What We Do

"Music is what feelings sound like"

Nothing commands the atmosphere of a room like live music. It is the soundscape that truly captures the emotion of any event and creating this soundscape is what we love doing!

When we perform at an event we aren't just playing songs, we are building memories and bringing people together by creating a warm atmosphere with the songs people love. 

Every event is unique in its composition and the skill is not just in our instruments, but in our ability to read the room, to read that togetherness and tailor our sound accordingly. 

One of our most unique features is our dynamic range of sound. Unlike most duo's we are both multi-instrumentalists, giving us the freedom to arrange any song simply, with just vocals and guitar, to emulating a full band sound with vocals, keys, guitar and percussive loops... still performed by just us two!

Our sound is always live, organic and acoustic, no matter what the occasion we are sure to provide musical entertainment to suit your event.

Choose Your Sound

Our set up can be as stripped back or as full sounding as you want. From vocals accompanied by guitar, to vocals, piano, acoustic and electric guitar.

No matter your preference our performance is always live and acoustic, and we always bring our complete set up (vocals, keys, acoustic and electric guitar, and live looping) unless otherwise specified.

You may have noticed us or other musicians mentioning this phrase 'looping', but what is it and why is it so great you wonder?

To be concise, looping is recording short audio samples on the spot during a performance (typically percussive hits on an acoustic guitar, chords or repeating vocal phrases) to add layers and dimension to the sound that could not otherwise be done without extra musicians. What makes looping so great is exactly that, it frees us up to add those nuances to our performance that make it truly wonderful, perhaps it is your favorite melody, or that stomp that makes your foot tap, looping is how we can do that for you.

Our Story

Our individual love of music brought us together in mid 2017. Our time together often consisted of road trips filled with classic sing-alongs to beautiful beach rock spots. One day while floating in clear Manly waters, amongst a large swell we decided we should start playing our music for everyone, only... what could we call ourselves? Taking inspiration from the gigantic waves rolling past us, Kahuna, was born.

Since that fine summer day, we have played at countless venues throughout Sydney and greater NSW, as well as providing entertainment for many corporate functions ,weddings and cruise ships.
