Rain or shine – we’re gonna have a lot of fun!

Wailuku First Friday in November

Wailuku’s November First Friday will energize Market Street from 6:00-9:00 p.m. on Friday, November 4th; the free event is open to all. Market Street closes at 5:30 p.m.; ample parking is available off Main Street in the Maui Medical Group parking lot and throughout Wailuku Town. Headliner “Owaila” will rock the Maui Thing stage starting at 6:30 p.m. From the Hawaiian word for “who,” Owaila plays “modern rock for the energetic music lover.” This hot new band is comprised of familiar local talents Chad Kaya, Kanoa Kukaua, Ryan Rego and Tavi Tenari, and rips with its own island flavor of progressive rock. And also on the Maui a Thing stage are the teenage sensation Visibly Shaken who will also rock you away!

At 6:00 p.m. Gene Argel and ‘ohana will perform in front of Café O Lei, and Maui Rumba will bring its lively rhythms to the Wailuku Banyan Tree Park. Also performing will be Andy Kaina & Old School, with live music at Chris Hart & Partners parking lot on Vineyard Street.  New to Wailuku First Friday, but not new to live music mixing is Ben Brandes the DJ DUB performing at Main Street Promenade by Gionatto’s Pizzeria.  Grab a pizza, under the stars and enjoy the mixing!
