Primary Instrument: Guitar

Born: January 1, 1908

Hawaiian and jazz entertainer/storyteller Bill “Tappy” Tapia celebrates his 100th birthday and nine decades in music with various friends and entertainers. A performer since World War I, Bill has embarked on perhaps the unlikeliest comeback ever over the past few years. His first two CDs have scored top 10 on the CMJ jazz charts and he continues to perform sellout shows all over the West Coast and Hawai'i. Recently, he was inducted into the Ukulele Hall of Fame and has won the hearts of all ages.
”As delightful as it is surprising...Tapia's 86+ year career includes jams with long-gone pioneers of American music, including Louis Armstrong, Billie Holiday and Fats Waller. ...Tapia takes his rightful place alongside these greats.” - Billboard Magazine
