Chai’s Island Bistro takes center stage for its state-of-the-art Pacific Rim cuisine, and under the direction of celebrity owner and chef Chai Chaowasaree, this tantalizing bistro exudes a casual elegance all its own. Yet here at Chai’s Island Bistro in Aloha Tower Marketplace, it’s more than meets the palate, as some of Hawaii’s best entertainers grab hold of the mic and woo the crowd with their amazing talents.

Best known for his work in the musical group Olomana, singer/songwriter Jerry Santos will serenade Chai’s patrons May 17, with a performance set to begin at 7 p.m. Santos has been a familiar presence in Hawaii’s music scene for almost four decades and has been a recipient of many awards, including best male vocalist, composition, and best traditional and contemporary Hawaiian music.

“I really enjoy the way Jerry performs, he tells stories about his music and his life. Then add Nalani as his hula dancer, and it makes an evening at Chai’s complete,” Chaowasaree says.
