Bula is the man
Unique and cool style of play. His covers are amazing and was able to accommodate our recessional and processional songs which were perfectly done. I felt like he played longer than scheduled from the kindness of his own heart. so that was really cool!Sent on 11/22/2019

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!!!!"
