Dinner, followed by an impromptu jam session that was the moment that everything happened. It was the first time that we sang and we knew right then. It was the beginning of Cecilio & Kapono!
Soon came amazing duo performances including the infamous Frank Zappa concert and Hawaii's "Woodstock", The Diamond Head Crater "Sunshine Festival", leading to 8 consecutive months of SOLD OUT performances 6 nights a week at the Legendary Rainbow Villa in Waikiki. As the Villa literally ripped piece after piece of the bar out, they still could not keep up with the "C&K" phenomena.
Inevitably, C&K moved to The Waikiki Shell, Hawaii's Amphitheatre under the stars nestled at the foot of Diamond Head, where they still hold the largest attendance record with 10,000 fans inside and another 4000 outside! Within a couple of months, C&K had a multi-album National Recording Contract with the world's largest Record Company, Columbia Records.
Back to back SOLD OUT Waikiki Shell shows were followed by back to back SOLD OUT H.I.C. (now Neal Blaisdell Arena) shows that were followed by RECORD ATTENDANCE of 22,000+ at the Honolulu Stadium with Flash Cadilac & America and 30,000+ with their local brothers, Kalapana!
C&K went on to tour the Nation sharing the stage with some of the greatest American Artists of the time, Santana, Loggins & Messina, Boz Scaggs, Peter Frampton, Cheech & Chong. The list goes on!
Over the course of 3 decades, The LEGENDS that are Cecilio & Kapono, have become a household name throughout Hawaii and the Pacific. They have performed extensively throughout the world and continue to sell out every concert. Their impressive list of compositions have produced hit after hit and have become local standards, whether performed by C&K or other top performers, firmly rooted in Hawaii's culture and firmly rooted in the hearts of 3 generations of fans!
