Royal Hawaiian Serenaders

The original four Royal Hawaiian Serenaders came together from their individual earlier successes.
Guitarist Alvin Kaleolani Isaacs had been the featured singer for Harry Owens & his Royal Hawaiian Hotel Orchestra before the War.
Basist Benny Kalama had been with the Don McDiarmid Orchestra.
Steel Guitarist Tommy Castro had played with Ray Kinney’s Orchestra.
George Kainapau was featured with both Ray Kinney’s & Lani McIntire’s Orchestras.
In 1947, the four blended their harmonies to take a gig at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel, and were appropriately named, “The Royal Hawaiian Serenaders”.
Today, we’ll celebrate their collective recorded legacy between 1947 and 1952.

35th Annual Territorial New Years Party

As the old year was ending in ancient times in Hawaii, Kahuna associated with certain he’eiau on the Western side of each inhabited Hawaiian island would watch for the appearance of “Na Huihui o Makali’i”, a star cluster that appears in the evening sky.
Once “Makali’i” was seen, the next new moon would begin the “Makahiki” season, a 4-month period when warfare was prohibited, and people celebrated with games and sports.
When Westerners arrived with their tradition of the New Year’s celebration, it coincided with the Hawaiians practice of Makahiki.
Thus, “Hau’oli Makahiki Hou” now says “Happy New Year!”
Today, we’ll spin some lyrical libations, as we share our 35th annual Territorial New Year’s Party.

35th annual Territorial Christmas Party

The words “Mele Kalikimaka” are a phonetic translation of “Merry Christmas” when Westerners first brought the custom of Christmas to Hawaii.
It coincided with the Hawaiian traditional observance of “Makahiki”.
