Waikiki Steel Guitar Week

Peter Garellick

Peter Garellick is the steel guitarist for San Francisco area Hawaiian trio Haopinaka. Peter plays Hawaiian steel guitar, ukulele and bass. He also performs with the country band Crying Time, and the Javanese Gamelan Ensemble Sari Raras.

Haopinaka was formed in 1998 when three friends from different backgrounds came together to share their love of Hawaiian music. The name "Haopinaka" is a combination of the words HAO-le (white guy), PI-noy (Filipino guy), and ka-NAKA (Hawaiian guy). And it is this unique friendship of cultures and styles that creates the sweet and lively sound of Haopinaka.
