Boom Booms Band at Maui Earth Day

Today was Earth Day and had a wonderful experience meeting with the members of The Boom Booms Band at University of Hawaii Maui Campus.

I was checking my Twitter Stream and David Fisher had posted that Earth Day activities were taking place at the University of Hawaii Maui campus and the Boom Booms band was there. So I got on a bus with my bicycle headed into town parked my bike on campus and walked over and found the correct room.  The Boom Booms Band members shared  their environmental activism roots, how the band members met in Vancouver BC.  at a tree planting camp and learned about some of their explorations and sustainability support for some of the native tribes in South America and I hope you enjoy the YouTube video that’s featured on this page. The BoomBoom Band had recently played at the Maui Arts and Cultural Center and I’m sorry I missed it They’re a young inspired group and they’ve got a bright future ahead of them. Youtube The musical brotherhood of Vancouver-based band The Boom Booms began in BC’s glamorous tree-planting camps. Planting trees by day and creating and performing music by night for their tree-planting posse was a typical spring season for the childhood friends. Once the season ended, they kept the momentum going by producing their very own neighbourhood block party. The “Boom Boom Block Party” became a summer highlight for East Vancouver residents for four years and raised over $20,000 for organizations such as Environmental Youth Alliance (EYA); Contributing to Lives of Inner City Youth (CLICK); and The Music Tree, a not-for-profit foundation that is dedicated to raising awareness of ecological community projects through fundraising concerts and events. Co-founded by Aaron Ross and supported by The Boom Booms, The Music Tree is committed to “greening” the planet by inspiring people to get involved in community building and self-sustainability.

In 1995 At Maui High Performance Computing Center The Maui Scientific Analysis & Visualization of the Environment Program was first incubated. I was the principal investigator of this independant research project which was a joint development between MHPCC, Silicon Graphics Computers (SGI) & NKO.ORG. Using SGI Cosmo Worlds software, we pioneered the development of Internet based 3D virtual reality GIS based interactive worlds. In 1996 with a network of seven high performance SGI workstations we pioneered development of live streaming MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, Real Video and QuickTime Streaming Server utilizing Kassenna MediaBase software. In Maui 2002 we pioneered and tested the first wireless live streaming video using laptop computers and Maui Sky Fiber's portable 3G wireless device. In Maui we pioneered live streaming video using usb modems from AT&T , Verizon as well as live streaming from iPhone 3 over 3G wireless networks. Today The Maui S.A.V.E. Program has diversified into storm tracking including visualization and analysis of large, memory-intensive gridded data sets such as the National Hurricane Center's wind speed probabilities. I volunteer my services to numerous Disaster Services Organizations.
