We love Hawaiian music and loved the stories that host George Jr. told and loved hearing and watching the steel guitar being played.

“Great show”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

If you want to get a taste of the Hawaiian music this show is a must! Especially if you like that kind of music. It is not tiring, it is a bit expensive but worth the cost so I suggest you go and relax with the sounds of slack key guitar!

“Get Your ALOHA Here!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2013

While in Maui during June and July, I had the opportunity to revisit George Kahumoku's Slack Key Show featuring the masters of Hawaiian music. As always the show was fantastic - Ledward Kaapana was the featured guest - he is great and deserves the title of Grand Master. However, I got much more than just another great show of Hawaiian music. I tried to schedule our trip to catch the week long slack key workshop that George hosts each June so that I could learn more about playing slack key guitar. Unfortunately we arrived mid way through the week of the workshop. I called Nancy (George's wife, who like many women are really the ones who make things happen) and she invited me to join the group the next morning. She provided me with copies of the written material from the workshop, introduced me to people and took time out of her busy day to help me. I set up two private sessions with George and was treated to his perfect explanation of the music he loves. George and Nancy Kahumoku are amazing people who are truly helping perpetuate this music and simply have "Aloha" in their psyche. Go to the Slack Key Show, but take the time to talk to George and Nancy as well as the other performers - they will add to your life!

“The Master: A Hawaiian Life”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2013

This is an awesome show every time. We have experienced many wonderful nights listening to Peter, Garrett, George, Sterling and Guests!
Last time was a few weeks ago when we say Uncle Richard Ho'opii. Check out the film about Uncle George. Beautifully done. Uncle George also grows coffee, goats, chickens, ducks and small horses on his farm. He is truly a "renaissance man"
