The new modern Hawaiian sound burst upon the Waikiki scene in the early 1960s.
A reflection of the popularity of the Beatles, younger groups began performing in many of the taverns, lounges, and restaurants in Waikiki.
There seemed to be a watering hole in every Hotel lobby, and around every corner.
One could experience a different entertainer every evening.
Budding entertainers like Kui & Nani Lee, Don Ho, Zulu, Pat & his Paddlers, and Billy K & the Seamen all made their first recordings.
