Kahulanui is an inspiration passed down three generations from Grandfather Robert Kahulanui, to Dad Rodgers L. L. Naipo, Sr., to Grandson and Kahulanui band leader, Lolena Naipo, Jr. Lolena remembers stories of his Grandfather who was a member of the Royal Hawaiian Band during an era when horns and drums were a part of Hawaiian music." Throughout Hawaii in the 1920s and 30s, one could find orchestras playing Hawaiian Swing and the house would be jumping. Kahulanui borrows from these influences and performs classic Hawaiian songs in a syncopated style making Hawaiian Swing vibrant and alive in Hawaii today. Kahulanui's execution of big-band stylings evokes an era of smoke-filled bars alive with lindy-hopping dancers. Underlying this contemporary take on vintage music, moreover, is a cultural cohesiveness of enacting ku'i-of joining old and new. Like, awesome! Kahulanui is a quartet made up of the core instrumentation in contemporary Hawaiian music-Lolena Naipo, Jr. on guitar and Patrick Eskildsen on guitar and bass, and Robert Duke Tatom on 'ukulele, plus Tim Taylor on drums. The quartet is augmented by a full-blown horn section with Jesse Snyder and Bill Noble on saxophones, Dave Clausnitzer on trumpet, Vincenzo D'Angelo on trombone and on the iconic sound of steel guitar: Dwight Tokumoto.
