming into all Latin Music. Anybody ever dance a Latin Waltz?

For sure there will be a Mariachi group forming this year. The normal for years when only as a concert, was four guitars,four violins and four trumpets for a total of about12 people in the band. Later on they found it easier to have three of each. Less Cost but still big crowds to appreciate the music style and they could play anything. Rumba, Cha, Cha Cha etc.

Then in this century, there are more bands and they have come down to two guitars, two violins and two trumpets and they are playing more danceable Latin music. They may be the first group to play strictly Latin for a dancing audience on Oahu. Latin Waltz, Rumba, Cha Cha Cha, Samba and Tango. Times, they are a changing.
