Hawaiʻi based musical supergroup Brunch will headline Maui AIDS Foundation’s annual Mardi Gras Maui fundraiser on Saturday, Feb. 23, 2019.

The event will take place at the Waikapū Ballroom of the King Kamehameha Golf Club at 5:30 p.m.

The musical band Brunch features the dynamic stylings of Honolulu-based singer-songwriter Evan Khay, Oʻahu-based singer-songwriter Izik, “American Idol” season 11 alum DeAndre Brackensick, and one-half of the duo Simple Souls JRoQ.

Along with headliners Brunch, Maui-based acoustic group Swing Star will serenade guests during the event’s Kings Feast. Known for its European-style gypsy swing/jazz, Swing Star consists of Marcus Johnson on bass, Mike Guzalak on clarinet, Steve Elliott on guitar and Loren Tilley on guitar.

Tickets are on sale at and in person at Maui AIDS Foundation (1935 Main Street, Suite 101, Wailuku).


V.I.P. tickets for the event’s Kings Feast are $140 and include dinner, prime entertainment, silent auction, a photo booth and admission to the DJ after party featuring DJs Kurt and Playwfire Ono.


Tickets to the after party are available for $20 in advance at or in-person at Maui AIDS Foundation, otherwise they will be $30 at the door. This is a 21+ event.

Mardi Gras Maui benefits Maui AIDS Foundation, which provides services for individuals living with HIV/AIDS, along with outreach, screening, testing and education for local communities at risk for HIV and other sexually transmitted infections.
