Laid-back. Genuine. Professional.
Barefoot Minded will make every effort to ensure that you and your guests will have a memorable experience. They truly care about your event and want nothing more than to see you and your guests having an epic time.
Barefoot Minded duo, led by Oren Masserman, started in Lahaina in 2006.
Always performing from a young age, Oren played percussion and provided vocals in various bands throughout high school and college. Upon arrival in Maui in 2005, he quickly learned to play the ukulele and enjoyed playing alongside other local guitarists and vocalists. The inspiring surroundings and daily adventures Maui provided lended greatly to the fun beachy vibe these musicians would bring to their gigs. Originally, the duo played in Lahaina bars and restaurants, but they were quickly discovered by local event coordinators and have since transitioned to mostly weddings and corporate events all over Maui and the outer islands. Barefoot Minded has recently incorporated a bassist to offer a trio option for clients who are looking for a band.
Now a family man, Oren can often be found on the beaches of West Maui surfing and catching waves with his two young boys and his lovely wife. He still very much enjoys jamming alongside some of Maui's top musicians as Barefoot Minded and is so grateful to make a living performing in the beautiful islands of Hawaii.
what people are saying about us
“Simply the BEST Wow!”
Talk about incredible musicians! We were so lucky to have them play our wedding. They seamlessly blended our day from guests arrival through ceremony to cocktail hour and reception. We asked them to learn a song for our procession and I want to cry thinking about how beautiful it all sounded. After returning to the party from photos, we had guests saying how killer the band was - we couldn't be happier or more grateful!
