YOZA

Yoza took to music early, learning the ukelele at age five. By the time she turned 10, she performed with world-renowned ukelele master, Ray Sakuma, as a "Super Keiki." Not being bound by one instrument, she began playing the saxophone at age 12 with her school's symphonic orchestra. Her accomplishments as a saxophonist gained her a full music scholarship to Hawai'i Pacific University.

In the summer of 2012, Yoza was asked to perform at the Waikiki Shell with Matt Catingub and the Hawai'i Symphony Orchestra. She considered it a huge accomplishment to hear her original music come to life, especially because she didn't have an album out at the time.

In 2013, Yoza released her highly-anticipated debut album, self-titled "Yoza." Yoza was able to get three nominations for her album at the 2014 Na Hoku Hanohano Awards (Hawai'i's version of the GRAMMY® Awards). She took home the award for "R&B Album of the Year."

Yoza met the aquaintance of the very established guitarist, Hanan Rubenstein, whom, while on break from touring with Alicia Keys, agreed to produce an EP consisting of Yoza's fresh new tracks. The EP features a number of established New York musicians, such as Al "Boogie" Carly, Nate Townsley, and Derrik Wright. After a week of recording and mixing in Carriage House Studios, Yoza released her brand new EP, "Prologue," in June 2016.

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.
