Whether you enjoy contemporary Hawaiian music or standard guitar, you’re in for a treat this Christmas weekend. Brother Noland, considered the father of Jawaiian music, will perform at an intimate night of dinner and music at Turtle Bay Resort’s Pa’akai Restaurant on Saturday, Dec. 23, and tickets to this one-of-a-kind dinner and a show experience are still available.
Fluid in both standard and slack key guitar tunings, Brother Noland is often featured in slack key guitar festivals across the Islands. This dinner and performance at Pa’akai is part of Turtle Bay Resort’s Dinner & Slack Key Guitar Show series, featuring some of Hawaii’s most iconic slack key musicians.
Tickets for Bar, Premium and Super Premium seating are $85 to $105 and include the show and a three-course dinner (tax and gratuity included). Super Premier tickets also include one Mai Tai. The feast starts with a grilled mango and goat cheese salad, highlights an island catch of the day and braised short rib combination as the main course, and finishes with Waialua coffee cheesecake for dessert. Wine pairings are available for an additional $20.
Tickets are still available at Eventbrite or the Turtle Bay website. Hawaii residents can take advantage of a special kama‘aina discount ($10 off, must present ID at door). Seating is first come, first served. Plan to arrive by 5:45 p.m.; doors open at 5:30 p.m. and dinner starts at 6 p.m.
