What a treat to discover and enjoy the live Hawaiian music at the Kula Lodge. I go to the Lodge a couple/three times a month since it is near my home. I was SO stoked to be able to enjoy a duo called II Pono (as in the number 2). They play in the lounge on Friday and Saturday's 6pm-8pm and Sundays from 11:30am-3pm. I was there on Friday. Their voices are divine and playful as they sang, non stop, from 6-8pm. Mostly older contemporary Hawaiian music, some other older contemporary music like Jimmy Buffett, etc. I've lived on Maui since the mid 70's (arrived for my 20th birthday) and can sing along to most Hawaiian golden oldies (C&K, Onomana, etc). Rain was pelting the bay window in the lounge as the fire crackled and it was totally upcountry Maui.
Lots of folks (visitors) seemed to be stopping in on their way down the mountain or back from Hana. II Pono could play most requests. I might be a little 'dated' in the music I like but it seemed to be so perfect for a cool upcountry evening, a glass of red wine and 'broke the mouth' pizza :)
