Since 1969, the Iolani Stage Bands have delighted crowds at venues all over the island of O'ahu, Hawaii. As the first high school jazz ensemble in the state of Hawaii, the group has expanded to three stage bands, all of which entertain audiences with incredible musical skill and energy. The ensemble also includes a phenomenal jazz combo that performs at smaller venues and special events, as well as a nonperforming rhythm section class for students to develop and master rhythmic instruments. The Iolani Stage Bands captivate audiences in both small and large settings, from private events to the Aloha Tower stage. The group has also traveled both within the USA and internationally, such as Texas, Japan, and Germany. Whether you take a seat at Hawaii Theater in May or just get a glimpse while at Ward Warehouse, you can guarantee that the student musicians of the Iolani Stage Bands will play their hearts out and deliver a lively and thrilling performance like nothing else.
This playlist is constantly updated by a former Iolani Stage Bands student who promises to attempt to attend as many of these concerts as possible.
