Well-known musicians, including Les McCann, will have toes tapping and hands clapping when they gather early next month in Lahaina for the Maui Jazz & Blues Festival.
The fourth annual festival, set for the west Maui town that once was the center of the whaling industry, will run Sept. 4-7. The events will feature jazz, blues and Zydeco and some of the genres’ popular performers.
The main event on Sept. 6 runs from 5-9 p.m. oceanfront at the Royal Lahaina Resort. The lineup includes pianist and vocalist McCann, who has performed with a variety of musicians including Miles Davis, Michael Jackson, Grammy-nominated tenor sax player Javon Jackson and Hawaii’s own Zenshin Daiko drummers.
