We are thrilled to have 2/3 of The Aloha Boys as our musical guests this month!

Born and raised in Hawai’i and transplanted to the Washington D.C. area to pursue careers, the Aloha Boys, Glen Hirabayashi, Isaac Ho’opi’i and Irv Queja –   love to kanikapila or play an acoustic down-home, backyard-style Hawai’ian music. This style includes everything from the very traditional to contemporary songs.  They all sing lead and backing vocals. Their voices blend in a nahenahe (soft pleasant) style.  They have performed at numerous functions from backyard parties to concerts and at many venues including Carnegie Hall and on the National Mall at the openings of the World War II Memorial and the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian, the Kennedy Center Millenium Stage, the Barns at Wolf Trap, and in Rheims, France, Toronto, Canada, New York City, Boston, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Charlotte, Southern California and Hawai’i.  In Hawai’i, their performances include Pakele Live, the Gabby Festival, Slack Key Guitar Festival O’ahu Style, and Slack Key Guitar Festival, Virginia Style.  The music of the Aloha Boys brings them and their audience back to a lifestyle that is unique and precious to Hawai’i.
