Unfortunately mother nature turned for the worse and Kailua-Kona had a mean rain storm that forced the concert indoors to the Don the Beachcombers Mai Tai bar.

Due to the sound check earlier in the day being cancelled because of the weather, fans were able to get a first hand look at the band’s sound check inside of the place around 6:00 pm.

They were scheduled to take the stage at 7:30 but didn’t get on stage until about 8:30 which is pretty good considering the whole concert venue basically got moved.
