Kahuna. The cluny. Newcastle. 30.1.19

Up for it from the word go, Kahuna, a six-piece, heavily ska-influenced outfit, are on fine form tonight at the launch of their new single ‘All the same’.  Underscored by the traditional ska trick of never standing still, Kahnua spend the evening dancing, jiving and encouraging their audience to likewise.  Most effective when playing the new single, and on their Coral ‘Dreaming of you’ cover, this is a band who know how to make an impact and how to sculpt audience participation.

A footnote to chief support band ‘Northern Horizon’ who’s precise pop punk sounds were so well executed that it feels a shame that this, their penultimate gig together, will be one of their last.
