The Churchill Arts Council will present a performance by the eclectic Hawaiian ensemble, Kahulanui, on Saturday, March 25 at 8 pm in the Oats Park Art Center, 151 E. Park Street in Fallon. Doors will open at 7 pmand there will be a no-host bar. The members of the group will also conduct a free and open-to-the-public conversation on their stylistic and musical influences at 3 pm.
Known as Hawaii’s Kings of Swing, these 2014 Grammy nominees blend traditional island music with the Big Band swing brought to the Aloha State by U.S. servicemen during World War II. The nine piece ensemble—four horns plus guitar, bass, ukulele, drums and steel—crafts new arrangements of vintage mid-century songs, utterly contemporary yet steeped in tradition.
Tickets are $17 for CAC members, $20 for non-members and are available at Jeff’s Copy Express, ITT @ NAS Fallon or by calling the Churchill Arts Council at 775-423-1440.
