Gabe Kila & Nanakuli Sons

Gabe Kila & the Nanakuli Sons were a very popular Hawaiian music combo in the 1970s.
The leader was born Gabriel K. Kilakalua, Jr. and he hailed from Nanakuli.
He played ukulele.
Gabe “Kila” was his stage name in an era of limited Hawaiian language skills in audiences.
Dennis P. Keohokalole, from the Windward side, played bass.
He used ‘Bla’ as his stage name.
Sterling Kalua, the organist, was from Nanakuli.
Jimmy Dawson, the drummer, hailed from Waipahu.
Together, their polished vocal harmonies, and tight nightclub act made them headliners at Dell Webb’s Kuilima Hotel.
In 1974, they recorded 2 albums: one in the studio, and one live at the White Whale Lounge at the Kuilima Hotel.
Today, we’ll listen to those rare out-of-print recordings from the Territorial Airwaves archives.

Andy Cummings & Sol K Bright

Kolomone, or Solomon, Kalamuhia Kekipi Ke Ali’ika’apuni Ku Keala O Ka Mahanahana Bright, was born on November 9, 1909, and he left us at the age of 83, on April 27, 1992.
Andrew Kealoha Cummings was born on August 2, 1913, and he left us at the age of 81, on June 23, 1995.
These 2 gentlemen entertained together often for Hawaiian Airlines in the 1950s and 1960s, so the always enterprising Andy Cummings put out a record of the two performing some of their hits, in the late 1960s, on the Hawaiian Melodies label.

Alice Namakelua

Ku’uleialohapoina’ole Kanakaoluna was born on August 12, 1892 in Honoka’a, on the Big Island of Hawaii.
In school, her teacher, who could not pronounce her Hawaiian name, dubbed the young girl, “Alice”.
As a child, she was raised to sing, and play the slack key and steel guitars.
Moving to Honolulu in 1927, she eventually joined the Honolulu Parks Department, where she would educate generations of keiki.
We lost Auntie Alice on April 27, 1987, at the age of 94.
