In 50 years as a promoter in paradise, Tom Moffatt has staged the biggest acts in the business — from Elvis Presley to Elton John, Nureyev to the Harlem Globetrotters, Sinatra to the Rolling Stones. Now, in revealing anecdotes and more than 400 photographs, “Uncle Tom” presents an inside look at this half-century of entertainment: the Show of Stars, the POI Boys, the Hawaiian music renaissance, Sunshine Festivals inside Diamond Head, world-class theatre, stadium extravaganzas and much more. Also included are first-person anecdotes from celebrity contributors, vintage posters and rare concert photos, from Elvis Presley at Honolulu Stadium to Jimi Hendrix at the Waikiki Shell. From doo-wop to disco, sports to the symphony, here is a fascinating look behind the scenes — 50 years of entertainment through the eyes of a legendary American showman.
