Live music in Kauai

Where is the best source of concert/live music listings for Kauai? We will be there in April/May.

In a previous post, Kalapkidooley mentioned seeing Kealii Reichel (with a date of a few weeks back). Was this advertised on the KCC site or elsewhere? I haven't found any postings on their KCC website for the spring, when is the site updated?

We saw Kealii at the MACC (Maui) last February and the show was fantastic! I now have a collection of his cd's. We also went to Wailea Nights with Eric Gillam (?sp) and Willie K (on Maui) and really enjoyed ourselves (but found it a bit expensive).

We would love to attend some events on Kauai and would appreciate any info or links regarding upcoming concerts, etc.

vacation:

Please check with us around the time of your visit. We get a KAUAI ISLAND WEEKLY throwaway paper that Erica discovers the local concerts listed. As well as the Garden Island newspaper.

Most often they are at the KKC( Kauai Community College ), and they are remiss about posting their upcoming concerts much more than a month ahead of time.

And at The Veterans memorial auditorium in LIHUE. Tickets are available at several outlets, but usually also available at the door, as are tickets for KCC..

please do remind us as you near your visit time, and we should be able to pass on concert info.

Hula has really listed some great local entertainment places, so just with those, you should be well occupied with local artists.

THE PARTY IS ON !

Denny

Excellent! Thank you so much. I have bookmarked the site and will check for the newspaper and Kauai weekly at the airport or the first grocery store we hit. Can't wait....

I'm hoping to be able to catch some live music in May, particularly in Hanelei. However, I'll have my 19-year-old son with me. Do you think they'll let us come in if it's at a bar? (obviously he wouldn't order alcohol).

At The Happy Talk Lounge at Hanalei Bay Resort you can enjoy the music whatever age. They have tables you can sit at and have dinner or drinks. Probably just can't sit at the bar unless you are 21.
