Kahulanui at Gertrude’s Jazz Bar in Kona ~ July 28th!   Leave a comment

Kahulanui at Gertrude’s Jazz Bar in Kona ~ July 28th!

Na Hoku Award winning Kahulanui (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 Hawaii 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 Hawaii today.

“Youve never heard a beat quite like this, either in Hawaii or in Harlem. Kahulanui is a ferocious blast of swinging jazz. The sun may be hot, but the music is hotter”. – The Wall Street Journal July 2, 2015

JUST SOLD! 44-3173 KALANIAI RD Honokaa, HI   Leave a comment


Character….history….a storybook setting make this Kalopa property standout from the ordinary. This home incorporates into its core the Old Paauilo School, moved to this property from its original location many years ago. Additions over time have enlarged this shingle covered residence. Ocean views peak out form the trees. 

A large barn with bath and office was built later to accommodate the horses who once roamed these pastures. 


Attached to the barn is a two bay carport, adding parking spots to the other carport fronting the home. Your vision and some tender loving care can turn this into a true charmer. 

The property is located about a half mile below the entrance to Kalopa State Park. Ride your horse up to the park to take advantage of the park’s equestrian trails. Enjoy the quiet neighborhood where I’o fly. This nearly 5-acres extends from Kalaniai Road to Kalopa Gulch at its rear boundary. The house and barn sit through the gate at the rear portion of the lot. Road front paddocks create a buffer zone that hides the home and barn from the street. 


Do you see your horses and cows happily munching through the pastures? A homestead of your own in Kalopa!

If you are thinking of buying or selling a home please contact me!
