We were planning to have our wedding earlier this year, but with covid, we had to cancel the wedding all together. All the other vendors were very unresponsive and uncooperative. However, Bula was very responsive and we were able to get our initial deposit back. He even offered to send us a free cd of his music. I think this speaks volume of his character. I know if we ever resume our plans to have a 2nd wedding in Hawaii, I'll definitely be calling Bula for our music.Sent on 01/11/2021

Don’t look any further... absolute perfection!!
Bula was so good and extremely responsive. Planning a wedding during COVID with so many uncertainties, he was flexible given the circumstances. We loved him so much we asked him to stay for the whole wedding. Bula has a huge list of songs for everyone and will tailor to whatever you want!!Sent on 12/16/2020
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!!!!"
