Nuff Sedd—David Wood, Duane Rosa, Kit Okazaki and Joshua Kahula—will celebrate the release of a new CD, Life … in a Song, at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center on Saturday, Sept. 17.
Nuff Sedd burst onto Hawai‘i’s entertainment scene several years ago with a fresh, innovative interpretation of reggae music. On Saturday, Sept. 17, the local band with a huge following will celebrate the release of its new CD with a party under the Yokouchi Pavilion at Maui Arts & Cultural Center (MACC), beginning at 6 p.m. Special guest artists are The Kryptones, Alika Nako‘oka, Pi‘ilani Arias, Lia Live and HHB.
With the release of their debut album, Open Doors for Strangers, Nuff Sedd dominated record sales and drew sell-out crowds throughout Hawai‘i and the South Pacific. At the 2005 Hawai‘i Music Awards, the band won “Best New Artist,” “Group of the Year” and “Song of the Year” awards.
Raised on the slopes of Haleakalä in Upcountry Maui, the band members have performed together for over 10 years. Members include Joshua Kahula (lead vocals, guitar and songwriter), David Wood (bass guitar, songwriter), Kit Okazaki (tenor saxophone) and Duane Rosa (drums, percussion).
In recent years, the guys have been writing, composing and recording, and have now completed their much-anticipated second record. The new CD, titled Life… in a Song, includes ten tracks of cutting-edge original music, which masterfully crosses genres, including island, reggae, rock, acoustic and R&B.
From the band that brought our community hits like Cherry Bomb, Life is Perfect and Simple Eye, the new CD is guaranteed to be one of the top releases of 2011 in Hawai‘i. Their first single from the record Bits & Pieces currently dominates the airwaves across the state and the Pacific.
Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 on show day (plus applicable fees). This concert is only open to adults 21 years and over. Call the MACC Box Office at 242-SHOW (7469) or go online to MauiArts.org
