A great guitarist!

We initially talked to him because we liked his playing style and arrangements from the samples on his website. Stephan is a guitarist's guitarist who really cares about the craft. This is something that shows through in the music. It turns out he's also a good person and very easy to work with.

Strongly recommend Stephan!

Stephan played at our wedding (SF City Hall) and was amazing! He sent us a list of songs to select from (a large choice of music- from the Beatles to classical). He was also kind enough to take the time to learn a song for the wedding for a small fee. We had a small wedding: my daughter and wife were the only ones to walk down the aisle. I was concerned that the timing would be off with his playing but he knew exactly what to do and I was grateful for his professionalism and his vast experience! Everyone enjoyed his playing! We strongly recommend Stephan!

Stephan Kane is by far the most talented, professional, and personable musician that I have worked with in Hawaii. He has a great website that is fantastic for my clients to sample his work and get ideas for their wedding music. He is always fast to correspond when we are working out the logistics of the wedding day. He always shows up with lots of time to set up and he always brings his own chair, amp and music stand. To top it all off, he dresses to the nines. Anyone who books Stephan for their wedding will be happy they did!
