Home for the Holidays
CHRISTMAS CONCERT

Friday, December 20, 2019

Friday 12/20/19

Jazz Maui presents “Home for the Holidays”, a Christmas concert featuring Jake Thomas and Tanama Colibri, on Friday, December 20 at the Maui Coffee Attic, 59 Kanoa Street, Wailuku. Doors open at 6:30, show begins at 7pm. Tickets are $10 per person and are available online at mauicoffeeattic.com.

Both Jake Thomas and Tanama Colibri are Maui students currently studying at distant music conservatories: singer, songwriter and musician Tanama Coliri is home from the Edgard Varese Conservatory of Music in Paris; trumpeter and King Kekaulike graduate Jake Thomas is home from State University New York Purchase Conservatory of Music.

“Jazz Maui is happy to showcase these talented individuals and welcome them home for the holidays,” says 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.

Jazz Maui is a nonprofit organization that provides opportunities for participation in high quality jazz music education and performances. The “Home for the Holidays” Christmas Concert is supported by Hawaii Tourism Authority, County of Maui, Arts Education for Children Group, Makana Aloha Foundation and Maui Coffee Attic.

Jazz Maui presents brother duo Wolfchild, and Isabeau Waia’u Walker in concert on Saturday, December 28th at the Maui Coffee Attic, 59 Kanoa Street, Wailuku. Doors open at 6:30, show begins at 7pm. Tickets are $15 per person and are available online at mauicoffeeattic.com. Proceeds benefit Jazz Maui’s music education programs.

Wolfchild is a Seattle-based Indie Folk Rock music group. Their official music video “Runaways” received a favorable review by the Huffington Post and the band was featured recently in a segment about the Seattle music scene, which aired on the Travel Channel. The band has toured with artist Sawyer Fredericks, 2015 Spring Season winner of the popular television show “The Voice”. Gabriel Wolfchild made his national debut on the show that same season and he and Fredericks became friends. Their recent tour crisscrossed the US including stops at the Troubadour in Los Angeles, the Egg in Albany and The City Winery in Nashville.

Singer-songwriter and musician Isabeau Waia’u Walker has been described as an independent alternative folk rock chick. Now based in Portland, Oregon, she is a firm believer in the power of stories shared through song.

“Gabriel and Eli participated in summer music camps we produced early on when we brought in LA Music Academy,” says Bryant Neal, executive director of Jazz Maui. “Isabeau is from Wailuku. It’s great to have them back on Maui to perform. Both are accomplished and have been quite successful.”
