The Royal Hawaiian Band


You’ve no doubt heard them in concert at the Kapi’olani Park bandstand or at one of the 300 performances they offer each year. This is the story of Honolulu’s Royal Hawaiian Band, its director, its members and its music. As the nation’s only municipal band, the Royal Hawaiian Band has quite a legacy, dating back to its founding in 1836 by King Kamehameha III to the present day its leader, Bandmaster Clarke Bright. It’s quite the story about a band you’ll only find in Hawai’i!

Before Cosigning Your Children’s Loan…

As your child heads off to college or starts life as an independent young adult, he or she will likely face new financial responsibilities, such as a car purchase, rent or college tuition payments.

Your natural inclination may be to help them out and sign the dotted line, but before you do, make sure you’re clear on the terms of the loan and what it may mean for your finances.
