Ross is a very friendly guy and very professional. Ramona was a far drive but he made it and didn't complain. He accommodated our needs and made my parents feel special. They got to dance to their favorite song for the 50th wedding anniversary. Thank you Ross for doing such a great job.
Having a summer Luau ? We can add 1 or more hula dancers & a fire knife dancer to create a real luau experience for your party...the girls dance Hawaiian, Tahitian, Maori, & Samoan numbers and will always get your audience involved !
Ross Costa is an experienced performer who sings, plays guitar, Hawaiian Steel guitar, Yamaha Wind Controller & sequences many of the duo's 'backup band' arrangements on the computer. Cutting his teeth on surf, blues and rock in the 60's, he has transitioned thruout the various musical periods by maintaining an open attitude about performing and a willingness to play for the crowd. He lived in Hawaii for 13 years and learned many Hawaiian songs, some on the Hawaiian steel guitar. He & former partner, Ian Taylor, were the first musicians there in 1984 to use computers for live musical performances. They released two albums in Hawaii and were called the 'Computones' and were "almost semi-famous" ! yeah, really, brah !
