Event description

Description

BEAT-LELE is comprised of four Beatle-loving musicians who hail from the Island of Oahu. Having performed for numerous years as a Beatles tribute band in Hawaii, they decided to reinvent themselves and fuse the beautiful music of The Beatles with their passion of playing ukuleles. There is no other musical group in the world we are aware of combining the timeless music of The Beatles to the soaring popularity of the ukulele with added percussion of a cajon. In 2017, BEAT-LELE performed with Na Hoku Hanohano Winner, Halemanu on stage and was nominated as a finalist for the Most Promising Artist of the Year and the Favorite Artist of the Year categories. Performed at the Cavern Club at the International Beatle Week Festival in Liverpool. With Sonny Aquino as "John", Nolet Quiason as "Paul", Alastar McNeil as "George" and Dennis Muth as "Ringo", each band member sings and performs their respective parts as one would expect from the original recording. BEAT-LELE spans the career of The Beatles from Love Me Do through their later years of Let It Be and Abbey Road and everything in between. Their impeccable attention to musical detail will make you wonder if you are hearing the actual recordings!

Kris Fuchigami and his mother, Keiko will be the opening act of our show, with Kris performing his magical talent with his ukulele. Born and raised on the Big Island of Hawaii, At the age of 15, Kris won the grand prize at the Hamakua Music Scholarship Competition on the Big Island where he competed against classical pianists, singers, drummers, and many other genres of musicians. Kris went on to headline, and perform at many ukulele festivals and has gained recognition throughout the world. In 2016, he was nominated for the prestigious Na Hoku Hanohano Award in Hawaii for the Instrumental Composition of the Year category with his original composition of Moemoea, which he was inspired to write during a performing tour in Tahiti. In 2018, he was again nominated for the Na Hoku Hanohano Awards for the Ukulele Album of the Year Category with his album entiled "More Than This".
