Danny Couch's new Waikiki show debuts tonight
News ReleaseVocalist Danny Couch opens his first self-produced show at 7:30 tonight at the Sheraton Princess Kaiulani Hotel. "Danny Couch: The Voice of These Islands" is a musical journey of Hawaiian, contemporary and classic songs.
"I just felt the time was right to go on my own after a career of working for others," said Couch. "I am truly grateful to everyone I've worked with over the years. I have learned so much and feel very blessed for all they've shared with me, and so thankful to all of my fans who have followed me wherever I've been. I look forward to seeing them at the Ainahau Showroom!"
The Na Hoku Hanohano Award-winning Couch has come a long way since singing in the choir at Nanakuli High School, and even as a standout with the Alii's where he sang lead for hits like "Lady You're My Rainbow" and "Here I Am." He has performed around the world and in long-running shows in Waikiki to rave reviews, and is the man behind one of Hawai'i's "anthems" "These Islands." Couch also has his own record label and production company.
