Andre Nickatina to perform at Hard Rock

By Staff | Aug 11, 2011

A favorite at public venues and on college campuses, Andrea Nickatina continues to sustain a loyal fan base while engaging new supporters throughout North America.

LAHAINA — Hip-hop/rap luminary Andre Nickatina will perform two shows at the Hard Rock Cafe on Saturday, Aug. 13.

An all-ages matinee show starts at 3 p.m. (alcohol will be served to guests with proper ID), and an age 21 and over concert at 11 p.m.

Tickets are $30 in advance, available at Hard Rock Cafe, Requests Music in Wailuku, Westside Vibes in Lahaina and via www.luckymanhawaii.com.

Born and raised in the Fillmore District of San Francisco, Nickatina has been a hip-hop/rap star since the release of his critically acclaimed debut, “The New Jim Jones.”

His classic stage show combined with rare interviews maintain his mystery and unique musicianship that has spanned two decades.

An award-winning MC and producer (2005 Bay Area Artist of The Year/Album of The Year for “Bullets”), Nickatina’s vision has expanded beyond the 18 albums that he has executive-produced.

Also a diverse artist, Nickatina has gained critical acclaim for his work and vision as a filmmaker, with more than seven films to his credit as either a director, co-director, executive producer, producer or actor.

His third album, “Raven In My Eyes,” marked Nickatina’s shift as an artist and expanded his audience to the wildly enthusiastic college crowds that praise him with regular sellouts from coast to coast.

In 2008, he completed a timeless masterwork that paired he and his friend, Mac Dre (R.I.P.), together with the new classic, “A Tale of Two Andres.”
