The Listening Room Phoenix Presents: A Virtuoso of the Chapman Stick, Michael Kollwitz, 7pm, March 10, 2018

Click here for location and directions!

This is going to be a night to remember! The Listening Room is a unique, intimate facility: a professional video and audio recording studio that just happens to seat 65. It’s kind of like being in my living room (minus all of Prince’s dog toys). This is my first major video shoot in 10 years and I’ll be playing some of the new material from my upcoming release ‘Serenity II – More Peaceful Music on the Chapman Stick’. I hope you’ll join us.

P.S. If you are unable to come in person I believe we will stream the concert live via Concert Window and/or Facebook. All you need is a computer screen and popcorn.

Special Christmas CD Sale on both ‘Frosty The Stickman’ & ‘Rainbows’!!

Frosty The Stickman

Frosty The Stickman

Aloha everyone,

Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. I always love this time of year because I have sooo much to be thankful for. Enjoying the holidays here in Lahaina is A-O-K by me. We don’t have any snow here on Maui (like Frosty The Stickman does above) but we get by. Imagine surfing in warm waters throughout the holidays… Or golfing or just about anything BUT shoveling snow. It’s not bad at all!

This winter holiday season will be fantastic. The humpback whales are returning from their summer in Alaska and they’re ready to do You-Know-What. They eat thousands of pounds of fish and krill while they are in Alaska and then they come here to Hawaii all ready for mating season. Gotta keep their strength up, right? At least they know how to pick the right spots!

So you can enjoy some great Stick music this winter season- just in time for Christmas– I’ve reduced the prices of both my most recent release, RAINBOWS and my Christmas albumFROSTY THE STICKMAN.

That’s right. Only $12 for each CD plus shipping. Either CD makes an excellent small last minute gift or stocking stuffer for virtually anyone on your list this year. Plus, there are additional discounts available if you purchase more than one of either CD or, better yet- both CDsMy distributor is located in Portland, Oregon and they ship very FAST and, they actually make the whole process FUN! And all right from the comfort of your own home.

Fast and fun… What more could you ask for? By the way, FROSTY is only 1 of  2 CDs that I know of here on Planet Earth that features holiday and Christmas favorites on The Chapman Stick! Many folks who already own FROSTY tell me they love to play the album while they are wrapping presents, at Christmas parties, while entertaining family & friends or just engaging in general all-around holiday merriment. I hope you’ll consider supporting a truly independent artist rather than spending your Christmas budget at Walmart. If you’d like to take a look, a listen and read the reviews you’ll find them right here on my brand new, easy to navigate Store Page. Either click below or on the icon to the right marked My Store. Either way you’ll get there. Check out some of my other releases while you’re there, too. Mahalo in advance!

This month I’ll be playing around the island and you’ll find my performance schedule up in the right hand corner of this page. If you’re in town, I hope you’ll stop by and say aloha. Until then, I wish you and yours a very


All the best,

~Michael K

Suntan Lady Just Waiting For The WaveHi Gang- I’m happy to announce that my new CD, “Suntan Lady” is almost here. The official release will be towards the end of July (perfect weather for surfing, right?)

Have a great summer- SURF’S UP !!

National TV Exposure This Week on CurrentTV

Last May, filmmaker Roy Plisko of Phoenix, Arizona, posted the mini
video documentary (that we shot in October ’06) on the web at
CurrentTV. Subsequently, it was voted in to their Number One slot in
both the United States and Great Britain. Late last year the rights
were sold to CurrentTV for national broadcast on their network of
dish, cable and satellite TV stations. The other day we heard from
CurrentTV that our “Stick Man” video is ready to go and it will most
likely be airing nationwide Wednesday and/or Thursday of this week.
You can check their television schedule (and find out where it may
air in your area) at: If it doesn’t broadcast
in your area, you can also watch it on your computer; just search on
CurrentTV for “Stick Man”. Special thanks to Roy and the folks at
CurrentTV for this national exposure of The Chapman Stick (the
coolest instrument you’ve never heard of!)
