1995- I was performing every Wednesday at lunch in East Greenwich, RI for 90 minutes raising money for the local food pantry with a trio called Kuliana. We had the opportunity to open for a National Act at the Odeum Theater In East Greenwich. This trio continued to perform till 2005. I also worked on my original songs with my dear friend David Lydon. Dave is a huge talent, great vocalist, guitar player, writer. We played with a group doing Steely Dan, Michael Franks, Paul Simon, etc. We called it The Royal Scam. We performed with a local Comedian Charlie Hall who would introduce us as the Royal Scum.
