Keahi Pi'iohia a.k.a @keahi1231 is a graduate of Kamehameha and his hometown is in Kailua, Oahu. He is a proud father of his one year old son and a loving husband. When he is not killing it on Vocals, Keys, or writing, he is a kia'i of @paepaeoheeia. For fun, he bodyboards, plays softball, fishes, and of course is a huge advocate for #alohaaina. He has previously jammed in: IHZZHI, Sensination, Pressure Drop, One Drop, and Roots Remedy. Did you know? He is a founding director of the @kekahua non-profit that is working to help create a place for Hawaiian arts and practices to flourish!
His musical influences are:
Steel Pulse, Aswad, Isreal Vibrations, Earth Wind & Fire, and Amonos Lee
Our favorite lyrical quote from Keahi:
"In this time when there are too many leaders, not enough farmers, not enough teachers and the politicians they all are cheaters, what about the fisherman?!?!" -stay away
What we love about Keahi: He's the most solid kanaka you will find, always on time, and will give you the malo right off his ass if you need 'em. His lyrics speak for themselves!! He is a VITAL part of the team and we are blessed to have him as a part of the family. #hukidamalo#justgottawashum #teamvitals #thevitals #thevitals808 #reggae
Ata Boy (Vocals/Guitar)
He is a proud daddy, and in his spare time, he enjoys bodyboarding, spending time with his son and family, pupus & beers, and hawaiian music. He has jammed with One Drop, Freedem, Sensination, The City Boys, Kuaana, J Griddi, Shy City, and Kanaka Roots to name a few. His musical influences are: Bob Marley, Steel Pulse, Gregory Isaacs, Sugar Minott, Roots Radics and many more.
Did you know? Ata used to have long dreads during his full time musicians days in Cali. He is a poet when it comes to writing and is also a full-time carpenter (so he can build you a house ladies 😉) Status: single
What we love about Ata: he is the life of the party and if you were stranded on an island and you could only take one of the vitals with you, he is the one you want! (you might starve, but you will die laughing). His laugh and smile are infectious and you can count on him to be there every single time (although he might show up 2 hours late, but he will be there, and he'll bring you Jack In the Box tacos to make up for being late).#atabot #askhimtoshoulderroll
