Born and raised in Hawai'i and transplanted to the Washington, D.C., area to pursue careers, the Aloha Boys – Ramon Camarillo, Glen Hirabayashi, Isaac Ho’opi’i and Irv Queja - met in 1996 while playing music for their children and nieces at Halau O 'Aulani, a school of Hawai'ian culture, in the Washington, D.C., area. A special and exciting bond grew musically among the Aloha Boys, who love to kanikapila or play an acoustic down-home, backyard-style Hawai'ian music – a style which includes everything from the very traditional to contemporary songs and styles. They all sing lead and backing vocals. Their voices blend in a nahenahe (soft pleasant) style. Guest artist Frank Della-Penna adds the Hawai'ian steel guitar in the classic old style. The music of the Aloha Boys brings them and their audience back to a lifestyle that is unique and precious to Hawai'i.
