It’s gotta be fiction.” At a recent gathering I was half listening to a story about City Hall and “bumping” and these same thoughts clouded my head.

Hooo, you had me. I mean, you got me. Ahhhhhh. (Wipe a tear from eye). Only it’s true. (Pause). Wait. What? It’s true!? WTF? Really!? Though it reads like something out of Rocky & Bullwinkle, the bump is on the real.

Imagine: it’s sunset, and you’re by the water, the sun sliding gently over the horizon, the waves gently lapping against the shore. It’s nearing dinnertime, and you’re wondering what you’ll have to eat: roasted pork, perhaps, or freshly caught seafood. Plantains and grilled pineapple. A cocktail garnished with an umbrella. After that, you’ll head out for some music, and you wonder what the first notes you’ll hear will be. “Beyond the reef,” you hear as you walk into the venue, the dreamy voice crooning over the beat. You stop and pinch yourself: are you in Honolulu?
Not anymore. Welcome to an evening spent with Hawaii 504: the only original New Orleans Hawaiian band.
