A growing who’s who of Hawaii entertainers will perform at a benefit for the family of late broadcaster and writer Ashton "Kimo Akane" Kaiuwailani.

Entertainers, radio and music industry figures and the general public are welcome at the event Friday, Jan. 17 at the Pomaikai Ballroom at Dole Cannery.

Confirmed entertainers so far include the Bros. Cazimero, Kalapana, Jake Shimabukuro, Jeff Rasmussen, Kupaoa, Maunalua, Ben Vegas & Maila Gibson, and the Gregg Hammer Band, though more are expected, according to co-organizer Wayne Maria.

Doors will open at 4 p.m. with the concert set to begin at 5 p.m. 

Tickets are $35 online or via charge-by-phone at 550-8457, and will be $45 at the door.

Kaiuwailani, lifelong broadcaster and author of MidWeek column "Kimo’s Vegas," died Dec. 30 after suffering apparent cardiac arrest earlier in the month.
