The Royal Hawaiian Band

The Royal Hawaiian Band has a long tradition of sharing Hawaii's music with the world. Once known as the “King’s Band,” this group of musicians was put together by King Kamehameha III and performed for state occasions, funerals and parades.

The Royal Hawaiian Band presents free concerts on the Iolani Palace Grounds most Fridays from noon-1pm. Learn more about the Royal Hawaiian Band and their performance schedule here:
