Opening act for Tom Jones' New Year's spectacular at the Sheraton Waikiki Hotel.


Three generations of entertainers have entertained and played for Heads of States -- from the present and the past Governors of the State of Hawaii, Mayors of the City and County of Honolulu, and visiting dignitaries and stars. Just to name a few -- Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis, Jr., Liza Minnelli, Michael Jackson and the "Jackson Five," Steve Lawrence, Edie Gorme, Glen Campbell, as well as stars from the East, including Hawaii sumo sons, Takamiyama (Jesse Kuhaulua), Akebono (Chad Rowen), and Konishiki (Saleva'a Atisanoe) on their return visits to Hawaii.

Starting as a Waikiki lounge act back in the early 60's, musician, founder and now, Entertainment Director, Larry Fukunaga, has brought his expertise and knowledge to the forefront. Being years ahead of his time, he now brings you an entertainment package, which includes the band, dancers, venue and catering. The Music Foundation of Hawaii honored Larry with a "Lifetime Achievement Award" at the 11th Annual Hawaii Music Awards in March 2008 -- for more than 40 years of entertaining Hawaii, and for being a pioneer in his field through generations of musicians, audiences and clientele.
