Aloha! My name is Kanekoa and welcome to my website! If you’re wondering “Who’s this Hawaiian wedding singer guy?”, here’s my story.
I was born and raised on the island of Oahu and I love to surf and bodysurf! As a child growing up, music was everywhere! Whether it was listening to the radio, watching television, playing with my family or friends, or singing at school or church, music has always been a part of my everyday life. My great-grandmother Vera, my grandmother Noelani, my uncle Nolan, my cousin Mahi and my father Curtis are excellent Hawaiian musicians. I sing and play my ukulele to continue the legacy my family has provided to me.
I earned a bachelor and masters degree in Communication and I am currently a Speech Communication Instructor at Remington College in Honolulu. I started to play music professionally in 2008 and since then, I’ve performed at nearly 300 different occasions such as wedding, vow renewal, and civil union ceremonies, receptions, cocktail hours, sunset dinners, anniversary, funerals, birthday & private parties. As of today, I continue to provide quality live, acoustic music for almost any occasion because it is something that I love to do!
P.S. When I’m not performing or working as a teacher, I’m usually having fun in or around the ocean. Feel free to browse the pictures of me below. Enjoy!
