Hawai'i Pacific University is pleased and honored to welcome the Royal Hawaiian Band for a special performance on Thursday, Sept. 24, 11 a.m.-noon, Aloha Tower Marketplace, Waterfront Stage, Pier 9.

The Royal Hawaiian Band comes back to Aloha Tower, celebrating a time when old Hawai'i welcomed its visitors who arrived from afar on cruise ships. The band played in all its splendor, and there were hula dancers and lei stands in abundance while the youth of Hawai'i dove into Honolulu Harbor to greet the ship's passengers.

Founded in 1836 by King Kamehameha III and originally known as the "King's Band," the Royal Hawaiian Band has a rich history of sharing its music with people throughout Hawai'i, across the continental U.S., and around the world. The band's mission is to promote and foster music, to preserve the Hawaiian musical culture, inspire young musicians, and enrich the lives of the people of Hawai'i.
