On October 22, The Oaksong Society For The Preservation Of Way Cool Music presents special evening of aloha with slack key guitar master Led Kaapana and ukulele phenoms, Da ‘Ukulele Boyz. This show brings back full-circle the Oaksong Music Society’s long-running tradition of presenting the very best in Hawaiian music. Concert-goers who have attended Oaksong Music Society shows for many years will remember that Led Kaapana headlined the very first Oaksong Music Society Hawaiian Luau at Gray Pine Farm back in 2005. This time around, Led is joined by Da ‘Ukulele Boyz, (Peter deAquino and Garrett Probst), and will be accompanied by dancers from Redding’s Hula Arts Academy.
Led Kaapana's mastery of stringed instruments, particularly slack key guitar, and his extraordinary baritone and leo ki`eki`e (falsetto) voices, have made him a musical legend. He has been thrilling audiences for more than 40 years. With easy-going style and kolohe (rascal) charm, he has built a loyal following of “Led Heads” from Brussels to his birthplace on the Big Island of Hawaii. Recognition by his peers earned Led 4 Grammy nominations in his own right and 2 wins on slack key compilations.
Da ’Ukulele Boyz, first cousins Peter deAquino and Garrett Probst, began playing together as kids, competing as a team in Keoki Kahumoku’s Maui Ukulele Contest held annually at the Hula Grill. Their amazing instrumentals, dynamic vocals, and relaxed stage banter gave them multiple victories for several years until they matured and took over management of the contest themselves. Energetic, talented, and charismatic, they recently released their third album, Jus Cuz- Ukulele Duets.
You don’t have to fly to Hawaii to feel the essence of the Hawaiian spirit. Just come to the Pilgrim Church and hear these terrific performers play and sing!
