In The Mix


DisGuyz and Emme
get a Big Apple bite

BACK HOME AFTER spending last week in New York City are Emme Tomimbang and the members of DisGuyz: Calsen Aiwohi, Ian Ayson, Kimo Montgomery, K.J. Ulep and Jason Lent. They were in the Big Apple to film Tomimbang's August episode of "Emme's Island Moments." The upcoming program will focus on Hawaii connections to the Sept. 11 attacks ...

During the course of filming the group held an "Aloha Ceremony" at a firehouse in the Bronx and presented six leis in memory of Hawaii residents that died in the World Trade Center at Ground Zero. DisGuyz also performed their tribute "Our Nation in Song" for two girls who lost their father in the tragedy. The two had choreographed a dance routine to the song and were able to join the guys on stage during a recital on Father's Day. A chicken-skin moment for sure ...

From the "Blink and You Missed It" file: The Brothers Cazimero joined the growing list of Hawaii musicians showing up on television screens last night when their song "Na 'Ale O Ni'ihau" was used on the MTV reality-based show "Sorority Life." The track could be heard about 15 minutes into the hourlong show, which follows a group of women as they go through the sorority rush process at college.

If you missed it, "Sorority Life" repeats Sunday on MTV. The show gets split into two 30-minute chunks, so check program listings for the exact start time. I wonder what Robert and Roland Cazimero thought when they were told one of their songs would be associated with college coeds ...

LOCAL LIVE MUSIC fans need to make plans for Ala Moana Center's Mai Tai Bar tonight and Pipeline Cafe on Thursday. Two months of competition come to an end in the "2002 Mai Tai Rumble," which kicks off at 9 tonight. Facing off in the finals are Cory & Kimo vs. Kim Char Meredith; Reign vs. Common Ground; and Shining Star vs. H2O. As always, there's no cover at the bar, so be ready to throw some 'bows just to order a beer ...

Over at Pipeline, Fil Slash hosts the finals of the "Battle of the Rock Bands." The last four weeks have seen Audist, Living in Question, Steel Toe, Turn off the Stars and Share the Road move one step closer to more than $5,000 in cash and prizes. Doors open at 9 p.m. Call 589-1999 for info.

In the Mix drops Tuesday's and Thursday's in the Star-Bulletin.
