We’re excited to introduce new musical guests Three to 5!
When the rhythm section of Soul Kitchen Maui joins forces with the guitar wizardry of Matt Del Olmo (Yum Yum Beast, Brown Chicken Brown Cow) and the organ styling of Matt Novotney, you get Three to 5, Maui’s most conscious instrumental funk ensemble. Drawing influences from classic funk and modern organ jazz, it’s a musical journey unlike anything else on Maui.
Fine wines are available from Maui Wine, Chambers & Chambers Wine Merchants, Johnson Brothers, Paradise Beverages, Inc. and Southern Glazer’s Wine and Spirits. Maui Brewing Company will offer local brews and their new Cola, Ginger Beer and Root Beer. This year we are also excited to have Kombucha from Valley Isle Kombucha.
