The Slack Key Show exceeded our expectations and was so much fun. The music and stories were so enjoyable and the venue is intimate and lovely. It is held in a tent on the Napili Kai grounds. The beautiful music, the sound of water in the background, the gentle breeze...it was just perfect. Highly recommend!

Enjoyed a taste of real Hawaiian slack key guitar in a smaller open air venue (seating about 130). Worth the price. The host plays and sings very well and often invites other excellent local artists. Located at the Napili Kai Beach Resort.

If you love acoustic music you need to go see this show. Traditional authentic and moving music and stories about the music. We were even treated to some hula which was an unexpected surprise that brought me to tears. I will be coming back on every trip to Maui.

This is a long standing weekly event highlighting traditional and contemporary Hawaiian slack key music. The performers are local, highly acclaimed and very talented musicians. If you enjoy music in the slack key style, if you want to learn more about Hawaiian culture, attending this show is a no brainer. It is rare treat to see so much virtuosity on stage, in such an intimate and welcoming setting. Do not hesitate to attend!

We loved this show and were glad they had it. So many shows are still not open. We wore masks and the chairs were paired up, then had appropriate distance between them. We had the opportunity to purchase a drink at the adjacent restaurant, and the Mai Tais were delicious. The show was wonderful. We loved George and all of the other artists. All had beautiful voices as well as playing an instrument. A lovely lady also did a pretty hula. The only thing preventing us from giving this five stars was that we expected the show to go from 5:30-7:30, and we were out by about 6:45, so it was shorter than was advertised, which then threw off our dinner reservation, etc.

These shows are terrific fun- - a hit of real home-grown Hawaiian music by amazing musicians! It's a must each trip to Maui. Uncle George Kahumoku and his wonderful guests never fail to put on a great show. And the venue is on Napili Bay, one of the best beaches on Maui. Arrive early and have a swim before the show!

We purchased the Dinner/Show combo online and enjoyed our "Slack Key Dinner" at the Sea House before the show. On March 11, the guest artist was Kawika Kahiapo but we enjoyed the whole ensemble, especially the stories told by the host, Peter deAquino (George was out of town). The guitar music was great, but I never knew the ukelele could produce such excellent sounds in the hands of a master! I also thoroughly enjoyed the hula dancing by Wainani Kealoha and bought her DVD to enjoy back home. Seating is on a first-come basis but we got excellent seats by sitting on the left side in the front, even though we were not near the head of the line. The venue is covered, so no fears about rain, and has restrooms on site. Plan to attend on a Wednesday night!

We did the show only and the artists were are very good and had a great sense of humour and storytelling. We had a couple of hula dances as well. A very enjoyable show.

George was not there the night we attended as he was on tour. We’ve heard him before on a tour and the musician , Led K., who played tonight was his equal! Peter who “ hosted”the show was a great musician and wonderful story teller. We had already been in Hawaii for almost a month and this was one of the highlights!

The title says it all. While the individual artists were excellent, the post intermission jam was outstanding. If fact it was the best part of the show. Many of those in attendance were repeat guests and were extremely friendly, sharing their prior experiences, as well providing sites to see.
