WHEN DOVES CRY: TRIBUTE TO PRINCE SATURDAY, APRIL 23 at BAR 35

Prince, the legendary provocative singer, songwriter, philanthropist has died. The world is still in shocked and disbelief that he is gone ! I was just having my morning coffee or should I say my mourning coffee when I came across it on the Facebook newsfeed. I needed to confirm it from a trusted source. “No ! This is not true ! It can’t be!” Then I turned on CNN and when his publicist came on the news, “It’s true, Oh no, it’s true!” Prince passed away on Thursday, April 21, 2016 at 10:07 a.m. He was 57 years old.

He was born Prince Rogers Nelson in June 1958 to Mattie Della, a jazz singer, and John L. Nelson, a lyricist and pianist. A music prodigy and provocateur like his parents, he was a gifted musician in everyway and played many instruments, truly a lover of music and a man of passion. It is said “he rewrote the rulebook, forging a synthesis of black funk and white rock that served as a blueprint for cutting-edge music in the ’80s.” “Prince made dance music that rocked and rock music that had a bristling, funky backbone. From the beginning, Prince and his music were androgynous, sly, sexy and provocative.” Known by many for his 1984 album “Purple Rain” and the movie it spawned which transformed Prince from cult icon to superstar. He was named one of Time magazine’s most influential people in the world, collaborating with several artists throughout his career, writing songs like “Nothing compares to you” by Sinead O’Connor, which Prince wrote for his funk band side project, The Family, but the song was never released as a single. He also wrote “Manic Monday” which was made famous by the Bangles and Chaka Khan’s ” I feel for you.” He wrote “The Glamorous Life” by Sheila E, Prince Co-wrote with Madonna, Love song, for Madonna’s 1989 album Like a Prayer and the list goes on. He was constantly writing for love.

Prince championed female musicians throughout his career, among them singer/percussionist Sheila E. His appreciation of women as artist combined with his own androgynous sex appeal, marked the most unique that pop music had seen since David Bowie. At 13 million copies, “Purple Rain” is widely ranked as one of the best albums of all time.
Prince released 39 albums over a span of 37 years, and had five No. 1 singles, including “When Doves Cry,” “Kiss,” and “Let’s Go Crazy.”

Looking for contestants for the 6th Annual MISS VAMP HAWAII 2016

We are now looking for contestants who might be interested in running for this year’s Miss Vamp Hawaii Beauty Pageant.

Miss Vamp Hawaii was created in 2010 and is a yearly production held in October at the Hawaii Theatre to honor the beautiful, creative and unique women living in Hawaii. It is the most unique production to ever grace the Hawaii Theatre stage. Similar to the other pageants, it features the traditional Q & A, a gown costume and talent competition and crowning the winners with sashes, trophies and prizes. However, what’s even more unique to this pageant is “the Moonlight Bathing Lingerie Competition,” the highlight of the evening honoring the moon and everything she stands for, unlike the traditional bathing suit competition.

“Vamp” short for vampires is symbolic of timelessness, a passion that never dies. Age and growing older should never be a factor to hinder growth, development and dreams. Miss Vamp Hawaii is open to all women ranging and starting from 18 years of age and older. It’s for all women, regardless of body type, weight, height, and age. It celebrates all women of the world, from all walks of life, cultures, various backgrounds, nationalities and interest. Miss Vamp Hawaii embraces love and beauty as “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder” and all women are beautiful and inner beauty accentuates outer beauty.

If you are interested in running for this year’s 6th Annual Miss Vamp Hawaii 2016 or know someone who might be interested in running, please send an email to missvamphawaii@gmail.com

About Lana Saldania and Live Star Nation

Having written over 40 songs and serving as the lead vocalist in three bands, it’s safe to say Lana Saldania knows her way around music. Currently the co-host of the popular A Feast of Friends Radio Show on KTUH 90.1 FM, Lana, with her infamously sultry voice, also serves as the Mistress of Ceremonies for the monthly 80s Pop Muzik. Now she’s bringing that voice to a new band: Lana Saldania and Live Star Nation. The group, comprised of a bassist, drummer, and keyboardist, with Lana on lead is a powerhouse original act.

Performing some of Lana’s most popular original music, the band brings the electric recording sounds into a live floor shaking spectrum. If there is one thing Lana knows how to do, is put on a show. Being the producer of the annual Miss Vamp Hawaii Beauty Pageant, the most unique show to ever grace the Hawaii Theater stage, she is a consummate professional of showmanship. Her music is also one of a kind. A blend of euro-rock and urban-electronica, Lana Saldania and Live Star Nation are an act that is both timeless and musically diverse, like the lead singer herself.

John Tavares, also known as JT plays the keyboards, the drums, bass and guitar. With 25 years in music, touring and recording with top island groups, JT is also a song writer, a music producer and
ex-pro skater.

Amos Zollo was born in Waterbury, CT. in 1977. He moved to Hawaii in 1980 and soon after, at the age of five, started piano lessons. Five years later Amos took a liking to the drums and from then on he was hooked. His first live performance happened soon after at the young age of fourteen. Since that time he has performed with many bands in Hawaii both as a dedicated member and a hired hand. Amos hopes to help spread great music around the world while working with great musicians and songwriters.

Ralph F. Glaser, born and raised in Racine, Wisconsin has been a semi-professional musician since starting in club bands as a Lead Singer/Bassist in the 80’s. He’s a former member of Midwest recording and performing bands Rocinante’, Saffire, Social Insects, NuBoys, ÖR. and San Diego based Third Wave ska band GenkideSka. Ralph has also worked semi-professionally as a Singer/Songrwriter/Guitarist getting his start in 1996 playing small venues mainly throughout Southern California. Ralph has had recording contracts with N*Soul/Ecclectica Records (Los Angeles, CA), Soul Joy Records (Austin TX), and did studio work with Digitraxx Studio (San Diego, CA). Ralph has been involved in the Hawai’i music scene since moving to Oahu permanently in 2010 and is a former member of Hawai’i Musician’s Association Local 677.

About Tzana Saldania

Perhaps the embodying definition of a “Fangirl” Tzana Saldania has been hanging out in the nerdy side of the Internet since it was a trend. She is the administrator of one of Tumblr’s top followed Batman blog: http://gotham-knights.tumblr.com

Raised as an only child by her single mother, the mistress of all that is ceremonial, Lana Saldania, Tzana was exposed to more than just comic books and art. A musically dynamic home predestined her to take an early interest in music. Picking up the guitar in middle school and eventually writing her own songs by 17 years old, Tzana found comfort from the pitfalls of teenage angst in the creation of music. Her musical exposure ranges from Bach to the Bee Gees and everything in between making her sound an ethereal hybrid of standard rock chords, occasional punk rock syncopation, and a pop-like vocal.

Currently studying Media Psychology in college, she feels fortunate to have been granted the ability to share her music with an audience and looks forward to seeing just what else she can write as an equally angst ridden college student.

Thank you to Miss Vamp Hawaii, Nephilim Halls, Universal Art, Camera Obscura and BAR 35. See you all at BAR 35 on Saturday, May 28, 2016.
