NextGen Showcase

October Livestream Extra to Feature NextGen LIVE!

September 26, 2021 • Addison ChingFestivals and Conventions

NextGen steel guitarists will be featured LIVE in a special Livestream broadcast of the Hawaiian Steel Guitar Showcase.

The Livestream Steel Guitar Saturday Extra! will be broadcast on October 16 as the first of two Livestream Steel Guitar Saturday broadcasts scheduled for October. The second broadcast will be livestreamed direct from Kaua‘i on October 30 and feature Ed Punua and Kilipaki Vaughan plus guest steel guitarists Ki‘ileiah Jenkins, Corrie Desierto, Ginger Kamalei and Heu‘i Bandmann.

The Extra! event will feature live performances by NextGen steel guitarists Enosa Lyman, Tai Misailidis, Pono Fernandez, Joey Misailidis, and Mālie Lyman. All NextGen artists in the livestream play multiple instruments, so it's possible that one or more may switch off to other instruments during performances to provide musical backup for the main NextGen performer. The all-star band, including Alan Akaka, Bobby Ingano, Greg Sardinha, Kaipo Asing and Helene Woodward, may also help with backup.

An all-star band kanikapila jam session will follow the NextGen performances if time permits.

Although the Showcase venue is outdoors, past livestream broadcasts have featured NextGen steel guitarists in prerecorded videos rather than in live performances. This was done to protect the health and safety of the NextGen steel guitarists during the pandemic and minimize the number of participants in the live broadcast. The first live NextGen performance was by Ethan Goore in the Hawai‘i Island livestream broadcast this past June.

The Hawaiian Steel Guitar Showcase is a series of livestreamed broadcasts designed to promote and perpetuate Hawaiian Culture, Hawaiian Music, and the Hawaiian Steel Guitar. The series comprises the Livestream Steel Guitar Saturday Showcase (featuring performances by two steel guitar masters,) a Livestream Kanikapila Showcase (home audience play-along with a live kanikapila all-star band,) and an Open Stage showcase (prerecorded videos submitted by steel guitarists worldwide.)

Showcases are broadcast live at least once each month on the Showcase's Facebook page and YouTube channel.
