Native to Southern California, Kai has been singing and performing since the age of 6, then playing guitar and singing with his brother since he was 12 years old. The youngest son of a Hawaiian music entertainer Father, and a choir director Mother, Kai was destined to play and compose music from an early age.
Fast forward to 2009 when Kai was one of 36 Semi-Finalists on Season 8 of American Idol. There he gained massive exposure and breathed new life into his writing and performing, while gaining the confidence he so easily exudes now. Kai and his brother, after their Father's sudden passing recorded a Hawaiian-soul album as a tribute, which released in 2011 by famed Hawaiian entertainer Willie K.
Kai was featured on NBC's "The Winner Is", in summer 2013 with his brother, where they won $50,000 in a singing competition gameshow, giving Kai yet another boost of exposure and confidence.
Kai performs solo with the help of a "loop pedal" which plays back anything recorded live to "make a band" on the spot. His musical styles include soul, rock, folk, doo-wop, hip-hop, Hawaiian, and more!
Kai is easy to work with and remains professional in any setting. Requests are always welcome and Kai creates an easy going, conversational and fun atmosphere. Kai is currently working on new music for a solo album as well as music placement for T.V. and Film.

Rooted in Vancouver, Canada then transplanted to Seal Beach CA, Michael Physick has been entertaining with his acoustic guitar in venues ranging from small intimate campfires to large outdoor stages for over 20 years in both Canada and the US. Michael has an extensive song list that spans 6 decades of top 40 music and all genres. As a solo performer Michael can play with a mellow beach vibe and be in the background or when the mood is right, turn things up by looping live beats on his guitar and layering bass, rhythm and vocal parts to get people up on their feet dancing.
Currently, Michael enjoys playing weekly gigs in Southern California's beach communities. He plays as a solo artist or duo with his talented wife Trina on percussion. You can catch him in regular rotation here at Cruise Newport Beach or at some of your favorite restaurants, bars and coffee houses.
Michael's musical influences include: Jack Johnson, Eric Clapton, Ed Sheeran, Ben Harper, Foo Fighters, CCR, The Police, U2, Lenny Kravitz and James Taylor. Have a look at Michael's song list and you will quickly see his eclectic taste in music. Sit back, relax and enjoy an ever-growing mixture of acoustic renditions from the 60s to current pop/rock music.

Born into a musical family - his father is the revered Samoan folk/pop artist Jerome Grey and brother Taumata is a member of the group Common Kings - Loa Greyson, under the name Tini Grey, began his music career in Hawaii with the popular Polynesian R&B vocal group "Reign," with whom he released one album in 2001.
In 2007, having since moved to California with wife Angela Perez Baraquio (Miss America 2001), Loa was motivated to continue his father's legacy following the elder Grey's stroke during a stage performance. He began anew, embarking on a solo music career that was influenced not only by his father, but also by a diverse list of R & B, Motown, Soul, Folk, Hawaiian, and Pop artists, including Ray Charles, Otis Redding, James Taylor, Israel Kamakawiwo'ole, Nat King Cole, Bob Marley, Stevie Nicks, UB40, Bill Withers, and Stevie Wonder. The result was his own blend of all of those genres, with some acoustic rock and Polynesian added to the mix.
Loa's rich, smooth baritone and soulful delivery evoke comparisons to a combination of John Mayer and Jack Johnson. In 2011 he released his debut solo recording Better Place, followed by Shades of Grey in 2012 and Thoughts of Christmas in 2013. In late 2014 he traveled to Nashville to work with songwriters Chris Gelbuda (Meghan Trainor) and GRAMMY® Award winner Tim Fagan, (whose hits include the Colbie Caillat/Jason Mraz duet "Lucky" and John Mayer's "Deeper"), recording their song Waiting For Me on the Shore for release as a single in early 2015.
As Loa's popularity has grown, so too, has the recognition (he was presented with the GigMasters' "Best of 2013" and "Best of 2014" Awards) and the demand for him to perform. In 2013-2014 alone he performed at over 300 shows, and that number continues to increase. He has appeared at venues such as the venerable House of Blues, Ford Amphitheatre, and the Roxy, in addition to regular bookings at Downtown Disney and the Disneyland Hotel. He is a fixture at Hawaiian and Pacific Islander festivals, and has also performed at Mai Tai Bars in both Southern California and Hawai'i.
