Blue Note Entertainment Group has partnered with Outrigger Resorts to launch a new live music venue in Hawaii. The Blue Note's chain's Hawaii outlet will be located in the former Society of Seven showroom inside Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort and will feature both local talent and touring artists. As a part of the deal, the venue will undergo multi-million-dollar revitalization, which is expected to be completed in early 2016.
The announcement coincides with other recent Blue Note Entertainment Group initiatives, including expansion into China. Blue Note Entertainment Group has partnered with Winbright Culture and Media Co., Ltd. (a wholly owned subsidiary of Beijing Winbright Investment Co., Ltd.). Blue Note Beijing also will open in 2016, followed by two additional locations in Shanghai and Taipei within the next three years.
“With our experience launching venues nationally and internationally, and our strong, impactful partner in Outrigger, Blue Note looks forward to bringing world renowned musicians to Hawaii,” said Danny Bensusan, founder and CEO of Blue Note Entertainment Group. “We are deeply committed to Blue Note Hawaii’s success.” - Celebrity Access
