Nice to meet you, Mr. President - November 2011

It was a whirlwind day of media interviews, security clearances, working with the Secret Service and getting everything set for the show. John performed at the beautiful new Aulani resort on Oahu, for dignitaries including Governor Neil Abercrombie, Lt. Governor Brian Schatz, various senators and chef extraordinaire Alan Wong, who were all there to support Hawaii's own Barack Obama.  John had a great visit with the President after the show and got an official White House photo with him as the cherry on top. Get all the details in this Honolulu Star-Advertiser article on the event. http://www.honolulupulse.com/music/island-style-musician-earns-obama-shaka
