“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 Cheape

Saturday:
December 8 • 6 – 8pm

Longtime Mililani resident Michael Cheape has a musical background of over 40 years. He entertains at various events throughout the month and can most recently be seen entertaining at the Four Seasons, and at weddings at Sunset Ranch. 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.”

With Hawaii in his heart, art on his skin, a guitar in hand and a vocal expression all his own, Shawn Garnett’s is pure Island Soul: part Reggae, part Urban Folk, and a little Jam wrapped in the melodies of Pop.

Even though this is just the beginning of his solo career, music has been embedded in Shawn’s world for years: from singing covers at his uncle’s back yard barbeques to playing guitar in a worship band at an Asian church to fronting the Las Vegas Reggae-Rock band One Pin Short.

Those musical experiences combined with his everyman life experiences have molded his voice and his perspective. He knows what it’s like to work as a cook in a restaurant and security guard at a hotel. He knows what it’s like to find the love of your life and lose a loved one. He understands what it means to have a broken down car with no money in your pocket. He knows because he’s lived it all.

Not only music, but Shawn has ventured in Film and TV. He is currently a cast member of the CBS hit show, Hawaii Five-0. He plays Flippa, cousin to the show’s regular, Kamekona. Small parts here and there but nonetheless, taking any opportunity that opens for him, humbly and respectively.

But Shawn’s songs are coming…delivered from that Island Soul. They’ll be about friends and family and having a beer or two…and remembering life ain’t that bad even if all you got are just those simple things. Aloha.
