Noelani Love - Music from the Soul
In our consumption culture, it's easy to look at content, even artistic creations, as a commodity. Pour in the ingredients; run the machine; polish the product and another sexy item is ready for enjoyment. Great music is usually different - critically dependent on the soul of an artist rather than magical microphones, superstar musicians or wonder producers. Look behind our most inspiring songs, and you'll find a creator who is masterfully adept at channeling genuine emotions, life experiences and passion. Noelani Love has grown to become just such an artist, and Hawaii and the world are taking note.
In just over six months time, Love has released an EP filled with moving music, shared the stage with Jack Johnson (at Johnson's request), co-headlined Oahu's Wanderlust Festival, performed at Bali Spirit Fest and more. At the root of this success, propelling her rapidly rising star, is a rock solid foundation, an artist who shares her true self having found her voice through the flow of life's journey. With beautiful singing, conscious lyrics and pleasing melodies, Noelani Love is creating music that matters and spawning a career that is sure to reach and lift many worldwide.
Join us this Sunday ready to dance, smile and sing along with Noelani Love and her band as they share Love's full array of songs - from reggae rhythms to sacred chants, Hawaiian hymns to hip hop and more.
All-Star Band This Sunday: Noelani Love (ukulele, vocals) along with Braddah Wayne on guitar (formerly with Sheriff Brown), plus drums, bass and keys.

Danielle Zirk - Independent Artist
Danielle Zirk brings her vast array of life experiences to her canvases telling stories filled with deep passion, often tapping into our strongest emotions. She began her art career working as a graphic designer, while also taking a full load of college courses, competing with the U.S. Olympic junior soccer team and waiting tables. Ambition and fire have never been in short supply. Today, her paintings and murals can be seen at top resort properties around Hawaii and in homes throughout the world. With her works, Zirk is unafraid to tell any story that moves her - a true independent artist. Her achieving widespread popularity while often covering challenging subject matter is a testament to her wealth of talent.
This Sunday, Zirk sets up her easel at Hawaii Polo during our matches and paints a brand new composition in support of legendary World Surfing Champion and Oahu native, Sunny Garcia, who is currently in intensive care battling for his life. Zirk’s painting will be available for purchase with proceeds from the sale along with donations made at the event going to the GoFundMe campaign setup to help Garcia and his family.
