2022 will officially mark 25 years of ukulele innovators, Kanekoa, the band of limitless  possibilities. Kanekoa is one of Hawaii’s premier live music experiences, consistently selling out shows wherever they perform. Playing what is described as “ukulele-powered Hawaiian jam-rock,” their sound is based on the untapped potential of the electrified Hawaiian ukulele. Guided by the culture and land of Hawai‘i, Kanekoa is right at home playing any type of genre from traditional Hawaiian to 80’s Pop to Jamband Blues, uniquely offering their signature electric ukulele sound to everything they play. Wherever this band plays people are mesmerized, they have caught the ear of some of the biggest names in music including Mick Fleetwood, Los Lobos, and Bill Kreutzman from the Grateful Dead who even called Kanekoa, “The Hawaiian Grateful Dead”. With every show they play, Kanekoa continues to gain new loyal fans. — To hear this band, and the music that comes from their four strings…is to love this band.

“The Hawaiian Grateful Dead”

— Bill Kreutzman, The Grateful Dead

“These guys scare me, they are that good”

—David Hidalgo, Los Lobos

“The band is amazing…stepping out of the traditional ukulele approach”

—Mick Fleetwood, Fleetwood Mac

“I’ve been jamming with Kanekoa for years now and whenever I get over to Maui we share the stage. It’s great to hear this new batch of original compositions from the Boys  These homegrown jams are Hawaiian style roots music at its best.”

—G LOVE

“Kanekoa is one of those special bands where years and years of hard work give them the license to create seemingly effortless beauty, but behind the scenes there’s lots of sweat equity. Their peaceful and gorgeous  songs are uniquely suited for these unsettling times, and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of working with them on it.”

— Steve Berlin, Los Lobos

“Kanekoa takes the ukulele and uke-related music to another place…Vince has a much different and funkier pocket than any other uke player I’ve heard or have played with.”

— James “Hutch” Hutchinson, Bass Player for Bonnie Raitt’s band
