The music of Henry Kapono absolutely needs to be on everyone’s “Relax” ipod playlist. I was scrolling through my ipod looking for a great island artist to write about today and boom, their was Henry Kapono. I’ve written about Henry one other time a while back and raved about his “Dukes on Sunday” song and posted a video. Probably my favorite song of his.
I was browsing the vast YouTube again for some Henry Kapono videos and found this one of him and his band singing Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville. As you can see by the video the scenery at this beach side hotspot named Dukes is spectacular. Henry plays every Sunday at the famous Dukes located on Hawaii’s Waikiki Beach. There may be no more exciting place to people-watch than at the Dukes. One might say it’s the coolest place to be on the island. The Zagat Survey has named Duke’s Waikiki Hawaii’s Most Popular Nightlife Venue. Live music, stunning views of Waikiki and Diamond Head, beautiful people and tropical cocktails…does it get any better than that?
