ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Recently, I've been performing at several of Southern California's Borders Music & Bookstores to promote my TAHITIAN DREAMS CD as well as my upcoming CD, CHAMORU DREAMS. From these 2 CDs, 6 songs were selected to be featured in an upcoming national television release of the PBS Passport To Adventure's travel series on the South Pacific.

This new CD will be release in the next few weeks and will definitely be available here at CD Baby. Included in CHAMORU DREAMS is the Tahitian favorite "Te Vahine Tahiti" and several new songs in English, Chamorro, Tahitian and French. Samples of some of these new songs may now be heard on my website.

As a lead guitarist, vocalist & songwriter, I have performed at the Disneyland Tomorrowland Buzz Club main stage in Anaheim, California in 2000, 2001 and 2002, as well as in many showrooms & venues throughout Southern California, recently in Tahiti, and on Oahu, Kauai, Maui, Reno, Laughlin, Denver, Las Vegas, Tokyo & Hiroshima, Japan, the Northwestern U.S. and Canada with several of my show groups.

I've played concerts as lead guitarist for Stevie Wonder, and with my previous groups I have opened concerts for the Doobie Brothers, America, Ronnie Laws, Norman Brown, and Spyro Gyra. I am a member of ASCAP and recently released my new CD titled "Tahitian Dreams", a cassette double titled "Mama Mia She's Crazy" and "The Hardest Part". In addition, I have multiple credits on many other recordings with several artists. My newest CD, "Chamoru Dreams" is slated for release in the Summer of 2007.

As lead guitarist & vocalist, I was the bandleader for DaJamBand, PWP, The Pepper Williams Project, and a member of Paul Flynn & Company, Johnny Quest, bandleader for The Class Act, player in Tunesmith as well as with San Diego's old school & funk group, Makai.

In October 2005 I performed with Guam artists Johnny Sablan, Jimmy Dee & Joe McCarrell for the Guam Reunion concert at the Gold Coast Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. While there, I was fortunate to have met again with a childhood friend and now the Governor of the island of Guam, Felix Camacho, and with Guam Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo.

Great GINO VANNELLI covers!!!
To be honest we bought this cd because of the two GINO VANNELLI covers : "I JUST WANNA STOP" and "WHEELS OF LIFE" which we love!!! It's not GINO VANNELLI'S voice but your cover is really, really good... with your own style and with passion for Gino Vannelli's music!!! We enjoy listening to your whole cd and it's a new treasure in our cd collection. We also collect cd's with GINO VANNELLI covers so you will be in our GINO VANNELLI collection too.... Thanks for sharing your voice and talents with the world and we hope you could be at one of the three Gino Vannelli concerts in Las Vegas on 23 or 24 or 25 March 2007. GOOD LUCK with your work for MUSIC!!!
