Ho'omana

Saturday, September 21, 2019

Enjoy an afternoon of Hawaiian music, as Ho'omana returns to Menlo Park!

Enjoy the sound of the islands, with a performance by the Ho'omana Hawaiian Band!

About Ho'omana

Originally formed in 2001, the Ho’omana Hawaiian Band is known throughout Northern and Central California for its instantly-recognizable sound, focusing on fresh arrangements of traditional and contemporary Hawaiian songs with beautiful three-part harmonies.

Band leader Manley Bush handles 6-string slack-key guitar and ukulele, Robert Ucangco is on rhythm guitar, and Eddy Navarro plays bass.  All three musicians share lead and backup vocals.  As Ho’omana plays many hulas, dancers are invited to participate whenever you know the song – or even if you don’t.

This free event has received funding support from the Friends of the Menlo Park Library.

Lisa Burns has won the best bass player award for several years from the Northern California Bluegrass Society. She has also played in numerous bands around the bay area and is sought after to lend the bass parts to many recordings.
Lee Anne Welch won best fiddle player 2013 and 2018 and Kim Elking for best mandolin player in 2009. Both Lee Anne and Kim have won the Lifetime Achievement awards also from the Northern California Bluegrass Society.
