JIM "KIMO" WEST.... An Evening of Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar with Jim "Kimo" West WITH special guest
Coffee Gallery Backstage- Altadena, CA
JIM "KIMO" WEST.... An Evening of Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar with Jim "Kimo" West WITH special guests and hula! (Bob Stane says: Jim, "kimo" West is really tearing it up now. He has become the musical big canoe he deserves to be +) Jim “Kimo” West is known as one of the world’s top ki ho’alu or Hawaiian “slack key” guitar artists and is a prolific composer of new ki ho’alu songs. This warm and engaging acoustic guitar style has it’s roots in 1850’s Hawaii, when Mexican vaquieros first brought guitars to the Big Island of Hawaii. Having never even seen Waikiki, Kimo came right to Hana, Maui in 1985 and spent much of his time there for many years. It was in Hana where he first heard the music of Gabby Pahinui, Sons Of Hawaii, Sonny Chillingworth and Atta Isaacs. Already familiar with alternate tunings, he was drawn to the nahenahe sound of ki ho’alu and soon was creating his own compositions. He is a veteran of Hawaii’s famed slack key festivals as well as the recent So Cal Slack Key Festival every year since 2008. He has shared the stage with almost all the world’s top slack key players at one time or another and is a regular featured performer at George Kahumoku’s Slack Key Show in Napili, Maui Kimo is a 2008 winner of the Hawaii Music Awards and a 2009 and 2012 Na Hoku Hanohano, (the Hawaiian ‘Grammy’) nominee. He is also a two-time winner of the LA Treasures Award for his efforts in keeping this important acoustic guitar tradition alive. Kimo’s show encompasses both traditional an contemporary original slack key material as well as vocals in Hawaiian and English language. He sometimes incorporates steel guitar and when possible, video projection. He uses a number of different tunings in his set, including some of his own invention which have been added to George Winston’s extensive compendium of ki ho’alu tunings Besides his slack key work, Kimo is well-known as long-time guitarist for the world’s most successful musical satirist, “Weird Al” Yankovic, with whom he has received three Grammy’s and many gold and platinum records. They have recently performed on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno and the Jimmy Fallon Show. He also contributes to production duties on the CD’s and recently scored Al’s 3D mini-feature, “Al’s Brain”.... Details

A Tribute to Dennis Kamakahi
Ruth B. Shannon Center for the Performing Arts- Whittier , CA
The Reverend Dennis Kamakahi spent a brief 61 years among us, but in that time he gave us the immortal gift of his music. In the spirit of kōkua (assistance) and ho`omaika`i (to give thanks and blessings), five of his musical protégés will perform a series of fundraising concerts, with all proceeds going directly to the Kamakahi family. All five musicians are Nā Hōkū Hanohano award winners.  David Kamakahi follows in his father’s footsteps with his varied musical pursuits, including his membership in the popular trio Waipuna. `Ukulele virtuoso Herb Ohta, Jr. is a long-time friend of the family and benefited from Dennis Kamakahi’s mentorship along with that from his father, Ohta-San. Jon Yamasato, who was trained by Dennis Kamakahi on slack key guitar, gained musical notoriety as the lead singer in the band Pure Heart prior to his success as a solo artist. Slack key guitarist Patrick Landeza met and was mentored by Kamakahi in the early 1990s, and continued to tour with him over the next twenty years.  "Guitar slinger" Stephen Inglis shares credit with Kamakahi on their 2011 CD "Waimaka Helelei," which was Kamakahi’s last release, and which took him back to the island of Molokai, where he spent much of his childhood.  Dennis Kamakahi spoke of performance as giving "life" to songs. With this series of memorial concerts, may those who loved him and his music come together to celebrate and honor the greatest and most prolific composer of Hawaiian music in contemporary times.  E ola mau kōna mau mele – let his songs live!... Details
