Event Description

Somewhere between the charisma of Frank Sinatra, the empathetic tone of Bob Marley, and the smooth and sultry vocal runs of Lauryn Hill, lives the warm and kind voice of Sammy Johnson. An Australian native, Sammy J embraces his Maori and Polynesian roots to create positive and uplifting music. Blending together island reggae, soul, and jazz vibes with heartfelt lyrics, Sammy’s sound is exhilarating and intoxicating.

Polynesian recording artist George “Fiji” Veikoso is one of the most original and dynamic entertainers the Pacific Rim has produced who continues to be one of the most influential artists in contemporary Island Reggae music. 

The name Anuhea translates from Hawaiian as a fragrance or cool breeze. In the world of island/reggae music, Maui songbird Anuhea Jenkins has been just that: a cool breeze to the island music scene. This multi-talented artist entered the room in 2009 like a breath of fresh island air, beautifully blending vibes of reggae, pop, R&B, and even country. 

A Filipino native who moved with her family to Hawaii as a youngster, Eli-Mac (Ciara-Camile Roque Velasco) is a rebel who combined island music with R&B and hip-hop. At the tender age of 18, Camile landed a spot on American Idol as a Top 10 finalist. She discovered her sound by combining her three favorite genres – roots reggae, hip-hop and R&B.

This performance event takes place during the 2022 OC Fair and includes Fair admission on the date of the event only.
