More powerful than the Banzai Pipeline and sweeter than an Oahu pineapple, the members of Kahulanui are the true Hawaiian "Kings of Swing," blending traditional island melodies with Big Band swagger. The nine-piece band -- four horns plus guitar, bass, ukulele, drums and steel -- were an instant sensation in the Aloha State. Soon, news crossed the ocean and their debut album, Hula Ku'l, was nominated for a Grammy in 2014. Now you, too, can be carried away by the Pacific rhythms of this stylish outfit when Kahulanui headlines the Irvine Barclay Theatre.
