The Po’okela Street Band a.k.a "PSB" has been electrifying crowds for the last 15 years in Seattle with their versatility, tight vocal harmonies and energetic stage presence.
The band started out in the mid ‘90s in the Pacific Northwest, uniquely fusing Jamaican reggae and Hawaiian Island style rhythms to form a musical style known as "Jawaiian.” Jawaiian is a musical movement developed in the 1990s in Hawaii.
As the band continued to evolve musically, they now are a high energy pop reggae group that continues to produce a fusion of Top 40, R&B, rock, rap and country with a heavy reggae back beat.
Their unique style defies all attempts to categorizing them into a single genre of music, giving PSB widespread appeal and capturing an array of musical influences.
