Bula is an amazing & talented musician! My husband and I definitely wanted live music for our wedding. Since we were planning a destination wedding it was important for us to do our research. We listened to him on YouTube and immediately knew we had to have him! Fast forward to our wedding day – right before walking down the aisle, I heard him start singing our chosen song “Can’t help falling in love” by Elvis Presley, and I immediately felt a flurry of emotions. His voice and instrumental playing perfected the ambiance, and made my walk down the aisle forever a beautiful moment. All the songs we chose for him to perform were amazing, and we could not have hoped for a better musician that met all our expectations. He continued to play during our cocktail hour, our guests enjoyed him greatly, and even after our big day he is still talked about. Without a doubt we recommend Bula – thank you so much for adding your talent to our special day!

Sounds of Everlasting Memories
Bula was amazing at our wedding this past week! Added a piece of smooth and soulful sound to our waterfront wedding that everyone enjoyed! He even learned a song from scratch that we requested and absolutely nailed it! Just seeing my wife walk down the aisle as our favorite song came on made it a moment I will never forget!Sent on 05/12/2019

He learned our processional song "Not so bad at all" by Wax, and killed it!🔥🔥🔥
I requested too many songs and asked him to just go with the flow. When I looked around people were singing along, swaying side to side, and most importantly having a good time! If you want to have great music on your perfect day, choose Bula!
A great company to work with. We highly recommend. Thank you Solace Weddings LLC
We work with dozens of musicians on the Big Island. Few of them match the pure talent and professionalism of Bula Akamu. We are honored to book him for our most valued clients. Bula brings a wonderful burst of aloha to events big and small. He is the perfect choice for your wedding ceremony, cocktail hour and reception.
Bula has performed acoustic guitar and sung at many weddings I that have photographed. He is a friendly and accommodating guy with an outstanding talent and wonderful "presence". He is very versatile - from authentic "Island" music to soulful mainstream music. He is VERY GOOD!!! I have also noticed that he always arrives early . . . and ready to perform. I cannot say enough about Bulai!!!!"
