On Friday July 29th, with Waikiki Beach as the backdrop, Kuana Torres Kahele will perform Hawaiian music from his new album ‘Kaunaloa’ at Tiki's Grill & Bar for a live audience and statewide broadcast on KFVE TV.
Tiki Grill & Bar is proud to host Kuana Torres Kahele as this year performer for KFVE TV The Home Team’s “Heineken Hot Hawaiian Nights.” Many locals and visitors will recognize Kuana from the multi-award winning group Na Palapalai. The duo gained critical acclaim for reviving Hawaiian classics, as well as for their own original compositions.
Shannon Scott, host of the show, said he was pleased to book Kuana, “In just over a month after Kuana’s solo début hit local music stores and iTunes, he sold over 20,000 CDs making it to 2nd place of Billboard Charts World Music”.
John Berger of the Honolulu Star-Advertiser wrote: “Kahele’s solo debut album should be a front-runner for local recognition in several major categories at the 2012 Hoku Awards”.
Locals and visitors from around the world look forward to daily performances from local talent and seven nights a week Tiki’s offers just that, live music!
While the sun sets and trade winds gently push coconut trees, Tiki statues stand guard with 30 foot Tiki torches lighting the night. Chef Ronnie Nasuti has created a few special dishes for the evening that will be featured in the restaurant.
To create even more excitement for Tiki’s facebook fan’s, if we reach 4000 fans or 2500 check in before the show is pau, we will buy all guests at the show that are 21 and over a Heineken or Heineken light!
