Don’t Miss This Special Event!

  • This is a can’t-miss event!
  • From its royal beginnings in 1836, the Royal Hawaiian Band has entertained audiences in Hawai‘i and around the world for 180 years.
  • Once known as the “King’s Band,” it was created by King Kamehameha III and became a staple of daily life by performing for state occasions, funerals, and marching in parades.
  • The band accompanied Hawaiian monarchs on frequent trips to the outer islands, bringing music to remote destinations of the kingdom, such as the leper colony of Kalaupapa on the island of Moloka‘i.
  • Hawaiian music is at the heart and soul of the Royal Hawaiian Band and at every concert audiences are treated to songs of the islands from the past to the present. The band breathes life into the music composed during the time of Hawai‘i’s monarchy, especially songs written by Na Lani ‘Eha, or the Royal Four, referring to Queen Lili‘uokalani, King Kalākaua, Princess Likelike, and Prince Leleiohoku.
  • Today, the Royal Hawaiian Band is an agency of the City and County of Honolulu and is the only full-time municipal band in the United States.
  • We invite you to join us for beautiful music from a true Hawaiian treasure.
The Royal Hawaiian Band Special Event will be held one day only, Saturday, May 20. 2023.
