Da ‘Ukulele Boyz: Live from the Slack Key Show is a blend of traditional and contemporary Hawaiian music performed on stage as co-hosts of George Kahumoku’s Grammy winning show. This long awaited album is a culmination of the 14 years that Da ‘Ukulele Boyz, Garrett Probst and Peter deAquino, have been performing together. These songs were recorded at the Slack Key Show at the Napili Kai Beach Resort on Maui, Hawaii. (www.SlackKeyShow.com)
DA 'UKULELE BOYZ represent the future as the next generation of performers upholding the traditions and culture of Hawaii musicians. First cousins Peter deAquino and Garrett Probst first began playing together as a team competing in Keoki Kahumoku's Maui Ukulele Contest held annually at the Hula Grill. Their killer duet instrumental songs, their vocals and relaxed stage banter, gave them multiple victories for several years until they took over management of the contest themselves.
Peter deAquino was born and raised on the island of Maui. He began
playing ukulele at the age of 6. Later he began learning ukulele
with Keoki Kahumoku, and Herb Ohta Jr. Other influences include all
the masters of Hawaiian Slack Key guitar; Bradda IZ, Bob Marley, and
Hawaii musicians that come before and still to come. Now this
talented young professional plays solo and in groups all over Maui
including George Kahumoku's Slack Key Show (Da Ukulele Boyz), Dukes-Kaanapali
(Three Pounds of Poi), Kimo's-Lahaina (deAquino Braddaz), The Hula
Grill (leading the band TBA). Peter is
featured on four Grammy winning compilation CDs entitled Masters of Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar, vol.1, Legends
of Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar, Treasures of Hawaiian
Slack Key Guitar, Masters of Hawaiian Slack Key
Guitar, vol.2, and Grammy nominated Spirit of Hawaiian
Slack Key Guitar.
As a child Garrett demonstrated a remarkable musical ability that
quickly developed under Keoki Kahumoku and also with Herb Ohta Jr.
Garrett was given the opportunity to travel with Uncle George
Kahumoku to Ashland, Oregon and elsewhere to demonstrate his
exceptional talent. Performing as Da Ukulele Boyz for the Slack Key
Show, he also now plays professionally, at Dukes-Kaanapali (group
Three Pounds of Poi), and with his cousin Peter D's band, TBA at the
Hula Grill. Garrett is featured on three Grammy winning compilation
CDs entitled Masters of Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar, vol.1, Legends of Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar, and Treasures of Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar.
