Our music is a modern jazz view of the several elegant and glorious musical traditions of China. The primary goal of this group is to create an improvisatory music language based on traditional Chinese melodies and nuance through the thematic musical vehicles of such songs as "Horserace, Butterfly Lovers, Dance of the Yi People, Erquan Spring reflecting the Moon and Jasmine Flower" and even mixing in some Chinese jazz pieces from the 1930’s by the father of Chinese popular music, Li Jinhui. Please come out and local support musical innovation.

Onstage    (0 Votes)
Kevin Coleman and the Flat Five each Wednesday at 7:30pm at Onstage

Jazz and Blues arose from common roots in the Black Experience in America. In the middle of the last century Jazz and Blues had a lot in common including musical repertoire and improvisation. For example, repertoire like “Stormy Monday,” “Drifting and Drifting,” and “Parchman Farm.” The music of Kevin Coleman and the Flat Five captures the classic style and repertoire of the West Coast blues and mixes it with improvisation.

West Coast blues speaks not only to the Black Experience but to the many of the problems in contemporary America. Like having no job, having no money, going to the pawnshop, and being in jail. Also it specializes in songs about partners who run around, cheat, lie, and break your heart so is a good choice if you have just been dumped. The music has the instrumentation and rhythms that also allow swing dancing.

Kevin Coleman and the Flat Five have been performing each Wednesday from 7:30 to 10 pm at Onstage Bar on Kapahulu for the last six years. The same musicians have played together for the last six years so the music is tight. There is no Jimi Hendrix or Led Zepplin blues variations. Just the real thing.

The venue is small and is not well kept although the new owners have purchased some tables and painted a wall. The sound system is good and seating limited. It is not a place for fine dresses (other than dance dresses) and certainly not suits. In other words it has the atmosphere of the old roadhouses. ALERT: The air conditioner is working now to cool you down and heated up by Letecia (that is, the Roman goddess of fertility and abundance). Onstage is the perfect place for this music to be played and to do a little West Coast style Swing dancing.
Time: 7:30 PM – 10 PM   Cover:  $0
