Jim “Kimo” West at Proctors: Ticket Giveaway

Proctors has a concert coming up on Saturday September 17 with Jim “Kimo” West to help say goodbye to summer. Proctor’s has been nice enough to offer us a pair of tickets to give away.

Best known as long-time guitarist for the worldʻs most successful musical comedy artist, “Weird Al” Yankovic, Jim “Kimo” West is regarded as one of the world’s foremost “ki ho’alu” or Hawaiian “slack key” guitar artists.

Kimo’s work with Yankovic has earned 4 Grammys (and 9 more nominations), appearances on nearly every late-night talk show, and their most recent CD, “Mandatory Fun,” debuted at #1 on Billboard. (Plus, Kimo, Al and the rest of the band were on The Simpsons!)
