Brad, Alan, Ryan, Nick

You all were absolutely fantastic! … Thank you so much … the party was so much fun! Everyone is still talking about how great your music is! And how much fun they had dancing.”
– Dan Penney

Come to a Show:


With a penchant for soulful, grooving island rock & hip hop, Big Island band Kingside is on a mission to make you move with their music.

The band consists of longtime friends Alan Ku, Brad Bordessa, and Ryan Higgins on bass, uke/vox, and guitar/vox respectively and newest addition Nick Rohfeld on the drums. Ryan (who goes by the artist name Higgs) and Brad are solo artists in their own right, and the quartet plays original songs penned by the two of them, as well as covering a genre-spanning range of tunes – from Sister Hazel to CeeLo Green.

Currently working on writing their first album as a group, Kingside also plays out around Hawaii at local bars, restaurants and events. Catch them rocking a stage near you.

Whether you’re in Waimea, Honokaʻa, or Waikoloa, Kingside would love to come play at your next event! Baby luʻau, graduation party, you name it we can rock the house down and provide a PA system.
