Singer John Rowles says he's looking forward to good memories and good music at tonight's tribute for the late Ben Tawhiti.

The Blue Smoke concert at the Hopetoun Alpha behind Auckland's Karangahape Road features Rowles, the latest Māori chart-topper Dennis Marsh, Hinewehi Mohi and other singers backed by a seven piece Showband.

Rowles says towards the end of his life the steel guitarist was trying to put together a show around the theme The way it was, so Blue Smoke will fit the bill.

He says Tawhiti was a great talent, a great teacher and a good friend to him throughout his career.

National Secondary Schools Kapa Haka
WILLIE JACKSON: When I see a school like Kings College performing at the National Secondary Schools Kapa Haka compeition, it gives me a good feeling because to me, that shows our Maori culture is now the norm, not the exception.
Tuku a great choice.
WILLIE JACKSON: Te Tai Tokerau Labour MP Kelvin Davis is playing a clever game, he has welcomed the proposed alliance between Hone Harawira’s Mana and the Maori Party and says “It will be the Maori Party’s last move in politics”. He says this though because he knows that trouble looms.
