Recently Boom Gaspar, the Pearl Jam keyboardist born and raised in Hawai`i, released the first taste of side-project Po & the 4Fathers, via a 7" single on Record Store Day. He and band-members Kawai Hoe and Kiliona Young spoke to HPR’s Dave Lawrence about their upcoming debut release.
Blues guitarist Popa Chubby – aka Ted Horowitz -- is in the state right now, on an unusual sort of tour; he’s doing nine shows on three islands. HPR’s Dave Lawrence spoke with him about his interesting name, the Hawai`i tour and his new album, Back In New York City.
This year on the mainland, two major rock tours are featuring unusual crossovers, and one includes local talent, too. HPR’s Dave Lawrence speaks with O`ahu rising reggae stars The Green, and funk/dance pros Kool and The Gang, in this story of musical cross-pollination.
The British rock band Yes are back in Hawai`i. You may recall their last visit, in 2003, when they played with the Honolulu Symphony Orchestra. HPR’s Dave Lawrence talked with the band and has our story.
Former Supreme Mary Wilson is singing tonight with the Hawai`i Symphony. Earlier this afternoon, she spent some time with HPR's Dave Lawrence; she talked about a recent loss, and experiences that influenced her inspirational "Dare to Dream" lectures and popular books.
