CONGRATULATIONS, DAVEY D!: David "Davey D" Daniel's, left, program director of KCCN FM100, Hawaiian 105 KINE and KKNE-AM, was the guest of honor at Saturday's big local music event, the Mass Appeal Big Break concert at the Waikiki Shell. Daniel's was celebrating the release of "Overdrive Live Volume 2," the second compilation of videos from his OC16 local music video show. He partied back stage with Carole Baguio of Pacific Hawaiian Music Distribution, the distributor of the DVD, and Mass Appeal Entertainment President Duane Oyama who produced the concert. Sean Na'auao and Ho'onu'a capped the night with a big scale performance. Word is that the DVD is going to be on the next Billboard magazine Music DVD chart.

HANGIN' WITH PAPA T: Diane Dar met Tim "Papa T" Troxell of B.E.T. backstage at the Big Break concert. B.E.T. was one of the big crowd pleasers of the show. Dar was there to support Chaos, the winner of the recent Big Break battle of the bands contest at Ryan's. The band's prizes included a recording opportunity and being the opening act at Big Break. Chaos plays at On Stage Drinks & Grinds in Kapahulu tomorrow night from 9:30 to 12:30. Call 738-0004 for directions and parking info.

CHO'S BIG SHOW: Margaret Cho proved freedom of speech is alive and well as she entertained an enthusiastic sold-out house at the Blaisdell Concert Hall. President Bush, Laura Bush, Condoleeza Rice, William Hung and Christians were some of the targets of her hilarious X-rated commentary on sex, ethnic and racial stereotypes, gay rights, porn, the Bush Administration and her sex life. Unfortunately, her best material can't be shared here.

THE MAN, THE KID AND OTHER PEOPLE: Sam the Man of 102.7 Da Bomb, left, talked with Charlie Longhi, Sierra Dew, and Da Bomb program director Kid Leo during the IMF Visions/102.7 Da Bomb party at Longhi's Ala Moana. Sam handled the emcee duties while Leo and a table of friends enjoyed the event.

BLACK TO THE FRONT: Sloane Kini, left, and Mapuana Makia made such a fabulous impression in their black dresses that they skipped the line and went straight up to Longhi's where Ian Fernandez welcomed them. Makia is recording tracks for her debut album on Maui this week.
