“Jazz Maui is happy to showcase these talented individuals and welcome them home for the holidays,” said Bryant Neal, executive director of the nonprofit organization.
“Jake grew up taking advantage of all of the performers and teachers that Jazz Maui brought to Maui as part of its music education program. Tanama performed at Jazz Maui’s East Meets West Festival in 2017. Afterward, both she and Jake were invited to perform at the Blue Note Hawaii with Mike Lewis.”
He added that there is only seating for 60 at Maui Coffee Attic, so tickets are limited.
Proceeds benefit Jazz Maui’s music education programs.
