Intimate and welcoming
May 2021
This is a long standing weekly event highlighting traditional and contemporary Hawaiian slack key music. The performers are local, highly acclaimed and very talented musicians. If you enjoy music in the slack key style, if you want to learn more about Hawaiian culture, attending this show is a no brainer. It is rare treat to see so much virtuosity on stage, in such an intimate and welcoming setting. Do not hesitate to attend!

Wonderful show and great people!
Apr 2021 • Couples
We loved this show and were glad they had it. So many shows are still not open. We wore masks and the chairs were paired up, then had appropriate distance between them. We had the opportunity to purchase a drink at the adjacent restaurant, and the Mai Tais were delicious. The show was wonderful. We loved George and all of the other artists. All had beautiful voices as well as playing an instrument. A lovely lady also did a pretty hula. The only thing preventing us from giving this five stars was that we expected the show to go from 5:30-7:30, and we were out by about 6:45, so it was shorter than was advertised, which then threw off our dinner reservation, etc.

A terrific show by masters of Hawaiian Slack Key!
Oct 2020
These shows are terrific fun- - a hit of real home-grown Hawaiian music by amazing musicians! It's a must each trip to Maui. Uncle George Kahumoku and his wonderful guests never fail to put on a great show. And the venue is on Napili Bay, one of the best beaches on Maui. Arrive early and have a swim before the show!

Entertaining and Cultural Show!
Mar 2020
We purchased the Dinner/Show combo online and enjoyed our "Slack Key Dinner" at the Sea House before the show. On March 11, the guest artist was Kawika Kahiapo but we enjoyed the whole ensemble, especially the stories told by the host, Peter deAquino (George was out of town). The guitar music was great, but I never knew the ukelele could produce such excellent sounds in the hands of a master! I also thoroughly enjoyed the hula dancing by Wainani Kealoha and bought her DVD to enjoy back home. Seating is on a first-come basis but we got excellent seats by sitting on the left side in the front, even though we were not near the head of the line. The venue is covered, so no fears about rain, and has restrooms on site. Plan to attend on a Wednesday night!

Highlight of our trip!
Mar 2020 • Couples
George was not there the night we attended as he was on tour. We’ve heard him before on a tour and the musician , Led K., who played tonight was his equal! Peter who “ hosted”the show was a great musician and wonderful story teller. We had already been in Hawaii for almost a month and this was one of the highlights!

Great Entertainmet
Feb 2020
The title says it all. While the individual artists were excellent, the post intermission jam was outstanding. If fact it was the best part of the show. Many of those in attendance were repeat guests and were extremely friendly, sharing their prior experiences, as well providing sites to see.

Great how, big variety
Feb 2020
We went to this show not knowing what to expect. We thought it was an excellent program. The main performer Kevin Brown (joined by his daughter) was great, with good songs and wonderful stories. In the second half 4 other well known performers join together for some great music. All musicians were very talented. Would recommend this show which only happens once a week on Wednesdays,

Very Enjoyable
Jan 2020
This show was very enjoyable, entertaining, and fun. It was one of the must-do things on our list for Maui and we are very glad we went. We suggest you buy your tickets online (there is a small fee but still a little less than buying them at the door) and arrive early to get good seats. It is a covered outdoor venue with restrooms and water available. We did not see any children or teenagers at this show and do not think it would hold their attention in this day and age unless really interested in this style of music.

Dinner at Sea House and Slack Key show
Dec 2019 • Couples
Great evening of food and music! We got the package deal of Dinner at the Sea House followed by the Hawaiian Slack key show. Food was excellent and the restaurant is right on the water, wonderful view. We had fresh seafood and watched the sun go down, torch lighting at dusk. Then we walked up the path to the open air concert and sat in the front row. Musicians were great. Especially enjoyed Led Kaapana. George Kahmumoku was the host and first entertainer. Lots of local music with ukulele, 12 string and 6 string guitars. Also some authentic hula. Very mellow and very enjoyable! 5 stars.
