Capturing the idealist dreams of a famed generation, a new musical performance by the Big Island band Lucky Tongue will debut at the Kahilu Theatre on Wednesday, May 23, 2018 at 7:00 pm.
My Generation is a rock and roll show featuring music of the 1960’s and offers inspiration from such iconic songs as Joni Mitchell’s “Woodstock” and The Mamas & The Papas’ “California Dreaming.” The creators of the show hope to establish a new connection of the past with today’s audiences. Tickets are $25 for and can be purchased at kahilutheatre.org, (808) 885-6868 or at the Kahilu Theatre Box Office located at 67-1186 Lindsey Road, Kamuela.
“My Generation demonstrates how important messages are often overlooked in popular music,” says Lucky Tongue band member Blaine Ward. The group wants “to remind audiences of [the]dream of world peace and are motivated by songs that are a call to a lifestyle that is in harmony with nature,” says Ward.
Lucky Tongue toured for eight years across the United States, United Kingdom, Canada and Mexico before deciding their home would be the Big Island. The three core members of the group are family members Dylan Ward on percussions, Blade Ward on lead guitar, and Blaine Ward on bass and harmonica. Performing with them at Kahilu Theatre will be internationally acclaimed British guitarist Robin Le Mesurier, who has toured with Rod Stewart and Jimmie Hallyday. Also joining them are Linnea Minbiole on cello, and Waimea’s own Scotty Nelson on keyboards, as well as the vivacious dancers and backing vocalists Ireland and Gillian Ward, and Marlena and Sabrina Jeffrey.
