Summer Of Jam: Live Music Every Saturday On Kauai

July is live music month on Kauai -- and ground zero for the festivities is the Shutter's Lounge at the Hilton Kauai Beach Resort. Every Saturday during the month of July, the "Kauai Music Festival" hosts free weekly performances from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., all of which builds to the swinging main event on August 1 -- 4.

Following the free hour-long performances by both resident and visiting musicians every Saturday, guests are invited to linger around and listen to live jazz from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m., also in the Shutter's Lounge. The house band, Jazzology, is a trio made up of Michael Ruff, Trey Thompson and Ron Margolis. Every Saturday, jazz enthusiasts can expect guest musicians and impromptu jam sessions, which makes the Hilton Kauai's most exciting weekly spot for live jazz. There is no fee or admission charge for any of the Saturday night music.

On August 1st and 2nd, the Kauai Music Festival hosts various singers and songwriters from across the country, which hold music-performance workshops, seminars, competitions and panel discussions. Past attendees rave about the amount of one-on-one interaction with some of the nation's most successful producers and songwriters in the music industry.

Following the 2-day workshops, two gala concerts are held, one each on August 3rd and 4th, which are open to the general public. The two concerts will be held at the Hilton Kauai Beach Resort.
