Kai was amazing and so sweet! I'm so lucky to have had him play at my wedding. He played ceremony, cocktail hour and then switched to ukulele for first dance for "somewhere over the rainbow" my friends and family went crazy over him. I saw posts everywhere of my family and friends posting about him. He's insanely talented and a genuine person. He is perfect for weddings and any occasion! I couldn't ask for anyone better. Thank you for being a part of my wedding! It would t have been the same without you! I highly recommend Kai. He has a good heart and amazing voice and talent! I also saw he came really early to setup ! He is professional and a treasure!
Fast forward to 2009 when Kai was one of 36 Semi-Finalists on Season 8 of American Idol. There he gained massive exposure and breathed new life into his writing and performing, while gaining the confidence he so easily exudes now. Kai and his brother, after their Father's sudden passing recorded a Hawaiian-soul album as a tribute, which was released in 2011 by famed Hawaiian entertainer Willie K.
Also, Kai was featured on NBC's "The Winner Is", in Summer 201 3 with his brother, where they won $50,000 in a singing competition gameshow, giving Kai yet another boost of exposure and confidence.
Kai performs solo with the help of a "loop pedal" which plays back anything recorded live to "make a band" on the spot.
His musical styles include: soul, rock, folk, doowop, hip-hop, Hawaiian, and more!
Kai is easy to work with and remains professional in any setting. Requests are always welcome and Kai creates an easy going, conversational and fun atmosphere. Kai is currently working on new music for a solo album as well as music placement for T.V. and Film.
