Our New Band Name, “ManoaAND”

I’m happy to report that in order to feature Alex more in the band, we have changed our name to “ManoaAND” and placed Alex’s name at the head of the table! This is to not only satisfy his leadership in the group, but also his desire to be in the spotlight.

Last Night at Hyatt

Last night was another Wednesday at the SWIM bar in the Hyatt Regency Waikiki. A good crowd flowed in and out throughout the night, and we were blessed with (almost) no rain. I’m still always amazed at how little rain Waikiki gets compared to Manoa valley only a mile away.

Carla & Linda just took the puppies for their walk and gave them their […]

Nick's Blog 29 January 2011 | Comments

“A cool breeze enters the restaurant as we are lead to our tables. It’s a busy night at Lulus Waikiki, and a crowd has gathered from the weekend’s Pro Bowl festivities. It’s hard to make out, but there’s a hum of music above the bustle of voices. Who is it?” When ManoaDNA started playing in […]

For two weeks in October, ManoaDNA was invited back to Tikis Grill & Bar in Waikiki! Back in 2008, we played weekly at Tikis for a couple shows, but never really got a flow going at the popular Waikiki bar. This time, we are ready and willing to show Tikis exactly what ManoaDNA can do! […]
