Nice, soft local music. Great guitar playing but geared for a more senior audience. We left at intermission because we we're falling asleep.

What a talented group of Hawaiian musicians - guitars and ukuleles - who employs open tuning which gave us a fascinatingly enjoyable evening. Not to be missed.

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.
