Outstanding Individual in Music & Entertainment
Congratulations to Henry Kapono, the winner of “Outstanding Individual in Music & Entertainment” at the aio Media and Hawaii Lodging & Tourism Association’s Inaugural Awards Program last night. Your leadership in the Hawai’i Music industry is unparalleled and we are beyond grateful for your passion and presence.
On Friday, February 23, Johnny joined Henry Kapono and Alx Kawakami as they shared their music across Maui, visiting Hale Maha’olu, Aloha House, Kalama Intermediate School and Hale a Ke Ola Resource Center. They had a great time playing the classic tunes of C&K as they geared up for their concert at the Maui Arts and Cultural Center where they were joined by Blayne Asing for the big event.
Thank you to everyone who helped to make the weekend a great success!
Special thanks to Johnny’s latest sponsor, Nicola Brand Strings.
“These hand-wound guitar strings offer a rich, warm tone with the flexibility to bend the strings while staying in tune. The first time I tried them, I knew they would be the only strings for me.”

Special thanks to the “Concert King” Martin Nievera
Special thanks to Martin Nievera for a great run at the Blue Note Hawaii! It was an honor to perform with Martin and to be surrounded by incredible musicians like Musical Director Marvin Querido, bass player John Kolivas, and drummer Stacy Tonganan. Thanks also to Vicki Nievera, Maila Gibson, Rocky Brown and John Kaina for adding their powerful vocals. Let’s do it again soon!
