While we realize this isn’t on Maui, we still think it’s worth a trip! The third annual Big Island Jazz & Blues Festival runs Thursday through Sunday. The eclectic mix of Grammy, Na Hoku Hanohano Award and Blues Music Award recipients at the festival includes Jason Marsalis, Skip Martin, Donald Harrison, Johnny Sansone and Benny Uyetake. The Mauna Kea Beach Hotel, Red Water Cafe, Shops at Mauna Lani and Big Island Toyota will hosts the various artists. $60-$85. For more information, visit bigislandjazzanbluesfestival.com.
