Hawaii Theatre Center presents STORM LARGE

Storm Large cartwheeled out of the gutter of her checkered past, across a thousand punk rock stages, and into her infamously googled stint on a rock n' roll reality series. From there she went on to tour the world, singing in 17 different languages, and only behaving herself somewhat, with the joyful little pop orchestra Pink Martini. Ultimately, this route lead to her appearance on the stage of Carnegie Hall singing Kurt Weill with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra.

Hawaii Theatre Center presents RELEASE THE HOUNDS: AN EVENING WITH JULIAN LAGE & CHRIS ELDRIDGE | AOIFE O'DONOVAN

A night of intrepid songwriting and acoustic innovation, beginning with Aoife O’Donovan at center stage. O’Donovan draws from her catalogue of songs, played as she wrote them; with just her acoustic guitar and voice. The Washington Post describes her singing as "almost too gorgeous for its own good." Julian Lage & Chris Eldridge follow with their masterly acoustic performance typical of the virtuosic duo, known for pushing the envelope of folk, bluegrass, and jazz. Showcasing, as The New Yorker writes, a "familiarity with the fretboard…so extravagant and capacious that they bring flourishes to this music that it simply hasn’t enjoyed before," their performance is sure to astound. The evening concludes with all three on stage together in an aural-hootenanny.

Golden Voice and BAMP Project Present: NORAH JONES: DAY BREAKS WORLD TOUR

The Historic Hawaii Theatre is thrilled to bring iconic singer-songwriter NORAH JONES to the stage on April 26 and 27, 2017. Norah Jones first emerged on the world stage with the February 2002 release of Come Away With Me, her self-described “moody little record” that introduced a singular new voice and grew into a global phenomenon, sweeping the 2003 Grammy Awards and signaling a paradigm shift away from the prevailing pop music of the time. Since then, Norah has sold over 45 million albums worldwide and become a 9-time Grammy-winner. She has released a series of critically acclaimed and commercially successful solo albums—Feels Like Home (2004), Not Too Late (2007), The Fall (2009), and Little Broken Hearts (2012)—as well as albums with her collective bands The Little Willies and Puss N Boots. The 2010 compilation …Featuring Norah Jones showcased her incredible versatility by collecting her collaborations with artists as diverse as Willie Nelson, Outkast, Herbie Hancock, and Foo Fighters. Little Broken Hearts, which was produced by Danger Mouse, was a fascinating step in the artistic evolution of one of the music world’s most consistently intriguing singer-songwriters.
