Bill Tapia's 100th Birthday Celebration

Hawaiian and Jazz entertainer, Bill Tapia will be headlining his own 100th Birthday Celebration and Show with various performers at the lavish, art deco Warner Grand Theatre in San Pedro, California on Sunday, November 18th. Bill's music career spans over 85 years and he continues to perform, tour, record and teach at 99 years young! It is safe to say that he is today's oldest living professional musician.
This post isn't so much to inform you of his upcoming event since I know most of you fall outside of the Southern California region, but I wanted to be sure to introduce you to this inspirational, charming gentleman, his life and music. Many of you may already know of Bill, many of you may not, but I hope you take the time to check out the following links which only begin to scratch the surface. With his sharp mind, quick wit and knack for storytelling you can easily be locked in for hours!
