Aloha Chicago Entertainment is a Chicago based entertainment firm founded by Chris Tuia’ana, an entrepreneur and entertainment professional.
History in Polynesian Entertainment
The son of an accomplished Polynesian musician and entertainer, Chris naturally became involved in entertainment as a child. From performing dances and playing music, to setting up and sound-checking equipment, Chris did it all.
Chris’s father, Herman Tapu Tuia’ana performed at world famous venues including the Polynesian Cultural Center in Hawaii and Disney World’s’ Polynesian Village & Resort in Orlando, Florida.
Shortly after uprooting from Orlando to Chicago in the early 70’s, the Tuia’ana family quickly became active members of Chicagoland’s Polynesian community, performing at well-known Chicago hot-spots such as Shanghai Lil’s and Marriott’s Kona Kai restaurant.
