Everyone Can Help
Maui was my home for many years.
What is going on there is a lot more personal than usual, I’ll make this short.
If you are wondering what you can do to help … Go Here.

Just One Story
I met Avi Ronen a few times whilst living on the island, he being a professional musician that has called Maui his home for a long time, me being someone who made it his business to connect and meet with ‘the musician class’ on the island.
This is his post on Facebook.
Our house is gone
All the beautiful memories
All my guitars over a hundred
All gone lines of truss rods standing
Like sad soldiers my amps pedals ￼
All the custom guitars I’ve build and kept
All the acoustic guitars that KP made for me all gone
I’m so devastated beyond words
my girls are great stronger than me
I’m so sad
Our town looks insane it’s so horrible
The only thing that’s left in lahaina town is my shop still standing
I don’t even know what to do next
I’m so devastated
So many lives lost in our town
The damage is absolutely insane
Looks like an atomic bomb blew up in lahaina
It’s so sad heartbreaking
Sorry I had to share this
I want to wish peace and love to everyone we are so heart broken over our sweet town
My house all the memories
And all my guitars so heart breaking
