Highlighting Big Island Master Guitar Players All in One Show
Kailua Kona, HI: Today, Bottle of Blue announces the newest concept of entertainment for the Big Island of Hawaii, The Six-String Fling! This unique show will feature popular local band, Bottle of Blue performing along with local masters of guitar including Grammy award winner Larry Seyer, Hoku award winner Larry Dupio, plus David Lawrence, Steve Fundy, Tomi Isobe and Bottle of Blue’s own lead guitarist, Dan Corippo. The event takes place at the historic Aloha Theater in Kainaliu on September 21 at 7:00 pm. Tickets for reserved seats are on sale at the venue, online at apachawaii.org or Kiernan Music (Old Town Kainaliu, 7401, Hawaii Belt Rd, Kealakekua) for $35.
“Bottle of Blue, strives to create shows that involve the community and support local interests,” states Scott Reagan, lead vocalist of the band. “Recently we raised money for displaced animals when Pele’s lava flows continued to affect the Island by performing concerts from Kona to Mahukona Beach Park in Waimea. When Hurricane Lane came bearing down, we still wanted to play for our local fans and tourists alike. We tried to wait out the storm but unfortunately lightning strikes prevented the show.”
Reagan assures, “The Aloha Theater will not get rained out and the show must go on!” “Additionally,” he continues, “with all the talent and production, this may be the most entertaining show of the year as we strive to provide a visual and audio masterpiece for our guests.”
