The first staging of this exotic and exciting show since 2011, the Triple Door will soon find itself filled with a colorful kaleidoscope of choreographed dances, sexy burlesque performances and impressive live music featuring what The Examiner described as "powerful, mind-blowing vocals ... the band alone is worth the price of admission."

Raiatea Mokihana Maile Helm made history in 2006 as Hawai‘i’s first solo female vocalist ever to receive a Grammy nomination for her sophomore CD Sweet and Lovely.
At 21 years old, she was one of the youngest performers to attend the 42nd Annual Grammy Awards in Los Angeles, California. It was a remarkable achievement when you consider that she comes from the tiny island of Moloka'i, Hawai'i, a mere wisp of volcanic land in the middle the Pacific Ocean.
The Arts and Leisure Desk of The New York Times (February 5, 2006) featured a list of Grammy-nominated artists who had produced stunning work but who were likely to be over looked as celebrity public relations machines pushed the glitz of industry icons. The NYT wrote of Raiatea Helm, “[She] sings in the high-voiced throwback leo ki‘eki‘e style without a hint of kitsch. Her second album Sweet and Lovely is poised and utterly elegant.”
Raiatea Helm’s recent appearance onto the national music scene with her Grammy nomination was a natural progression of her growth within the Hawaiian music community. Her debut recording, Far Away Heaven, captured the prestigious Female Vocalist of the Year and Most Promising Artist Awards from the 2003 Hawai‘i Academy of Recording Artists (HARA).
Raiatea Helm continued her award-winning tradition two years later with the release of her second CD Sweet and Lovely (Raiatea Helm Records). At the 2005 HARA Awards ceremony, she was recognized again as Female Vocalist of the Year and also received the coveted Favorite Entertainer of the Year Award. With the additional acknowledgement for technical merit in Engineering (Dave Tucciarone) and Graphic Design (Mele McPherson), she now claims six Na Hoku Hanohano Awards. Few performers of any age can match that achievement.
