Streetlight Cadence to play at the MACC

By Staff | Dec 14, 2017

Although they come from a strict classical background of musical performance, the men of Streetlight Cadence are anything but your typical trio.

KAHULUI – Streetlight Cadence, an alternative folk-pop band that started on the streets of historic Waikiki, will play a concert on Saturday, Dec. 16, at 7:30 p.m. at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center.

What began as a means to pay for groceries has now turned into a full-time career for this group of friends.

Driven by their infectious storytelling and whimsicality, Streetlight Cadence has made its mark on Hawaii’s musical landscape.

With this tour, they are promoting the release of their self-titled EP, “SLC,” which is designed to represent the evolution of the band’s songwriting and Hawaii-born folk-pop sound and style.

In the past year, the band won an award for their original song “Big Big Life,” which was also a top five finalist in the Great American Song Contest; they headlined the 2016 Hawaii Bowl halftime show; they held their first full tour of a country outside the U.S., performing in five cities in their debut “Hello Japan Tour;” and they headlined the 2017 Hawaii Songwriting Festival, sharing the stage with two-time Grammy Award winner Jason Mraz.?

“Streetlight Cadence is the most refreshing breeze to hit our shores in years. This ensemble offers unconventional instrumentation served with warm engaging ambiance. It’s a matter only of time before the group is nominated for a Grammy Award. The lads have the look, the sound and that ‘something’ ingredient that shouts success,” wrote Wayne Harada of the Honolulu Star-Advertiser.

Tickets are $20, $30 or $45; call 242-SHOW or visit www.MauiArts.org.
