Honolulu : In other news from the islands, Kauai's up and coming sensation Aldrine Guerrero has signed a two album deal with Capitol Records. We spoke with Capitol's Mitch Harbinger about what to expect from the new partnership. "We plan to vitalize and grow Aldrine's popularity on a major scale, we'll be moving in a more mainstream direction incorporating dance as well as concentrating on his guitar talents to attract a wider audience"

:eek: What is this dance stuff about?

Sounds cool though, dude's got skillz. I'm sure whatever instrumentation he uses or whatever genere, it'll be righteous.

I didn't read NO UKULELE. I read that there will be guitar incorporation.

We asked Mr. Harbinger if we could expect to see Aldrine's talent on the ukulele to be showcased on either album." We intend to put the ukulele aside for now, we realize it's appeal in the islands but our intention is to get this young talent popularized on the mainland as well as on the islands"



What kind of crazy day is this?

Hey, if this is what Aldrine wants to do, respect it. He's played guitar on youtube a few times and definitely has the talent. I'd be sad to see him turn away from this huge uke movement he helped create, but that's up to him.

And you didn't think UU could contain him forever, did you? He's a burning fireball of talent. Puremar... I mean Aaron could continue the video lessons. Haha. But then he's probably going to get swept away by a record label too.

Meh I think the guitar choice was mainly from the record company...but what do i know lol and i have seen some of those videos of him playing guitar, they seem to be on his old account? and I think we all knew the day would come when Aldrine or as his new Stage name will be Alddy G got discovered I think everyone of us here is gonna hate letting him go, but all know it was bound to happen lol he is just too talented lol at least i can say i knew him before he was famous hahaha. Well to go more along with the thread topic(sorry eric lol) I agree I really hope there is at least SOME uke collaborated into his new album. =)
Cant wait for the Tour Aldrine!!! Maybe finally I will get to see you and Jake play together like iv been asking forever! haha or Jason Mraz? i can see yal making a CD together haha.

-One of your many fans Aldrine, Seth

The antics have begun already?! And it's only 7:45 pm in Hawaii! Haha.

But nah, no worries. Aldrine is pretty good on guitar too. He just doesn't make too many videos of him on guitar...the one that stands out in my mind is his CMJ vid. But he's actually rather good on the "big ukulele"

Well... You know what they say - APRIL showers bring May flowers. Sounds like this day is the FIRST day of the rest of Aldrine's life. Don't be sad that he has to start his new career on guitar - he'd be a FOOL to allow the record company to keep him away from the uke forever!

Honolulu : Capitol records executive Mitch Harbinger was arrested last night. Apparently Mr. Harbinger has been on recuperative leave here in Waikiki after suffering from an episode of delusional behavior in Los Angeles. The record executive was apprehended after a report of a man wearing nothing but a fedora was seen on Waikiki beach. Officers arriving at the scene found Mr. Harbinger swinging a live rooster from the headstock of an ukulele and repeatedly screaming "Stop the madness" as shocked beach goers looked on.
Honolulu police report that the perpetrator has been hospitalized and is under observation.




Wonder how he caught that rooster?
