Performances will be at 8 p.m. April 2 at Level 4 in the Royal Hawaiian Center and 7:30 p.m. on Apirl 3 at the Kaua'i Marriott in the Kauai Ballroom.

The band features a tribute to the original Fleetwood Mac, the all-male blues band that started in 1967. Fleetwood's hand-picked blues quartet includes Rick Vito, former Fleetwood Mac vocalist and lead guitarist; Bass playerLenny Castellanos, and Mark Johnstone, who ties the band together with back-up vocals and keys.

The band released a live recording "Blue Again" in March. The album pays tribute to the Mac's early days, when it drew heavily on American blues music and produced hits such as "Albatross," "Oh Well" and "Black Magic Woman" (which was covered by Santana).

The album also includes fresh new blues tracks like "Looking for Somebody" and "Love that Burns."
