Taj Mahal is a towering musical figure-a legend who transcended the blues not by leaving them behind, but by revealing their magnificent scope to the world. Over the years, Taj has also emerged as a mind-boggling, multifaceted player. In addition to the guitar, he has become proficient on about 20 different instruments-and counting.

Kool & the Gang have influenced the music of three generations.

Kool & the Gang has performed continuously for the past 43 years, longer than any R&B group in history. Their bulletproof funk and jazzy arrangements have also made them the most sampled band of all time.

Located in the former Society of Seven showroom inside Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort, Blue Note Hawaii will feature a year-round lineup of musical entertainment-from local talent to international sensations-for limited engagements.
