Manoa DNA


March 13, 2012 by admin

My guys are in love with this Hawaiian band called Manoa DNA.  We saw them play last year at our hotel the Outrigger Reef in Waikiki, Oahu. The guys (especially Leelee) adore their ‘fast songs’ and the train songs that are on the Dole Pineapple train and we use it as our “Hawaii Soundtrack” as we drive around the island.

On our most recent trip, we found out they were playing at the Kani Ka Pila Grille at the hotel on our last night in Hawaii, so we grabbed a table, had a lovely dinner and the guys were thrilled to see “their band.”  (We also had the sweetest waitress and I think she was our waitress last year too!  It was the nicest way to celebrate our last night on the island.)

A bonus?  At the break we snapped this picture,

and the guys couldn’t stop talking about it all the way to the airport.  It’s nice that they remember this group and I love that we have a theme CD for the islands that brings back so many neat memories.
