Program Description

Event Details

Slip on your favorite tropical shirt! The 2023 San Diego Music Award's Best World Music Album nominee Slack Key 'Ohana will transport you to your favorite island paradise during this one-hour concert. In 2022, the band was nominated in two categories: “Best New Artist” and “Best World Music Album” with Slack Key 'Ohana performing at the televised awards show and winning the World Music Album category. They've performed at the 2022 Pacific Islander Festival, the largest islander festival on the mainland, in addition to 2022 performances at Alohana Festival and Tiki Oasis. 

With a “Tiki” Waikīkī’ vibe, Slack Key 'Ohana blends beautiful Hawaiian melodies with Beach Boys/Elvis Presley style harmonies, using old-school recording techniques, to craft their signature sound. Comprised of Brian Witkin & Kamaka Mullen, Slack Key ʻOhana is a Kaleponi (California) based guitar duo with an expansive roster of guest musicians augmenting their sound. 

Integrating traditional Hawaiian Slack Key guitar with a contemporary sound, it’s a winning combination that has seen the duo quickly become favorites amongst club goers and festival attendees alike.

Backed by acclaimed accompanying musicians, including Joe Witkin (Sha Na Na/Woodstock) on keyboards, Carol Witkin (The Corvettes/Legends) on ukulele and Rand Anderson (Tom Curren Band) on pedal steel, as well as hula dancers including Alyssa Godoy (Miss PIFA 2021-22), a Slack Key 'Ohana show is a unique and fun experience. The pair’s mix of hook-filled originals and select classics will instantly transport an audience to a warm sandy beach, wherever the actual performance may be taking place.
