Emerging from the backyards of Waipahu, Hawaii, Rebel Souljahz members Mike Maglinti, Will Sua, Bubba Hodges, and Kulani Cozo began as four friends born with a drive to perform. These young men started singing
acapella together in high school and later developing into a full band
where they quickly built a name for themselves performing at private
parties and in Honolulu's nightclub scene.
Rebel Souljahz quickly appealed to mainstream island music enthusiasts
with a full-blown all original island reggae house party extravaganza
on their debut CD, "Nothing To Hide". With standout tracks like
Darling Angel, Nothing To Hide and The One, they won Hawaii's
prestigious Na Hoku Hanohano Award for Reggae Album of the Year in
On November 2009, Rebel Souljahz released their follow-up CD, "Bring
Back The Days" in which the group chose to move forward, pushing the
boundaries of their writing and raising the bar on their singing. They
have matured, having distilled their creative talents into a finely
tuned vocal group capable of offering a strong variety of musical
styles and messages. The title track, Bring Back The Days, kicks
things off with its infectious Reggae/R&B rhythm.
Kapakahi (Kah-pah-kah-hee) came together in April of 2005 when five
musicians came together in a garage somewhere in the Mission district
of San Francisco. Bringing together five different musical and
geographical backgrounds, they eventually formed their unique sound.
Now a four-piece act, Kapakahi have come a long way from their garage
days, playing top-notch venues all over the Bay area and beyond.
In Hawaiian, Kapakahi means twisted, bent, and confused. Like the
multi-cultural mix of musicians that make up the band, Kapakahi is
about celebrating diversity in all its fun, funky glory. Their music
is a fresh and progressive mash-up of pop, reggae, latin, hip-hop and
funk and their energetic stage show grabs the attention of whatever
crowd they're in front of. www.kapakahimusic.com
Vintage Music Collective is a 12-piece multi-ethnic multi-gendered
party-focused band. VMC is based out of East Palo Alto covering all
genres with Reggae, Blues, and Funk sound. They are a great addition
to our musical lineup and we're blessed to have them take part in our
third ALOHA FRIDAY concert event.
