- Bump City Hawaii will be the main-stage act at the 4th of July concert at the Waikoloa Bowl tomorrow starting at 6:30PM. Bump City will play a full concert and will be the musical accompaniment to the fireworks display at 8:00PM. Come to the Queens Shops earlier in the day to see even more of Duncan Bamsey. 3 gigs that day! Salsa Latinos at 12:30 QS, Generous Thieves at 5:00 QS and of course Bump City at 6:30 the amphitheater. Ranae, my wife, will be dancing hula at the same time...similar location at Lava Lava Beach Club from 6-8.... She will be able to hear Bump City across the lava field :) Although Bump City will be performing live with the fireworks, we also recorded the 12minute funk/patriotic arrangement that goes with the fireworks as a track that 7 different radio stations will be broadcasting. This way will people watching the firework display throughout West Hawaii can hear Bump City. These are photos EMotionGalleries took of the recording session with Michael Suprenant (Bump City drummer) at Michael's recording studio in their family barn.

For the second year in a row Bump City Hawaii has been chosen to headline at the Kona Brewers Festival. This is an incredible event on the island and I felt it would be fun to start my blog with this performance. Fun, sun, brews, and funk music.
