    Must hire!

    We first saw Desi perform while enjoying cocktail hour at Bali Hai restaurant. We decided we couldn’t celebrate our big day without having him preform. It was a great decision and We cannot speak highly enough of Desi! He was quick to answer or questions and learned several songs for our wedding, even putting his twist on Tom Perry’s “Here Comes My Girl” for me to walk down the aisle. Our guests loved him and he created the perfect atmosphere for our cocktail hour. If we didn’t live far away we would be visiting him weekly at Bali Hai!

    Great Hawaiian Singer / Vocal Artist

    DESI was truly the hit of our event. Great music, soothing voice, fun, authentic Kamainana who knows island music and Hawaiian sound and traditions. Broad selection of island music, pop favorites and took songs by requests. DESI is the Real Deal ! Mahalo !!
