From the islands to the desert, Lani "Supa Lani-Chan" Villanueva is an entertainer, multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, and music educator from Tucson, Arizona. Over the last 21 years, Lani has picked up over 53 instruments and can comfortably play 19 of them!
On top of that, she serves as the Managing Director of Tucson's musical revue group "One Rehearsal Short" and was recently named the 2023 Director's Award recipient at Miss Arizona USA competing as Arizona's first-ever "Miss Aloha Tucson USA" In May 2023, Lani was also one of 20 people selected across the country to play in the first North American Taiko Taikai in Little Tokyo in California.
Lani has provided entertainment and programming for Monkey Paw Entertainment since 2012 and is super stoked to continue to bring high energy to her "backyard con" here in Tucson! When she's not busy with music or cons, she's either watching cartoons/anime, playing Dance Dance Revolution, playing games on her Switch, or probably at Disneyland with Austin!
