KAHULUI, MAUI (HawaiiNewsNow) - Roland Cazimero, the guitar playing half of the Brothers Cazimero, was hospitalized after falling ill during a performance on Maui Friday night.

A family member said Cazimero was diagnosed with walking pneumonia and had fluid removed from his lungs and was placed on a ventilator. He remained hospitalized Sunday at Maui Memorial Medical Center, where a family member said he was "doing good and getting rest."

Cazimero was performing with his brother, Robert, at their May Day concert in the Castle Theater at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center. Robert continued the performance after Roland was taken to the hospital for treatment.
