5PM - 8PM
My music is influenced by Hawaii because of the many diverse visitors that come to visit here, I try to play music that hopefully everyone will enjoy no matter where they are visiting from.
What is different about performing at THE MODERN HONOLULU is the atompshere. From the beautiful hotel to the view of the sunset, there are not too many venues like this. I enjoy playing at THE MODERN HONOLULU because of the people, the clients are always friendly and the staff here always go out of their way to help. This is one of my favorite places to perform.

How would you describe your group and your music?
A "feel good" Hawaiian interpretation of today's popular music. We love the music of a number of popular national acts today, i.e. Bruno Mars, Adele, Maroon 5, Pharrell, Jack Johnson, John Mayer and John Legend to name a few. We give a polished, island style interpretation of the music of performers we admire. Our mix of the consummate island instrument (the ukulele) and the warm tone of the brass (saxophone) are 2 elements that make our performance unique and a must see.
How is your music influenced by Hawaii?
Our musical inspirations span acts from Elvis Presley to Prince, The Makaha Sons of Niihau to Led Zeppelin, and Bruno Mars to Michael Jackson, but our #1 influence is birthplace of our music, Honolulu, Hawaii. From the island sunsets to the palm trees to the many world famous beaches to the beautiful people, we find influence and inspiration around every corner in our island home.
What is unique about performing at THE MODERN HONOLULU and why do you enjoy it?
THE MODERN HONOLULU is the most unique and one-of-a-kind property in Waikiki. The mix of posh Manhattan boutique hotel-style decor and the elegant island sunsets make THE MODERN HONOLULU our favorite performance venue. All of this being said, the warmth of the personnel and the quality of service is the true centerpiece at The Modern.
I would describe myself as a singer/songwriter and I would best describe my music as acoustic soul. A mix of folk, pop and soul with influences, both in Hawaii and out of Hawaii. THE MODERN HONOLULU is unlike any [place] that I've ever played at/seen before. It's the vibe that makes it unique. It's classy, contemporary and sophisticated. And the mix of people who come through are always looking for good music.
