Over the weekend, a cavalcade of artists from the islands and with local ties came together as part of Kokua For Japan. The event yesterday at the Hilton Hawaiian Village raised over $1.6 million dollars for relief efforts in Japan. HPR's Dave Lawrence was there and spoke with several of the performers.
This Sunday, Kokua For Japan takes place at the Hilton in Waikiki. Maui fixtures Willie Nelson and Mick Fleetwood join many others, including island resident Michael McDonald, of Doobie Brothers, Steely Dan, and solo fame. He called HPR’s Dave Lawrence from the tranquility of the birds and wind chimes on the lanai at his house on the Valley Isle.
Guitar legend Johnny Winter is heading back to the state with a four-island tour this month. He called HPR’s Dave Lawrence to talk about it.
The Afro-Cuban All Stars have been sharing Cuba’s musical heritage with audiences the world over for years. They debut in the islands with three shows in April. Juan De Marcos Gonzalez is the leader of the band, and called HPR’s Dave Lawrence to talk about their visit.
In April, Hawai`i gets a pair of dates from The Doobie Brothers. Guitarist, songwriter and vocalist Patrick Simmons won’t have to travel far to get to the shows, as HPR’s Dave Lawrence reports.
