Kauai Music Scene Opens its Web Doors

Kauai Music Scene is Kauai's new All Island Live Music Calendar and Community. Created by Kristine Young, this site was built for anyone who loves music. Kristine shares, "Kauai is filled with amazing musicians. Both new and seasoned. There was no complete music calendar for Kauai before KauaiMusicScene.com. Nothing is more frustrating than to find out that a great show happened LAST WEEKEND and you didn't know it was here!"
Tired of missing great shows and repeatedly discovering hidden music treasures on our Garden Island, Kristine decided to take action. "I met an amazing Fiddle Player in Poipu who had no idea there where bluegrass musicians in Kapaa he could jam with. I realized it wasn't just a problem the music hungry like myself faced. There was also a very serious lack of networking on Kauai. This island is small and the communities are even smaller. We tend to spend our time close to home." So part of Kristine's focus with KauaiMusicScene.com was to create an easily navigated Musicians Network within Kauai Music Scene's Framework.
"Kauai Music Scene's entire mission is to lift up and grow the music scene on Kauai." And its all free! “I truly wish I had any kind of musical talent! But I don’t. So this is my way of giving back. Contributing. I have so much admiration for the work and talent that goes into bringing music to our ears. And I know I’m not alone. Much of what you’ll find on KauaiMusicScene.com is a culmination of everyones thoughts and ideas around me. I started this project and just watched it grow and grow and grow! Its been an amazing ride. The best part is knowing the ride has just begun.”
