AllMusic Review by

Sounding more like the soundtrack to a night at a meat-market dance club than a Hawaiian beach party, Drew's Famous Maui Beach Party Music collection is misleadingly titled. The song selections are all standards from the "wedding DJ" canon ("Brick House," "Word Up," "Soul Man," plus more of the same), and they are performed admirably by in-house cover band the Hit Crew, but what any of them have to do with a Hawaiian beach (or Maui in particular) is beyond understanding. Any budget disco or dance compilation could do as good a job at "getting the party started" as this regurgitated hits collection and, as a bonus, would contain the original performances of these tunes rather than Xerox copies of them.
