Auntie Geri

Auntie Geri was born and raised in La'ie, O'ahu and is 100% Hawaiian. She has an amazing voice, so well suited to the traditional Hawaiian music she loves to sing, which is why she is known as "Songbird" everywhere she performs. Her family was very musical so she grew up surrounded by traditional Hawaiian singers, musicians and hula dancers. She performed for many years with her family, the Kuhia Ohana, featuring her Mom, Auntie Liz Kuhia, and her Dad, Uncle Miki Kuhia. She lived in Texas for 12 years and learned to love and sing Country Western songs. She has had the opportunity to sing with top name recording artists such as Auntie Genoa Keawe, Al Harrington, Poncie Ponce, Uncle Joe Keawe, and even once with Elvis Presley. She toured Japan with Danny Kaleikini, Aaron Sala, and a host of other entertainers. Auntie Geri also sang for many years at the Merrie Monarch hula competition in Hilo, Hawaii, for Sissy Kaio's halau.

Auntie Carole

Auntie Carole was born and raised in Southern California and is Hawaiian at heart. She lived in Anahola, Kaua'i. Her family was very musical also, and she started her musical career playing piano at 4 years old. Her mother, who played Boogie Woogie piano with the big bands in the 1940's, so loved Hawai'i and the Hawaiian culture and shared that love of Hawai'i with her daughter. Carole danced hula as a teenager, then taught herself how to play guitar and bass, and started playing Hawaiian music with Bill Kamaka and his Hawaiian group at 20 years old. Carole put together a Hawaiian floor show and band and toured the states for a while, then with her all female touring Top 40 band, Sassafrass. She also toured the states with the well-known all-female Country band, Country Spice. Through the USO she toured Viet Nam and Thailand in 1970 with the Harrison & Tyler Comedy Show performing 35 shows for our service men and women. She has played with many nationally known hula studios, (halau), including Moku Yoshikawa, Kanani Kalama, Auntie Noelani McIntosh, Kaiolani Bosque, Portia and Pete Seanoa (Tiare Productions), and many more. She is so grateful to Auntie Geri for giving her the chance to be back in the Hawaiian community playing the music she so loves with such wonderful people.
