Christopher Yohmei Blasdel and Sasha Bogdanowitsch

From the event description:

Though classically trained in the disciplined tradition of shakuhachi (Japanese end-blown flute), Christopher Yohmei Blasdel uses that background as a launching point for techniques that are hardly conventional. He will be accompanied by pan drum player Sasha Bogdanowitsch, producing music that is both haunting and expressive. 

When: Saturday, Aug. 31, 7:30-10 p.m.
Where: Atherton Performing Arts Studio, 738 Kāheka St.
Price: $15–$25

Martha Reeves Performing Her Classic Hits

From the event description:

Martha Reeves and her backup group, the Vandellas, started out singing behind Marvin Gaye and soon hit the charts with their own trifecta: "Come and Get These Memories," "Love is Like a Heat Wave" and "Quicksand." While best known for up-tempo, hard driving tunes, Reeves' shows are often highlighted by jazzy renderings of Billie Holiday's "God Bless The Child," her driving original blues "Watch Your Back" (both included in her self-produced CD "Home to You") and the perennial showstopper, "Love Makes Me Do Foolish Things."

When: Friday, Aug. 30, 6:30 p.m.
Where: Blue Note Hawaii, 2335 Kalakaua Ave., Honolulu, HI 96815
Price: $45–$65
