About Makani E

Hawaiian Music

Makani E

Jim and Rozz Lowry have been playing music together for many years. 

Jim is a gifted guitarist having played music most of his life.  When Hawai'i called this boy from California, he immersed himself in island living on Maui where he lived for several years as a Boat Captain/Dive Instructor/Dinner Boat Captain during the day and musical artist at night.  He found his island girl that held all the same beliefs and principles of island living in his wife of several years, the band's female member, Rozz Lowry.  This Hawai'i born-and-raised girl grew up on O'ahu until adulthood then moved to Maui.  When not being the "Island Entrepeneur", she enjoyed playing Hawaiian music whenever the opportunity arose. 

They moved to the Pacific Northwest in 2000 and bring with them the lifestyle, spirit, culture, and music of Hawai'i.

Both of them grasp on to their Hawaiian and Island Style and culture by providing audiences everywhere a taste of their island music.  "We love playing music together", says Rozz.  "We found a way to hold on to Hawai'i in our hearts through the music. It gives us great joy to share it".


About Elias Kauhane

Elias Kauhane

A true “island son”, Elias was born on the island of O’ahu & raised in the windward town of Kane’ohe. His musical influences, like most , began at home. His father played ukulele & sang. Elias’ grandparents were well known in the Waikiki music scene & performed with many of the greats of that golden period, such as Aunty Genoa Keawe, Marlene Sai & Sonny Chillingworth.

Elias attended Kamehameha Schools from 1973 to 1979, where he was selected to join the acclaimed Kamehameha Schools Concert Glee Choir & sang as a tenor alongside Tony Conjugacion, Lopaka Ho’opii, & Nephi Brown. His love for Hawaiian music was deeply ingrained under the guidance of his music instructors Robert Cazimero, Wayne Chang, Zillah Young & Dale Noble.

He graduated in 1979 and, after several years of travel & military service, he returned to Honolulu where he met his wife, Lisa, a local haole girl. Elias has been a resident of the Puget Sound community of Richmond Beach, Washington, since 1995.

Elias also works part time at Hawaiian Airlines in Seattle. Next time you are travelling to the Islands via Hawaiian Airlines, you may see him at the ticket counter or serenading guests at the boarding gate.
