Robert Reed as Cher doing the beat goes on. This was one of Robert's breakout performance. He subsequently did his MFA and has become a seasoned performer. Besides organizing the cabaret night he went through multiple costume changes and skits. We build a cat-walk especially for the night. At the end of the night we had all the performers, musicians and audience jamming and dancing to a life version of walk on the wild side.

A performer of Honolulu's Cherry Blossom Cabaret transformed from George Bush into Hillary Clinton. This is before Obama was nominated.
Dancing outside the gallery during closing night. 5 bands performned, 'For AI', 3rd floor, and Jammarek, all Honolulu, East Side Blues Band, Kauai and Box of Crayons, NYC. 3rd floor played two sets. In between sets I had to repaint the gallery, covering all the brush painting lyrics. A festival of patience indeed.
