We were a bit wary of the concert, having heard Hawaiian guitar music (Don Ho style) much of our lives and long ago concluding it had little to recommend it. However, friends who had attended three of the concerts over the years urged us to...More
We spent a magical evening at the church listening to and being mesmerized by the slack key playing and storytelling. Truly a very special experience! I don’t understand how others gave this concert a negative review. It was exactly as advertised: music and story telling...More
During the 2 hours including a 15 intermission, 7 or 8 tunes were played no more than 15 minutes total. The music was beautiful and the brief accounting of the history of slack key was interesting. But it is mostly an opportunity for Sandy to...More

Love, love, love Doug and Sandy. What a wonderful couple that give such a charming, entertaining performance. Sandy's storytelling skills are amazing and Doug's playing is unequalled. An afternoon concert with them is like a day at the spa - you leave feeling so relaxed...More

As we drove home from their concert in Hanalei last evening, we realized we first experienced Doug & Sandy's warm Aloha spirit over 16 years ago.

The “performance” is half story telling / history and half playing music. If you want to learn more about the history of slack key guitar and hear beautiful music, you will probably like this performance. The guitar playing is very joyful.
Sandy and Doug provided a very nice concert that included the history of slack key guitar music as well as other interesting stories of the area. The music was unique and very relaxing-we brought some CD's back with us to remember the experience.
