Luau Kalamaku

OK, so this is the third luau I've been to, and Mrs. Drang lived on Oahu for a couple of years, so she lost count.

Holy cow. 

We may never do another one.

Usually, they're a Vegas-style revue.   The ones I've seen, the host/emcee has been, well, slick.  Smarmy, even.  The show jumps around, sampling stuff from all over Polynesia.  One included a "sarong fashion show."

Luau Kalamaku tells the story of one family sailing from Tahiti to Hawai'i, landing on Kauai.  It is, indeed, a coherent story, told in the round, with costumes, and special effects.  Very well done.  Magnificent, in fact.

I'll keep trying to post video, but it ain't workin' for me today...

They did a kinda Cirque du Soleil type one at Kona (at Kaehou Sheraton Bay) that we went to a few years back, called Firenesia that was quite good and absent the Vegasity -, or maybe it's the NewVegas influence.
