Residents of Honolulu, Tiffa and Imua bring a lifetime of musical artistry, recording and performance experience to the stage.

Tiffany “Tiffa” Cruz Garza started writing songs at the age of eight and picked up the guitar when she was 12 years old. She has performed with her multi-talented family members, the late Ernie Cruz Sr., Ernie Cruz Jr. and Guy Cruz, as well as with popular musician John Cruz and her sister, Connie Cruz.

Tiffa formed her own bands, The Girlas (2006) and One Right Turn (2008). These days, she entertains as a vocalist.

Imua Garza’s interest in music started at the age of nine when he began playing the piano and soon was playing the ukulele, guitar and electric bass.

In 1996, Imua founded his first group, the Opihi Pickers, with his brother, Hoku, their cousin, Kahale, and friend, Kevin. Imua served as producer, composer, lead vocalist and ukulele player in this popular Hawaiian reggae band until 2008.

Today, Imua is president of Zeo Music, an independent recording studio, a record producer, arranger and performer.
