The Hawaiian Serenaders performed for 30-minutes as part of the Maui Hawaiian Steel Guitar Festival at Kaanapali Beach Hotel’s Sunday brunch entertainment and then stopped by to visit with Hawaii’s U.S. Senator Dan Akaka and his wife Millie as they enjoyed their brunch. We knew them years ago when we were on the Board of Directors of Hawaii State Society and played music in Washington D.C. Senator Akaka served from 1990 – 2013 and then moved home to Oahu. This was the last time we saw them as Senator died in April 2018.
