My Hawaiian Music

My Hawaiian Music
I'm keeping it short and sweet this week, everyone, but I'm still sharing Hawaii.  I posted a link to a Hawaiian Internet Radio station on Friday in the Addoway Meet & Greet group wall on Facebook, which is the best group on Facebook, by the way, and I got a lot of comments about how everyone's favorite was Brother IZ, or how much they loved him.  While yes, I liked his music, he was never one of my favorites, I'm afraid to say.
The biggest advantage to Brother IZ is the fact that he was more commercially successful than probably just about any other Hawaiian musician on the market since Don Ho and with his soothing and easily recognizable voice, it is easy to claim him as your favorite Hawaiian singer.  Let me ask you this:  how many others have you heard to compare hime to?  I bet not many.  Below you will find some YouTube videos of some of my personal favorites.  Enjoy with Aloha and Laughter:

That's just a small sampling of the many I could not find, but they are good ones.  I had to throw in the "I Found One Dolla" one just for fun.
Now visit Tuckerstuff and see what I'm sellin'.

Hi Thomas, IZ has been a favorite for along time for me and I have not experienced too many others. You are right about commercially promoted...when I first heard him on radio I had to buy the CD...then more, more, more. I will come back and click your links later. Thank YOU for picking some that you think us IZ fans might like.

All I can do is dream of Hawaii, I don't imagine I will ever see it. Love to read about it though
