Our Hawaiian Vacation: Willie K in Concert

The morning and afternoon hours of our thirteenth day in Hawaii (May 29) were gray and rainy. However, by late afternoon the rain had stopped. This was good, as we planned to attend an outdoor concert that evening. The concert was performed by Willie K, and we consider the concert one of the highlights of our Hawaiian vacation. The concert was held at the Keauhou Shopping Center in Kona. Bob, John and I attended the concert. Dorothy had to work, so she could not attend the concert. Cost of admission was two cans of food per person for Hawaii Food Basket. According to the Keauhou Shopping Center Facebook page, over 1700 pounds of food and over $150 in cash were collected for Hawaii Food Basket.

A local group by the name of Jahternative opened the show for Willie K. Jahternative played a mix of Hawaiian, Reggae and Jawaiian songs.

I found this photograph in a photo album submitted to the Keauhou Shopping Center Facebook page. Bob, John and I are in this photograph. John is sitting in the back row, on the far right. Bob and I are sitting in front of John. Bob is wearing a green baseball cap, and I have on a red flowered blouse.
If you look across the bevy of spectators, you will see a man who is standing and who is wearing a colorful outfit. Here’s a close-up picture of that man.

Willie K is amazing! Willie K is humorous, and he is passionate. Willie K plays the guitar and ukulele spectacularly, and his voice is magnificent. We thoroughly enjoyed his concert!

I wonder if the photographer on the left is the one who took the picture of Bob, John and me at the concert?

Are you curious about how Willie K sounds? Bob videotaped one of his songs 🙂
