presents an evening with ‘John Cruz LIVE’

Prepare yourself for a memorable evening as treasured Hawaiian musician John Cruz and his band makes his way to the Palace Theatre stage.

25 years later, John Cruz looks back on ‘Acoustic Soul’ …… Few artists in Hawaii have released such an accomplished debut recording as “Acoustic Soul.” “I had left Hawaii for a while because I wanted to expand my musical being. I was searching for my musical voice,” Cruz said. “I never played traditional Hawaiian music growing up. At that time, there was only one club on Oahu where you could play original music, Anna Banana’s. Thus, “mama’s in the kitchen” became one of the lines in Cruz’s classic song “Island Style” on his album “Acoustic Soul,” released in 1996
