Henry Kapono @ Duke’s Restaurant and Barefoot Bar

At 4pm on Sunday afternoon, a sound check began to resonate from Duke’s Bar. Upon asking some beach goers, it appeared the famous Henry Kapono and his band were going to play their usual Sunday set.

They started it off with an impressive Santana cover, and it married so well with the beautiful beach two steps behind the band and bar. The style of the band was eclectic to say the least: funky, upbeat, rock, reggae, easy-listening, punk, classic, even world. Each song encompassed a different genre, and the switch over was surprisingly smooth.

There was some true experience resonating from this band. After researching into the event, it transpires Henry Kapono plays every Sunday at Duke’s bar from 4 ’til 6, and even has a song called ”Duke’s On Sunday”. Brilliant.

I absolutely and highly recommend anyone on Waikiki beach on a Sunday to lounge back and have this band playing in your ears as you gaze out on to sea front, and progressively witness the sun set. It is a stunning view, and this music really adds a spot of magic to the whole thing.

Also, for those who want to dance it up after lazing around all day, there is ample room to strut one’s stuff on the dance floor, and sun dance.

An excellent show, which I thoroughly enjoyed, and bought me closer to Waikiki.
