12.10.08 -- Holiday Hell Yeah!...Best Christmas Album Ever is Back!
Though it may only bottom out at 60 degrees here in Hawaii it's still plenty cold for us simple island folk. Still, we feel the need to write songs about the romantic nostalgia Christmas invokes in all of us. Back on music store shelves and stockings everywhere is GJG's greatest achievement of all...Holiday Hell Yeah!
Available at our online store, all Borders, Sam Goody, Barnes & Noble, Sam's Club, Walmart, Costco retail outlets and also at Amazon.com, MountainAppleCompany.com, and of course Itunes.com. More better you just come to the live show and pick one up from us and hear the songs live ;)
" Hawaii is not exactly the place that readily springs to mind when one thinks about Christmas. Coconut palms rather than conifers and macadamias instead of chestnuts roasting on an open fire, it's hard to envisage Santa divesting his red suit for shorts and changing sleigh for surfboard, riding the waves instead of snow. All these images at first made me raise an eyebrow.
"But of course, we are talking about Go Jimmy Go, and - as I have come to realize during my global peregrinations with these mischievous iconoclasts - everything is possible and nothing should be unexpected. So let's throw the eggnog out the window and grab a couple of daiquiris and a Piña Colada and go down to the beach to enjoy these Christmas tunes steeped in the sweet island sugar as only Go Jimmy Go could confect.
"With this sumptuous set of seasonal selections Go Jimmy Go once again demonstrates a level of lyrical musicianship that few contemporary bands can hope to emulate. The smooth rhythm stylings and the haunting vocal harmonies are sweeter than any candy in the stocking. The slick arrangements of the cadences roll in softly like the waves lapping on Waikiki Beach . So, come dip your toes in the warm waters of the "Island Sound" known the world around. Merry Christmas everybody - Hawaiian Style! Go Jimmy Go style!"
5.20.08 -- Kokua Festival Video Clips
You can catch Jack Johnson's entire performance at this year's Kokua Festival 2008 at MSN.com. Even better click on the link below to check out the GJG Horns in action during the encore of the last night, Sunday April 20th. The sound and video are excellent and Dave Matthews does some impressive impromptu numbers counting towards the end and if you listen just right you can hear Eric's Saturday Night Live super-high altissimo A on the last note of the song! You can also catch Bison and Jayder singing and dancin' up there in the mix.
This was an epic experience and we want you all to go back in time with all of us and see it for yourself. Thanks Jack, Dave, Kim and everybody else for treating us so well and having us over at your place. Sorry, we drank a lot of beer, but we did recycle the bottles ;) Big ups Kokua Fest!!!

4.22.08 -- Forgetting Sarah Marshall
Your chance to chance a glimpse of Go Jimmy Go on the silver screen is now! Universal Picture's Forgetting Sarah Marshall is the newest film from the same crew that brought you Superbad, The 40 Year Old Virgin and Knocked Up. Better yet, the film is set almost entirely in Hawaii and even better than that, there's a couple Go Jimmy Go Fishbowl Eyes Promo Posters in a few scenes in the movie. We're not going to tell you where so you just have to keep your eyes open because it pops up in a few different places.
The film just came out this weekend so you have plenty time to catch Go Jimmy Go in their big screen debut ;) Now, if we could just get the band members and a song in the next one they'd be stoked!
