In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Woodstock festival, Big Island’s Latin-Gypsy-Funk band, Leche de Tigre, and additional talented Big Island musicians will present ShakaStock: The Best of Three Days of Peace and Music. On Saturday, Oct. 26, 2019, at 7 p.m. at the Kahilu Theatre, these entertainers will recreate some of the most memorable performances from the original Woodstock festival in 1969. Ticket info below.
On a 600-acre dairy farm in the Catskill Mountains of New York, nearly half a million people gathered for what is now known as one of the most legendary events in rock history: the Woodstock Music and Art Fair. The time was a tumultuous and divided one: protests throughout the 1960s in opposition of the Vietnam War, and for civil rights and equality, were abundant and substantial influencers on the younger generation and consequently on the music of the time. The result was a community of young ‘rebels’, lovers of music and peace, whose common goal was social change and to bring an end to the Vietnam War.
ShakaStock performers include Dan Brauer (Leche de Tigre), will provide lead and rhythm guitar and channel Carlos Santana and Jimi Hendrix. Abraham “Bubba” Lee Myers of RealEyeZen as Joe Cocker and Alvin Lee of Ten Years After. Malia Spencer-Chaul of Ms Demeanor and The Felons as Janis Joplin. Joey Bradley as Richie Havens and Sly Stone. Cayenne Clarke as Joni Mitchell. Stephanie Lou Tatum as Joan Baez. Alicia Maher as Grace Slick of Jefferson Airplane and Melanie (Safka), and Samantha Wilson, Cayenne Clarke, Alice Maher, and Stephanie Lou Tatum on backup vocals and as Crosby, Stills and Nash. Other musicians include Chris Wilson on drums, Robby Malovic on bass, Scott Van-Spronsen on keyboard and congas, Michaeloha Elam on trumpet, Ian Work on saxophone, Jocelyn Michelle on Hammond organ, Lauren Broido on lead guitar, Joe Marcelin on congas and timbales, and Lucas Lessa on lead guitar.
Ronnie Velveta, of Ronnie V. and the Family Band, will provide lead vocals and rhythm guitar, performing as Country Joe McDonald, Bob “The Bear” Hite of Canned Heat, and Levon Helm (vocals) of The Band. Musicians joining Ronnie Velveta include Shaun Barnes on violin, Jason Fischer on harmonica, Kevin Snow on mandolin, Jerry Adams on drums, and Chazz Alley on flute.
