I think a collection by Don Ho would be definitely appropriate, and Elvis's album blue hawaii is also a popular characterization of the genre.

Around here, most Luau theme events are more dress code for guests and decor (Hawaiian Shirts) , then music preference.

Before you go too kooky on "Hawaiian Luau" music, I would make sure to understand the party/client's expectations and needs.

Again, around here "Luau" theme means a few true Hawaiian songs (above suggestions all good), along with occasional summer/beach songs (Beach Boys/ Buffet, etc...) and then a great mix of oldies/current/fast/slow - like any good dance party.

I do use Aloha Oe, Hawaii 5-0 theme (very recognizable), Tiny Bubbles, Rock a Hula Baby, Over The Rainbow Medley (brother Iz) etc... scattered in for either "production/background music" or foreground/dancing.

Have fun :)

true.

I was at a gig playing some local Hawaiian artists and one of the guests (destination wedding) came up to me and asked if I could play some good Hawaiian music, like Don Ho. In my area, Don Ho is strictly for the tourists...
