Citylife did a great writeup on HaleAmanO a few days ago.
“There’s actually a huge Hawaiian community here, which I didn’t know until joining this band,” Parkhurst says. “This is the ninth island, so they say,” Beavers adds. “That’s the nucleus of our fanbase. It’s been the best fanbase I’ve ever seen. It’s tight-knit: They show up to a lot of shows, and they’re very supportive … and the casinos love us because the music’s clean and positive.”
