Blue Note Hawaii Presents ManoaDNA's Christmas Concert

2 sets: 6:30PM (Doors 5:00PM) & 9:00PM (Doors 8:30PM)

Manoa DNA

If DNA conjures up visions of sterile science labs for you, then MānoaDNA is about to change your world. Weaving a patchwork of styles and genres into one solid sound, this multi-generational group quickly became a fixture in the music scene. They have taken the science out of DNA and replaced it with harmonies that will touch your soul.

“DNA” stands for Dad, Nick and Alx- and yes, it is all in the genes. For 11 years, MānoaDNA has been captivating audiences across the country and the Pacific. This talented family band brings 3-part harmony, upbeat sounds, and infectious enthusiasm to every stage. 

Separately they are good, together they are great.

“Dad” (Lloyd), a professional musician for over 35 years, quickly recognized the potential for perfect harmony when he saw that his sons had inherited his passion for music. He encouraged and coached them as they strived to take their sound to the next level. Lloyd often draws from personal history and friendships as he showcases the musical talents of MānoaDNA.

After graduating from the college, where he was a soloist with the University Singers, Nick returned home and joined forces with younger brother Alx. Their idea, to form a band of brothers and entertain friends and family at casual gatherings and parties, quickly began to gather steam. Their dad added a third dimension and they realized they had a sound worth perusing.

Alx, meanwhile, with one year of college on the mainland under his belt, had returned home determined to pursue his music in Hawai’i. His innate abilities and perseverance have been the catalyst to propel MānoaDNA. Armed with original compositions and a vision, he took destiny by the reigns. Alx currently lives in LA where he is learning from some of the world’s best performers and songwriters.

The have gathered a fan base spanning two continents, from one side of the Pacific to the other. The sound of MānoaDNA transcends generations, delighting audiences with their wide repertoire of music. Whether you enjoy The Eagles, James Taylor, Crosby Stills, the Beach Boys, Latino or Hawaiian music, MānoaDNA has the sounds you’ll enjoy. And, to quote James Ingram, “it doesn’t hurt that they’re easy on the eyes.”
