Calabash Uncle Steve

Calabash Steve

Calabash Steve fell in love with the aloha sounds in the early 70s, as many have, upon first hearing the Gabby Pahinui Hawaiian Band release produced by Ry Cooder.

Steve loves the ki ho’alu or slack key guitar repertoire and features many of the giants of the genre. Artists like Gabby, Uncle Raymond Kane, Sonny Chillingworth and Leonard Kwan.

Uncle Steve hosts the Hawaii Radio Connection when there are 5 Saturdays in the month.
