HONOLULU, HAWAI‘I — On Thursday, January 23, 2020, the GRAMMY® Museum will salute Hawai‘i’s GRAMMY® nominees with a special evening of performances by the nominees themselves: Amy Hanaiali‘i, Kathryn Schulmeister and Kimié Miner, plus GRAMMY® winner Kalani Pe‘a and Nā Hōkū Hanohano-award winners Bobby Moderow, Jr., Streetlight Cadence, Jeff Peterson and more.
Leading up to the 62nd Annual GRAMMY® Awards® on January 26, the day begins with a workshop where students can learn about Hawaiian music and instruments in a private session in the GRAMMY Museum’s Clive Davis Theater, followed by the concert at 7:30 p.m.
Tickets for the concert are $35 and can be purchased at honoluluboxoffice.com.
Mele Mei (Songs of May) is a monthlong Hawaii-wide celebration of local music, hula and culture with events at various hotels, venues and on the beach. Locals and visiting music lovers can listen to ukulele, steel guitar, traditional Hawaiian music, slack key, island reggae, and rock.
“Sharing music and culture is at the heart of our business – it’s what we call a Signature Experience,” said Sean Dee, chief marketing officer of Waikiki-based Outrigger Hospitality Group. “We delight in bringing Hawaii’s most gifted musical artists to the stage not only through our sponsorship of Mele Mei in L.A., but every night here at home from Blue Note Hawaii to Kani Ka Pila Grille.”
“Outrigger is privileged to partner with the GRAMMY® Museum, Hawai‘i Tourism Authority, TravelAge West, Delta Vacations, Duke’s Waikiki, Hawai‘i Academy of Recording Arts, O‘ahu Visitors Bureau, among many others, to bring this increasingly popular event to life,” Dee added.
