From sweet and smooth classics, to new names, to old names with new music...the focus here, is to shine a little light on some damn fine music.

I'll find it. You can listen, review, or tell me I wouldn't know good music if it kicked me in the ass. I personally don't give a shit.

Jack Johnson: Hawaii Ain't Just Hula Girls

Didn't you always wonder what those sun-drenched hot surfer dudes did when they grew up? Well, sometimes they realize their true calling. Such is the case with the taste of the day.

"we used to laugh a lot, but only because we thought that everything good always would remain"

Jack Johnson was born, raised and still lives in Hawaii. Surfing was in his blood and if not for a surfing accident, his path may have been different. College brought a degree in Film and eventually music overtook all else and a career was born.

Five studio albums later, Jack Johnson has established himself with featured songs in film and a devotion to the environment and charitable causes.

With a sound that blends some funk, reggae, pop and his Hawaiian influences, Jack Johnson has a real easy sound to listen to.

Take a seat, try to imagine a cool tropical breeze and enjoy some sounds from a unique and gifted singer-songwriter.

"Mud Football"
"Bubble Toes"
"Banana Pancakes"
"Upside Down"
"Better Together"
