About The Event
So, you never have heard of Tavana? Well, trust me, you are going to love this guy. Here is some info on this amazing artist.
"Tavana is a one-man band from Honolulu who uses electronic drum triggers to lay a variety of grooves with his feet. This backbeat provides the foundation for him to accompany himself on guitar, banjo, lap steel or ukulele while singing island-inspired soulful Rock & blues. He was the supporting act for Alabama Shakes, Shakey Graves, Kaleo & Xavier Rudd. Tavana has performed and recorded with John Cruz, Henry Kapono, Eddie Veder, Leon Mobley, Chris Chroney and many others. His 2017 album, “Aloha Spiritʻ was nominated for a Na Hoku Hano Hano Award for Best Contemporary Album of the year. Tavana completed a major tour last year which brought him to Canada, Japan and the US mainland." Uma’s Ultimate Kona Konnection
And from his website: "My rig has grown over the years, and I now use six electronic drum pedals to achieve my desired sound. I perform everything live and use no looping. Everything is played moment to moment...It's hard to explain how fun it is to do this. Its like having a whole band in your body and mind. And they can stop and go together on a dime!!! They can slow down, speed up or whatever in perfect unity! Every sound comes with its own identity, colors,and emotions creating a much larger pallet from which to express myself. Additionally, it gives my mind very little time to stray away from the music resulting in a truly meditative state."
The result of this exploration and improvisation became his 3rd Album - 'Kicking and Screaming' featuring hard-driving hits such as 'Mystery', 'Wise Up', and 'County Line' while also offering softer, more melodic tunes such as 'Baby Blue' which he wrote while trying to lull his newborn baby - Mavrik - to sleep one afternoon.
His 4th album - 'Aloha Spirit' - was a Na Hoku Hanohano Award Nominee for Best Contemporary Album of the Year in 2018, and features Leon Mobley (Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminals), Chris Chorney (Kanye West and Jay-Z), and Mike Lewis (Sammy Davis, The Temptations, Billy Joel), as well as other world class musicians - Mark Lindberg, Ken Likens, and Ane Pessin. The album displays Tavana's versatility with crossover pop songs 'SMH', 'Aloha Spirit', and 'Island Days,' while still showcasing some of his traditional hard-driving rock style on 'Walk My Way' and 'Glass Castle.'
