We are excited to bring this amazing man back home to the Temecula Theater! The Hawaiian phenomenon Willie K is undoubtedly the only artist in the world who can go into an Irish pub in the middle of Maui and play anything from indigenous acoustic Hawaiian music to jazz, reggae, rock, country, and even opera — and not only get away with it but leave everyone within earshot slack-jawed in astonishment.
Traditional, indigenous Hawaiian music has always been at the core of the Willie K experience and it is important to him to dispel misguided notions about what exactly Hawaiian music is. When Willie K plays Hawaiian, the beauty that emerges from his instrument and his mouth is as far from the stereotypes as Maui is from the North Pole, but no matter what kind of music he plays, it all comes out Willie K music.
* We all are very hopeful for Willie’s return to the stage, should his health not permit him to travel, we have scheduled top female vocalist, Amy Hanaiali’i to perform.
