Sweet Hollywaiians

"Sweet Hollywaiians" are amazing hot string band in Japan and play '20s,'30s hawaiian,swing,ragtime,blues,italian and calypso music.... Hollywood style!!
They respect the string virtuosos like Sol Hoopii,Roy Smeck,Eddie Lang,Carl Kress,Giovanni Vicari and play many many instruments......Guitar,Hawaiian Steel Guitar,Ukulele,Mandolin,Mandola,Banjo and Bass.
When you listen to their sound,you will be really very impressed by their level of musicianship, clever arrangements and feel for playing the '20s,'30s music.These guys are terrific!!

"The Sweet Hollywaiians have probably the best feel for this 20's music of any string band working today. They manage the rare feat of sounding relaxed even when their playing is hot, are top notch musicians with tasteful arrangements and a full, rich, warm sound. Plus, they have a nice gamut of tunes, from King Nawahi to Giovanni Vicari to Bobby Leecan. See them live, if you can, for an unforgettable experience. If you can't, buy their Cds!"

"I have listened to "Sweet Hollywaiians" and found the music excellent,exactly to my taste! I was surprised how good the music was,in fact!!"
~ Robert Crumb

"If I was to order my favorite choices from the Victor Record Catalog 1927, that stack of shellac 78 rpms would have sounded like this! Tom Marion and the Sweet Hollywaiians have lovingly and skillfully rendered a choice selection of Hawaiian, Italian, Tinpan Alley and more...
my heartfelt praise and appreciation for making beautiful old music live long."
