Henry Kapono "Welcome 2 My Paradise!",
featuring his Dukes on Sunday band
Kapono celebrates the laid-back island rock that brought him fame as one-half of the Cecilio & Kapono (C&K) duo, alongside his new songs from his CD release WELCOME 2 MY PARADISE. Lead singer and guitarist Kapono will be joined by his Dukes on Sunday band, adding a rockin' party vibe to his island style. Welcome 2 My Paradise shares Henry’s enduring aloha for his Hawai‘i home while the much-loved songs of C&K take the audience back in the day, from soul-stirring romantic ballads to island party tunes that will “put a smile on your face and good feelings in your heart.”
Henry Kapono is a performer who has it all – vocalist, guitarist, songwriter, composer, thrilling performer, audience favorite—and multiple honors and awards, including a Grammy nomination. He has taken home numerous Na Hoku Hanohano Awards, Hawai‘i’s Grammy, including Male Vocalist of the Year, Song of the Year, Single of the Year, and Album of the Year.
Henry keeps a lot of different irons in the fire. He has been at the creative forefront of contemporary Hawaiian music throughout his career – from Cecilio & Kapono in the 1970s and 80s, to launching his solo career that produced 17 albums and fans around the world, to his groundbreaking Wild Hawaiian collaborations that fused the power of Hawaiian traditions with driving rock rhythms and a soundtrack for the new century.
Today, Henry is widely known for his legendary “Dukes on Sunday” afternoon concerts on Waikiki Beach (and every good beach venue throughout the islands) as well as for his Henry Kapono & Friends on-going concert series bringing Hawaii’s top entertainer together to shine in fun & unique collaborations!
