The Moth – True Stories Told Live

An evening of storytelling from the producers of the popular Moth Podcast and Radio Hour. The Moth is true stories, told live and without notes. Since its founding, The Moth has presented more than fifteen thousand stories, told live and without notes, to standing-room-only crowds worldwide. The group celebrates the ability of stories to honor both the diversity and commonality of human experience, and to satisfy a vital human need for connection. It seeks to present recognized storytellers among established and emerging writers, performers and artists and to encourage storytelling among communities whose stories often go unheard. The Moth began on a back porch in small-town Georgia, where our founder—poet and best-selling novelist George Dawes Green— would spend sultry summer evenings swapping spellbinding tales with a small circle of friends. There was a hole in the screen, which let in moths that were attracted to the light, and the group started calling themselves “The Moths.” When he moved to New York City, George wanted to recreate the feeling of those nights in his adopted city. The first New York Moth event was held in George’s living room. But word spread fast, and the events soon moved to cafes and clubs throughout the city—and soon to popular venues throughout the country and beyond.

Neil Sedaka Music Without Borders

Singer. Songwriter. Composer. Pianist. Author. Neil Sedaka’s impressive sixty year

career ranges from being one of the first teen pop sensations of the 50’s, a tunesmith for

himself and other artists in the 60’s, an international superstar in the 70’s, remaining a

constant force in writing and performing presently. This is all thanks to the countless songs

he has written, performed, and produced that continue to inspire artists and audiences around the world.

The accolades showered on Neil Sedaka have been numerous. Sedaka has been

inducted into the Songwriter's Hall of Fame, has had a street named after him in his

hometown of Brooklyn, and was given a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Inspired by his grandchildren, Neil released “Waking Up is Hard to Do”, a

collection of Neil Sedaka Hits that have been reinvented as children’s songs. “Waking Up is Hard to Do” was a family collaboration, in which Neil’s son Marc adapted four of his

father’s classic songs, and Neil’s then five-year-old granddaughters made their recording

debut as his backup vocalists. Since the release of the CD, Imagine Publishing has begun

releasing a series of books based on these songs. In September 2010 saw the release of

"Waking Up Is Hard to Do". Its follow up, "Dinosaur Pet", featuring Marc's new lyric to

"Calendar Girl", peaked at #3 on The New York Times Bestseller List.

Neil has returned to his classical roots, composing his first symphonic piece “Joie De

Vivre”, and his first piano concerto “Manhattan Intermezzo”. Neil recorded these two

pieces with the Philharmonia Orchestra of London at the famed Air Studios in London.

“Manhattan Intermezzo” was released on 2013’s studio album “The Real Neil”, with Neil as

the soloist. Renowned pianist Jeffery Biegel recorded the concerto with The Brown

University Orchestra in 2016, which was released on Naxos’ “Manhattan Intermezzo:

American and British Works for Piano and Orchestra”, which also included the works of

Keith Emerson, Duke Ellington & George Gershwin.

“I Do It For Applause”, Neil’s latest studio album of twelve new Sedaka songs and

the official release of “Joie De Vivre”. “The album is the culmination of sixty-four years of

writing", says Neil. "This is a gift I was born with. My main objective is to always top the last collection, raise the bar and reinvent Neil Sedaka."

A comedian, actor, and writer, Patton Oswalt continues to find success in all areas of entertainment. From his award-winning comedy specials to his many memorable film roles and guest appearances on his favorite TV shows (including “Parks and Recreation,” for which he received a TV Critics Choice Award), Oswalt continues to choose work that inspires him and entertains audiences. 

 

He recently starred as ‘Principal Durbin’ on the NBC comedy ”A.P. Bio,” produced by Seth Meyers, Mike O’Brien, and Lorne Michaels, and voices the titular character on the hit SYFY series “Happy!”.   This summer, Oswalt served as the lead voice of ‘Max the dog’ in THE SECRET LIFE OF PETS 2.

 

He provided the voice for ‘Remy’, the rat, in Pixar’s Oscar-winning RATATOUILLE, and has voiced characters on TV shows such as “Archer,” “BoJack Horseman,” “The Simpsons,” “Bob’s Burgers,” “Aqua Teen Hunger Force,” and “Word Girl.”  He is also the narrator on ABC’s hit comedy “The Goldbergs.”

 

Oswalt has appeared in many films, including THE SECRET LIFE OF WALTER MITTY, with Ben Stiller, Steven Soderbergh’s THE INFORMANT, alongside Seth Rogen in OBSERVE AND REPORT, in Paul Thomas Anderson’s MAGNOLIA, ZOOLANDER, STARSKY AND HUTCH, and RENO 911!: MIAMI, among many others.

Oswalt recently received Grammy and Emmy nominations for his Netflix special “Annihilation,” which received critical acclaim as he addresses his own devastating loss and dealing with the unexplainable, while making it all painfully funny.  In 2016, he won the Emmy for ‘Outstanding Writing for a Variety Special’ for his sixth comedy special “Talking for Clapping” (Netflix) and a Grammy Award in 2017 for his comedy album of the same name.  

 

Oswalt was nominated for a Critics Choice Award for his performance in Jason Reitman’s film YOUNG ADULT, starring opposite Charlize Theron.

As a comedian, Oswalt has shot seven TV specials and released six critically acclaimed albums, including his Grammy-winning Talking for Clapping (which the one-hour special of the same name earned him an Emmy) and Grammy-nominated Tragedy Plus Comedy Equals Time that debuted in 2014. Finest Hour also received a Grammy nomination for “Best Comedy Album,” as well as a Showtime one-hour special of the same name. In 2009, Patton received his first Grammy nomination for his album My Weakness Is Strong (Warner Brothers Records).

 

Oswalt starred in The Comedians of Comedy, which was shot as an independent feature film, a TV series and a long running tour. He tours regularly and extensively, headlining both in the United States, Canada, and the UK. Oswalt also has a regular, bi-monthly show at the new Largo at the Coronet Theater in Los Angeles.

 

Both of his published books Zombie Spaceship Wasteland (2011) and Silver Screen Fiend (2015) are New York Times Best Sellers.   Last year, Oswalt helped publish his late wife Michelle McNamara’s true-crime book I’ll Be Gone in the Dark (which debuted No. 1 on the New York Times Best Seller List in March 2018) and he’ll executive produce the upcoming HBO docuseries based on the book about the Golden State Killer.

Acoustic Hot Tuna

Celebrating 50 Years

Friday, July 5, 2019 at 8:00 PM at the Hawaii Theatre

Hot Tuna Music Without Borders

Back by popular demand
It’s coming around again on the guitar…and on the stage.. !

Hot Tuna, Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady, perform with a well-honed and solid power – always in the groove from their years of experience and mutual inspiration. Started as a side project during Jefferson Airplane days, the constant, the very definition of Hot Tuna, has always been Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady. The two boyhood pals have never wavered in one of the most enduring friendships in Rock history.

From their days playing together as teenagers in the Washington, DC area, through years of inventive psychedelic rock in San Francisco (1996 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductees), to their current acoustic and electric blues sound, no one has more consistently led American music for the last 50 years than Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady, the founders and continuing core members of Hot Tuna. At the 2016 Grammys, Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady were honored with Lifetime Achievement Awards.

“Jorma Kaukonen is a force in American music, equally adept at fingerpicked acoustic folk and blues as he is at wailing on an electric.”  – Acoustic Guitar.

Guitarist and vocalist, Jorma Kaukonen is a highly respected interpreter of roots music, blues, Americana, and popular rock-and-roll.  Jorma’s repertoire goes far beyond psychedelic rock; he is a music legend and one of the finest singer-songwriters in music. Jorma tours the world bringing his unique styling to old blues while writing new songs of weight and dimension.

“Jack Casady is virtually unparalleled–and yet he has one of the most truly unique electric-bass voices in rock…he can melt into a supportive role but when opportunity knocks, he bursts forth with creative lines–both simple and ornate–that are unlike any you’ve heard”  – Premier Guitar

     One of the most unique innovators in the sixty-year history of the bass guitar, Jack Casady made his sweeping melodic mark helping to create the “San Francisco Sound” with legendary rock group Jefferson Airplane. Jack went on to track with Jimi Hendrix, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Warren Zevon, members of the Grateful Dead, John Lee Hooker, and Gov’t Mule. Casady, regarded as one of rock’s greatest bassists, is certainly one of its most original.
