“Up Close and Personal” launches the audience back to a time when the artists performed their craft in an intimate setting. No loud drums pounding. No amplifiers squealing. Just their beautiful voices, a sprinkling of piano, and in this case, the lyrical sounds of acoustic guitar and ukulele. The ladies of Native Pearls are well known in the Hawaiian music industry both coming from musical pedigree. Kanoe Cazimero is the lovely hula dancer sister seen often with The Brothers Cazimero. Mihana is the daughter of the celebrated musician Irmgard Aluli, and quite world renown in her own time. Together they are truly unforgettable.

This dynamic duo has been performing together for well over 20 years. Both Mihana and Kanoe are native to Hawai`i and for many, are considered musical “gems,” thus the name "Native Pearls."

Mihana comes from the “Wahine trio” or troubadour legacy; the style being acoustic and roving table to table. The phrase was coined for family groups like Puamana, led by Mihana’s mother Irmgard Farden Aluli; beloved musician and composer.

Kanoe comes from a musical legacy that stems through the family and most predominantly as dancer with brothers Robert & Roland – The Brothers Cazimero who are the benchmark of Traditional and Contemporary Hawaiian Music.

Together Mihana and Kanoe on guitar and ukulele offer a personal, home-spun easiness while singing and dancing their way through or at groups of tables. Their repertoire includes Traditional & Contemporary Hawaiian, Hapa-haole tunes, as well as songs written and recorded on Mihana’s own albums.

Whether on stage or in an intimate group setting, the Native Pearls spin their musical magic by taking requests and performing songs that endear customers` memories to these Hawaiian Islands.

Shakka is a Santana tribute band from Honolulu Hawaii recreating the sound and looks of Carlos Santana and his band taking everyone on a musical journey back to 1969 Woodstock where it all started into the current "Supernatural" album.

Rarely does a band combine explosive guitars with an intense longing for meaning. "We have the best jobs in the world because we play music for a living and love doing it, but we didn't get into this to try and sell something. For us, it's about communicating and connecting with people on a different level."

"We pride ourselves in taking some things you might think you know, and then twisting them around. We're not trying to necessarily be different--it's just the way we are. That keeps it interesting for us, and interesting for the fans as well." "That's how excited we were. I think a lot of that energy found its way into the music, which was our intent from the very beginning. We want each song to carry the listener on a journey, and we want to make sure the ride is as interesting as possible. The best way I can describe it is to say that this band is a celebration of being alive."
