While living in San Francisco, California, he formed the island-reggae rock band, My Peoples (formerly Kapakahi); and after a good run with them, Mike Dayao is exploring his solo path as a Hawaiian Contemporary Musician, sharing ALOHA and positive island vibes to the masses. His captivating lyrics will leave you humming his melodies, and his wholesome, yet soulful voice will fill the corners of any room and make you wonder how such a sound can come from such a small Filipino-Hawaiian. His sounds will take you back to when Hawaii radio stations would play Ka’au Crater Boys and Kalapana but with a fresh urban twist. Many define his style of music as a blend of Bob Marley & Bruno Mars, mixed in with a bit of Jack Johnson and John Cruz. Throughout some of his live sets, including his bi-weekly gig at Noelani’s Bar & Grill in San Carlos, you'll find him accompanied by percussionists Luis Hernandez & his Uncle Pete.
