HAWAII – PACOM Community
Concerts, movies, nightclubs, dancing, karaoke and just about every entertainment you enjoyed on the mainland are available in Hawaii, though perhaps not always in the same quantities. There are several larger facilities for concerts, sporting events and other large-scale entertainment, and if you read the newspapers and local entertainment guides, you will find plenty to do in Hawaii.
Whatever your tastes, Hawaiian music comes highly recommended. You will hear elements of country, folk, rock, blues and more in the songs of local artists. But you may be surprised to learn that as often as not it is Hawaiian musicians who have influenced their mainland counterparts.
The most popular Hawaiian musicians are amazingly accessible. You can find “Hoku” (Hawaii’s Grammys) winners performing at everyday functions, small clubs and restaurants, and at concert venues throughout the islands constantly.
You should attend at least one luau while in Hawaii. There you will experience authentic Hawaiian food, song and dance, and some luaus even teach Hawaiian crafts.
The fine arts are also well-represented in Hawaii. Several excellent museums showcase classical and contemporary art as well as unique Hawaiian and Pacific art. The Honolulu Symphony is on par with any major symphony, and ballet, opera and art exhibits can be found by reading the major daily newspapers. In Hawaii, you can enjoy your favorite entertainment and recreation, and you will likely find some new favorites as well.
