Join us for a special evening of Hawaiian Music and Benefit Concert

Stephen Antle of Hoʻokani
Rootsy Traditional and Contemporary Hawaiian Music

Museum’s Heritage Garden, 957 Beasley Road
Thursday, August 31, at 6:30 p.m.

Stephen is a Vancouver based musician, the lead vocalist and mostly rhythm guitarist in Hoʻokani, a band playing the music local Hawaiian’s play for themselves – at farmers markets, hula hālau and backyard kanikapila in the small towns on the windward sides of the islands where they live.

“Think the music of Dennis Kamakahi, Frank Kawaikapuokalani Hewett, Kealiʻi Reichel, Līhau and Kellen Paik, and the Beamer ʻohana. Think the Sons of Hawaiʻi or the Gabby Band, in Gabby Pahinuiʻs Waimānalo back yard in about 1975.”

This performance will be a solo version of a typical Hoʻokani concert. It will be intimate, laid back and largely unplugged. There will be time to share stories and answer questions.

Donations for Maui

In light of the recent horrific events on Maui, Stephen will be collecting donations and will forward all funds received at this performance to https://www.gofundme.com/f/slack-key-show-ohana-fire-relife-fund. This is a fund administered by folks he knows and trusts: local teachers, staff and students of one of the Hawaiian music workshops he attends. Some have lost family, possessions, and all have lost their work and income for the foreseeable future.
