About KANEKOA

Sailing in on a wave of blissful sound, Maui’s Nā Hōkū Hanohano Award winning band Kanekoa has become a global phenomenon. Powered by electric ukuleles and exotic rhythms, these ukulele masters ride the wave of Hawaiian roots with jam band energy, creating a sound they call Hawaiian jam-rock. For the last 25 years audiences never fail to swoon over their soulful originals and crafty covers interpreted with pure originality. They recently graced the cover of Ukulele Magazine and referred to as “Hawaiian Trailblazers”. The Grateful Dead’s drummer Bill Kreutzmann goes so far as to call them, “the Hawaiian Grateful Dead.” David Hidalgo of Los Lobos says, “These guys scare me. They are that good.” Jon Woodhouse from the Maui News says “Kanekoa’s new album, Songs from the Great Disruption, is easily one of the best releases by a Maui band ever.” Once you hear Vince Esquires lead ukulele, it isn’t surprising to know why Vince was invited to play with the Allman Brothers band at one of their legendary Beacon Theater shows by his good friend Gregg Allman.— To hear this band, and the music that comes from their four strings…is to love this band

“Kanekoa‘s live shows are legendary throughout the islands and beyond – anyone that has had the privilege of seeing Kanekoa perform can attest to a live experience unlike any other.”
— Kala Brand Music

“I’ve been jamming with Kanekoa for years now and whenever I get over to Maui we share the stage. Hawaiian style roots music at its best.”
—G LOVE

“Wow…They are really tight, and do very interesting arrangements of our songs.”
—John Densmore, The Doors

“Songs from the Great Disruption is one of the best releases by a Maui band ever.”
— Jon Woodhouse, Maui News

“Kanekoa is one of those special bands where years and years of hard work give them the license to create seemingly effortless beauty, but behind the scenes there’s lots of sweat equity. Their peaceful and gorgeous songs are uniquely suited for these unsettling times, and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of working with them on it.”
— Steve Berlin, Los Lobos

“Kanekoa has spent decades crafting a sound that is uniquely their own, pushing the ukulele and U-Bass to new heights.”
— Kala Brand Music
