August 13 will be a big day on Hawaii Island with the Third Annual Don the Beachcomber’s Mai Tai Festival at the Royal Kona Resort. One of the major attractions of this year’s fete will be a concert by Grammy and American Music Awards-nominated alternative rock band the Spin Doctors under the stars at the luau grounds.
We hear the Spin Doctors concert will perform some of their classic hits and new material. The intimate concert does have limited seating and is expected to sell out fast at $55 per person. Concert tickets may be purchased at www.groovetickets.com.
Prior to the Spin Doctors concert, the day-long Festival will feature a Beachbum Berry Mai Tai history seminar, “Battle of the BBQ” cook-off, Big Island Mai Tai Marketplace, Henry Kapono CD Release Pool Party featuring entertainment by Kapono’s popular band, and the event’s signature “Mix-Off” competition, which will pit 24 bartenders against one another, vying for $10,000 and coveted title for concocting the “World’s Best Mai Tai.”
With the exception of the Spin Doctors concert, the Mai Tai Festival events are free and open to the public. Script will be sold for food and beverage purchases.
