Party with Da Bomb at Pipeline
Hard to believe it's been almost five years since 102.7 Da Bomb exploded on local radio audiences.
The station had a country format back in 2000, when the Gap Band's "You Dropped the Bomb On Me" played non-stop for a couple of days. We soon found out that Kid Leo, Blunt, Krazy K, Ric Havoc and a few others made the jump from another frequency to launch the new station.
Of that original crew, only Leo, Paul Ogata and Sam the Man remain (full disclosure: I was a weekend jock there about three years ago). They'll celebrate with Da Bomb's current staff on Nov. 5, when "Bomb Birthday 5" takes place at Pipeline Cafe.
These parties are always a big deal for the station, and 2005 is no exception. Along with prize giveaways, there will also be performances by Baby Bash, Nino Brown, Mashonda and Brooke Valentine.
Pre-sale tickets are $20, available at all Ticketmaster outlets; be prepared to shell out $25 at the door. Call 296-1027 for more info ...
GOOD NEWS for fans of "The Groove," the weekly party most recently held at the Hyatt Regency Waikiki. After a brief hiatus, it returns this week at a new venue.

Doors open at 10 p.m. tomorrow for the 18-and-over crowd, with free drinks until 11 p.m. for the big kids. Expect the music to sound just like the "Groove Mix at Six" on Hot 93.9, with many of the same DJs spinning ...
IT'S NOT the first or third Saturday of the month, but the swanky "Skyline" party will be in full effect this weekend at the Sheraton Waikiki.
Promoters Flash Hansen and Matty Boy Hazelgrove present a special edition of "Skyline" in honor of the Hawaii International Film Festival, which gets started this weekend. Festival organizers will be on hand with guest filmmakers, and music videos from around the world will be screened throughout the evening.
And don't forget about next weekend's "Skyline," with it's '80s prom theme. Better get moving if you haven't found a date yet for that one ...
