This is an 18+ event. The soulful jams of the 60s will be recreated with an EPIC 10-piece live band and a dozen of Honolulu's fiercest soul singers, including American Idol finalists DeAndre Brackensick and Big Mox, Na Hoku Hanohano Award winners, Paula Fuga, Yoza, and Maryanne Ito, local favorites Izik, Keilana, Mindy Smokestack, Kahnma K, Melodie Soul, Melissa Diallo, & Jared Ming. The band's wall of sound will be complete with brass horns, keys, and backing vocalists. We will be rolling out Motown era classic hits like Tina Turner's "Proud Mary," Stevie Wonder's "Superstition," Sam Cooke's "Cupid," and "My Girl" from the Temptations. Original opening sets will be provided by Hawaiian Soul artist, Paula Fuga and Nu Blues band, Kings of Spade. A special cabaret performance will feature Violetta Beretta. PAULA FUGA Praised for her originality in song composition and ability to stir the deepest emotions with spellbinding and soulful vocals, Paula Fuga was awarded the Na Hoku Hanohano Award for Most Promising Artist. She has headlined the Alma Surf Festival in Sao Paolo, Brazil, and performed with Jack Johnson at Madison Square Garden and the Sydney Opera House Forecourt, while making musical collaborations with Jack, Ziggy Marley, & Nahko Bear. She has even been invited to perform for President Barack Obama in the White House in Washington, DC three times. KINGS OF SPADE is a high-energy, foot-stomping, shameless dancing Blues-Rock act from Hawaii. The Kings are fronted by KC, who's firey and passionate vocals cross between Janis Joplin and Aretha Franklin. Recently picked as openers for Guns ‘N Roses at Aloha Stadium, KOS has also been featured at Willie K's Blues Festival, Riki Rachtman's Cathouse Anniversary, and on iconic stages like the Roxy Theater in Los Angeles all the way to the Stone Pony in New Jersey. They have toured as openers for King's X in the US and Europe.
