CHET DECAMBRA BIO - LEAD SINGER, GUITAR, SAXOPHONE, KEYBOARD, RECORDING ENGINEER
Chet DeCambra started his career as a young boy growing up on the Big Island of Hawaii. As a child Chet grew up in the town of Honokaa. Chet was the first born to Mr. Leonard and Paula DeCambra on November 2nd, 1972. four years later they gave birth to their second child (Chet's baby sister) Cher.
While growing up Chet spent many hours listening to music because his dad was an accomplished musician and had his own band called the Country Lads. The original Country Lads were as follow: Leonard DeCambra lead guitar, Keith Enanoria Lead Vocals, and guitar, Milton Camara on Bass and backup vocals, Peter Enanoria on Trumpet, and finally Steven Lawrence on drums.
This was the people who influenced Chet the most in his early years. Not to mention these individuals were also part of his musical family. Following the band around while his mom worked nights he learned what a musicians life was all about at a very young age. at the age of 6 Chet started to play the saxophone with the help of his grandfather and at the time Hamakua Band Master Peter Enanoria. Chet, His grandfather, and father were very close and would play and practice together frequently. It was here where Chet learned the true meaning of music and family and the special bond music had given them.
Chet Joined the band at 8 years old, and it was up hill for him ever since. Chet played and toured with his dads band which later became his "the Country Lads". Together the memories made was gold and till this day Chet keeps very close to his heart. " These were the people who believed in me and who supported me through thick and thin even when i thought we sucked, they kept me going and always encouraged me to do my best. for this i will never forget these wonderful family members who i had the honor of being with for so many years."
Then tragedy hit, and Chet was nearly killed in a head on traffic collision. Chet was thrown through the windshiled and almost lost his life that day. His scull had been cracked, face mulled, legs broke, and he was in a down hill spiral. His mom the driver was also badly injured as was Chet's nephew Jr who was in the car also. After a year in rehab, 4 plastic surgeries, and alot of love and support Chet rose from that tragedy and made it to television. At the age of 10 Chet was featured on Hawaii Superkids co-hosted by Andy Bumatai. After his tv appearance, Chet's fame began to grow throughout the State of Hawaii, and before you knew it, he was playing every night club, bar, wedding, car show you name it he's done it.
