Polynesian Underground Presents - Henry Kapono & Band

Henry Kapono Ka’aihue is an award winning and Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter. He has taken home numerous Na Hoku Hano Hano Awards (Hawaii’s equivalent to a Grammy) including Male Vocalist of the Year, Song of the Year, Single of the Year, and Album of the Year. He is also the author of the award winning children’s book, "A Beautiful Hawaiian Day," has appeared in the films "Damien" and "Waterworld" and has made many television appearances.
Kapono has become a household name throughout Hawaii and the Pacific. His music has taken him all over the world and his fan base is very diverse. His musical journey has been a very bohemic collage of innovation and creativity continually evolving in a way that very few artists are able to sustain. His influences, Bob Marley, John Lennon, Jimi Hendrix, Sting and Stevie Wonder, to name a few, are reflected in his musical tapestry that is exclusively Kapono. His music transcends his Hawaiian heritage which he prides so much and embodies the spirit of Aloha that he has for all people.
Henry has the gift that most great artists share: the ability to enable us to gaze upon their painting or ponder their work or listen to their music - and find new meaning and purpose in our own lives. Henry touches the soul with the simple honesty of his lyrics and music, and the gift of an evocative, plaintive balladeer's voice that haunts you long after he leaves the stage.
Don't miss your chance to see him live at the Belly Up Tavern in Solana Beach on Thursday, July 17th with special guest, Kevin Miso.
In the past two years, Kevin Miso has played over 300 shows, sharing the stages with artists as varied as Augustana, Sublime with Rome, John Cruz, and The English Beat. Completely independent and with a grass roots approach, Miso has linked up with producer Warren Huart (The Fray, Howie Day, Augustana) to collaborate on his debut EP.
His Hawaiian roots mixed with his Southern California upbringing blend an island sound with a more contemporary pop feel. His vibe is described as "The New Old School".
