EMKE is an emerging Hawai`i teen rock act you may remember hearing about last fall, when we started keeping tabs on their journey. This weekend they celebrate the release of their debut EP, Promises & Expectations, and visited HPR's Dave Lawrence in our Atherton Studio to talk about it.
EMKE's EP release party for Promises & Expectations is this Sunday at noon at The Hard Rock Cafe in Waikiki. Below hear the complete interview with the band and see a video of them performing one of the songs from the EP, Open Eyes, "unplugged" at HPR's Atherton Performing Arts Studio.

Our engineer will be working this Saturday on HPR-1 and HPR-2 for O'ahu North Shore. Power should be back to full strength once he's finished. All other transmitters are operating normally.
