hawaii's best wedding music band dj

Nick Pugay Photography

If your wedding and our music went on a blind date, it would be love at first sight.

Mango Season will sweep you off your feet with

a live wedding music experience that feels just like you.

Hi, we’re Mango Season!

But our friends call us Curtis & Annie.

That's us in 2004 when we got married. (this pic truly sums up our personalities!)

Music made our wedding day.  I still get goose bumps when I remember the Celtic song that played for my walk down the aisle.  Our friends forever joke that our first dance made everyone cry.  And, seeing my dad boogie down on the dance floor with my little nieces was priceless.  It wasn't just a party, it was an experience.

This is the most important day of your life. You don't want hum-drum. You want dazzling. You want friends raving about your first dance for years to come. You want to feel delicious shivers up your spine when you see your love waiting for you at the alter.

And music is what makes every moment of your wedding day memorable.

See how you can have this!

  • We've Worked with 100+ Awesome Wedding Clients

    Planning your wedding day is as important to us as our own wedding day. And we’ve had a ton of practice over the years to know what music you need for all the right moments. Just get used to the fact that we are going to become like family (without the nagging). But don’t just take our word for it.

  • We are Artists. Musicians. Event Planners (oh my!)

    We have over 25 years combined experienced in the business of making music, theatre, public speaking, and event planning.  We will take you from consultation to planning your favorite moments to constructing your timeline to emceeing your evening to delivering exquisite music to ecstatic bride all without consulting another vendor.

  • We Are Creative & Passionate Entrepreneurs

    And we know you are also a creative and passionate couple. Our business is allowing you the space to bring any creative idea to the table, big or small, and have us expertly deliver on it. We are ready to brainstorm, research, Pinterest, and even create new music to satisfy your unique wedding music vision.

  • We LOVE Our Day Job!

    Our focus will not be pulled away from your wedding because making music is our day job.  And, in the spaces where we are not working on your wedding, we are creating music, planning tours, and performing locally.  We absolutely love what we do and we’re good at it.

I promise you...
you don’t want to spend 80%* of your time planning your wedding online only to create a blah wedding day.

You want a day that is uniquely yours. That expresses your personal style. That feels like an experience not just an event. And, sure, you could rely on an iPod for your most important day. Or…

“Mango Season is the best! Their presence added a certain warmth to our atmosphere and enhanced the romance in the air. Annie & Curtis are in love with each other and that comes through in everything they do, from their hands-on service to their lovely music.”

Frequently Answered Questions

We've culled together the Best FAQs from our past bridal couples just for you.

How much do you cost? +

I’m not sure a package or customization is right for me, help! Fear not, cracking this code for you is our speciality.  Brides who choose a music package are very decisive and more comfortable leaning on our expertise to "have it done for you".  Brides who choose a customized music plan have a crystal clear idea of every detail and are ready to put more elbow grease into the decision making.  Whatever your personality or which option you choose, as soon as we receive your inquiry we'll go to work finding you the perfect amount of time and music to fit your wedding vision.

What is included in my package or customization? Besides awesome music crafted just for you and your guests, we provide: up to three (3) PA sound systems for different locations at your venue (even on the beach!); a wireless, handheld microphone for your officiant and for your emcee, speeches & toasts; we learn up to two (2) new songs of your choosing; we give you access to a cover song list of over 350 song choices; one (1) site visit to your wedding venue; a personalized music timeline; two (2) 45-minute strategy sessions to help prepare music for all your magic moments and answer all your questions; time for equipment set-up & break down; a convenient, personalized website that offers you easy online payment and contracts (among other goodies); and all travel on O'ahu (For travel off-island, please inquire about additional costs.).  All of our packages also include emcee services.

You mention you can travel. Where are you located and how does travel work? We are located on the island of O'ahu in the capital city of Honolulu.  We travel and perform throughout O'ahu and the outer Hawaiian Islands, the mainland U.S., and anywhere else your little heart desires.  If we travel off of O'ahu, there will be additional travel fees. These fees typically include airfare for each band member, baggage fees, lodging, car rental, fuel, parking, food, and a small labor fee.  You can find out more about additional travel costs by dropping Annie a line or during our complimentary consultation.

I’m on a tight budget. Do you offer discounts? No, we currently do not offer discounts; however, booking multiple hours does offer some savings.  Being married ourselves, we know that smart folks think twice about where they spend their hard earned cash.  Our services our not cheap and a lower price is always easy to find.  But we know that the price and equipment won't make your wedding — it's the professionalism, the people, and capturing the uniqueness of your wedding that is what will leave the biggest lasting impression.  We don't ever skimp so you can remain cool-as-a-cucumber on your wedding day and forever remember how the music made your nuptials a killer experience.

Why do I need music at a wedding? +

I’m just not sure we need music for our wedding (and I don’t know what songs to pick anyway). You are NOT alone!  Many couples we talk to feel this way, and there's this lingering feeling in the back of their minds that they should have music.  But why?

Have you ever been to a wedding or an event where the room is silent?  Awkward as all get-out, right?  Music offers your guests - and you! - a chance to relax, unwind, and feel the festiveness, the specialness of your day.  Music is what tells people there's a celebration happening.  Music is what moves one moment to another moment, seamlessly.  And, your wedding music is literally the soundtrack to your love story.

Also, when you hire professional wedding entertainment, you are not just hiring a team to craft memorable music for your wedding day but a team of professional musicians with many years of experience performing just for weddings.  It makes a huge difference.  We understand how to make your processional song come alive at just the right moment and we know when ambient music is best versus when to rock out.  We come prepared with the highest-quality equipment.  And, we are ready to do whatever we can to make the music absolutely yours and not a cookie cutter version of someone else's wedding.

Live Music or DJ? +

How do I know whether to hire Live Music or a DJ? First, it’s good to know what live musicians do well and what a DJ does well (because, the cool thing is, you can hire BOTH!). In fact, we often work side-by-side with DJs at weddings where the need for different musical expertise is desired and it works perfectly:

Live music is more intimate. And more flexible – any song you choose, we can rearrange just for you. A live performance is unique, interactive, and very present. You and your audience can genuinely connect with live performers.

A DJ is great for playing an original song straight from the radio – you want that exact copy, they provide it. DJs do popular group dances like the Chicken Dance or the Macarena to perfection (we love you. But the Chicken Dance is NOT in our wheelhouse).

Can we hire you as our DJ? No, our expertise is live music. And we do what we do exceptionally well. However, if your heart is set on hearing the original version of a song, we can provide sound cues for you. And we always offering ambient music during our breaks. The best way to figure out these small, nitty-gritty details is during our consultation.

“Mango Season is extremely professional! I liked some of their covers better than the original version. Annie was also super helpful throughout the planning process. I would recommend them to anyone getting married in Oahu!”

“My wedding was in Los Angeles, CA and they did a perfect job coordinating details. To top it off, they customized a special song for our first dance which ended being the MOST epic part of our wedding. I will never forget how well that turned out and how amazing it felt dancing to their beautiful voices. My husband and I love them so much!”
