Henry Kapono rose to immense popularity with the phenomenon Cecilio & Kapono (aka C&K) as half of the duo with Cecilio Rodriguez. As the first Hawaiߵi group to be signed by a major record label, Columbia Records, C&K helped forge the sound of the 70’s “Hawaiian Music Renaissance” with laid-back contemporary island rock that voiced the feelings of an entire generation in Hawaiߵi. As one of the most successful musical acts in Hawaiߵi’s history, their distinctive blend of folk, rock, and island rhythms became the soundtrack of growing up in Hawaiߵi for multiple generations.The concert will feature classic hits such as We’re All Alone, Lifetime Party, Sailin’, Gotta Get Away, Sunshine Love, Highway in the Sun, and many more.
It was not long before Henry’s talent evolved into a successful solo career in the mid-'80s and paved the way to work with some of the country's most famous musicians and producers. Today as a solo artist, Henry is a Grammy-nominated and award-winning singer and songwriter, winning 21 Nā Hōkū Hanohano Awards (Hawai‛i’s “Grammy’s”), and by public vote, 2021 Favorite Entertainer of the Year.
