My good buddy Dayan Kai and I have just put together a very special concert that I'd like to invite you to. Before I give you all the reasons why you should attend this unique event, let me share all the details and specifics with you...

It's on January 10th, 2020 @ 7PM at Gig's Place in Kihei, Maui.

The exact address is... 330 Ohukai Rd Unit 106, Kihei, HI 96753

VIP tickets are already sold out, but you can reserve the general admission seats for just $20 plus a small handling fee. The good news is, there are no bad seats in the house. 

Gig's Place is a very intimate setting similar to something like The Abbey Road Studios. So you can ensure, it'll be up close and personal.
