Change of session time on 2nd and 4th Saturdays

Aloha all,
we just changed the session time on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays to 5 to 8 pm. Having a pretty good turn-out and, it seems, less tobacco smoking (which is illegal in the pub, but folks still do it). Come play/sing some tunes! Mike Griffin

Air Quality Update

Smoking has now been eliminated from the pub. Musician turnout is better than ever; come join us if you’re in town!

Session Update 2014

I’m moving out to Honolulu from the East Coast next month and I’m looking for a good session to become a regular member to. Does anyone know if this session is still active?

Session Canceled

Aloha, all.

I’m sorry to announce that this session has been canceled. We are currently looking for a new home and will announce as soon as something is found. In the meantime, keep playing, everyone!
