Mahalo to our Performers 

Featuring: John Cruz 

MAIN STAGE: 4:45pm

Hawaiian singer-songwriter John Cruz engages audiences with rich storytelling through songs ranging from Hawaiian to blues, folk, R&B and more. Cruz is a  multi-time Nā Hōkū Hanohano Award-winner and contributed a composition and song to the GRAMMY® award-winning album ‘Slack Key Guitar, Vol. 2.’ Captivating guitar playing, soulful vocals and a compassionate, genuine heart make Cruz one of Hawaii’s most beloved artists.

On stage, he fully embodies every song with this alluring energy translating to his acclaimed albums, Acoustic Soul (one of the best selling Hawaii records of all time) and One of These Days (bowed at #4 on Billboard’s World Music chart). Today, over 1 million people stream Cruz’s music every year as he enjoys regular plays on SiriusXM, prominent features on hit Playing for Change videos (The Weight, Jokerman and All Along The Watchtower) and a new, long-term concert residency at one of Hawaii’s top listening rooms, ProArts Studio in Kihei, Maui.

John is actively raising funds for Hui O Wa'a Kaulua, a Maui voyaging canoe organization that was devastated in the Lahaina fires that claimed Wa’a Mo’olele, a voyaging double hull canoe. Hui O Wa’a Kaulua is looking for support so they can help develop and conduct model educational programs using voyaging to excite and challenge students and their communities.
