Taimane Gardner plays Waikiki

I was strolling down the street with Mark and Jeannie during the Annual Waikiki Ho’olaulea Block Party when we ran into Taimane Gardner. During each block party in Waikiki there are numerous performers and normally I listen, but keep walking down the street, but this was different. This was special. We stopped and listened and didn't want to leave. Even when we tried to move on, I just couldn't. I needed to hear more. I'm glad we chose to stick around until the end because we were treated her performance called "Led Zeppelin Meets Beethoven". That's the 4th video in this post. Simply beautiful.

She has been called the "
Diamond of Waikiki" and even the "Female Carlos Santana". Check out her website at

Taimane plays at the
Hilton Hawaiian Village Hotel Royal Hawaiian Luau. She plays every Sunday and Wednesday unless she is off island. You can check her updates on her myspace page.

She also has profiles on
Facebook, Soundclick, and a Tribe of Noise.
