She and her band performed in various clubs in Waikiki also fronting concerts for bands like Tower of Power, Deodato, War, Herbie Mann, and Cold Blood and were a mainstay for the acclaimed “Sunset Festivals” concert series held every year until in 1976, they moved to Los Angeles and changed their group name to "Seawind". They performed throughout the world and recorded five albums together. Pauline's recording credits include; Bruce Hornsby, Bill Medley, Brenda Russell, The Yellowjackets, Jim Messina, Michel Colombier, Celine Dion, and The Crusaders, to name a few.
