THE HONOLULU ZOO CONCERT IS CANCELLED TODAY! Due to the weather conditions, the zoo will be closed today. They will be rescheduling today’s event to next weekend. Also, we made a tentative plan for a HBH potluck get together thingy for tonight as well. POTLUCK IS ALSO CANCELLED. Please stay safe and dry today. Your safety is more important to me than braving the weather. There was already a huge branch that fell from a tree on my street last night. Don’t want things like that to happen to you on the road. Thank you for your understanding. Gina

Just a head’s up abt our Honolulu Zoo concert on Saturday. Due to the extreme high winds being forecasted, it is possible the Honolulu Zoo event will be cancelled. I will keep you posted as I get information. If you find out any information regarding a zoo closure tmrw, please respond to this mesg thread. For now we will carry on as if the concert is still on. When: 12/21/19 Call time: 12:00pm Downbeat: 12:30pm or around there anyway Attire: Aloha / Christmas Please bring your music and stands and clothespins or something to help hold down your music from the wind. Getting into the zoo requires a check-in at the front entrance. They have your names there so if you didn’t give me your name and are playing, I need to get it from you NOW. That is all. I think. If I forgot anything, which I’m sure I did cuz I always do, please add. Thanks, Gina

Good afternoon HBH ppls, There will be no rehearsal tonight 8/29/19. A couple of last minute situations came up so it would just be a lot easier to just cancel rehearsal. Thank you and see you next Thursday, Gina... Out...

Hello HBHers, Rehearsal for this Thursday, August 1, has been cancelled. Same reason as last time, Ben and I have a gig with another band. And a heads up, if you’re available on Sunday, August 18, we’ll be having a housewarming party (or whatever you wanna call it) at Daniel’s “new” house. More info to come. I am in the process of getting us more concerts to perform. More to follow on that too as I get updated contacts with the events ppl. Sorry for the lack of concerts. It’s really hard to explain what was going on but I’m sort of functional again. Anyway, I think that’s all... Thank you, Gina

Hello HBHers, I am cancelling rehearsal tonight (7/18/19). Is that today’s date? I didn’t check. I’m guessing. I have a gig with the Oahu College Band tonight during the same time as HBH rehearsal. Since Thursday rehearsals are bad for the most of you anyway, it’s better I cancel since half of our members will be at this gig. Yeah. That’s how many HBH members can’t do Thursdays. We’re now averaging 4 ppl per rehearsal. Anyway, have a good Thursday. Rest up and eat some good food or throw a party or eat a ginormous bowl of ramen tonight. Thanks, Gina, your idiotic clarinet playing loser

Good afternoon HBHers, There is no rehearsal tonight (June 27). The orchestra room is off limits tonight due to waxing of the floors. Next week is July 4 so we won’t have rehearsal next week either. Also if you don’t plan on playing with us during the summer, please return your music folders. Most of what we have in our folders are our originals. We kind of don’t really have a copy machine... Thanks and see you when we resume rehearsals on July 11.

Good morning HBHers! Just a reminder that rehearsals will be restarting tonight at 7:30pm. Thursday. At Kalani High School. In room J1. Also if you don’t plan on playing with us during the summer, please return your music folders. Most of what we have in our folders are our originals. We kind of don’t really have a copy machine... If you have previously volunteered yourself to help with various HBH duties, please let me know if you will be continuing to do so. Hope to see you tonight! Thanks, Gina

Good afternoon HBHers, We have decided that the best day for HBH rehearsals will be on Thursday nights. Location and time are still the same: Kalani HS orchestra room at 7:30pm to 9:00pm. There will be a hula halau using the room occasionally prior to our rehearsals but they should be out of the room by 7:00pm. Thank you for your patience. We will start our Thursday rehearsals on June 13, 2019. There is no rehearsal tonight or this coming Thursday. If you did not receive prior emails, Sundays are now out and this Thursday the room will be occupied by another group. Sorry again for all the confusion. I’m always confused. LOL. Thank you, Gina, bleah.

Good afternoon HBHers, Just another update on our rehearsal changes. Originally we were discussing a possible switch to Wednesday nights. However after a short meeting today, we found it does not work as well as we thought it would. We are now looking at Thursday nights instead at our usual rehearsal time (7:30pm to 9:00pm). This again is not official. We do however need to switch rehearsal days starting in June. I will send out a final email regarding our chosen rehearsal day. We just have to make sure the orchestra room is available. Please let me know if you have any questions. I know a lot of things have been up in the air recently. We are slowly working to resolve everything. Thank you for your understanding, Gina, your super crazy tired and stressed out with life HBH clarinet playing weirdo.

Hi. I have made the decision myself to have tmrw’s rehearsal (5/12/19) cancelled due to Mother’s Day stuff. Many of you txted me today abt missing rehearsal tmrw anyway cuz of Mother’s Day dinners. Apologies to Daniel for not talking with you abt this first. Thank you, Gina

Good evening HBHers, We became aware tonight of some unexpected situations that may require us to change rehearsal days to Wednesdays. This is not the official word just yet, but it is possible we might need to do this starting in June. Also if you are planning on coming with us on the Japan trip, we need at least 10 ppl to get our grp rate. I sent the information in a prior email. We currently have 5. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. I make more sense when I have caffeine in my system though... Thanks, Gina, the person who is debating the future of this one particular reed sitting on my clarinet case...

Hi HBHers, Due to the crazy cold and windy and rainy weather and power outages and your safety frm flying debris and fallen trees and flooding and tornado and tsunami and earthquakes, I’ve decided to cancel HBH rehearsal tonight (2/10/19). See you next Sunday and stay warm and be safe tonight. Thanks, Gina, who is all wet and gross from being out in the weather for an ukulele performance.

HBHers, just a small reminder... If you have the HBH music folder with you and are not planning to attend 2 or more rehearsals consecutively, could you please pass the music off to someone who is? We usually have only one copy of each part that are distributed in each folder. We also do clean out music that don’t need to be in our folders to be filed, such as our Christmas music and we’ve been missing quite a few parts. Thank you. Hope to see you all at our next rehearsal.
