KALEO's BIO: Kaleo began performing in 1997, and in 2007 formed a Hawaiian band, "Kaleo" who has been delighting listeners with beautiful island music at their many live shows where they bring the classic Waikiki-style Hawaiian floor show to life with live hula, stellar musicianship, audience participation and, most importantly, real Aloha! Kaleo is Kama'aina (island born) and raised on Kaua'i. Kaleo is the 7th generation of King Kaumuali'i Kauai's last King and he is also a decedent of George Na'ea, father of Hawaii's Queen Emma Na'ea Rooke! Kaleo learned about island history, and the ways and spirit of ALOHA from his "tutu" ("grandmother" in Hawaiian), Kamanao Na'ea who was a guitarist, singer and narrator at the Kodak Hula Show in Waikiki for two decades, she taught Kaleo to play and sing Hawaiian music from the day he was born. Kaleo moved to Santa Barbara in 1987 where he studied with many guitar masters over the next 20 years. Kaleo is also a massage therapist.He also loves learning the ways of huna (ancient Hawaiian wisdom) from his relatives on Kauai.

KALEO'S LATEST ALBUM: On The Beach with Kaleo – Hawaiian Luau Music! "Kaleo's latest CD will transport you to the islands with his 5-Piece String Band featuring the Hawaiian Steel Guitar's magical slides and glides, the Ukulele strumming sweetly, and the upright Bass a swingin', its a pupu platter of island sing and swing and the perfect soundtrack for your next Luau. These hapa-haole classics range from touchingly sweet to gregarious and humorous and will set your toes tapping and your hips swaying as you are serenaded to tropical paradise!"

Hi, Kaleo was very easy to work with and incredibly responsive during the wedding planning phase. We never had the opportunity to meet on the actual wedding day (I was a busy bride!), but the music was amazing, beautiful and exactly what we were looking for. I received a lot of compliments from family and friends about our ceremony and cocktail hour music as well. Perfect music for the perfect day! Thanks Kaleo & Bill! Christine

Kaleo has a beautiful voice; terrific, talented muscicians on several Hawaiian instruments; and a beautiful, talented Hawaiian Hula dancer (Leona). He gave us everything we requested and was flexible with our birthday party program. He was prompt, professional, and friendly. I highly recommend Kaleo.

Kaleo, I want to thank you for the wonderful music you played at our wedding. People are still telling us how much they loved your music. It set an amazing tone for the wedding and I really can't thank you enough (and am sorry I didn't get to thank you face to face on wedding night). Please feel free to forward my email address onto anyone with questions - I'd be happy to give them any information they are seeking. I would recommed you and your band without hesitation. You were truly a pleasure to work with and are an incredible musician. Mahalo Nui Loa, JR
