Maui Steel Guitar Festival

Saturday Lobby Kanikapila

An impromptu kanikapila broke out in the hotel's lobby as the outdoor performance venue was relocated to the hotel's indoor 'Ohana Room due to inclement weather. The almost two-hour jam session provided festival guests with a musical alternative as the sound equipment and steelradio.com's broadcast position were relocated indoors.
