By Staff | Feb 21, 2013

Gene Argel will lead a six-piece jazz band at Saturday’s concert at the Royal Lahaina Resort.

KAANAPALI – Maui Blackie and Sara Gadarian will present a 2013 jazz event on Saturday, Feb. 23, from 7 to 10 p.m. in the Royal Lahaina Resort’s Alii Room.

The show will be an evening of “straight-ahead jazz” – the way it was at Blackie’s Bar in Lahaina from 1981-95.

The six-piece band will feature great Maui musicians Gene Argel (Hammond B3 organ/vocals), Sal Godinez (keyboards/vocals), Michael Buono (drums), Shiro Mori (guitar) and Doug White (bass), plus Eric Schneider from Chicago on saxophone. Enjoy a festive nightclub atmosphere with dancing and room for all to see and hear the band.

Tickets for this 21-and-older show are $20 in advance. Capacity is limited. Cocktails and an appetizer buffet will be available for purchase at the event.
