In the early 20th century, Hawaiian bands started playing jazzed-up versions of beloved traditional songs on Hawaiian instruments. Embracing this custom, Kahulanui (the Big Dance) crafts dance floor-ready tunes on traditional Hawaiian instruments. This tropical-paradise-meets-big-band sound embraces swing’s brassy grace, the charm of the ukulele and lap steel, and breezy vocal harmonies.
Come dressed in your finest tropical vintage. Prizes for the best dressed. Hawaiian-inspired style will be sure to catch the judges’ eyes!
