Ukulele-powered Hawaiian jam-rock
Playing what is described as “ukulele-powered Hawaiian jam-rock,” Kanekoa is riding the wave of renewed interest in the instrument most closely associated with the Aloha State. Though Kanekoa has been at it for close to 25 years, the band continues to surprise and delight unsuspecting audiences, pushing the envelope of this 4-string instrument. Wherever this band plays people are mesmerized, they’ve never heard anything like Kanekoa before.
