Pamela Gamboa Petersen

Cool Tropical Jazz

I had the pleasure to see and hear Pamela Gamboa Petersen perform as part of Asian Blend at the inaugural 70s Nightclub Reunion this past January, 2005 at the Ilikai Hotel. Asian Blend leader Mitchell Hazama brought his All Star band to this event and one of the main all star of his band that night was Pam. The venue was dance music that night and she smoothly sang the songs of the 70s soooo well.
Hoooo hooooo!!!!! Singing songs like Alicia Bridges' "I Like the Nightlige" to Sister Sledge's "We are Family" made it feel like we were back in the 70s. Finding her website I was able to order a self-made CD of Pamela that showed the full range of this woman's capabilities. From pop to jazz to classical music this woman can sing with the best of them. Pam's singing?? Cool, real cool. Here's something I found on her from her website.


Pam started her career as an entertainer and musician back in Manila, Philippines and has performed with world-class musicians in various concert halls in Asia and in the U. S..

Billed as the “singer with a thousand voices”, Pam is known for her ability to do voice impersonations and stun her audience with her 5-octave range, hence, her most versatile and varied repertoire.

Currently, she is based on Maui, Hawaii , catering to Weddings and Conventions and can be seen playing in hotel lounges all over the island (see below for lounge schedules).

Her versatility in music can be seen in her enormous repertoire ranging from Pop, R&B, Jazz, Hawaiian, Top 40, Disco, Rock and Roll, Rock, Funk and even classical, with configurations from 1 to a 6-piece band! Being a musical arranger, Pam often gets requests to play music that may not be necessarily found in her regular repertoire, which makes her a favorite choice when it comes to special events and occassions.

You can rest-assure that your evening will be well catered to with the ambience her music brings for your cocktail and dinner reception, and well danced-out with the high energy music by the end of the night!
