Recently, we had two guests alert us to a fantastic new opportunity to hear local music. The old Hualalai Theater in Kailua Town has been converted into the LEAD community center, which is hosting an ongoing Hawaiian music concert series, Live at the Lead.
The LEAD Center is easy to find, located right in the heart of Kailua-Kona off the Kuakini Highway. Concerts are every other Friday evening. To learn more about local artists and see the calendar of events, please check out: www.livehawaiianmusic.com.
Another source for finding out about local entertainment is the Big Island Weekly: www.bigislandweekly.com. Hawaii has some fantastic local musicians and we strongly recommend taking the opportunity to see some live music while here on vacation.
