Composer, innovator, traditional Hawaiian man. Brother Noland has deeply influenced contemporary Hawaiian music, is considered the "Father of Jawaiian Music" yet he remains in touch with traditional Hawaiian music and cultural roots. Fluid in both Slack Key and standard guitar tunings, Brother Noland goes wherever the music carries him.
His newest album, Hawaiian Man, is a return to Noland’s traditional Hawaiian roots. “As far back as I can remember,” Noland says, “I was always surrounded by the beautiful sounds of Hawaiian Music. You can play the songs over and over and each time it’s refreshing and new.” Brother Noland is popular for his unique interpretations (or “Nolandization”) of traditional songs.

Brother Noland is most famous for his song “Coconut Girl” which launched the Jawaiian contemporary style music. He has won numerous Hoku Awards including Best Reggae Album and his music is featured in several movies including “Pineapple Express” and “Snakes in the Plane”. He is regularly featured and the Slack Key Guitar festivals around the islands.

Noland was born and raised in Kalihi-Palama, one of Hawaii’s economically poorest neighborhoods. He found his way out through his art and culture and now helps at risk youth define their choices and make a quality connection to the community. His music always carries a message of positive reflection, even though they are rooted in the reality we live in today. His work with at-risk kids has given him far more than he ever expected or could have imagined. The one on one connection that exists when he is able to teach them guitar, ukulele and composition is overwhelmingly positive. He’s set up arts programs in the public parks where they can discover their individual talents and has shown many that there is a good life; one very different than the one they believed they were destined to live.

Brother Noland also is a steward of the land. Hawaii is deep within Noland’s soul and so he cares for acreage on Molokai, preserving Hawaiian customs, indigenous plants and animal species. This work allows Noland to maintain his connection with being Hawaiian and this connection feeds and inspires his music. Brother Noland lives aloha and you can hear it in every note he plays.

Peter was born and raised on the island of Maui. He began playing ukulele at the age of 6. Later he studied ukulele with Keoki Kahumoku and Herb Ohta Jr. Other important influences include all the masters of Hawaiian Slack Key guitar with whom he has played regularly for the last 8 years, including Ledward Kaapana and others, also Bradda IZ & Bob Marley. Peter now plays professionally around Maui both solo and in groups: Dukes-Kaanapali (Three Pounds of Poi), Kimo's-Lahaina (deAquino Braddaz), The Hula Grill (leading the band TBA), and the Hard Rock Café (Sounds of Addiction). Peter is featured on all four of the Slack Key Show’s Grammy winning compilation CDs: Masters of Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar, vol.1, Legends of Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar, Treasures of Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar, Masters of Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar, vol.2, and also on the Grammy nominated Spirit of Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar. Peter is featured in a new DVD: The Best of the Slack Key Show, Vol. 1

Born and raised on Maui, Sterling showed an early talent for the guitar. At Lahainluna High School, Sterling would practice in between classes and to jam with Uncle George Kahumoku (who was the ceramics teacher) at lunch time. After attending Uncle George's Annual Summer Workshop in Napili and studying with the slack key masters, Sterling took a particular interest in Slack Key C Tuning. Sterling is the Slack Key Show sound engineer as well as a performer, and also works as a light & sound technician at the Ulalena show in Lahaina. Sterling is featured on the Slack Key Show’s Grammy award winning CDs, Treasures of Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar, Masters of Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar, vol.2, and Grammy nominated Spirit of Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar. Sterling is featured in a new DVD: The Best of the Slack Key Show, Vol. 1.

Telling the story with graceful movement and hula hands, Wainani has loved dancing all her life. Born in Honolulu, she relocated and danced for many years on the Big Island where she joined the hula school, Halau Na Lei O Ka Holoku, led by Kumu Hula Nani Lim Yap and Leialoha Amina.

Wainani traveled nationally and internationally with Lim’s Halau sharing hula with the world while developing her considerable talent in dance, chanting, and Hawaiian culture.

Wainani now lives on Maui and, in addition to regularly dancing for Slack Key Master, Ledward Kaapana, she has danced for many years at the Royal Lahaina Resort as a soloist and as an Oli Mea (chanter) for Maui Nei Cultural Walking Tour. She was one of the principal dancer for George Kahumoku’s Hawaiian Country Music Show in Branson, Missouri in 2012 and has now become a regular dancer at George Kahumoku Jr’s Slack Key Show.
