Charley's is my kind of place - Willie Nelson


Take a step back in time and find true Aloha.

Charley's Restaurant and Saloon, established in 1969, is an award-winning, Maui Landmark.

Charley’s is a reflection of the culture of Maui, the essence of its foods, and the warm spirit of entertainment and Aloha.

We welcome you to a favorite community gathering place and celebrated destination spot.

Charley’s is located in Paia, Maui, Hawaii; a former sugar-plantation town that serves as the crossroads to the North Shore of Maui.  Known for its large waves and ideal conditions for surfing, windsurfing and kite-boarding, the North Shore of Maui is a water playground. The North Shore is also known for its rainforests, waterfalls and hiking.

Paia maintains its small-town, old Hawaii charm, and is now a bustling destination with restaurants, bars, shopping, coffee and gelato.

At Charley’s you never know who might be sitting next to you. It’s long been a favorite hang-out for surfers, adventurers, writers, hippies, rock stars, artists, business leaders, celebrities, and all types, looking to get away and find the ultimate in Maui hospitality.

Willie Nelson’s Favorite Spot on Maui! See him at work at Charley’s here!

With years of experience and a wide variety of musical influences under the belt of each member, song-writing and performing come naturally to the quartet. The core of the band and founding members are Pat Shinn, Dave Richards, Doug Ryan Moe and Gary Dean Smith. Four-part vocal harmonies, mastery of their instruments and great songs. This is the band you will want to see again and again. A familiar yet New sound.


New Darlins have two songs on the Rockband Video Game Network, so you can see them as cartoons and enjoy some great music at the same time. is coming soon, in th emeantime you can read more and hear original music at


New Darlins, formed organically,which means Doug started playing acoustic, mountain versions of our original tunes and we all started laughing. 


The concept of New Darlins is to simply deliver their unique sound in any venue from your living room to major concert halls. Instrumen...tation is simple. No gadgetry or tricks up these well-worn sleeves. Just 6 string guitars, 12 string guitars, slide guitars, acoustic bass, drums and percussion, good vocal harmonies, great songs and seemingly endless creativity.
