Crooners & Divas of the ‘50s

Crooners & Divas of the ‘50s

Come to Lihu‘e’s St. Michael and All Angels Church to listen to the best of two worlds — Kaua‘i’s talented singers and the awesome songs of the 1950s immortalized by Frank Sinatra, Pat Boone, Peggy Lee, Connie Francis and many more.

On Sunday, June 3, the one and only Ron Wiley will be the master of ceremonies for Crooners & Divas of the ‘50s, a fundraising event by the Mokihana Club, and under the musical direction of Dolly Kanekuni and musical accompaniment of Alan Van Zee.

“The best singers on Kaua‘i are giving their talents for a really special and fun program,” said Mokihana Club’s Helena Cooney, who is in charge of the program.

There will be a special prize for those wearing White Bucks. Cooney said there will be nothing to buy, except maybe water. This means there will be no silent auction, so leave your checkbooks at home. The best part is that your money for the tickets will be funneled straight back to future local talents — the Mokihana Music Scholarship Fund.

“We are making money for high school students for scholarships for music majors and minors in college,” Cooney said. “Some of the kids we have helped in the past have gone on to very prestigious music colleges and we hope to continue the scholarships with this first of its kind program.”

The show at St. Michael and All Angels Church starts at 4 p.m. Gold Circle tickets are selling for $40, while General Admission is $30.

There are many ways to get your tickets, just visit www.themokihanaclubg.org, email Cooney at helenacooney808@aol.com, call 822-1885, text 639-3635 or contact any Mokihana Club member.

Note from the editor: This event was originally scheduled for April 15, but was postponed to June 3 due to the heavy rains and flooding on April 14.
