We were so surprised at how much we enjoyed this show. The music and dancing were so much fun. We especially liked the 2nd half of the show, when the young guys joined the older musicians and "jammed"!

Bear in mind: this is a live show. Seating is on regular chairs which may be very uncomfortable for some. Parking can be difficult. All that being said I had a wonderful time: Uncle George Kahumoku and his twelve string guitar, brother Nolan’s vocals and...More

We were unfamiliar with slack key guitar but are going home fans. This is authentic music played by outstanding musicians. Go early and get a near front seat for a "before concert" ukelele lesson. Max Angel, a talented young musician, brings a wide assortment of...More

I kept a photo of the menu :). Island Salad, choice of entree: fish, filet, scampi, and pineapple tiramisu for dessert. It was all very good.

We called ahead to reserve a seat. Tickets were available at the door. We went early after dinner & sat on the front row. This was a fantastic night. Don't miss it, whatever you have to do. Just go. Incredible show.

I called the show and paid for the tickets over the phone. I think you can purchase online and you can also buy them just before the show. It was not full.
