LIVE VOCALS, GUITAR & UKULELE MUSIC FOR YOUR WEDDING DAY, REHEARSAL DINNER OR PRIVATE EVENT

Desi Relator is one of Southern California’s busiest musical artists! Born and raised on Oahu, Hawaii, he is considered one of the top island-style musicians on the west coast. His performances offer something different and new while always being a bit reminiscent of old Hawaii.  Desi’s voice is smooth and rich and his sweet-sounding, melodic guitar playing will either evoke a nostalgic feeling or urge you to get up and bust a move!

With over 20 years as a professional musician, his style and presentation have evolved into a seasoned, well-organized performer, who is simply, at home, singing anywhere.  His sound has the foundations of true island beats but has flavors of latin, Motown, country and surfer vibes. His music covers favorites that span the decades- Sinatra, Johnny Cash, Bob Marley, Van Morrison, Ed Sheeran, Leon Bridges, Adelle and countless others.  This man even yodels!

His musical forte is classic and contemporary Hawaiian music. However, along with his beautiful voice, what Desi is best known for is his incredible sense of professionalism, showmanship and his wide variety of musical knowledge. He is a distinctive entertainer with a fun-loving, laid-back presence, sure to transport you to the islands!

My fiancé and I heard Desi playing live Hawaiian music at the Catamaran Resort in San Diego.
We enjoyed his laid-back manner and his fantastic voice. Right then and there we decided to
hire him for our wedding and thankfully he was available (our date was 8 months out). He
played for our ceremony, cocktail hour and then DJ’d the dance music for the reception. We
would highly recommend Desi as a reliable, knowledgeable and extremely professional
musician and DJ. He’s easy to work with and worth every dollar.

Desi, in all ways possible, made our day the most special and wonderful day ever. Although most couples will say that their day was the most special for many reasons, we are 100% certain that our day would not have been the same without Desi. From the very moment we originally heard Desi play, we knew we had to have him be a part of our Wedding Day. Desi’s musical and vocal skills were not only a fantastic addition to our Day, but his personality and professionalism are not matched by any. As a Bride, the last thing you want is to be worried about vendors Day of, and Desi gave me nothing to worry about at all. He understands the day, the moment and how important it is to get right. Desi was an absolute God Send, and we whole-heatedly recommend Desi for any and all parties for those seeking a superbly fantastic human being and musician. Thank you, Desi!
