::: Tempo Valley + bcap + Sister Lubei :::
bcap (Brian Capobianchi) is linked up with internationally renowned godfathers of lounge Thievery Corporation in Washington DC,
and often tours with their opening act See-I (members of their live band). He also started (and selects) ESL Radio,
an internet station (Apple App) that streams ESL Artists and their favorite tracks 24/7, live from their DC studio.
bcap has also been featured opening up for major Hip-Hop acts across the nation, including with Honolulu's highly acclaimed
premier Hip-Hop Dub Funk band Tempo Valley as direct support for De La Soul and NAS for 1500+ crowds.
This is bcap's first performance of his Hawaii Tour during his 2 month cross-country musical trek.
::: Taimane :::
An ukulele virtuoso weaving Flamenco passion thru Rock attitude, while maintaining Classical sophistication...
She was discovered by Don Ho at age 13 and had already begun performing since age 5...
Taimane has recently played for the Dalai Lama, opened for Chris Isaak, and toured global festivals in NYC, Japan, Thailand, Paris, etc...
She is currently signed with Mountain Apple, and her highly anticipated album Ukulele Dancer is due to release October 30th.
Taimane's Universe is a Theatrical Vignette where costumed performers interpret Dance and Poetry
to accompany each song that she wrote specifically for the Sun, the Moon, and each Planet in our Solar System.
::: Tavana :::
With 1000+ performances under his belt, his uniquely intense Blues/ Rock/ Funk fusion on guitar & vocals
caught the attention of Eddie Vedder in 2007... enough so that Eddie asked him to perform Iz's beloved
"Hawaii '78"in his 2 Sold-Out Hawaii Theater shows... Eddie was so moved by the performances that Pearl Jam released the
Live recording as a Single (Free mp3 available on his website). Currently Tavana plays almost every night of the week
throughout Oahu and makes his way to the East and West Coasts every year.
::: The Illnomadics :::
Frontman Navid Najafi has garnered much acclaim from peers and industry alike for his authentic expression of Hip-Hop Funk music,
culminating in the 2012 Na Hoku Award Best Hip-Hop Album of the Year for "Illnomadic"...
and now his original live-band sound currently boasts 8+ musicians (Illisit, Todd Elrod, Kona Askari, DeShannon Higa, Aaron Friedman,
Seann Carroll, Enrique Zender), accomplished in their own right as touring Artists from various successful cross-genre bands.
::: Family Dinner :::
Chew on this: equal parts hip-hop, Latin, ska, with crunchy bits of ukulele and country twang, stewed to perfection in a broth of straight funk.
Original core members Joel Spiral, Reggie Padilla and Alfredo Rivera actually met at a family dinner, and they started a band
by the time the dessert plates were being scraped clean. Rather than trying to fit songs into molds for established genres,
Family Dinner picks essences from various musical styles to fuse with its own sound, creating new genres altogether.
::: DJ Mr. Nick :::
As a mainstay in Honolulu’s Chinatown club and art scene for almost a decade, DJ Mr. Nick has enjoyed residencies at
thirtyninehotel, Bar 35, Nextdoor, and Showdown in Chinatown, and has played with popular artists such as
Diplo, Ursula 1000, Fort Knox Five, Demitri from Paris, Doc Martin and many more from NYC to Honolulu.
He also hosts a popular radio show The Jet Set on KTUH 90.3 FM (Honolulu) every Wednesday from 6-9pm.
