Mulligan's On The Blue and Gaia Best will present an evening of music in honor of singer-songwriter Joni Mitchell on Saturday, Oct. 19, beginning at 7:30 p.m.
In gratitude for creating more than four decades of heartfelt music, including 26 albums of original music and more than 250 songs, event organizers invite Maui to celebrate Mitchell with a fun- and music-filled evening.
A portion of the proceeds from the event's live art auction will be donated to Women Helping Women.

"This event is the first of its kind on Maui," said Best, producer of the event. "Based on advanced ticket sales to date, we expect a full house."
Best and Bill Fuller will perform Mitchell's music along with a host of other talented musicians on Maui, including Jamie Gallo, Louise Lambert, Gilbert Emata, Christy Birchard, Meaghen Owen, Apple Jensen and special surprise guests. Mitchell herself has been personally invited to this once-in-a-lifetime event on Maui.
"There will be lots of audience participation for the many Maui residents and visitors who want to walk down memory lane with the inspiring and personal music that touched all of our lives," said Best.
The evening incorporates a number of styles of music--from Mitchell's early folk days through her various musical transitions, including rock and roll and jazz.
"The evening will be a testament to a genius, an innovator, a painter, a poet--Joni encompassed it all," said Best. "She continues to bring men and women alike into tearful and joyful moments recalling her music and the role it played in their lives."
Advance tickets are $15 and available at Bounty Music in Kahului, Lahaina Music on the West Side and the new Awakening in Paradise bookstore in the Long's Shopping Center in Kihei.
