Glen Sobel: "Big happy new years to everyone! Last night in Maui we had our most diverse line up yet- I was in the house band along w/ Chuck Garric, Damon Johnson & Nita Strauss for Shep Gordon's annual benefit. We backed up Steven Tyler, Nuno Bettancourt, Weird Al, Sarah Maclachlan, Dexter & Noodles from The Offspring, Pat Simmons/Michael McDonald from Doobie Bros, Ray Benson (Asleep At the Wheel), Bob Rock & of course the boss man Alice. We rocked many of their originals as well as covers. Another truly magical night in Maui, all benefiting the Maui Food Bank."
