Legendary signer/songwriter and guitar maker, Steve Grimes and his band, The Ono Grimes Band will be performing at Mulligans On The Blue in Kihie every 3rd Friday for the entire year of 2019.

Who is the Ono Grimes Band? Into a large pot, combine chicken cordon Blues, Funk, Latin, Rock, R&B, and a dash of Swing. Simmer for 30 years, add percussion and a pinch of sax, stir often. You end up with a gusty concoction called Ono Grimes. This versatile band is a musical stew of many different styles. From hot and spicy New Orleans funk to cool and tasty samba, this group explores the four corners of musical cuisine. 

The members of Ono Grimes hail from Maui, but their musical lineage runs deep and widespread. Their name is a spin on the Hawaiian phrase “ono grinds, meaning “good food”. 

Fronted by singer/songwriter Steve Grimes, the band serves up hors d’oeuvres of sultry blues, and a main dish of jazz infused blues. From the appetizer to dessert, the bill of fare is stocked with many originals and lots of danceable tunes. Grimes’ three albums of original songs feature the instrumental wizardry of Pat Simmons of the Doobie Brothers, Norton Buffalo of The Steve Miller Band, Jon Cleary and Hutch Hutchinson of Bonnie Raitt’s band, and Rick Vito of Fleetwood Mac. His songs have won national awards: Public Radio Express’ “Searchlight” national songwriting contest winner, New York City Song Circle, and New Orleans Song Festival honorable mentions.

Maui's Music Man: Steve Grimes makes music as a songwriter and – literally – as an instrument builder.
