Doors are at 8pm, Show is at 9pm.

Like the multi-cultural mix of musicians that make up the band, Kapakahi is about celebrating diversity in all its fun, funky glory. Their music is a fresh and progressive mash-up of Reggae, Ska, Hip-Hop and funk and their energetic stage show grabs the attention of whatever crowd they're in front of. They dubbed the title “Urban Aloha” to describe their sound and vibe.

Forming in San Francisco in 2005, Kapakahi has grown into a regional touring act with an expanding fan-base from San Diego, to San Francisco, to Hawaii to the Pacific NW. Their love of music and work-ethic keep them focused on writing, recording, touring and spreading their music around the globe.

Based out of San Francisco, CA, the members include: Mike Dayao (Lead vox/Guitar), Steve Salta (drums/percussion), Chris Jones (Bass/Vox), Josh Hoover (sax), Lansky (sweet flows)

Their upcoming release "Light Up" is part of a movement started by the band called LIGHT UP.

LIGHT UP is a movement to strive to be higher than the individual.

It came from the simple idea to Light Up one’s life. After being together for 4 years, writing, touring and meeting people on the road, the band realized that their music can stand for something more than just a good time. Light Up is the idea that their music can be a positive force in the lives that they come to touch. It is the connection they seek and the bond that they make in that moment when a person can relate to their music.

Download the title track, "Light Up", here, for free. Hope to see you at the show!
