Organized by the Nihonmachi Street Fair, the "Aloha by the Bay™" Music Series is an annual, non-profit charity concert held in San Francisco. This yearly concert brings together the musical talents of Hawai'i and the Bay Area for an evening of island inspired music that embraces our communities with the spirit of Aloha.
Proceeds from the concert directly benefit the Nihonmachi Street Fair, a non-profit organization whose mission is to foster leadership and communication skills for our youth, through volunteerism and community service.
This year's event features the tripled-powered trio of Kuini, comprised of Iwalani "Ho'o" Apo (ukulele), Keli Mahealani Viernes (upright bass) and Kapulanakehau Tamure (guitar), was formed by accident. When asked their name at a party they played at, the word “kuini” (queen) came up, since all the band members are transgendered. And that name has stuck ever since.
