Ron Artis II & Thunderstorm at The MACC April 9
Ron Artis II & Thunderstorm will perform at the Maui Arts & Cultural Centers McCoy Studio Theater on Saturday, April 9, 2016, beginning at 7:30 p.m.
Brothers Ron Artis II and Thunderstorm skyrocketed to the upper ranks of the O‘ahu music scene in 2015. Maui audiences should catch this intimate show now before they blossom onto bigger stages.
Their talents will be showcased in ideal fashion in the warm, acoustically rich confines of the McCoy Studio Theater. Ron and Thunderstorm will perform as a duo with no accompaniment other than their golden voices, acoustic guitar, cajon, and harmonica. This format allows the natural beauty of their instruments and singing to shine big and bright.
Over the past year, Ron and Thunderstorm have caught the eye and ear of everyone from Booker T. Jones to Jack Johnson to John Cruz and Paula Fuga. With heavenly harmonies, standout musicianship and a treasure trove of moving, original songs, the Artis brothers prove that roots music is alive and well in contemporary culture.
“I was bowled over the first time hearing the Artis brothers!” said Maui music critic Jon Woodhouse. “Apart from their exemplary musicianship, the duo’s voices are silky smooth, their lyrics are uplifting and they have a gift for composing catchy, soulful songs that are instantly memorable.”
Tickets are $20 and $30 (plus applicable fees).
