The steel guitar is an instrument that is indigenous to the Hawaiian islands, and as such, steel guitarists owe an enormous debt to the people and the land of Hawaii. Even as the story fades from the headlines, the aftermath of the wildfires continues to take its toll on the residents of Lahaina. Reconstruction and revival will be a lengthy process that will continue for Hawaiians long after the news cycle has moved on. To support these efforts,  we have chosen to donate the proceeds from this event to the Council for Native Hawaiian Advancement's Kāko'o Maui fund. 

The Kākoʻo Maui Fund is providing resources that can be deployed quickly and efficiently to support recovery efforts for Maui. CNHA is working in close collaboration with state and county leaders, nonprofit organizations, and community members to get an understanding of the quickly evolving priorities. Funding will support evolving needs, including shelter, food, financial assistance, and other services as identified by our partners doing critical work to support Maui.  For more information on this effort visit
