Hawaiian Style Band
Kahilu Theatre is excited to present the legendary “Hawaiian Style Band” with Wade Cambern, Brian Kessler, and Sister Robi Kahakalau streaming live from the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel on Saturday, May 15, 2021, at 7pm HST.
In the early ‘90s, Hawaiian Style Band, led by Bryan Kessler and Wade Cambern, redefined contemporary Hawaiian music. They offered a fresh perspective on local culture with original compositions about living Hawaiian style—about island romance, talking story, ‘Ohana, and sovereignty. Their interpretation of Hawaiian language songs re-acquainted music fans with these important compositions.
The multiple Nā Hōkū Hanohano Award-winning band was conceptualized as a revolving band, a collaboration of more than fifty musicians over the course of its three albums: Vanishing Treasures, Rhythm of the Ocean, and ‘Ohana. Participants included Hawaiian music notables Israel Kamakawiwaʻole; Bla, Cyril, and Martin Pahinui; Fiji; Teresa Bright; the Kaʻau Crater Boys; Del Beazley, and Robi Kahakalau.
This concert is free to all subscribers, and only available to others as a pay-per-view purchase. The original live broadcast will be available to view 24 hours after the initial airing.
This performance is sponsored by Mimi & Brian Kerley, Bob & Nancy Male, and Ron Meyer.
