Many thanks to the Hilo Hawaiian Hotel  Castle Hotels and resorts for helping us out with their generosity.   

 

Nine years ago we started a Sunday afternoon Jazz fundraiser at a small restaurant in Hilo that has now grown into one of the most popular Jazz and Blues Festivals in Hawaii. For the past six years we’ve held our signature event, the “Annual East Hawaii Jazz and Blues Festival,” at the beautiful Nani Mau Gardens in Hilo.  This gala features a lavish pupu buffet, a dessert station, two free tickets for wine and/or beer tasting, no host bar and three stages of music featuring some of Hawaii’s finest jazz and blues musicians along with highly acclaimed artists from the mainland.  

 

This musical extravaganza draws enthusiastic
jazz and blues aficionados and performers from
all over the state and from the mainland!
