Review by Renee C.

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on August 6, 2022From Stockton, CA

Pua was amazing! Her style and charm with the crowd was fantastic! Her dancing was excellent and she was great with the crowd to teach the dancing! I loved her dedication of dances! I would love her to come again to an event

Hula Manu O'o:

What a wonderful party! Thank you, Renee for being the perfect host and inviting us to be part of your grandmother's 100th birthday celebration. She is simply adorable and it was beautiful to see everyone gathered together with such an outpouring of love. I couldn't have asked for a better venue (loved the stage) or audience-- they definitely win Best Hukilau Dancers of 2022...hands down??

Private PartyReviewed on May 20, 2022From Berkeley, CA

They were great, arrived early to set up, were easy to work with and flexible. The people at my party really enjoyed the show and at one point they had everyone up doing the hula. It was really fun!

Hula Manu O'o:

Mahalo for booking Hula Manu O'o, Linda. Sandy and I thoroughly enjoyed your warm hospitality and the time spent engaging with your friendly guests. We especially loved having such a fun group dance with everyone! An all-around good time for sure! Thank you again for inviting us as your entertainers

Maggie and Sandy were wonderful! They were the highlight of the evening and just exactly what I was hoping for, lovely Hawaiian ballads and well known tunes. Thank you for a memorable evening.

Hula Manu O'o:

Mahalo, Patricia for inviting Hula Manu O'o to entertain at your husband's birthday celebration. It was an absolutely wonderful event and we're thrilled we could help make his special day a memorable one! On behalf of Sandy, Maggie and all of us here, we wish your husband many happy returns of the day and thank you again for choosing Hula Manu O'o.

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on November 12, 2021From Oakland, CA

They were amazing it really elevated the event to another level. We were big on tradition short on time and they accommodated us beyond a professional level we connected so much personally and I would recommend them anyone who is looking for that special elegant touch

Hula Manu O'o:

It was such a pleasure. (and honor) to present our Ku'uipo Wedding Tribute, Demi. Of course, we always want to make every client's dream come true but you and your family's warmth and the glowing smiles of the bride and groom made this Tribute extra special for me and one that I'll always remember! Mahalo for inviting us as your entertainers for such a beautiful occasion....the first of many more to come, I hope!

Hula Manu O'o:

Mahalo Mark for booking us. We we're honored to be part of the festivities and are so glad you and your wonderful group of friends enjoyed Pua's offering. All of us hope you will think of Hula Manu O'o again the next time you're planning an Island-themed event. Aloha!

Luau PartyReviewed on August 6, 2021From Pinole, CA

Oh my goodness - Lisa and Sandy were AMAZING! What a wonderful treat for our senior residents to have them perform at lunch. They were easy to work with, very professional, and so nice. We can't wait to host another luau just to have them back! As someone who has planned parties for events for the past 20+ years, I'm so happy to have found this gem!

Hula Manu O'o:

A big mahalo to Kerri and all our new friends at Bay Park. Sandy and I had the most wonderful time and can't wait for the next opportunity to enjoy good Island fun with you again.

Retirement PartyReviewed on July 11, 2021From San Francisco, CA

We hired this group to perform at my mother’s retirement party. They were on time, ready to go, and very professional. Their performance added a lot to the party, the music and the dancing created such a great atmosphere. I would highly recommend this group. Very upfront, fair and will do business with them again in the future.

Hula Manu O'o:

Mahalo Juan for booking us for your mother's surprise retirement party! We appreciate your business, the planning and effort that went into the celebration and warm hospitality of you and your wonderful family. Congrats to Jennifer again and thank you for inviting us to be part of the celebration.

Corporate FunctionReviewed on February 5, 2019From San Francisco, CA

Lisa was wonderful to work and coordinate with and was so helpful even when we dealt with a ridiculous concern on the part of some of our team. The performance was such a hit, they even went over by an hour! If we ever have to have a similar event, we will definitely be booking with Hula Manu O'o again.

Memorial ServiceReviewed on April 8, 2018From Santa Clara, CA

Hula Manu O'o performed at a Celebration of Life service for my husband. Our hula dancer, Pua, performed at the beginning and end of the program. Her interpretations of the songs were breathtaking and moved many to tears. The duo accompanying her were very talented. They performed for an hour during the reception and featured a lively mix of Hawaiian standards. These performers present a very classy show,. We wanted a "Halekulani" vibe and that's precisely what we received. I also appreciated the booking process. Lisa was very prompt in answering all of my questions and helped me think through the performance part of the program.

Hula Manu O'o:

We are so deeply honored to have been a part of the celebration of Peter's life and glad that our humble offering was a worthy tribute to how deeply he touched the lives of so many.

EventReviewed on August 22, 2015From Daly City, CA

Outstanding performance! We are a Memory Care Facility with Residents with different stages of Dementia and Alzheimer's Disease. Lisa connected with all of our residents with her personalized touch, enthusiasm and grace. We were in awe of her talent and show-womanship. Our Hawaiian Luau Party was a great success with our residents, families and our staff. Thank you Lisa. Sharon G.

Hula Manu O'o:

Mahalo, Sharon for your kind review! I'm so glad the time we spent together was as memorable for you all as it was for me. I can't wait to see everyone again the next time your community hosts another Island-style special event.

If you want the best for your next event Hula Manu O'o featuring Pua are the performers that I highly recommend. We had a luau and they added a lot of class to our event. Beautiful music with a talented singer and dancers. Our residents were thrilled!

Private PartyReviewed on July 27, 2014From Novato, CA

Lisa was hired 4 my Mother's memorial. My mother was a hula dancer 2. Lisa was absolutely beautiful, mesmerizing, professional, warm, graceful & elegant. Her performance was one of the most emotional amazing experiences I have ever encountered.When she was dancing it was like she was dancing with my Mother's spirit The Aloha Spirit.It was hair raising when the wind chimes started playing like an instrument the whole time she danced. Everyone was touched & moved beyond words. My family, friends & I will never 4get that tribute of love 2 my mom It was just the way I wanted. I know God blessed us by sending Lisa 2 dance & give my mom a heart felt Hawaiian Aloha. Thank u

Hula Manu O'o:

I've been a dancer for many years, but our Farewell Tribute to Gwendolyn (Debra's mother) stands alone as the most memorable of all. Not just because of Debra and her family's gracious warmth in their time of loss, but also because this Tribute demonstrated the power of dance as a healing force in our lives. Mahalo to Debra for the honor... Me ke aloha pumehana, Pua

Birthday Party (Kids)Reviewed on July 13, 2014From Lafayette, CA

Pua was amazing. The girls listened to her every word and followed her directions carefully. She taught them about Hawaiian culture, lei making, and hula dancing. They had a great time and it was a perfect birthday party!
