Musical artist Fiji, born George Veikoso, is heralded for his pioneering work of developing and fostering the Pacific Island Sound. His distinct sound mixes the roots of reggae, hip-hop, R&B and jazz into a blend that sets him apart from other Polynesian artists. Winner of the Na Hoku Hanohano Award for Male Vocalist of the Year and Entertainer of the Year in 1998, Fiji has only grown to win over more fans with every album. His most recent work, “Born and Raised II -The Rebirth-,” fuses pop, soul, jazz and R&B to create an album of personal songs that reflect his approach as an artist, a musician and a man.

After arriving, Sharp began writing songs and taught himself how to play the piano, his favorite instrument. He also picked up surfing, which is now one of his favorite things to do, aside from writing and performing and playing his guitar. A few of Sharp’s most important musical influences are U2, Johnny Cash, Jack Johnson and Coldplay.

Dave Sprague has been singing and playing the guitar since he was five years old. A Florida native, Sprague’s love for southern and classic rock grew as he got older.

Now after 20 years living in Hawai‘i, Sprague’s music has expanded, along with his showmanship. He has a wide range of appeal from rock, blues, folk, punk, reggae and some Hawaiian.
