About

HaleAmanO plays Island Reggae, R&B and Roots style music.

Our group HaleAmano has been together for several years now. We are based out of Las Vegas, NV and have played at many venues, events and festivals in Nevada, California, Arizona, Utah, Texas, Florida and Hawaii. Our music is a fusion of Island Reggae, Roots Reggae, Pop, Rock, Soul and R&B. We offer acoustic sets as well as full-band sets. We have many of our own originals and we are constantly writing more.

We are available for all occasions and events so don’t be shy to hit us up.
