Southern California Slack Key Festival 2024

(HOLLYWOOD PRESS CORPS) — Redondo Beach, CA — Sunday, January 14th, 2024 — The Slack Key festival at the Redondo Beach performing arts center went down this last Sunday, January 14th. There were amazing talents from Hawaiian music like Jim “Kimo” West, Jerry Santos, Hiikua, Jeff Peterson, Sean Parks, Namaka Costa, Leokane Pryor and Ken Emerson played an amazing afternoon of music.

The Redondo Beach Performing Arts Center was packed! People come every year to hear these acoustic guitars with no drums. For some, they listen to remind them of thew aloha spirit of a Hawaii that they have visited. For others, they dream of an island state that they might visit one day. There was a Hawaiian market outside with plate lunches and Hawaiin treasures. Everyone really appreciated the Slack key music.  It was great seeing some of the same players from last year and the new players were a welcome addition.
