Soul Kitchen Maui will celebrate its 4th anniversary and raise funds for its first all-original music CD on Friday, July 29, at Mulligan’s On The Blue, from 7 to 9 p.m.

In addition to Soul Kitchen’s usual acoustic alchemy and musical mayhem, special guests will include guitar maestro Tom Conway, Joel Katz on Hawaiian steel guitar, Travis Rice on doumbek and congos, and Belly Dancer Raina, who will join in the fun for a night of great music, food, drink and birthday cake.

The evening will include door prize drawings, including a Willie K dinner show for two—a $140 value.

Soul Kitchen is currently in the studio recording a five-song CD of all-original music and asks for the public’s support to raise funds for production costs.

Suggested donation at the door is $10.


Soul Kitchen includes, Naor Nave, guitar and vocals; Sue S. Westcott, fiddle and violin; Michael Elam, keys and vocals; Bruce Boege, horns; Jimmy Coulter, cajon, bongos, drums, washboard, pots and pans; Marcus Johnson, bass; and Tempa Singer Nave, vocals, shaky things, cowbell and mischief…


Call (808) 874-1131 for reservations or visit Mulligan’s website.

Soul Kitchen is acoustic-infused musical alchemy, both blending and transcending the traditional genres of soul, blues, jazz, classic rock, Cajun zydeco and Middle Eastern influences. The soaring, soulful vocals of award-winning lead singer Tempa (Best Colorado Blues Band, Best Soul Album Award) and sweetly exotic rhythms of guitarist Naor (Israeli Idol musical finalist) transport listeners to new realms of feeling and musical enjoyment. Impeccable four-part harmonies and inspired interplay among the violins, saxophone, piano, upright bass, and Cuban “cajón” drum complete the sublime flavor—making this band an essential Maui experience for the musical senses!
