Cyril Pahinui, son of the late Gabby Pahinui and a legend in his own right, is a prolific slack key master and recording artist. He has performed twice at Carnegie Hall; contributed to three Grammy® Award-winning albums; been nominated for a Grammy® Award for his own solo album He‘eia; and has received several Nā Hōkū Hanohano Awards (the Hawaiian Grammy®). Joining him will be Peter Moon, Jr., whose ʻukulele prowess emulates that of his legendary father, and Jeff Au Hoy, a much-in-demand master steel guitarist and bass player.
2013 Grammy® nominee (one of only two from Hawaiʻi!) and multiple Nā Hōkū Hanohano Award winner (Male Vocalist, Song of the Year, Favorite Entertainer, and more) Weldon Kekauoha is a long-time favorite of fans and hula practitioners in both Hawaiʻi and Japan. He became a member of the prestigious Honolulu Boy Choir at an early age; was later a member of the popular Manaʻo Company; and has been a highly successful solo artist for over 14 years. He’ll be joined by his long-time bass player Alika Boy Kalauli IV, and the Manaʻo Company’s Jack Ofoia.
“Maui Jim,” who plays music throughout Maui County, will open the show.
