Paddler’s Inn hosted a birthday bash celebration Saturday night, attracting a throng of young and old. The Maui band Off Tomorrow provided music entertainment, pulling people to the dance floor amid the glow of colorful disco lights. The band consists of members John Akapo, Daniel Hunkin, Tavita Suani, Fa'amau Liu, Luteru Te'o, and Duke Elisaia, all originally from American Samoa. A raffle fundraiser for the halau hula Ka Pa Hula ‘O Hina ‘O Ka Po La`ila`i kept people on their toes as they waited to hear their names drawn for prizes.
The bash was organized to celebrate people whose birthdays fall in the month of August, and was the first of its kind.
