Hire this band!

The Island Kings were phenomenal, I'm so glad they were available to play at our Maui wedding. Our guests all commented about how good the band was, but I didn't need to hear it from them because I could tell: the dance floor was full all night!

In the months leading up to the wedding, Tahiti helped us navigate some logistical issues with the venue. On the day of the event, the band arrived and setup and performed without needing any help from us. Everything was so seamless and professional.

Evan and the other musicians were all exceptionally good. So glad we splurged for a five-piece band — the saxophone really adds to the energy of the evening.

I had only one regret, which is that we were so busy taking pictures and mingling with guests that I didn't get to hear the cocktail hour music. Hopefully our videographer captured it — I'm sure it was amazing!

The best wedding band ever

We couldn’t have asked for a better band to play at our wedding. They kept the vibe high and the party going all night long. Our MC was also amazing.

The wedding ceremony was located under a beautiful tree with vines hanging from it, a romantic natural backdrop that was unforgettable in this tropical garden! The reception was located in the same location under a tent, decorated with tropical floral chandeliers hanging from the ceiling, just stunning! The wedding celebration started the evening with "Island Kings Band" from Oahu that sang songs that was tailored for the couple.
