The group comprised Akaka on guitar, four steel guitarists, U-bass and upright bass players, and two 'ukulele players. Although only four steel guitarists were featured in the program, all eight musicians are steel guitarists. The steel guitarists switched off to 'ukulele when they weren't featured.

Mele Pakolu is a monthly Hawaiian music event incorporated into the Royal Hawaiian Center's Mele 'Ai Pohaku (songs of the people) initiative. Mele Pakolu features live music and hula and is presented during the first week of each month.
