John Cruz @ Pono Hawaiian Grill
Starts: 6:00 pm
Ends: March 29, 2015 - 7:00 pm
Location: Pono Hawaiian Grill, 120 Union Street, Santa Cruz, CA 95060, United States
Description: Pono Hawaiian Grill and The Reef Bar is excited to announce that John Cruz will be back in town and on stage Sunday March 29th. The show starts at 6:00 pm but an early arrival is recommended as it will surely fill quickly. Our own Patti Maxine will share the stage w/ John. Great Music + Great food + Great vibes = BE THERE – ISLAND STYLE.

If you have seen/heard John before I’m sure this news will excite you, but if it is your first time, I guarantee you are in for a treat. Toby Gray (formerly sound engineer at Don Quixote’s International Music Hall) who has been the sound man for John many times in the past, will perform that important task @ Pono.

Santa Cruz’s own Patti Maxine (AKA Ace Steeler) will back up and support John as she has done whenever he comes to town. It’s fantastic, tho not surprising, how well these two blend and compliment each other. John always plays a few hulas in his shows, so dancers are certainly invited.

In a departure from the usual, there will be a cover charge of $20 for this event. Seating will be on a “first come-first seated” basis.
