Published March 22, 2024

A host of homegrown artists are joining the roster for the esteemed '98 Degrees & Friends: Restoration of the Heart of Maui Fundraising Concert.' The event is scheduled for Saturday, April 6, 2024, and will start at 6 p.m. at Honolulu's Neal S. Blaisdell Arena. Merging local sounds with the star power of 98 Degrees, this concert stands to serve both as a celebration of music and a charitable effort for the Maui community.

Local Musicians Rally for Maui

The newly announced lineup includes Nā Hōkū Hanohano Award winner Crossing Rain, acclaimed solo artist Tavana, Kalenaku, and the Camarillo Brothers, who bring their own unique blends of music to enrich the evening's offerings. Alongside these artists will be the night's main attraction, 98 Degrees, who are recognized worldwide for their vocal harmonies and hits.

Tickets for this noble cause remain up for grabs and can be secured via the Blaisdell Box Office, Ticketmaster.com, or directly through the 98 Degrees website. The event is being helmed by SparkLEE Productions and Cornerstone Multimedia, ensuring a production of high quality.

Spotlight on Helping Hands

Tavana, known for his impressive one-man-band act, and Kalenaku, who fans recognize from the group Kapena, add local flavor to the concert. The Camarillo Brothers, Kalaʻe and Kamaka, from Maui, contribute their respected musical talents. Funds raised from the concert will go directly towards the revitalization of Maui—including restoring landmarks and supporting local businesses affected by the devastating fires.

Nick Lachey of 98 Degrees, now a Hawaiʻi resident, emphasizes the group's commitment to aiding in Maui's healing process. The band's donation of their performance is a part of this commitment as they prepare to dazzle the audience with both classic hits and new tunes from their forthcoming album 'Full Circle.'

A United Front for Maui

This concert unites local musicians and the internationally recognized 98 Degrees in a collaborative show of support for Maui. The production relies on the cooperation of several organizations, including SparkLEE Productions and Cornerstone Multimedia, as well as sponsors like the First Insurance Company of Hawaiʻi. iHeart Media and the Outrigger Reef Hotel are also contributing as a media and in-kind sponsor respectively.
