An Evening with Hapa @ Boulder Theater

Like the Hawaiian Islands themselves, Hapa's Pan-Polynesian music is an amalgam of influences ranging from ancient genealogical chants to the strummed ballads of Portuguese fisherman, Spanish cowboys, and the inspired melodies and harmonies of the traditional church choirs of the early missionaries. Add to this a dose of American acoustic folk/rock, and you have what has been described as the “most exciting and beautiful contemporary Hawaiian music the world knows!”… (Maui Times).

These disparate ingredients blended together musically in the Pacific emotes the unique flavor of what Hawaii and Hapa music is: “beautiful, fragile, spiritual, powerful”… (L.A. Times). Often encapsulated as the “Sound of Maui”, HAPA’s music evokes a place that many people at different times have referred to as heavenly. Hapa’s self entitled debut cd released in 1993, swept the 1994 Na Hoku Hanohano Awards (Hawaii’s equivalent of the Grammy’s), becoming the biggest selling CD by a group or duo in the history of recorded Hawaiian music. The group’s ground breaking music has established them as the most recognized name in Hawaiian music internationally since their debut release, with sold-out shows from Tokyo to New York.

Leftover Salmon is breaking up or taking a break?

Leftover Salmon- for the Grateful Web

Hi Yall - Tis some very bad news but yes it is true after 15 years the boys are calling it quits I wanted to keep all the rumors from flying I am very sad about this the band has been a big part of my life from playing my wedding in 94 to being on the road with them for 5or6 hundred shows or so. Since Mark passed nothing has really ever been the same musically they have done a great job but the feeling of family and adventure has never been the same Mark really was the glue that held things together and boy do I miss him .Vince called me a few weeks ago and broke the news. He is sad and a little nervous about what the future will bring. He is also excited about the fact that he will be able to spend time with Kimba and Sylas. his boy is growing up fast.The last shows will be a three day run for new years at the boulder theater I hope the boys dont get mad at me for talking out of school here but they know I love all of them like brothers and as they say all good things must pass so get out there and see them while you can !!!
