Some of the most successful music to come out of Hawaii in recent times has been that of Hawaiian Style Band, founded by Wade Cambern and Bryan Kessler. With mega hits such as “Live A Little (Hawaiian Style)”, “Love & Honesty” and “Let’s Talk Story”, Hawaiian Style Band shaped the music landscape of Hawaii.
Hawaiian Style Band was founded with the idea that over the years it would evolve with different members contributing to the success of the band as they develop their individual artistry--among them Israel Kamakawiwo‘ole, Fiji, and Robi Kahakalau. This project marks the beginning of the band’s latest evolution with co-producer and drummer Garin Poliahu and vocalist Tani Lynn joining original member Wade Cambern.

The CD is titled 'Io, short for 'Iolani, the name of the Hawaiian hawk. I use the hawk as a metaphor for my Grandmother who passed away recently. My Grandfather passed away when my Father was but 10 years old. Thus, my Grandmother had to raise 9 children by herself. She must've done a great job, for in 1964 she was honored as "Mother of the Year". Like the hawk, I have an imagery of my Grandmother flying up high, looking down and protecting those she love. This CD is dedicated to my mentor, my teacher, my Grandma."Learn More

"On the Summit...is truly about the journey to the summit and what is learned along the way in reaching the peak. On The Summit is reflective of our lives as they are entwined with the many moments with our students through our hula school, Halau I Ka Wekiu...The halau on the summit."Learn More
Following the selection as Group of the Year at the 2011 Na Hoku Hanohano Awards, the KUmZ duo continues to strive forward in perpetuating the Hawaiian culture through music and dance with their fourth release.
The phrase "You Should Know By Now" comes from the song "Do I Love You?" but it first became familiar to them as their Kumu Robert Cazimero would always say it and write it in notes and cards. The phrase has since stuck with KUmZ as a beautiful way to say I love you to someone and to express that sentiment of love.
The CD is filled with new compositions that tell stories of their haumana, places they have visited, and experiences they have shared together. The CD also features mele that were written by the haumana of Halau I Ka Wekiu.Learn More
