Throughout his career, John Cruz has delivered the full package — soulful vocals, supreme musicianship and stellar songs. Don’t miss your chance to experience the Hawai’i legend himself next month on Kaua‘i.

Cruz will present a wonderful night of music and community connection April 29 at Porter Pavilion at Anaina Hou Community Park in Kīlauea. The concert starts at 5:45 p.m. Cruz will be joined by special guest Bronson Aiwohi. Tickets are available online now.

The park is excited to have Cruz back on its stage, opening his heart and extending a compassionate hand to everyone who attends.


A Hawai‘i legend, Cruz engages audiences with rich storytelling through songs ranging from Hawaiian to blues, folk, R&B and more. He is a multi-time Nā Hōkū Hanohano Award-winner and contributed a composition and song to the Grammy award-winning album “Slack Key Guitar, Vol. 2.” Cruz captured his latest Nā Hōkū Hanohano Award with his single “It’s Time to Build A Bridge” being voted 2022 Music Video of the Year.

With more than 1 million people streaming his music each year, Cruz is one of Hawaii’s most beloved artists.

He continues to electrify venues throughout the islands with a band that rocks and enthralls, bringing to life classic songs alongside new tunes that hit equally hard. On stage, he embodies every song with an alluring energy that translates to his acclaimed albums “Acoustic Soul” and “One of These Days.”
