"I had the Hoapili Band, along with their hula dancers, perform at a luau that I hosted as a client event.  They were perfect.  The band was very easygoing, positive and extremely talented.  They also wore traditional Hawaiian outfits and looked very professional.  It was like being at a real luau in Hawaii with their level of skill and dedication to making everything flawless.  If you are looking for great entertainment for your next event, whether business or personal, stop your search here.  I would hire them again with absolute enthusiasm.  They are the perfect luau band."

"When trying to bring some Aloha to windy Chicago for my wedding in November, I was lucky enough to stumble upon Hoapili during my search for real local music.  Although I had to do all my planning from the islands, LeAnn was great to work with and so helpful in setting up their performance. She was even nice enough to invite my fiance to see them at a local performance. Her review of the band's show was stellar so we had no doubt that they would do great at our wedding. Needless to say, the boys surpassed all expectations. All my friends from Hawaii said that the band was great and they definitely added to the multi-cultural feel we were going for. Hopefully I'll see them all at the next local event for kama'aina!"

"We had Hoapili at our house for a milestone birthday party. With the first note the band played, our back yard was transformed into a Hawaiian paradise. Hoapili has a beautiful Hawaiian sound, and played so many of our favorites -- we simply enjoyed them so much it would not have mattered if they were the only ones who showed up! They are great entertainers and also were guests at our house. They were all pleasant to deal with and talk to. As we sat on our deck the next day, with the sun shining and all of our leftovers, there was a noticeable absence -- we played Hawaiian music but it just wasn't the same without Hoapili. Thanks for making our night so special".

"We had Hoapili perform for our holiday party and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a great Hawaiian sound.   They had both slower and more up beat songs and threw in a few holiday tunes as well.  Great all around!"

"We had my son's wedding reception at the Tiki Terrace.  Hiring the Hoapili band was the cherry on the top.  They provided the entertainment as the guests arrived and through dinner.  They exceeded my expectation!  Their sound was most pleasing to hear and made you feel like you were in Hawaii.  They created an inviting ambiance for all the guests. 


The manager was very friendly and accommodating to fulfill our needs.  We had a musician playing outside as the bride and groom greeted their guests with leis.  The sound of the ukulele floated through the air creating a warm Aloha!  The other two musicians entertained the guests inside.  At dinner time all three performed and had the audience participate just like we had asked.  They really did an awesome job!  I would highly recommend them. Book them if you want professionalism, beautiful music and feel the spirit of Hawaii!"

"We recently had Hoapili play at our restaurant in Des Plaines and they are just fantastic.  They have a very authentic Hawaiian sound, are great with audiences, and are very professional.  I would highly recommend Hoapili for any luau event.  We definitely will be having them back at our restaurant".
