Kanekoa, Hawaiian act featuring the electric ukulele, to play in Meyers
If you go
When: 5 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 23
Where: Tahoe Paradise Park, 1011 E. San Bernadino Ave.
The sounds of Hawaii will fill Meyers’ Tahoe Paradise Park Sunday.
Kanekoa, a “ukulele powered experience of sound and culture” from the north shore of Maui, performs Sunday evening at the park. The group’s sound blends Hawaiian music with rock, roots reggae, folk and blues.
“Because their sound is based on the yet untapped potential of the electrified Hawaiian ukulele, inspired by the range of musical tastes of its players, and shaped by the land and culture of Hawai’i, Kanekoa has discovered a land of limitless musical possibility,” according to the band’s online biography. “In short, you have not heard or seen anything like this before.
“Lead singer, principal lyricist and rhythm ukulele player Kaulana Kanekoa provides the band’s soul inspired, thought provoking vocals and melodies; drawn from the Hawai’i of old, influenced by the diversity of the larger world, but always confronting the struggles of today. Growing up on both Maui and on the mainland, Kaulana Kanekoa was encouraged to explore all of his avenues of musical interest: from Gabby Pahinui to Led Zeppelin, The Wailers to Peter Moon, The Grateful Dead to the Makaha Sons of Ni’ihau, he was always guided to music that ‘moved the soul.’”
Tahoe Paradise Park is located at 1011 E. San Bernadino Ave. in Meyers.
