The Hawaiian Grateful Dead
Friday, Nov. 11, 2022
7:30pm // Discovery Theatre
To hear Kanekoa is to love them. One of Hawaii’s premier live music experiences, Kanekoa’s island jam-rock is redefining the power and possibility of the ukulele, much like local legend (and collaborator) Jake Shimabukuro. Infusing the four-stringed instrument with eclectic roots and flavors of reggae, blues, funk, jazz, and island music, these ukulele innovators are as much inspired by Hawaiian greats as Led Zeppelin and the Allman Brothers Band.
Guided by the culture and land of Hawaii, Kanekoa has earned a worldwide fan base – called Koaheads – including some big names: Mick Fleetwood, Los Lobos, and the Grateful Dead’s Bill Kreutzman who called them “The Hawaiian Grateful Dead.” Their fluid, liquid runs flow like waterfalls, recalling Jerry Garcia’s tonal lyricism.
Get in the groove with Maui’s mesmerizing jam masters.
