Pineapple Wine

Happy New Year all and thank you for making this your one stop for Organic Island Music. So we have been very busy here, taking a trip to Las Vegas to watch Bruno Mars was a blast wrapping up 2018. Coming home New Years eve was perfect. I am back to work on Maui this whole week, but will head out to Los Angeles on the 23rd. I will be attending my first NAMM show. National Association of music merchants is what NAMM stands for. It’s like I get to be a kid and run thru the toy store for 4 days. Any way I am looking forward to going, please wish me luck as I will be searching for endorsements.

I am also very happy to say Bryan Funai’s New Year Party was fantastic. Mitch Kepa, Benny Uyetake, Brian Haia, Gilbert Emata, Nate Lopez all joined in on the Jam session.

Any way here’s what I know you love… Organic Island Music with Bruddah Nate Lopez 8 String Guitar player from Santa Rosa California. He plays gigs here from time to time and I always love jamming out with him. I hope you like this version of Pineapple wine.

The Pour House (Kapalua)

So my first night was on Tuesday of this week just the other day. Traffic to the west side was terrible to say the least but a promise of diversion is on the 23rd. Any way I really wanna tell you about this spot up in Kapalua right next to Sansei the sushi bar The Pour House. It's a wine bar with ono pups or appetizers and entree meals. I start off by setting up on the Lanai right off the parking lot with a spectacular view of the Kapalua Bay course as the sun starts to set. only a couple of girls sipping wine enjoying the cool Kapalua air. I hear a voice say ho bruddah got you on Tuesday's ah? I turn around and see Jon Cioci "good friend" all smiles. I find out he just started the same night as me so I felt truly blessed. Charmaine the waitress for the evening was having a great night. with only a few couples out side enjoying their meals and a few people just stopping by to grab a quick drink. I noticed that this venue is great for the Live  Music Lover! So intimate with outside tables and dinning where its like we sitting on the front porch enjoying wine, story and music.   Remember them days we used to have to find a yard, beach or garage to play and enjoy live music. well Maui I think this might be a good fit. check out showtimes by clicking the tab above.

DOWN THE HATCH (LAHAINA) Quick review

DTH THURSDAY CLEAN.png

AWESOME First show at Down The Hatch in Lahaina.

If you don't know, you NEED to know. This is the place to eat fish. Located at the Wharf Cinema Center. Now this is a place growing up in Lahaina was a cool hang out across the street from the Banyan Tree. Payed Parking in the rear, lot's of little shops and restaurants and this is one need to go spot. Order up at the kitchen counter, grab your number and they bring you your food in spectacular time.  Bruddah Dave is the Bartender that I happen to work with Sunday night's at Duke's Beach House. Super cool bar that's been there forever three television sets in the background with sports playing, really cool spot to stop and grab a drink and go or stay and pick up a game. Today the opening day for NFL the excitement was in the air for sure.

Back of my eye Johnny from Kahana Fish & Game was working the grill this morning. Caleb running the front of house who I have had the pleasure of working with at the Westin K.O.R with, I already felt at home.

First thing i notice is the Food looks incredible. Breakfast was still being served and the Eggs Benedict looks like the first thing I would go for. Second would be this waffle slider looking dish with a stick of rosemary on the top. Just from first glimpse the food coming out of the kitchen looks like that from a world class restaurant, very smooth presentation. 

Lot's of people popping in and out listening to music, walking the mall, working the shops, eating, drinking and enjoying a beautiful Maui day. Looks like you can still get a table to sit and take it all in.

When you come to Maui DO NOT pass this one up & please come down when I'm there keep me company. Needless to say impressive spot on the west side.
