They picked up their first guitar and ukulele and began jamming in their friends’ backyards by makeshift bonfires and barbecue pits. Vocalist Ku Hawkins later joined the group along with bassist Mike Paulino, drummer/vocalist Nico Tuilesu, and keyboardist Paul Bowen. The multi-talented group quickly gained recognition throughout the region and the Tribal Theory vibe has continued to spread.Tribal Theory has established themselves as one of the most sought after “live” performing groups in Southern California.
