The Sons Of Hawaii

Profile:

The group was originally formed in 1960 under the leadership of 'ukulele virtuoso Eddie Kamae and consisted of Kamae, slack key great Gabby Pahinui, Joe Marshall on bass and David "Feet" Rogers on steel guitar. Each of these musicians came to the group with years of experience in not only Hawaiian music, but many other kinds, such as jazz and latin. Kamae had long been one of Hawaii's top 'ukulele players, Pahinui had been playing clubs in Hawaii for over 20 years and had a loyal following of devoted fans, Marshall had been playing music since high school, and Rogers, who was a merchant seaman by trade, had steel in his blood (his father was also a steel player).
2009: Group was a winner of a Nā Hōkū Hanohano Lifetime Achievement Award under the auspices of the Hawaiʻi Academy of Recording Arts. In other years at least four members in various configurations of The Sons of Hawaii won a Lifetime Achievement Award.
