Royal Hawaiian Band Performance
8:45 a.m. to 10 a.m., Pearl Harbor Visitor Center Lanai

Enjoy a wonderful live band performance at the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center Lanai, playing a variety of patriotic and stirring melodies.

The Royal Hawaiian Band, established by King Kamehameha III in 1836, is a symbol of Hawaii’s rich monarchical past and its adaptive musical history. The Band also represents the spirit and conscience of a grand and festive age in Hawaii, when free open concerts resounded through the City of Honolulu and parades marched down the streets.

Today the band has changed but its eternal purpose remains. It is a department of the City and County of Honolulu, and still serves the community in the same way it functioned during the monarchical times.

Hawaii Remembers - Block Party

Hosted by the Tomlinson Family and Home of the Brave Brewseum, join us on a sentimental journey through time and embrace the very sights and sounds of an era that changed the course of history forever. Remember, honor and salute America’s heroes at a nostalgic evening in historic Kakaako.

"When the U.S. Pacific Fleet was based in Pearl Harbor in 1941 sailors and Marines enjoyed the tranquility of the Hawaiian Islands along with their counterparts – the Coast Guardsmen, soldiers and airman of the United States Army. A favored pastime for many was to relax with a cold beer in a downtown bar in Honolulu or at the beer garden at the naval base at Pearl. Photos were often taken of these occasions of friendship and relaxation. In that spirit, some of the good times are remembered by those who survived and, in doing so, recall and honor those who were lost on December 7th."
