The annual Maui Steel Guitar Festival is just around the corner. Greg Sardinha will be one of the performers. As in the past the festival will be held at Kaanapali Beach Hotel in beautiful Lahaina Maui and is free to the public.
We love fall! Although the beautiful island of Oahu doesn't have Fall like the mainland doesn't mean we don't know how beautiful the season is. The transition from hot and long summer days to cooler temperature and an earlier sunset is so welcomed. The leaves on the trees changing from green to oranges, reds and yellows is a sight onto itself. It's really a magical time of year. To celebrate this visually stunning season we'd like to offer all of our customers 20% off all orders with the code FALL2015. This code will be valid through October 31st.
This is the perfect time to stock up on your music collection or buying a few CDs for gifts.
On Monday April, 27, 2015 The Polynesian Cultural Center unveiled a beautiful life-size bronze statue in honor of Joseph Kekuku, the inventor of the steel guitar. Many members of the Hawaiian Steel Guitar Association attended to ceremony. A special steel guitar performance was also held in his memory.
Who doesn't love live music? Especially after a long day of work or activity. That Pau Hana time is classic Hawaii so here are some venues you are able to catch Greg Sardinha and a few of his friends playing some of those solid Hawaiian tunes!
