So a couple weeks ago I was graciously invited by Amin Benny to attend the Orange County US Bartenders Guild's "Tiki Night" being held at Tiki Farm. The event was sponsored by Plantation Rum with a Hawaiian BBQ Buffet and cocktails crafted by the Blind Rabbit. This episode is the first segment in a 2 part series and in this segment we chat with Amin Benny and his counterpart Mariah Tatham to learn what USBG is all about followed by a detailed symposium on Plantation Rum by Larry Steitz, their Western US Regional Manager!

Sammy J is a born and raised Maori from New Zealand who found his way into the Island Reggae pop charts quite by accident. He's since performed venues all over the world from The Roxy and House of Blues to even sold out stadiums to crowds as large as 25,000 or more! We talk about how he got his start in music, his song writing process and his upcoming Sleepwalker Tour beginning next month. As a huge fan of his work, this session was a real treat. He even shared loads of new material with me after the microphones were off and let me tell you, I think each one is a future hit single!
