Tell us a little about your background...
Rockford Holmes began his musical studies at the age of 9, beginning with the clarinet and subsequently the saxophone, oboe and flute. By the age of 15 he was playing professionally
and by 19 on tour with the Eddy Howard Orchestra. He graduated from the University of Hawaii in 1985 with a Bachelor of Music degree in Music Composition, and went on to complete graduate work in Music Theory in 1988. He has been a professional musician in Hawaii since 1977. His extensive list of credits include performances with such greats as Michael McDonald, Sergio Mendes, Gladys Knight, Aaron Neville, Natalie Cole, Jack Jones, Rita Moreno, Jane Oliver, Little Anthony, The Cherelles, The Temptations, The Four Tops, as well as local talents Henry Kapono, Kit Samson, Anita Hall, Sonya Mendez, Jimmy Borges, Azure McCall, Paradise and Company, Keahiwai, Fiji, SwampaZZ , the Del Courtney Orchestra, Don Tiki and The Matt Catingub Orchestra. He was the musical director for the Wally Amos Show.
As an accomplished studio musician, Rocky has worked on countless commercial recording projects both locally and nationally. He is featured on the Ensemble Pacific series with grammy-award winning guitarist Charles Brotman, pianist Karl Kasberg. He has appeared as a guest lecturer for some of the KIPO jazz workshops and has also given clinics on woodwind performance and practice for the Jazz in the School series.
The Rockford Holmes' Duo with Tennyson Stevens, featuring Rocky on the flute, clarinet and saxophone is in ever- increasing demand for special private functions, and can be enjoyed in a club setting at Lewers Lounge in the Halekulani Hotel. . Rocky and Sharene Lum, as a flute and harp duo, are a delightful combination at Michel’s at the Colony Surf where elegance and sophistication are appreciated. And for those with a wild side, Rocky appears with SwampaZZ at Indigo. From classical to contemporary styles, from solo to symphonic performance, Rocky entertains with the kind of presence found only among the world's most gifted performers.

Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.

I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.

My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."

Let's be audacious, my friends!
