It’s A Good Day, A Tribute to Miss Peggy Lee is a journey of discovery through the extraordinary musical legacy of Peggy Lee and the personal struggles of a woman whose voice captivated millions. The classic songs, intricate rhythms, and exquisite arrangements that defined her career are elegantly portrayed in this loving homage, created with seasoned jazz master Jon Weber. Experience her rise from a tragic childhood on the desolate plains of North Dakota to the elite company of legends, becoming one of the first and foremost successful female singer/songwriters in history.

Local artist and Nā Hōku nominee Keikilani Lindsey will open the show with a song. Lindsey almost lost his life in a car accident last year and will this will be his debut performance since his accident.
All proceeds from the event will benefit VASH Hawai‘i Island. VASH helps visitors who experience adversities such as crime victimization, medical emergencies, or the death of a loved one while visiting the island.
The 5th annual concert is $75 and include heavy pūpū and free self-parking. Tickets are available online.
