Luckily, we found a small record and gift store on Kauai. The clerk didn't know the song, but called friends until she found one that did. And they had the disc! Since then, we have fallen in love with the rest of the album, particulalry Hey Ono. Buy it if you can!"

"A variety of songs and tempos that are melodic, uplifting, finger snappin', and moving. Fun music, yet deeply stirring if you like soaring harmonies and clean music.

I am now buying my second CD by them."
