Jeff Au Hoy

Jeff Au Hoy Largely self-taught, Jeff Au Hoy has mentored under the likes of local steel guitarist Bobby Ingano and brings an "old soul" feeling when he plays his Frypan. His playing style reflects those of steel legends David Kelii, Billy Hew Len, Pua Almeida, and Benny Rogers. Jeff has recorded with the Brothers Cazimero, Jeff Teves Quartette, Pueo Pata, Aaron Sala and others. In 2004 he received a call to perform at Carnegie Hall with the cast of the Hawaii Calls show. Currently he performs with Cyril Pahinui at the Outrigger Reef on the Beach hotel. Although Jeff is a trained pianist and can play in a number of genres, his interest lies primarily in Hawaiian music of the 1940s and 50s.
