In the Hawaiian language, pūpū denotes a relish, appetizer, canapé, or hors d'oeuvre. Pulutan is a Filipino term for finger foods or appetizers eaten while drinking liquor or beer. This dinner will consist of some of my favorite Filipino and Hawaiian-inspired bites. Anthony Francisco will be performing Island Reggae covers. Anthony plays solo acoustic as well as full band gigs all over Southern and Northern California. He made a name for himself in the Socal Reggae scene playing with many different Reggae acts throughout SoCal. His project as a solo artist pulls from influences such as Allen Stone, Jason Mraz, John Mayer, Justin Nozuka and Bruno Mars. Mixing an array of different genre's, Anthony's original music combines Rock and R&B with a pop-reggae element.
