Current Edition - Fall 2019
On August 1st, a bittersweet evening of grand aloha was
held in the Travassa hotel dining room. A fabulous night
of entertainment embracing almost 10 years of music
together, CJ ‘Boom’ Helekahi, Leokane Pryor and Boise
Kawaiaea captured the hearts of their audience one last time. A long time evolution of Hawaiian music grew to a pinnacle of making magic for their audiences.
In 2004, Leokane moved to Hāna and worked at the Social Desk under Director Makala Waring. In this time there was music every night in the Paniolo Lounge at the hotel. Many wonderful musicians graced the stage for these performances and Leokane and Boise soon became partners along with gracious and talented Leeann Paman. Not long after CJ joined the hotel’s playlist and so began the beginnings of artistic excellence.
