Antique Aloha is the first in a series of recordings inspired by some of my favorite Hawaiian 78 RPM records from the Golden Age of Hawaiian Music. I play all the instruments including steel guitar, ukuleles, guitar, and baritone guitar.
Antique Aloha Live!
During "The Hawaiian Craze," from 1915 to 1930, more Hawaiian records were sold than any other genre of music across the United States! As a result, lovers of this era of American music have a hard time avoiding this exciting, upbeat, acoustic music. Join avid 78RPM record collector and professional musician Christo Ruppenthal for a unique solo vintage music concert. Christo will recreate the sounds of vintage Hawaiian records live on steel guitar and ukulele. Repertoire is primarily pulled from his series of Antique Aloha CDs. Step back into this "Golden Age of Hawaiian Music" for some Antique Aloha Live!
