Now in his early 20s, Pfluke has been playing 'ukulele since he was ten. He has a wealth of experience performing at venues all over Maui, the west coast, and in Japan. Influenced by a variety of artists including Ledward Kaapana, Bob Marley, Mike Love, Trevor Hall, John Mayer, Ed Sheeran, and Dennis Kamakahi, he has performed with and opened for many of Hawai'i's top names, as well as alongside artists such as Willie Nelson, Steven Tyler, and Jack Johnson at the “Concert for Our Lives" in 2018. He has also performed at slack key festivals and events such as the APP World Tour stand up paddling competition and the halftime show at the 2023 Hawaiʻi Bowl.
Pfluke's first teacher was Kumu Kealoha Delos Santos, and multiple Grammy® winner George Kahumoku Jr. mentored him on slack key guitar. Kahumoku once said, "I've watched his talent grow into one of the shakers and movers of the next generation of Hawaiian music. Sometimes I forget that he is still a 16 year old, because he already plays and sings like a pro."
Lahaina Strong was produced, recorded, and engineered by multiple Grammy® and Nā Hōkū Hanohano Award winner Dave Tucciarone. Pfluke is on vocals and plays ‘ukulele and 12 string slack key guitar. Contributing artists include Kapono Nā’ili’ili (percussion), and Dave Tucciarone (bass). It is available on all digital outlets. The song will also be included on his new EP to be released in 2024.
