Walter Hochhauser, Carmine DeSana and Sal Sofia as The Jersey Boys

Walter Hochhauser was born in Brooklyn, NY, and moved to Florida in 1961 where he began singing in some of Miami’s most notable hotels. In 1980, he joined REUNION as the lead singer, playing local venues and Rock N’ Roll shows throughout the state and in the Bahamas. In 2004, REUNION recorded the CD “Miracles,” featuring Walter on lead for many of their arrangements. In 1999, Walter had the privilege and pleasure of recording vocal tracks for Dion DiMucci’s “New Master’s” Album, and today, continues to record songs with Dion being seen and shared through social media.

Carmine DeSena was born in Brooklyn, NY, and was one of the original members of the Creations and Riffs and in the 1970’s he sang with the Ribtones. In 1980, he moved to Florida, and teamed up with Joel Bressler to create REUNION, South Florida’s Premier Show Band. Carmine is also called upon by Dion DiMucci as Baritone on his video recordings shared on social media. Carmine has been influential with “keeping the music alive,” and has been a member of many well known Doo-wop and oldies groups, bringing decades of harmony experience, energy, and excitement to every show he performs in.

Sal Sofia hails from the Bronx, NY, where he grew up with a family of singers, musicians, and entertainers. With a deep affection for music and harmony, he became interested in the deeper vocal group sounds of the 50’s and set out to host his own show, the Doo-Wop Groove on AM/FM stations, heard throughout the New York area. Sal has been a collector of the “rare” sounds of the genre and moved to Florida in 2003, where he began singing with several local acapella groups, achieving notoriety with The Dons of Doo Wop, a successful acapella group. Today, he can be seen and heard joining Dion DiMucci with his strong second tenor style on recordings Dion shares across social media to all of his fans.

Trust Jeff Eats when I tell you- Kon Chau is one of the best Chinese joints in Florida!

No bs-here, it seems that everytime “people” learn that I am Jeff Eats they somehow end up asking me for the name(s) of good- Chinese restaurants! Not exactly sure why, but most everyone (originally from another state) that I meet, seems to think that the Chinese food in South Florida stinks! Just between you guys and Jeff Eats, I’ve found a “ton” of really good joints- but you guys do know that food “reviewing” is a totally subjective game!

Long story short,

Last night Jeff Eats, Mrs. Jeff Eats and another couple ate dinner at Kon Chau Chinese Restauarnt. The food absolutely killed (and I mean that in a good sense)! I’ve done previous stories on Kon Chau Chinese (2/17/15, 11/30/08)!

For our purposes let’s call today’s story A PUBLIC SERVCE ANNOUNCEMENT for all you cats out there in search of some seriously delicious really reasonably priced- Cantonese/and “real” Chinese food in South Florida!

You can checkout Kon Chau Chinese Restaurant’s menu/prices/info at konchauchinese.com.

***** Kon Chau Chinese Restaurant, 8376 SW 40th Street, Miami, Florida 33155, (305) 553-7799.

Let’s call Kon Chau Restaurant another “out of sight out of mind” casualty.

Jeff Eats hadn’t been back- since I first mentioned the joint on 11/20/2008.

Ate there last night and the food was off the chart…delicious wonton soup, pan fried dumplings, egg rolls, bbq spare ribs, sweet & sour pork, pepper steak, chicken fried rice! I know-I know, pretty straight-up Jewish Brooklyn American Chinese stuff circa 1957…trust Jeff Eats, Kon Chau got the full dim sum lineup and “real” Chinese food that you professional foodies require!

No hesitation here- telling you that Kon Chau is right up there with Miami’s best Chinese joints.

Original story is down below and you can check menu/prices/info at konchauchinese.com.

Kon Chau is right up my alley… I’m going to guess that this “hole in the wall” amazingly cheap Chinese dim sum joint has been around at least 30 years. I am also willing to bet, that the furniture-decorations today are exactly as they were when the joint first opened. Now about the food…this joint makes some absolutely delicious dim sum and must have at least 60 items…Kon Chau also has loads of top notch Cantonese dishes, so everyone is covered and no one is going to go home hungry…an hour later, that may-be a different story!

Anyway…if delicious Chinese food is your game, this is a real good joint to know about.

Kon Chau is open Monday-Saturday 11am-9:30pm and Sunday 10am-9:30pm.

An Evening of FLOYD, A Tribute “The Ultimate Pink Floyd Experience”
One Night Only-
Full Show, Extreme SOUND, LIGHTS and LED Wall Experience

FLOYD… A Tribute, is a celebration of the legendary career of the progressive rock band Pink Floyd. This 90 minute production features precise musical renditions of some of their signature songs, along with an impressive light show that includes complex synchronized lighting movements, multiple laser displays and State of the Art LED Walls. The show is crafted to engage both younger and older generations—providing fans of all ages an opportunity to re-live the creative genius of Pink Floyd that produced an incredible spectrum of music over a period of nearly 50 years!

The 10 member band features all of the musical and theatrical elements that were critical to Pink Floyd’s historic success. The vocal focus of the group emulates the quality and energy of two of Pink Floyd founders – David Gilmore and Roger Waters, while the three female vocalists provide the signature harmonies and soulful arpeggios that made the band famous in the 1970’s. The band incorporates multiple guitarists utilizing electric, acoustic and classical guitars including Pink Floyd’s distinctive lap steel voicings. Two keyboardists provide the orchestral foundation of the original band’s unique sound, and a solid rhythm section of percussion and electric bass underlies the overall production. Finally, the characteristic saxophone rounds out the ensemble with the unique solo punctuations that highlight many of their hit songs.

In addition to the detailed vocal and instrumental techniques, the production is accompanied by a fully automated light show, complete with numerous computer synchronized autonomous lighting fixtures, including multiple moving lasers all designed to precisely enhance the overall musical performance. In addition, the production extensively utilizes colorful video projections to establish a striking visual context for each musical sequence.

FLOYD A Tribute provides one of the most accurate interpretations of the Pink Floyd experience available. Much care is taken by each member of the band and the supporting lighting and audio professionals to recreate the historic Pink Floyd experience and make it available for your enjoyment!
