Streetlight Cadence, fresh from performances at Hard Rock Café and busking on the streets of Honolulu, brings their indie/classical/folk/rock vibe to HPR’s Atherton Studio on December 7th at 7:30 p.m. The group derives its name from its origins on the streets of Waikiki, and has since earned a loyal following in the islands and beyond. Reservations to hear this up-and-coming band may be made online at www.hprtickets.org or by calling the station (955-8821) during regular business hours. Tickets are $30 general, $25 for HPR members, and $15 for students with ID. The Atherton Studio is located at Hawaii Public Radio, 738 Kaheka Street.
Streetlight Cadence is a four-member acoustic ensemble comprised of Jonathon Franklin (violin and vocals), Brian Webb (cello and percussion), Jesse Shiroma (accordion), and Chaz Umamoto (guitar). The band draws inspiration from many genres, performing both original compositions and covers, ranging from pop to classical. They are often described as a synthesis between Mumford & Sons and The Killers. In January 2014, they will be making a tour of the West Coast.
