ABOUT QUADRAPHONIX

Quadraphonix believe that music from all around the world is inter-related as people and cultures are. A band that specializes in improvisational music that takes form as they play it live, their music is based on the theory of free form jazz, which is freedom of

musical expression. Within this expression, they showcase cultural music from their live experiences and their ancestry. Fusing Indian, Malaysian, Middle Eastern and Latin music with Western styles of Jazz, Blues and Funk is what they do best.

Quadraphonix has opened up for Grammy winners and nominees such as Black Eyed Peas and the Salsa Funksters, Ozomatli and Japanese Punk Ska group Kemuri at Club Chitta in Japan.

They have shared the stage with virtuosos such as Ukulele sensations Jake Shimabukuro and Taimane Gardner. In 2014, Quadraphonix joined forces with singer/song writer and poet, Iyeoka. This collaboration has taken them all over Europe and Asia. In the summer of 2014, Quadraphonix opened shows in Europe for artist such as Robert Plant and Blues Brothers for audiences up 20 thousand. They just returned from their Europe tour.

Born and raised in Oakland, CA, Aaron’s first musical love was classic hip hop, which motivated him to begin creating beats with a Roland MC-303. Inspired by the mid-90’s Bay Area hip hop sounds which often featured live instrumentation; he began to teach himself to play bass, guitar and keyboard. The bass quickly became his main instrument due to a natural affinity for creating baselines. With age, his music interests diversified as he sought out the roots of the hip-hop beats he grew up with. This lead to him becoming engrossed in funk and reggae, and he began playing shows around the San Francisco Bay Area.

Date: Saturday, May 30, 2015
Place: BAR 35 (35 N. Hotel Street, Honolulu, Hawaii)
Time: 9pm- 2am
Cover: $5 / age: 21+

Featuring Mistress of Ceremony Lana Saldania and DJ Nocturna and DJ Rhombus playing the best of the 80s and 90s. Come on down and also join us and celebrate the birthday of KTUH’s DJ Native Girl.

After the 80s came the 90s and we wouldn’t be here today without good memories of the music and the bands that made the 90s a special decade.

The 90s didn’t come too soon with techno, house, hip hop, grunge and alternative rock taking over the airwaves. Technotronic, MC Hammer and Vanilla Ice, C+C Music Factory, Pearl Jam, the Smashing Pumpkins, Sound Garden, Alice in Chains, Hole, Bush, Stone Temple Pilots, Oasis, Live, CandleBox, Nine Inch Nails, Radiohead, Tool and Nirvana are just some of the bands that defined the 90s.

As a tribute to the 90s, we invited local rockers STINK EYE to help us remember the 90s.

Before Stinkeye, there was Steppenstone, a 70’s-80’s classic rock band. Later their singer Stu, decided to change their name to Stinkeye. This was six years ago and since then they have evolved with a solid full band with current members and a female lead singer. With strong vocals, guitars, slammin’ drums and a killer bass groove, Stinkeye will be playing your favorite 80’s, 90’s and modern dance rock hits!

-Kevin Rost (drums) Stinkeye, Desert Sea, Sirens Call
-Cassie Fillhart (lead vocal, keys) Stinkeye, Erin Smith band
-Matt Mcpherson (bass) Stinkeye, Desert Sea, Erin Smith band
-Brian Mikami (guitar, vocals) Stinkeye, Desert Sea
