Kalani Laimana, aka DJ Krucial K
I was born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii and moved to the Okanagan Valley when I was in my late teens. Growing up in a musical family in Hawaii and being exposed to great entertainers sparked my interest in performing. It also brought me to realize that entertaining would be my lifelong passion! I am inspired by all types of music. This motivates me to create excitement in the mix and keep the dance floor going all night.
I have been a DJ/Turntablist for more than 2 decades, DJing at weddings, events, concerts, nightclubs and live on air.
During my career, I have had the honour to open for acts such as the Dutch techno group 2 Unlimited, Snow, Tone Loc, DJ Jazzy Jeff, MC Mario, Canada’s DMC Champ DJ Wax, Ice Cube, Chingy, Snoop Dogg, Obie Trice, The Powder Blues Band, 54-40, k-os, Bif Naked, Choclair, Moka Only, Baby Blue Sound Crew and Julie Black. I was also selected to DJ twice at exclusive functions for Avril Lavigne.
My radio show, The Saturday Night Hotmix with DJ Krucial K “The Flyin’ Hawaiian” ran for 7 years and was picked up by many radio stations throughout B.C.. During that time, I established myself as one of the top DJs in the Okanagan, and received the listener’s choice award for best Kelowna radio DJ connecting with thousands of listeners from B.C., Alberta and into the US.
My passion is spinning records and playing a variety of music for everyone to enjoy. I have a massive collection from old school classics to today’s best music and I will create a fresh mix that will keep everyone happy and engaged during your party.
My mission is to listen to you and deliver a fun and exciting celebration that exceeds your expectations!
Let me help you create the wedding or event that your guests will be talking about years from now!

“The Flyin’ Hawaiian”
I was born in Halifax, Nova Scotia and raised in Ottawa, Ontario. As much as I love Canada’s east, my heart is in the Okanagan Valley.
Along with Kalani and our son, Kainoa, I feel unbelievably lucky to call this place with its hot sun, beautiful beaches, wineries, mountains and breathtaking backdrops my home.
I have a passion for weddings and event planning and understand how important it is to have quick and accurate responses from your vendors.
While Kalani is busy rocking the house, at a meeting or putting together your perfect music mix, I am available to answer your questions, take bookings, provide planning materials and advice and anything else you may need.
I am here to help to make your booking and planning process smooth and stress free!
