KMS Mission: To support the Kauai music community.
Kauai Music Scene was created to:
- Provide an up to date and completely interactive live music calendar for Kauai.
- Provide a community where dialogue and the sharing of information will support a growing and evolving music scene on the island of Kauai.
- Connect musicians with other musicians around the island.
- Connect musicians with Venues where they can play here on Kauai.
- Connect an audience with the music they love.
Kristine Young – Owner/Operator
I have called Kauai home for over 30 years now. Growing up here, then moving into my teens, then adulthood I've watched Kauai grow in so many ways. I love this island and the people that share it with me. I also love music. And although one of our top resources is entertainment, there was no one place I could go to find out who was playing on Kauai each day. I created KauaiMusicScene.com
to do just that and much more. My background is sales and marketing, my heart is music. I've been a small business owner for over a decade. I wanted to do something for Kauai and something my whole heart was in. And something that's whole focus is to serve others. I look forward to watching our music scene on Kauai grow. I hope KauaiMusicScene.com
helps that happen.

Jay “Taper” Taylor – Auditorial Director
My nickname is Taper-Jay because in the 60's live music recordings were captured and archived on reel-to-reel tape recorders then later, cassette tapes. Fast-Forward 50+ years to the present day, digital age and hard-drive computers. The technology has evolved, but the passion, intensity, and magic of a band playing live for an ecstatic audience remains the same.
Live music, really good live music is something I feel deep down in my soul; it can transport me to places impossible to describe. I became a 'taper' and music archivist on Kaua'i for two simple reasons: to help musicians share their music with audiences and to make it possible for everyone to re-play and re-live those magical musical moments, that often happen only once.
Preserve the Moment - Capture it Live.
