Who is "The Hawaiian Wedding Singer"?
Aloha! My name is Kanekoa and welcome to my website! If you’re wondering to yourself “Who’s this Hawaiian wedding singer guy?”, please take a minute or two and continue reading on below.
I was born and raised on the island of Oahu and throughout my life, music was everywhere! Whether it was listening to the radio, watching television, spending time with family, friends, at school or at church, music has always been a part of my everyday life. My late great-grandmother Vera, grandmother Noelani, uncle Nolan, cousin Mahi and father Curtis are excellent Hawaiian musicians. I sing and play my ukulele to continue the legacy my family has provided to me.
I began performing Hawaiian music professionally in 2008 and since then, I’ve performed for over 400 different occasions such as wedding, vow renewal, and civil union ceremonies, receptions, cocktail hours, luncheons, sunset dinners, anniversaries, proposals, funerals, birthdays & private parties. As of today, I continue to provide quality live, acoustic music at any time for any occasion because it's something I love to do.
After graduating from high school, I earned a bachelors and masters degree in Communication here in Hawaii and I am currently a doctoral student at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. In 2014, I married the love of my life and in 2015, we became parents to our handsome son named Daniel. We live in the beautiful valley of Manoa in Honolulu and enjoy listening to the rain and feeling the cool mountain breeze on a daily basis.
As you can tell from the pictures above, I enjoy spending time with my family, surfing, bodysurfing, fishing and diving. If you have any questions or think I may be of service to you in any way possible, feel free to go to my contact page and send me a message. Hope to hear from you soon and have a wonderful day!
