Live On Oahu

We have on Oahu some of the best DJs in the Pacific. Not many dancers complain about the music except those the are not interested in LAGS. (the latest and greatest syndrome) which is part and parcel of being a good DJ. Keeping up with the latest. There are DJs in all in our neighbor islands.

"Fortunately in our dance world, there is no time limit to make changes. We can start whenever we want. We can change or stay the same - there are no rules."

For the artists in our midst, live music is the way of the future and they have many fans on Oahu. Just that most of the fans keep it a secret and will not tell us. The music industry, as a whole, continues its slow implosion, revenues from live music festivals continue to break records. That’s in part because many listeners and dancers just like live music.

Many musicians give splendid performances when they perform in front of an audience, And specially when they know many of the customers personally. This idea contradicts some research in music performance studies, in which the presence of the audience has often treated as a distractor or noise. Not on Oahu.

Psychological theories suggest that people prefer average faces, voices, and melodies because they’re easier to process. While some studies show that listeners like mundane music, others demonstrate that both listeners and dancers value individuality when it comes to our musicians. And the oldies but goodies are still coming out ahead.
