Anela Kahiamoe will drive the winter chill away

Hawaiian get-away at Crofton Hotel Pub

Anela Kahiamoe brings his eclectic, Hawaiian-flavoured repertoire to town.

Want to escape the winter blues for a while, and get into some Hawaiian Jazz? Then book Sunday, Nov. 22 at the Crofton Hotel Pub for a three hour get-away.

That’s when multi-instrumentalist singer/songwriter Anela Kahiamoe brings his eclectic, Hawaiian-flavoured repertoire to town.

Originally from Hawaii, Kahiamoe performs regularly throughout the Comox Valley on guitar and ukulele in styles ranging from jazz to rock, from country to blues and reggae.

A pro since he was 17, Kahiamoe has appeared at Vancouver Island Musicfest as both a solo artist and with Sue Medley and the Backroad Band.

His latest CD, Through the Years, is a solo compilation of songs recorded over the past 20 years.

Sunday’s concert is part of the weekly Jazz at Crofton series, which runs every Sunday from 2 to 5 p.m. at the pub, 1534 Joan Ave. in Crofton.

Musicians are invited to join in a jam session in the final hour of the afternoon.

Admission is $10. For information, phone 250-324-2245 or visit croftonhotel/ca.
