    Rumours Nightclub. Flashback to the ‘80s and disco's catchy tunes. I went with friends and had so much FuN! Danced juss like we were in high school on the packed floor. Watched the dudes who were wearing clothes from the seventies and eighties (tight up the yang yangs) trying to pick-up wahines. The old fut chicks was having fun in their mini skirts and low blouses prancing around for anyone. Thing is some scored. ha ha ha

    Wasn't that the Coconut Grove back then? and not related to the one that burned down in LA.

    Don't forget Club C-5 on Hotel St. with crazy owner Min! This was the Jazz Cellar's competitor back in the late 80s early 90s. Think Metallica!!

    Has Jack Cione's Dunes nightclub been mentioned yet? Didnt that turn into Gussie's eventually? They had a naked waiter that was really popular and I think the club had acts as famous as Sammy Davis, Jr. perform there.

    That's the place that Howard Farias of the Sandbox tried to make into a Vegas style supper club after he came back from running off to Vegas, himself. Those two have been in cahoots for years.

    One of the gals who used to work at Bobby McGee's is still a bartender at the W. I used to frequent the WonderLounge and she'd always have her stories about Bobby McGee's!

    Black Rose was:

    Rick - guitar
    garred - guitar
    Allen - singer
    T-Bone - drums
    Weylen - Bass

    I found an old pic of them - if you want I could scan it and post it later ...

    I assume this is not the same "Black Rose" band that sometimes Cher would use during her solo career during the early 80's.

    Min now owns Mall Cafe and wanted my band to play there. She wanted to start to have rock bands again but I passed on the offer. Min is one crazy Korean. She's not afraid of no one and will tell anyone off. If you remember Min moved C-5 to Sand Island Access Rd. between Dancers and Sand Island R & B. One day C-5 burned down and that was the last of C-5.

    Dunes turned into Little Orphan Annies and then Gussie Lamours. Gussie's closed a few years ago to make way for a used car lot.

    The Swing Club on Hotel St. was fun, but it was a great jazz club long long ago.

    Much more recently, The Fox and Hound at the Discovery Bay's street level spot across from the Ilikai was one of the very last rock clubs, w/good drink deals.

    The Sugar Bar out here in Waialua was the best on the N. shore in the 90s.

    T-Bone sure is popular!

    I doubt you know me - I was just a groupie ...
    But, here's a pic of me, my friend, and T-Bone's old girlfriend (also from back in the day!):

    Sadly The Jazz Cellar closed it's doors on December 31th, 2007. Heine Fountain sold the club. I was invited by Heine for the Dec. 30th Employee Night invitation only party at the Jazz Cellar. It was good to see the old employees of the Jazz Cellar and of course the musicians that played there. My buddy Les Among of Steepcliff played that night since they opened playing at the Jazz Cellar they closed playing at the Jazz cellar.

    If want to see Min again she's at Mall Cafe on Bethel St. She wants to turn it to a rock club again and called me and my buddy Brian of Broken Glass to play there. After checking the joint out I decided to pass on the offer.

    Behind the Eagle Cafe on Nimitz Hwy. used to be a club/room that had years of great rock shows, but can't remember the name. Reminded me of the infamous Pink's/Garage.
