"We used Hawaiian Island Entertainment for a corporate conference staged in Hawaii for one of our biggest clients-Applebees Restaurants. We used them for an opening welcome segment for attendees at the General Session (approx.700 delegates). They were on-time, and even had some speaking parts/interaction between some of their performers and top level executives. They did everything we asked, were extremely professional and put on a very fun show--Our client was very pleased!!"

"..what a nice ending to a wonderful career as the designer of the Philadelphia Flower Show, for Ed.

"I was able to book a show through Hawaiian Island Entertainment. We had a convention for almost 1200 people and they gave the show raving reviews. Not only was Volcano and his crew easy to work with, they accommodated every aspect of our program to fit the needs of our guests. I encourage you to consider their show and some of the extras they do: Ukulele and Hawaiian singing lessons, hula lessons, etc. What a fun package you can put together!"

“….We used Hawaiian Island Entertainment for our wedding luau last summer. We had Lei-greeters, cocktail hour music, and a Luau Show. The company worked with us to put together a package that we could afford as our funds were limited.
They were wonderful! I cannot imagine what the day would have been without them. They truly make the feel of our day Hawaiian; bringing authenticity, fun, energy and excitement. And giving our guests a take away that they will never forget!
They were very professional, and everything was family appropriate-as we told them there would be children present. In fact, the children loved the show and the dancing!.
They did so much for us that we didn’t even expect-like blowing a conch shell before and after the actual ceremony and re-doing our vows in Hawaiian before our first dance. They were so flexible, planning their activities to best suit our needs and providing ideas that I never would have thought of. They were just wonderful!! They were fun and friendly and some even stayed with us for the rest of our day.
If you have any more questions, please feel free to ask, but I would highly recommend this group to anyone! Tessa

Again, many many thanks. Our guests have not stopped talking about how wonderful everything was.

“Thank you from Las Cruces. We had a great time and your performers were fantastic! We are receiving about 4-5 cards a day from our guests complimenting the great entertainment!..I would be happy to be on your reference list. I have nothing but the best to say about your organization…One of our guests was very interested in Hawaiian Island Entertainment for a physicians leadership conference. I will email him all of your information. Thank you again and what a fabulous job you all did."

“Of course you can use us as a reference. We really enjoyed the entertainment your group provided, and I appreciated how flexible they were (the performers worked around our schedule, and helped us announce extra activities/games throughout the day.) The candy lei-making was a huge success with kids and adults. Everyone loved the dancers, especially the adorable children! Mahalo!”

“Volcano and his team are great!! They put together a fantastic evening for a large group of our faculty and students last year here at Carnegie Mellon. Everything from the food to the entertainment was perfect & they were a pleasure to work with b/c of their flexibility and professionalism. I especially recommend the fire dance and the hula lessons. Volcano was a great host and he made sure everyone was having a great time. They have my highest recommendation!”

“"….I am glad that “Hawaiian Island Entertainment” has used us as a reference. I was cautious about paying for entertainment from another state. WE HAD A WONDERFUL TIME!!! The musicians and dancers met my guests at the entrance to the party. My guests all enjoyed the strolling musicians. Volcano himself is a great entertainer and very conscientious about being an ambassador the the Hawaiian culture. The show was fantastic. The dancers and musicians were fun and fascinating. The fire knife dancers were amazing. They were all very kind to the many children we had in attendance and very very careful about safety. The audience participation part of the show was so much fun that even the people who were too shy to get and dance felt that they were taking part. No one was bored….
THE FOOD WAS DELICIOUS!!! The pork came on the bone, and the caterers “pulled” it. It was succulent and differed from our local barbecue in flavor and texture. The side dishes were all also great. We did use a local caterer for his local alcoholic beverage license as local regulations are tricky. They were impressed by Hawaiian Island Entertainment’s Catering service as well.
All in all, I am very glad I was adventuresome and hired “Hawaiian Island Entertainment” I give a themed June party every year for 200 plus people and many have said that this was the best yet. I hope this answers your questions."
