The Tahitian on Geary & Hyde was one of the best spots to perform in the 1950s and 60s. My mother's group, Lokelani's Islanders, performed 4 nights a week (Thursday through Sundays), 3 shows a night. "Lokelani's Islanders" was the first commercially successful Polynesian dance and music group within the state of California (1962), and it was through the efforts of Kumu Lokelani that the Hawai'ian culture flourished on the West Coast. Lokelani performed for many years on the Hawai'i Calls - "Under the Banyan Tree" as well as with Aunty Genoa Keawe, Arthur Godrey, Don Ho, Bob Hope, her kumu Lena Machado and an array of world renowned Hawai'ian entertainers. Today Lokelani still performs at private functions and venues.
