Fourever Fab Show, the number one Trip Advisor ranked show in Honolulu, Hawaii will bring the Beatles’ music to Maui at the Maui Theater, starting April of 2016!
Fourever Fab, the Beatles Tribute Band, is composed of seasoned look and sound alike musicians who have been performing the timeless hits of the Beatles around the world for many years. Fourever Fab will be re-igniting your love for the lads who stole our hearts and changed the face of Rock’n Roll forever at the beautiful Maui Theater, the Home of Ulalena and Maui’s #1 ranked show on Trip Advisor, Burn’n Love, in Lahaina, Maui, in addition to their nightly shows in Waikiki, Oahu. The Maui Theater will seat 571 guests.
The Show starts with the famous ‘black and white’ period, performing the songs that 70 million Americans saw as they sat glued to their television set in 1964 watching “The Ed Sullivan Show”. Featuring songs like “All My Loving”, “Hard Days’ Night”, “Help”, “Twist and Shout”, to name just a few. The “Shea Stadium” period follows, recapturing the energy and excitement of the once in a lifetime concert performance with songs like “Daytripper”’, “Nowhere Man”, “Can’t Buy Me Love”, “Yesterday”, and many more that were likely never even heard over all the screams! We then progress into their most creative period of the Sergeant Peppers album. The stage is awash in color as the band dons the colorful Sgt. Peppers costumes and perform songs from this iconic period in music history. Finally, take a stroll down Abby Road as Fourever Fab performs some of the greatest songs from the later part of their career, “Get Back”, “Come Together”, “Hey Jude”, “Here Comes the Sun”, “let It Be”, and so many more.
In addition, as many of the Beatles fan may already know, George Harrison of the Beatles fell in love with Hawaii when he and John Lennon visited the islands back in 1964. Years later he purchased a property on the east side of Maui, in Nahiku, just off Hana Highway. The show will feature a very special tribute to the late George during the show. So come celebrate his beautiful music with Fourever Fab!

Welcome to our first installment of “Kākoʻo Local,” a monthly series that will highlight a selection of locally-owned businesses and organizations that live by and perpetuate the language*, culture and aloha spirit of Hawaiʻi. We encourage visitors and kamaʻāina alike to “kākoʻo local”, or support the people of Hawaiʻi whose mission, like ʻUlalena, is to celebrate and sustain our special islands’ culture. Skip the “made in (somewhere far far away from here)” souvenirs or gifts and opt for something that can truly be found nowhere else in the world. Take a genuine piece of Hawaiʻi home with you. Give the gift that can be proudly passed down to generations of your ʻohana. And take pride in this place that you live, or visit, and the memories that will last forever.
While attending University of Hawaii at Manoa and working through the Hawaiian language program, Kauaʻi born cousins Jess and Anu realized that there simply just wasn’t enough usage of the Hawaiian language (ōlelo Hawaiʻi) in the everyday lives of both island residents and visitors. This realization spawned a determination to inspire a world where ‘ōlelo Hawaiʻi is more evident in our day-to-day experiences. And hence, Sticks and Pōhaku was born and is now producing uber-trendy accessories that not only look great, but provide you a much needed daily dose of inspiration… Hawaiian style!
What is behind the name Sticks and Pohaku? Our company name, Sticks and Pōhaku, is a fusion of English and Hawaiian that makes reference to the saying, “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.” The name represents Hawaiian language being used as our “sticks and stones.”
Why/how did Sticks and Pōhaku come about? Sticks and Pōhaku originated from our passion for art and all things Hawaiian. Combining the two seemed only natural. Thus, our products were created to not only be aesthetically pleasing, but to promote the Hawaiian language and culture as well.
What kind of thought process goes behind each new piece? Our products are a fusion of our kuaʻāina roots originating on Kauaʻi and our urban lifestyles in the heart of Honolulu. Some are focused on Hawaiian proverbs (ʻōlelo noʻeau) and other products focus more on daily usage of the language.
What do you offer that is unique/different? We aspire to inspire a world where ‘ōlelo Hawaiʻi is evident in our daily experiences. Whether it be in your home, at your office, or with you on a night out on the town, Sticks and Pōhaku hopes to provide a daily dose of ‘ōlelo Hawai’i.
Anything new/exciting you are working on? We are currently working on a new line of products that will be released throughout 2015, so stay tuned!
Where do you see Sticks and Pōhaku in 5 years? All that we do at Sticks and Pōhaku is because of our passion for language, culture, and art. We hope to be able to extend our reach and promote the Hawaiian language farther each and every year!
