KAHULANUI at Gertrude’s Jazz Bar in Kona~Sunday December 23rd!   Leave a comment

KAHULANUI at Gertrude’s Jazz Bar in Kona~Sunday December 23rd!

Na Hoku Award winning Kahulanui (The Big Dance) is an inspiration passed down three generations from Grandfather Robert Kahulanui Naipo, to Dad Rodgers L.L. Naipo Sr., to Grandson and Kahulanui band leader, Lolena Naipo, Jr.

Lolena remembers stories of his Grandfather who was a member of the Royal Hawaiian Band during an era when horns and drums were a part of Hawaiian music.

Throughout Hawaii in the 1920s and 1930s, one could find orchestras playing Hawaiian Swing and the house would be jumping. Kahulanui borrowed from these influences and performs classic Hawaiian songs in a syncopated style making Hawaiian Swing vibrant and alive in Hawaii today.

“Youve never heard a beat quite like this, either in Hawaii or in Harlem. Kahulanui is a ferocious blast of swinging jazz. The sun may be hot, but the music is hotter”. – The Wall Street Journal July 2, 2015

DETAILS:

▪️Date: 12/23/2018 (Sunday)

▪️Address: Gertrude’s Jazz Bar, 75-5699 Alii Drive, Kailua Kona, HI

▪️Hours: 6:00 pm

▪️Cost/Cover: $35 online, $40 at the door
