Dear valued patrons,
Your health and safety are of the utmost importance to us and during the outbreak of COVID-19 we’ve been working to ensure that your experience at any of our worldwide locations was safe and enjoyable while we remained open. Blue Note is always proud to be the venue that our patrons find comfort and happiness to visit during uncertain times.
Unfortunately for the health and safety of our patrons, and per Governor Ige’s direction, we must temporarily suspend operations at Blue Note Hawaii until April 20, 2020.
We will continue to monitor all news and updates and as soon as it is safe to reopen, we will return with incredible live music and our favorite artists every night.
For all of our ticket buyers who have purchased tickets to a show scheduled to take place between now and April 20th, please hold on to your tickets because they will be honored for the rescheduled date. We hope that you will continue to support the artists who play at Blue Note Hawaii.
We firmly believe that music is a universal language which connects us all. We are proud to be the venue that has provided so many beautiful memories to our patrons who share a love of live music. We thank you for continuing to support Blue Note Jazz Clubs and looking forward to enjoying live music with you again soon.
Wishing you good health and much Aloha,
Blue Note Hawaii

Kahulanui, meaing "the big dance," is an inspiration passed down three generations from grandfather Robert Kahulanui Naipo, to dad Rodgers L.L. Naipo Sr., to grandson and Kahulanui band leader, Lolena Naipo, Jr. Lolena remembers stories of his grandfather who was a member of the Royal Hawaiian Band during an era when horns and drums were a part of Hawaiian music.
“Throughout Hawai‘i in the 1920s and 1930s, one could find orchestras playing Hawaiian swing and the house would be jumping. Kahulanui borrowed from these influences and performs classic Hawaiian songs in a syncopated style making Hawaiian swing vibrant and alive in Hawai‘i today."
