Description

from Rock-A-Hula®
Rock-a-Hula! is a spectacular live concert featuring a "Hawaiian Journey" from 1920's to current through music and powerful performances by Legends Artists, hula, fire knife dancers and amazing musicians at the Royal Hawaiian Theater.

Along with legendary artists of yesteryear, our guests enjoy contemporary popular musical artistry showcased on the same stage as the thrilling historic performers. Imagine the “King of Rock n Roll” alongside the “King of Pop” singing on stage together with Elton John and Madonna. It happens 6 nights a week (excluding Mondays) at Legends in Concert Waikiki!

The 75-minute show was specifically developed for Hawaii and has been artistically infused with Hawaiian song and dance that underscores the island connections of the original artists. The concert begins with a huge, 42-foot tall, 3-screen visual experience that “lands” the audience in Hawaii where they are greeted by ancient Hawaiian chants and kahiko hula.

During the show, historic Hawaiian performances of the original artists are recreated through the magic of computerized projections of actual concert footage blended with live, on-stage singing and dancing by the tribute artists and a dozen professional dancers. The concert concludes as the audience joins in singing Aloha ‘Oe, the most beloved of all Hawaiian songs, composed by Princess Lili‘uokalani

The show’s name, “Rock-a-Hula!” is taken from the Elvis hit song, Rock-a-Hula Baby. The song’s mixed genre of rock and roll and Hawaiian folk captures the essence of Legends in Concert Waikiki.

"Totally Awesome Show"

Went to the Rock-A-Hula Luau Show on Mothers Day with my sister who was visiting from California. We were greeted by our beautiful server Megan who displayed all that the true meaning of aloha stands for. The food which consisted of some traditional local favorites was absolutely delicious. We were serenaded with some popular Hawaiian tunes along with some beautiful hula dancers. The show was awesome nonstop entertainment from beginning to ending. The tribute artists Elvis and Michael Jackson, local singer Sienna, the hula dancers and singers, and the fire dancer all did an amazing job. Last but not least was the awesome Rock-A-Hula Band. This is truly an awesome show to take your local or visiting family or friends to.

We enjoyed a wonderful evening at Rock-A-Hula. We chose not to have the stage side meal and we were so pleased we didn't. The atmosphere, food and entertainment were excellent at the general pre show meal. The show itself was fantastic, full of colour and energy. It was our best experience in Waikiki.

This show is very very very enjoyable! It not only includes great impersonators, but very great Hawaiian Entertainment. The band was beyond AWESOME, we took delight in taking pictures and meeting the very talented musical director Alfonso West and the awe-inspiring believable Impersonators after the show. The Hawaiian singers and dancers along with fire and knife act were outstanding. I also attended the Luau before the show which included interactive Hawaiian dance and song along with a very delicious buffet. I’ve attended numerous impersonator shows in Las Vegas, this one is amongst the best with a full range of entertainment with a great Hawaiian theme.
