Rock-A-Hula is an exciting show that combines the spirit of Aloha and the sparkle of Las Vegas. Our show takes guests on an "Hawaiian Journey" from the 1920s to today through an infusion of Polynesian acts, fire knife dancing, powerful performances by our talented tribute Elvis and Michael Jackson artists, creative choreography, dazzling costumes, hundreds of lighting combinations, special effects and even a few surprises, in the 750-seat Royal Hawaiian Theater.
The concept of our new show places a focus on homegrown talent, and we recently welcomed three new local songstresses to the stage. Irie Love and Sienna Souza, who joined the Rock-A-Hula cast for a combined 12-week run started on May 15. Also, in celebration of Rock-A-Hula entering its seventh year, we're offering other fantastic specials for our kama'aina friends to enjoy, such as our "Father's Day Dinner & Show" special and "Luau Rollback Special". Parking is super easy in the Royal Hawaiian Center and validation will be provided for reduced parking rate. For more details, please visit RockAHulaHawaii.com/kamspecials.
We wanted to be able to pay homage to Hawaii's rich musical history, so the addition of local artists, like Irie Love, is a natural evolution for us. She brings her own distinct style of music to the show – one that reflects Hawaii today. We're excited to be highlighting local artists for both our visitor and kama'aina guests, and show them that our islands are home to a bevy of talent as well. Stepping onto the Rock-A-Hula stage this month is local girl Irie Love, who was born in Kailua, Hawaii. During her nearly 20-year career, she has toured the world with notable artists such as Pink, Chaka Khan, Fiji, J Boog, Katchafire, and more. In 2012, she released her first album with two #1 charted singles, "It Is Wut It Is" and "My Love." Her single, "Step Up," also reached the #1 spot on reggae charts in Kenya, Uganda, Senegal, Costa Rica and Brazil, and her remix single "Better Than Love," debuted at #1 on Hawaiian and Jamaican radio.
