Waikiki Beach Walk’s Na Mele No Na Pua Sunday Showcase shifts to a monthly schedule

with performances every third Sunday of the month



WAIKIKI, OAHU, HAWAII  Hawaiian musician Ernie Cruz Jr., opens this year’s Na Mele No Na Pua Sunday Showcase Concert Series at Waikiki Beach Walk with a performance on Sunday, January 15, 2012, from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Waikiki Beach Walk Plaza Stage.


This popular free concert series, presented by Outrigger Enterprises Group, Waikiki Beach Walk and Embassy Suites-Waikiki Beach Walk, shifts to a monthly schedule in 2012 with performances held on the third Sunday of each month and featuring some of Hawaii’s most notable musical entertainers and groups.


Leading off 2012 is Ernie Cruz Jr. who comes from a musical background. His father, Ernie Cruz, was a singer and guitarist who worked with David “Kawika” Crowley and was active in the music scene on the islands in the 1970s, while his brother, Guy Cruz, performs in the Hawaiian ensemble Pure Heart. Ernie Cruz Jr. first made a name for himself as a member of the Ka’au Crater Boys, one of the most popular musical duos on the islands in the 1990s. In 1997, he recorded his first solo album, “Time and a Season,” and followed that up with his 2001 release, “Portraits.” Since then, his music has gained national attention and he has performed with a number of renowned musical artists, including Eddie Vedder, Jack Johnson and Amy Hanaiali’i Gilliom.
