the weekly show at napili beach is great. I didn't love the seating in the tent - it's uncomfortable folding chairs but the musicians are top notch.

This is a great show. It's like 4 shows in one! It starts with the founder, George Kahumoko playing guitar and singing some very beautiful Hawaiian songs. Next, the guest artist(s) come out and play their music. After a break, Da Ukulele Boyz play their fun set, and finally, there is a jam session with all of artists. Also, you... More

What a wonderful evening for so little money. We were not expecting a full evening of entertainment for the price. We loved the setting and the performers were incredible. Booked this show on a whim without any idea what it would involve. The narration was informative and the give and take among the performers was delightful. I would gladly see... More

The Hawaiian music is so easy on the ears. This was authentic Hawaiian music and loved every bit of it. We really enjoyed all the Hawaiian history stories told, as well as the personal stories about the musicians. It's very laid back. The night we were there, the Guest Master was Ken Emerson. He has mastered the steel guitar, which... More

My husband and I, both in our 40s, were looking forward to some true Hawaiian music, but we just got bored. It was neat to hear in the beginning but we just had to leave at intermission... Not for us, especially not for $45/per person

I didn't really know was slack key guitar music was all about, but now I know and I just love it. The show is just 2 - 4 extremely talented guys singing and playing their hearts out on ukulele and guitar with a terrific hula dancer performing in 3 or 4 select pieces. The show was very informal as the... More

The setting is in a large tent which the night we went was billowing with the left over wind of a tropical storm which added charm to this authentic Hawaiian evening entertainment. The music was relaxing and all the artists very professional playing in different styles. I really enjoyed the Ukulele Boys - especially the piece they played which was... More

First, I have to laugh at the "guitar was out of tune" comment. Obviously doesn't understand "slack Key" guitar. If you want canned Luau music, skip this, listen to old Don Ho albums. Yes, there's no alcohol. But there is live, authentic, great, relaxing music. Played by the Masters. Listen online first, if you've never heard it. If you love... More
