On Friday, April 13, at 10 p.m., Halo will fire up the turntables on Maui at Charley's to celebrate the launch of his new record label, Surface Recordings Group. He will be joined by Surface recording artist, Maui's own deep house master Marasco. Mixing the electronic with the organic, Marasco will be accompanied by the powerhouse vocals of Gretchen Rhodes. Rhodes frequently performs lead vocal in Mick Fleetwood's band, Island Rumors.
