POLYNESIAN CULTURAL CENTER HOSTS SUMMER CONCERT FEATURING ANUHEA AND NESIAN N.I.N.E
Popular Local Artists to Perform in PCC’s Newly Renovated Gateway Venue on July 6
Laie, Hawaii – June 04, 2012 – Na Hoku Hanohano award-winner Anuhea and local group Nesian N.I.N.E., two of Hawaii’s most popular local acts, will perform live at the Polynesian Cultural Center’s (PCC) newly renovated Gateway venue on July 6, 2012.
With a delicate balance of fragility, strength and sass, singer/songwriter Anuhea blends engaging lyrics, acoustic soul, pop, rap and reggae into a style that has earned her a reputation as Hawaii’s top female artist. Anuhea’s signature guitar rhythms, sultry vocals and honest song writing weave acoustic soul, R&B, jazz and hip hop with pop appeal, making Anuhea Hawaii’s rising star.
Nesian N.I.N.E (Natives Inna New Era) has been together since 2008 and has shared the stage with some of the biggest names in the music industry including Boyz II Men and Brian McKnight. Their incorporation of old school vibes blended with just the right touch of island feel allows them to do it all, from reggae, R&B and soul ballads, to old school.
“We are very excited to host Hawaii’s brightest musical stars at the PCC. We look forward to welcoming their fans and all who enjoy the talent and positive vibes these artists will bring to PCC this summer,” said Raymond Magalei, PCC’s director of marketing. “This is just one of many concerts we have planned. Earlier this year we hosted an intimate Valentine’s evening with Natalie Ai Kamauu and her special guest performer Kapena and just last month we had a mother’s day dance with live music provided by Island Times 2.”
The July 6 concert is scheduled to start at 8 p.m. in the PCC’s grandiose new Gateway special events venue. The 24,400-square-foot venue provides an ideal location for concerts and features shell torches that supply ambient lighting along with a state-of-the-art cooling system, which continually circulates the air in Gateway, enhancing the natural breeze that runs through the restaurant.
Tickets to this summer concert are $15 pre-sale and $10 for Kamaaina Annual Pass holders. To make reservations call the PCC ticket office at (800) 367-7060. On Oahu, call 293-3333. For more information visit PCCKamaaina.com
