Tavanas blend of singer/songwriter, acoustic-blues-rock-roots music has been captivating audiences throughout the Hawaiian islands and east to the mainland where hes made two appearances at the high-profile musical showcase South by Southwest in Austin, Tx. (SXSW 2010 & 2011). Tavana is a multi-instrumentalist from Honolulu, HI who uses live drum & percussion to lay down a variety of grooves with his feet while simultaneously playing Guitar, Weissenborn Lap Steel, Ukulele or Banjo, and singing soulful, island-inspired Rock and Blues. His 4th album - Aloha Spirit - was a Na Hoku Hanohano Award Nominee for Best Contemporary Album of the Year in 2018. His version of Israel Iz Kamakawiwooles Hawaii 78 is Spellbinding! Tavana's unique performances have also garnered the attention of Eddie Vedder, beloved front-man for the legendary rock band Pearl Jam. Eddie invited Tavana to perform the Hana Hou for his 2-Night Sold-Out Solo Performance Concerts at The Hawaii Theater in July 2009. Tavana is coming to Gigs Place Maui for a limited engagement.

WHAT IS GIG'S PLACE?
Gig's Place is an intimate, community based entertainment venue, dedicated to live performances. We are neither a bar or restaurant but rather an outlet for great talent. A place for artists to perform, rehearse and network.
We often hear, Going to an event at Gigs Place is almost like having a party in your own living room. We've also been compared to the bygone clubs in Greenwich Village during the 50s and 60s beatnik and early folk rock scene. Imagine Alan Ginsberg Bob Dylan, Judy Collins,Pete Seeger Janis Joplin and others playing in one these clubs before they reached stardom. And, some people say our sound system is one of the best on island.
Our Musicians rehearsal studio located in the in back, is sound insulated and fully equipped. You can even record your work there.
If you like great music but hate the bar scene or large formal concert halls check out Gig's Place. To see whats happening every week go to our website: gigsplacemaui.com and click on the Events tab.
