Hawaii comes to Cache Creek
BROOKS, Calif. – Music lovers who are tired of the same old rock, hip hop, R&B or country concerts can enjoy an evening of Hawaiian surf, rock, funk, jazz and slack key guitar with Kalapana & Willie K., who have played sold out shows in their native Hawaii, the Philippines, and several Asian countries as well as here on the mainland, including an upcoming tour date at Cache Creek's Club 88 on May 22 at 8 p.m.
The music of Hawaii includes an array of traditional and popular styles, ranging from native Hawaiian folk music to modern rock and hip hop. Styles such as the slack-key guitar are well-known worldwide and Hawaiian-tinged music is a frequent and well recognized part of many Hollywood soundtracks and television programs. Hawaiians also made a major contribution to country music with the introduction of the steel guitar. The flair and flavor that are trademarks of traditional Hawaiian folk music is a major part of the state's heritage and identity, and is cherished by audiences the world over.
Kalapana’s special guest, guitar virtuoso Willie K. has played with and opened for such musical giants as B.B. King, Santana, Al DiMeola, Willie Nelson, Prince, Crosby, Stills and Nash, Elvin Bishop, Bonnie Rait, Jackson Browne, Mick Fleetwood, George Benson and Jimmy Buffett. For fans of the tranquil sounds of island music this is a fantastic opportunity to see a great Hawaiian group perform in an intimate setting.
