Hawaiian Legacy

The Lochtefeld Agency and Hawaiian Music
Venues where I have presented Slack Key Guitar

For over 15 years, I enjoyed being part of bringing Hawaiian music to American mainstream audiences. My first job was radio tracking for Dancing Cat Records’ original three Hawaiian CD release in1995. Dancing Cat would go on to make over 35 high quality “Ki-Ho-Alu” CDs. I would go on to book hundreds of slack key events throughout the mainland and internationally. It was a tremendous honor to work with some of the most gifted artists on earth, and to help them breathe meaning into their cultures through the sharing and passing on of their traditions.

This page is dedicated to the artists who have meant so much to me, as well as all the venues and individual supporters who helped and continue to share the wonderful art and culture of Hawaii.
