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!"

Kaleo was absolutely amazing. They created the perfect Hawaiian atmosphere that we were looking for. Everyone was complementing us on the music throughout the night. We would definitely recommend Kaleo for future events.

Kaleo and the band were superb. The music was so beautiful and fit the outdoor garden venue perfectly. We had special requests and they were accommodated beautifully. The band was so good the hotel asked them to come back for the hotel's event on Mother's Day. Our guests loved the music and the spirit of Aloha truly set the tone for our wedding. Thank you Kaleo for making our wedding even more special with your lovely Hawaiian music.

I love Kaleo. We hired Kaleo for our wedding back in May 2010. He was absolutely a pleasure to work with. I found him to be very professional and responsive to my requests. He is extremely accommodating. We had the band move from the outdoor stage (that was set up during the cocktail hour) and into the banquet room stage. They had no problem with this even though it was so much more work for them. Regarding his music, he and his band are very, very talented and skilled. Our wedding was a hybrid Vietnamese/American banquet reception. EVERYONE loved the music, including old school Vietnamese old ladies!

Kaleo played for our daughter's wedding both at St. Anthony's Catholic Church and at the garden reception on June 5, 2010. We can't possibly put into words how grateful we are to Kaleo for making our event so special with his beautiful music of Kauai. His rendition of The Hawaiian Wedding Song and Over the Rainbow during Mass brought tears to many eyes. We loved it so much we are planning on asking Kaleo to play for our 60th wedding anniversary in 2012. I know that anyone considering hiring Kaleo for any kind of event will be more than happy with his beautiful performance. Mahalo to Kaleo! Dorothy Picanco, Manteca, California.

Wonderful performance, all of our guests raved on the live music and appreciated the professionalism. Amanda my mom loved Kaleo, she mentioned he was very polite, warm and caring. With the way our wedding was planned, it felt as if we were in Hawaii.

Kaleo was accomodating and very easy going. The communication with him prior to the event was exceptional and professional, yet very personable. His musical talent is SUPERB! Our event was a small Valentine Banquet at First Presbyterian Church in Hanford, CA. Kaleo's presentation was perfect for all age groups that attended. If you are looking for entertainment with a relaxing and enjoyable setting for a special event, you will not go wrong with hiring Kaleo. Blessings, Kaleo and Cindy. Joanne Groves, Hanford, CA
