“And you thought it was only in the movies / as you wish all your dreams would come true” (“Fool in the Rain” 1979). This Led Zeppelin tribute concert is not only “sweet refrain / soothes the soul and calms the pain…” for die hard fans of this legendary band, but yours truly has an overwhelmingly grateful interest in that organizers/artists (“all of my love to you!”) are generously dedicating the night to help me pay off medical bills from my little bout with leukemia; so those “shackles of commitment (can fall), in pieces on the ground…” (which will, literally, save my life in a whole new way). “(W)hen they told us we should go / As I turn to you, you smiled at me / How could we say no? / With all the fun to have, to live the dreams we always had…” For silent auction, a Fender guitar has been donated and signed Dave Murray of Iron Maiden (and a signed album and poster!), and Bounty Music has donated two ‘ukulele, autographed by Paula Fuga and Willie K. At the entrance to Mulligans, “the giant step unfolds with guidance from the curving path” (“Achilles Last Stand” 1976), and I’ll see you there for a Zeptember to remember. 808-874-1131; mulligansontheblue.com / mauivents.com
