Visitors of all ages will find something to marvel at here.

Margie Heart & Andrea Walls

For fans of jazz, August is going to be a good month. The first of two shows we’ll recommend will be at Java Jazz in Lahaina on August 8th. It will feature Margie Heart and Andrea Walls. Hosted by Manao Radio, this is an excellent opportunity for jazz fans or anyone curious about being exposed to the historical art form.

When: Monday, August 8th, 7 PM - 10 PM
Where: 3350 Lower Honoapiilani Road, Lahaina (Java Jazz)
More Info: Music2NITE Manao Radio

Yoshua Di Carpio & Andrea Walls

Not only is August a good month for jazz fans, it is a busy month for jazz musician Andrea Walls. Another August concert on the island will feature her and guitarist Yoshua Di Carpio. Once again held at Java Jazz in Lahaina, this is another chance to hear world-class music in a scenic setting.

When: Friday, August 19th, 7 PM - 10 PM
Where: 3350 Lower Honoapiilani Road, Lahaina (Java Jazz)
More Info: Music2NITE Manao Radio 

Silent Disco at Down the Hatch

Yet another musical event, but of a wildly different flavor, will be the silent disco at Down the Hatch. Down the Hatch is a seafood restaurant, but on this fateful night, it will be a crowd of dancers moving to their own personal tunes in silence. Hawaii is an unusual place, and silent discos are something you won’t experience every day. This is a stellar choice for travelers looking to try something new and intriguing.

When: Thursday, August 18th, 10 PM - 11:55 PM
Where: 658 Front St, Lahaina (Down the Hatch, Breakwall Shave Ice)
More Info: Silent Disco at Down the Hatch 

Bo Napoleon at Da Playground

If neither jazz nor silent discos strike your fancy, perhaps you’d like to see Bo Napoleon perform at Da Playground on Friday, August 5th. Bo Napoleon is a Hawaiian pop artist with some of the most joyful and uplifting music on any playlist anywhere - the perfect soundtrack for a summer vacation in Hawaii. 

When: Friday, August 5th, 8 PM - 1 AM
Where: 300 Maalaea Rd, Wailuku (Da Playground)
More Info: Da Playground Maui 

We hope you find this to be a helpful starting place for planning your August in Maui. As always, mahalo, and best wishes for your visit!
