Legends of Mele concert to honor late Hawaii musicians

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Over the last year, Hawaii lost some legendary musicians.

Artists like Roland Cazimero, Palani Vaughan, Eddie Kamae, Mahi Beamer and more were all respected for careers in Hawaiian music that touched generations.

In an upcoming concert, their lives and work will be honored.

The 'Legends of Mele: The Tribute Series' is a free concert that will honor the lives of the iconic artists.

The concert is slated to be held at the Waikiki Shell on Wednesday Sept. 6. Gates open at 6 p.m. with the concert to follow at 6:30 p.m.

The event will be hosted by Hawaii News Now's Billy V.

Event organizers say seating is limited.

Donations and proceeds from the event will go to music scholarships for University of Hawaii students in the names of this year's honorees.
