Sad to hear of the passing of Dan Fogelberg. I first presented Dan 30 years ago this month at the Waikiki Shell with his opening act - Keola and Kapono Beamer. Bill McPherson wrote a very complimentary review for the popular publication Sunbums, noting that Keola and Kapono introduced a new song, publicly performed for the first time: Honolulu City Lights. They also dedicated their encore song In The Real Old Style to their mom, Nona, who was seated in the front row ...

Bill goes on to write about Dan’s hour-and-40-minute one-man show and his jam with guest, flutist Tim Weisberg. The review ends, “The evening was a deluxe high. What can I say, except ‘Thank you Dan Fogelberg and thank you Tom Moffatt.’” Thanks Bill - and thank you, Dan, for many fond memories ...

After 30 years as a professional musician, composer and recording artist, Kapono Beamer has chosen what he calls an encore career in real estate with Prudential Locations - Hawaii’s oldest and largest real estate company. Best of luck, Kapono, and don’t lay down that guitar! ...
