The Aliis formed in 1961 as a musical group representing Hawaii in the U.S. Air Force. After serving our time while stationed at Bolling AFB in Washington D.C. the group joined Don Ho in 1964.
Manny LaGod and with the help of Thyra Abraham, Promotion Director, Frank Mcilquham director and Katherine Mcilquham administrator of non-profit The Rock Club Music Is The Remedy, we are planning to do a reunion concert with the original 5 members of the Aliis. It has been 55 years since the groups inception and the subsequent splitting up in 1973 when I was the first member to leave the group. Monies donated will help travel expenses, hotel and transportation for the group to perform in the greater Los Angeles area.
The Aliis: Showroom entertainers and hit recording artists for two decades. Al Akana, Rudy Aquino , Benny Chong, Manny Lagodlagod and Joe Mundo were the other half of Don Ho & The Aliis at Duke Kahanamoku’s in the 1960s. Carlos Barbosa, LD Cabral, Danny Couch and Bobby King contributed to the group’s success in the ’70s and early ’80s (Don Ho received the Sidney Grayson Award, the predecessor of the current Lifetime Achievement Award, in 1979).
A portion of all proceeds after all expenses have been met will go to The Rock Club Music is the Remedy. This is a 501C non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives and well being of Veterans, at risk youth and other groups through music instructions, education and mentoring.
Donations will also be used for venue, advertising, entertainment and administrative fees.
