Reflecting Black Friday

Amoeba and I prefer not to go anywhere near a maul mall during the Christmas Shopping season.  Given our druthers, neither of us would have left the house today, but the Honolulu Community Concert band was playing for the kick-off of the official Kahala Mall season.

I figured as long as I had to be there, I might as well scope out a couple of reflections.

Please be sure to BIGGIE for best effect.

Dinner Entertainment?

I suppose some of you are thinking that having a full band play in a fast food place is a bit of commercial overkill — not to mention the lack of space they left for customers ….

It is interesting how photographs change perspectives. Not only was the band not in the fast food restaurant, there was an open air hall between them and the restaurant. The band played Kahala Mall the afternoon of July 4th, and they were on the entertainment platform. However, lots of folks grabbed food from the various restaurants and sat down to enjoy.

Why don’t you enjoy, too? Again, the video quality is bad, but the sound is good!

You are listening to, The St. Louis Blues, by composer William Christopher Handy. This has to be the sexiest march ever written.
