….were a great combo. In fact, Higher Ground was created for people like us to watch performers like Kalei, enjoy some food, drink, and appreciate the goodness of life. As they say,” it doesn’t get much better than this”.
My wife, Jennifer, was weary of the idea, but once I pulled the trigger she played a huge role in the design and menu. Jenn is a great decorator and overall visionary of space. It was almost surreal at times,in a beautiful, tuned room with a great PA system and gifted sound man.
Anyone could be on stage on Tuesday and Wednesday, for good or bad, it was its own community and we all had a common goal~ to enjoy life.
People still talk about Higher Ground and reminisce about the incredible experiences we all had during that time. For me, at this point, Higher Ground seems like a long time ago. But bouncing these videos, I think of the power this space had. I also thank technology for documenting moments that can be appreciated forever. Like this one! Kalei is Awesome. He is not striving for showmanship, but the music flows through him. He’s a humble guy, and yet definitely has a deep soul to hold as much emotion and love as you can hear in his music. Keep a look out for this kid. He is consistently compelling!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=47iZr9q51H4
