The Alphabet Rockers

October 21, 2022 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

A FREE Family Performance by two-time Grammy nominees THE ALPHABET ROCKERS Performance in Castle Theater Friday, October 21 

Kahului, MAUI – The Maui Arts & Cultural Center presents in a special FREE performance for the Maui community, The  Alphabet Rockers, a multiracial, intergenerational, two-time Grammy-nominated group, on Friday, October 21 in Castle  Theater at 5:30 pm. Registration is online only and is available now at MauiArts.org. The Alphabet Rockers performance  is another free community event hosted by the MACC.  

Alphabet Rockers is a hip-hop children’s music collective based in Oakland, California led by Kaitlin McGaw and Tommy  Soulati Shepherd. The group has been speaking truth to power for over a decade through children’s media — music,  videos, school curriculum, and performances. Presenting music from their Grammy-nominated albums in this special  free performance for Maui families, the Alphabet Rockers inspire kids and families to stand up to hate and be their brave  and beautiful selves. Diverse audiences love the contemporary sound and positive messages ‒ shaping a more equitable  world through hip-hop music and dance. 

As W. Kamau Bell, Emmy-Award winning CNN personality has said, “Alphabet Rockers is important music… it creates the  culture that is the reality of the world we want.”  

As touring and resident artists, Alphabet Rockers have been featured by The Kennedy Center, the Smithsonian Museum  of African American History and Culture, SXSW, Lollapalooza and festivals around the country, in addition to 50+ schools  each year. Their performances, media and artistry include an impactful and diverse line-up of artists, including DJ Roza  Do, choreographer Samara Atkins, youth artists Kali de Jesus, Maya Fleming and Tommy Shepherd III, and dancers  Arayah Fleming and Marj Ortiz. 

This is a free admission event but pre-registration is required online only at MauiArts.org. The MACC Box Office is not  open for window orders but is available for ticketing inquiries only Tuesday through Friday, 10am – 4pm, by phone at  808-242-SHOW (7469) or email ([email protected]).
