This shop is a hidden gem in Honolulu, with tons of rare & hard to find music from Hawaii and a great selection of used vinyl for diggers to browse. Roger is super friendly & helpful, he helped me pick out some unreal cassette tapes (and threw in one for free! 🤫) to play in my ride. I send locals & visitors alike to AGS-HNL, they’re doing a tremendous service for music lovers in the islands!
Was stoked to find out that AGS had a brick and mortar shop and stopped by here during my first visit to Hawaii. So much love for local community and history here. There's an eclectic selection of records, most notably from local Hawaii artists and music scenes as well as a nice selection of vinyl from Japan (folk, jazz, city pop, etc). Shop owner Roger was a pleasure to talk to and was very helpful. AGS is also a music label that releases contemporary artists and reissues local music from the past. Always great releases, and you can find them in=store. Can't wait to visit again!
Definitely my favorite record store here in Hawaii. I come here at least once a month to dig for gems and I always go home with something new since they are always well stocked. The store is very clean, organized, has a nice calming aesthetic, and most importantly cool music always being played here (actual records, no Spotify here lol). Owner Roger Bong and his crew are the best. They are always friendly and helpful here and always make me feel welcome. If you are a music lover, DJ, vinyl collector, or someone who is just curious about vinyl records and want to get into it, this is definitely the right place to be!
These excellent people have a diverse collection of used vinyl and an extensive array of new and old Hawaiian music on all formats, including cassette. They are all music junkies and make everyone feel like part of the club. They might even offer you a beer if you’re a good boy. God bless AGS!
One of my favorite record stores on island, especially for Japanese imported vinyl. Staff is extremely friendly and love to chat and help whenever you need it. Although the store itself is small, I'd definitely recommend checking it out – there's so many gems and the community is just amazing. Other nearby stores along the street are also some of my favorites on island.
