HE'S regarded as Rock'n'Roll royalty in New Zealand and for the first time in 20 years John Rowles will be back on stage in Honolulu performing his hit song ‘Cheryl Moana Marie’ and much more in a concert jam packed with the songs and nostalgic memories from his time spent in his home away from home Hawaii.
By 1970 was Rowles was brought by entrepreneur and show business legend KIMO WILDER McVAY to Duke Kahanamoku’s in Waikiki, Hawaii.
By 1972, still at the young age of 25, John signed a 5 year contract with the Royal Hawaiian Hotel, ‘The Pink Palace’ to sing in their Monarch Room. His residency at the ‘Supper Club’ was six nights a week, two shows a night, and from that point on Hawaii welcomed John Rowles as one of their own. The song Cheryl Moana Marie went on to become a huge No. 1 hit for John in Hawaii.
John went on to perform before 1000’s of people over the next 15 years in Hawaii at a variety of showrooms, receiving Hawaii’s highest entertainment award the ‘No Ka Oi’ amongst many other accolades. Despite the constant performing schedule John continued to record and release many albums including Hawaiian songs such as Jay Larrin’s ‘The snows of Mauna Kea’, Bruddah Iz’s ‘In this life’ and many more. Since 1990 John based himself in Sydney Australia until 2007 before coming home to New Zealand where he continues to tour New Zealand and Australia to this day.
