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.

John Wayne Bro

JOHN WAYNE BRO started out with a name. While chasing the dream in Hollywood, Taylor Bro and Sam Levi, future founders of JOHN WAYNE BRO, were working together on a film set discussing music - their true passion. They found common ground in influences ranging from Robert Johnson and Junior Kimbrough, to Dr. Dre's “The Chronic,” and the Parliament Funkadelic. The conversation eventually turned to "good band names." Upon hearing that future drummer Taylor Bro's father's real name was "John Wayne Bro," co-founder Sam Levi knew that they needed to start a band, that day, with that name.

The boys knew the band’s music had to be as gritty and as Americana as the JOHN WAYNE BRO name, and so they set out on their journey…

Renting a hot, crowded rehearsal space overlooking downtown Los Angeles to bang out their gritty style of American blues rock, they spent the next year crafting tunes written for the American working man and intent on bringing danger back to rock & roll.

The music of JOHN WAYNE BRO is a constant homage to the band members’ upbringings and musical influences, with lyrics covering topics of love and loss, hard living, Detroit assembly lines, and murdering bible salesmen. All the while, the underlying funk, hip-hop, and hard rock influences of JOHN WAYNE BRO’s songs always end up enticing stiletto-ed party girls to dance the night away during one of their live shows.

JOHN WAYNE BRO recorded their debut album completely DIY style - they built a studio in a garage in Long Beach, and mixed, recorded, and played each song as a 2-piece. The resulting full-length album, "Man of the People", was released March 15th, 2011. Following that album on April 3rd, 2012 John Wayne Bro will officially release there new EP "Velociraptor", which is a further a step into the direction which JOHN WAYNE BRO hopes to achieve.

As drummer, Taylor Bro, explains, "the album sounds as if Howlin’ Wolf, The Rolling Stones, The Black Keys and Tom Waits hopped into a Cadillac and drove 95mph into a head-on collision with MC5 and the Stooges behind the wheel of a Chevy Camaro."

JOHN WAYNE BRO is now hell bent on being internationally known and locally accepted. They have been playing live in LA, San Diego, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Long Beach, San Antonio, Austin, Dallas and San Francisco, winning over fans one at a time. JOHN WAYNE BRO is finding great success with their newly crafted live show that now includes Justin Charbonnet on guitar & Ryan Anderson on bass. The resulting sounds are truly full and give proper justice to the recorded efforts of "Man of the People" and the newly released EP "Velociraptor".
