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.
