Artist Q&A

@JamminJavaMei's Q&A With Alex Aiono


At only 16, multi-instrumentalist Alex Aiono has already toured nationally and collaborated with A-list industry veterans. We're really excited for his first Jammin Java show this Monday! Check out the fun Q&A and video below and get tickets here.

Where and when was your first show? My first show was last August for Arthur Ashe Kids Day! I remember being on stage and listening to the crowd screaming, and I thought “THIS IS AMAZING!!!! I WANT TO DO THIS FOREVER!!!!!!!!"

What band/artist would you consider to be your main influence? To me, it is so difficult for kids my age to draw influence from one band or artist! So many different acts inspire me! I love listening to new bands and artists like Frank Ocean and the 1975, but I never forget the musical legends like Stevie Wonder and the Beatles!

What is one of your most memorable or off-the-wall touring experiences? I would classify myself as a “Prankster”! So I go on for days about the pranks I pulled on the crew or the other acts! One time I joined forces with the boys from R5 and we filled up a WHOLE COOLER of water balloons! We spent the whole day on the edge of the roof, dropping balloons on anyone who walked in or out!!!

Favorite Food: SUSHI SUSHI SUSHIIIIIIII! Favorite Drink: water:)))

If you were to have a film/movie based on your career, which actors or band would you select to portray yourself? If I had a movie made that would be based on my career, It would be SWEET if I was portrayed by a super action film star like The Rock or Jackie Chan! They wouldn’t look much like me, but they would make me look like an action hero!!! Hehe

What two words would best describe your music? REAL, FRESH!
