Islanders Luau History: In 1970, Islanders Luau was formed with the hard work and creative vision of Susiana, a young Samoan mom, in a small shop in Riverside. She trained dancers and musicians who have been performing all over SoCal ever since. Her children, Masina and Maril, danced for her show at an early age. Her brothers, sisters, and husband were lassoed into the Hawaiian band to the delight of audiences. Her Islanders Luau became such a hit, that Susiana decided to try her hand at catering, and then floral arranging, and island decor.
Her son, Maril, graduated from college and worked as a project manager for a major corporation, yet continued to entertain every weekend as a fire dancer in the family luau business. After many years in the corporate world, Maril decided to hang up his suit and tie for good and use his project management skills to take over the family business. The combination of professional business expertise coupled with years and years of entertaining are what make Islanders Luau exceptional.
Maril’s four sons often dance at the shows, even though they have professional careers of their own. His son Nathan graduated from UCLA dental school and moved his little family to American Samoa to work at the LBJ Tropical Medical Center to keep the family’s island heritage alive. Preston has graduated from USC dental school, and he dances quite often. Maril’s wife, Diana, is the Islanders designer, florist, advertising guru, accountant, schedular and does quality control. Son, Tyler, dances when he is in SoCal, and Maril’s youngest son, Miles, is working his way through college as the Islanders Luau web designer. His niece, Kayleen, trains the dancers, and is a singer for the family business. Maril’s mom, Susiana, can often be seen at shows and plays her ukulele singing “Hanalei Moon” by special request, and she whips everyone into shape at the shop, while Maril’s sister performs the hula for family weddings.
