Makaha Sons to play Monday in Kennewick

The Makaha Sons, considered one of Hawaii's premiere musical groups, will bring their traditional Hawaiian sound to the Tri-Cities on Monday.

The Sons are a trio of Hawaiian musicians that include Louis "Moon" Kauakahi on 6-string guitar, John Koko on upright acoustic bass and Jerome Koko on 12-string guitar.

But these are not new musicians to the Hawaiian scene. They've been together for more than three decades and have performed all over the world, including in such notable venues as Carnegie Hall in New York City.

And what Polynesian music would be complete without a touch of hula dancing?

The show also features Kealo Koko performing the elegant and traditional stylings of the hula dance.

Their American tour, titled Take a Walk in the Country, starts at 7 p.m. at The Living Room Community Church, 711 W. Vineyard Drive, Kennewick. Admission is $20 at the door.
