Kekoa Osurman

Aloha ladies and gentlemen, family and friends. My name is Kekoa Osurman. Born and raised mostly in central Oʻahu. Currently living in Pacific Palisades. Music is my biggest passion. Thereʻs no better feeling then to be able to enjoy life with music and sharing my leo and talents with friends.

Iʻve been playing music for about 12 years now. I started off in high school, playing nothing but Island reggae. Never took music serious until I went to college in California. It was there that learn to appreciate my culture, language, and stories of Hawaii. My father taught me to learn Mele Hawaiʻi because this is who I am and where I come from.

Mele Hawaiʻi has been a passion since 2006. Mele Hawaiʻi is the type of music I love the most but I like to play all types of music. From Island Reggae, Country, Island Contemporary, and some Top 40.

Michael has an affinity for ‘70s era, counting musicians like Kenny Loggins, Cecilio and Kapano, Billy Joel, James Taylor, the Eagles and the Beatles among his inspirations.

“The first song I ever learned on the guitar was ‘Blackbird’ by the Beatles,” says Michael. “I was so blown away when I first heard that song that I thought,‘I don’t care how long it takes, but I have to learn that song.’ And I did! That song … and many, many more.”

Michael was born in Honolulu and then lived in Waialua for some time before living in Mililani for the past 31 years, attending Waialua Elementary, then Waialua Intermediate and High and, before going to college at the University of Hawaii.

Michael’s family is also active in the Mililani community. His daughter Lauren Cheape Matsumoto, is a former Miss Hawaii and currently a state representative (District 45, which includes Mililani and Waialua). Son Matt is a full time City and County Lifeguard on the North Shore, and former Libero for University of Hawaii Men’s Volleyball team. Wife Sharon manages Peterson’s Upland Egg Farm in Wahiawa.

Royal Hawaiian Band at Mililani

August 25, 5-5:45pm

October 27, 5-5:45pm

The Royal Hawaiian Band is the oldest and only full-time municipal band in the United States. At present a body of the City & County of Honolulu, the Royal Hawaiian Band has been entertaining Honolulu residents and visitors since its inception in 1836 by Kamehameha III. During the monarchy it was nominally a military band. It reached global prominence under the leadership of Prussian Heinrich “Henri” Berger, an officer of the imperial German army loaned to the Kingdom of Hawaiʻi in 1872. Berger composed many beloved marching tunes and other melodies, and would later be honored with the title of “Father of Hawaiian Music.” He collaborated with King Kalākaua in creating Hawaiʻi Ponoʻi, the national anthem of Hawaiʻi; it is still used today as the official state song.

During its long and distinguished history, the Royal Hawaiian band inspired the development of other brass bands in Hawaii, and possibly elsewhere in Polynesia and the Pacific. According to researcher Patrick Hennessey, the band may even be credited for originally introducing Hawaii’s world-renowned song “Aloha ‘Oe” to the United States mainland.

As of 2008, the Royal Hawaiian Band is composed of 40 full-time musicians under the baton of Bandmaster Clarke Bright, previously conducted by Michael Nakasone. The band performs every Friday at noon on the grass grounds of the historic Iolani Palace in downtown Honolulu and on Sundays at two o’clock at the Kapiolani Park Bandstand in Waikiki.
