Halemanu in Concert at Maui Arts & Cultural Center 

Join me and my band for an fun and rockin' concert on Friday Sept. 6th at the MACC's McCoy Studio Theater. This is my first Maui show since winning the 2018 Na Hoku Hanohano award for Island Music Album of the Year for "So The Story Goes". You can purchase your tickets here or call 808-242-SHOW. A portion of net proceeds will be donated to a few social service non-profits on Maui such as, Aloha House, Imua Family Services, and The Maui Farm. It's gonna be a seat movin' feet groovin' good time!

 

Guitars, Ukulele, Steel Guitars are ready! 

Hawai'i music great Henry Kaleialoha Allen and I are currently recording a Hawaiian Jazz album. We are excited for the fresh arrangements on some Hawaiian standards as well as original music. Coming from different musical generations but similar upbringings and a love of music, this unique recording brings together two wonderful musicians who are clever arrangers and wizards on the guitar, ukulele, steel guitar, and kiho 'alu, expressing their love of Jazz and Hawaiian music. This album will be released in the later part of 2019.
