After I first heard "Love Is" by Waikiki in 2002 I needed to know what this person with such a beautiful voice looked like. I didn't even know her name at that point so I googled something like "Waikiki music Australia" to find out more. I found a bit of info about them, including her name, and that they had a website (was it called www.waikikisun.com.au or something?) but it never seemed to work right (those were primitive days!). The only photo of Juanita I could find in 2002 was this one:-
I've got a number of old Waikiki pics, ripped off one of the old Aussie label websites that now seems to be gone. I'm at work at the moment but will drop them on here when I get in. You're right - she looks so young in some of them !
First rule of the InterWWWebs: If you find something you like save it to your PC as there's no guarantee it'll be there tomorrow ! There's a blog with a heap of old Waikiki session and demo tracks but the links have long expired. I've even tried emailing the owner but with no reply. If only I'd saved those too..........

Don't have an exact date for their appearance at 78 Records in the pics above, but it was definitely from the last week of May or first week of June 2002. That was the only time they were in the state of WA for Joel's hair to be that length and for Jimmeh to still be in the band.
This pic comes from early June and his hair is about the same. SN:TV it's a show on Nickelodian, and they chatted, sang, and acted in a skit. ;D Here's a few more too.
