The band America is in the islands. Having played Kaua`i and O`ahu, they move to Maui tonight and the Big Island Saturday. HPR’s Dave Lawrence caught up with original members Dewey Bunnell and Gerry Beckley before the show last night and talked about the ways they've made a strong connection to Hawai`i over nearly forty years of performing here.
America perform at the MACC's Castle Theatre Friday August 26 and in Waikoloa at the Hilton on Saturday August 27. Find out more about America at their website venturahighway.com.
