According to Dr. Chuck Kelley, chairman of the board of Outrigger Enterprises Group, Outrigger believes in the importance of sharing the diverse elements of Hawaii’s history and culture with both visitors and kama`aina.

To make this vision a reality, Outrigger avidly supports local musicians, entertainers, dancers and artists who hone their craft locally, by giving them the opportunity to share their talents through sponsored events like the Ke Kani O Ke Kai concert series, or though cultural guest activities offered at a number of Outrigger properties across the state.

“As a local company founded in Hawaii, Outrigger is deeply dedicated to perpetuating the host culture, throughout our properties and within our surrounding communities,” said Kelley in a written release. “We are proud to sponsor the Ke Kani O Ke Kai concert series because it fits so perfectly with our company’s vision and values, and brings families and communities together, one song at a time.”

This summer, Ke Kani O Ke Kai will treat music lovers to a series of amazing live performances under the stars at the Waikiki Aquarium. The concerts kickes off on June 13 and run every other Thursday through August 8.
