Makaha Sons plan concert
The Makaha Sons return to Hilo for their annual Valentine’s concert at the Palace Theater on Feb. 9 at 7 p.m.
For more than 30 years, the Makaha Sons have committed themselves to perpetuating traditional Hawaiian music. In 1976 the Makaha Sons of Ni‘ihau began with five members as an opening act in a small nightclub known as “Uptown Yokos.”
Throughout the years the group has reorganized several times; from members seeking other professional careers, to the untimely passing of three key members of the original group.
In June 2012, John Koko died and the Sons evolved into a duo consisting of original members Louis “Moon” Kauakahi on 6-string guitar and Jerome Koko on 12-string guitar.
Today, the Makaha Sons are still considered to be one of Hawaii’s premiere Hawaiian musical groups. They continue to perpetuate that vibrant sound, full and rich with harmonies that only they can create.
Their incomparable vocal arrangements and delightful stage presence have won the hearts of thousands of fans worldwide.
Tickets are $30 advance, $35 door. Advance tickets are on sale now at the Palace Theater box office, 10 a.m.-3 p.m. weekdays. Call 934-7010 for credit card purchases.
