Join us at the Hawaii State Art Museum September 7, 2012 for First Friday 6 PM - 9 PM. The Pacific Fleet Rock Band debuts at the historic No. 1 Capitol Building with audience favorites for September's First Friday celebrations. The band is comprised of 10 superb musicians who combine their talents to entertain audiences around the islands and around the world while representing the United States Pacific Fleet. Friday's set list includes songs from Israel "IZ" Kamakawiwoole, Jason Mraz, Van Morrison, Eddie Floyd and even Lady Gaga.
Fittingly, the Hawaii State Art Museum is the site of the former Armed Services YMCA. "To have our Navy's Pacific Fleet Band perform in a historic building that was once home to our military during the Pacific War makes this First Friday concert even more significant," said Eva Laird Smith, executive director of the Hawaii State Foundation on Culture and the Arts
"We are indeed excited about this incredible venue," said band member MU1 Joseph Muzika. Based at the Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam here on Oahu, the Fleet performs around the Pacific, including at the recent Pacific Friendship gathering in Indonesia.
Members presently participating in the Pacific Fleet Rock Band are as follows: MUC Richard Lindberg; MU1 Joseph Muzika; MU1 Justin Skorupa; MU2 Selina Gentkowski; MU2 Paul O. Collet; MU2 Trevor Shifflett; MU3 Evertt Cencich; MU3 Doug Plander; MU3 Jared Pruitt; MU3 Tyler Sharp; MUSN Jason Andrews.
Galleries are open from 6 to 8:45 p.m. on First Friday. As the museum's supply of chairs are limited, low folding chairs and mats are recommended at the second floor open courtyard, which overlooks the newly opened Sculpture Garden. Don't miss this special treat
New Exhibits - Friday night in the back of the Diamond Head Gallery is BODY OF WORK: INTERPRETATIONSOF THE HUMAN FORM. This exhibition from the Art in Public Places collection, focuses on the human figure, primarily the nude, through portraiture, figure studies, and symbolic representations.
