Mike Love & The Full Circle with Cas Haley
May 10 • 7:00 pm• $15 - $17
On Thursday, May 10, the Community Center for the Performing Arts and University of Oregon Campus Radio 88.1 FM KWVA proudly welcome Mike Love’s “The Great Remembering” Tour to the WOW Hall along with special guest Cas Haley.
With a foundation rooted in the spirituality and message-based music of reggae and Rastafari, Mike Love blends the sounds of progressive and classic rock, pop, R&B, soul, blues, flamenco, jazz and so much more. Healing is at the core of his music. With ever evolving live performances, Love keeps his fans returning again and again to witness the evolution of tried and true favorites, and the repertoire of new music that is constantly surfacing. Born and raised on the island of O’ahu, Hawai’i, Love was brought up in an environment of music and inspiring natural landscapes. Forging a deep connection with nature, his message of returning to a more natural and spiritually grounded way of living was solidified at an early age. He started playing the guitar at age 15 and played in multiple bands including Melodious Solutions and Dubkonscious, entering into his first studio experience as producer on the band’s album At the Foot of the Mountain. In 2008, he started a solo weekly residence, performing at a local Irish pub on Mondays. During his long four-hour sets there, he developed a unique one-man-band style, using looping, multiple instruments and an array of different vocal techniques and musical styles. In December of 2012, Love released his first solo album, the critically acclaimed The Change I’m Seeking — with instant classics like “Permanent Holiday”, “Barbershop”, and “Human Race”. National and international touring soon followed, with warm and enthusiastic receptions across Europe, Central America, Australia, Polynesia and more. Currently, Mike has formed a super-band, hand-picked from all of the top musicians he’s worked with over the years, dubbed aptly, Mike Love and the Full Circle. They have honed their skills and come together as a tight unit at home on O’ahu and have now begun to tour, taking Love’s music to even greater heights. As they prepare to return to the studio in 2018, we can anticipate that the new album they are concocting will be the most dynamic, heartfelt and spirited offering yet.
Texas native, Cas Haley is a soulful contemporary artist who has captured the heart of America through his upbeat Motown reminiscent melodic lyrics and rhythmic guitar-riffs, which are infused with a groovy surf-roots signature sound.
