Maybe some of you who live in, or who will be on, Ohau can attend this Grand Opening of a second HMS location on November 18 and post some pictures.

From an email -

"...I wanted to let you know that we're now open at our second location on the island of Oahu. Along with our store on the North Shore in Haleiwa, we are now also in Kaka'ako, downtown Honolulu, at a really cool open air food/shopping center you can see here - https://saltatkakaako.com/ - Now open 7 days a week so come check us out! (Free Concert NOV 18)"

Thanks for the heads-up. I'll be going to Waikiki in December and will check it out.

We are going to Oahu in two days and HMS visit is on the list. Will there be any special event surrounding the opening?

Great to hear that they're opening one in town in Kaka'ako. I'll definitely try to stop by when I'm home for Christmas.

Congrats to Andrew and the team on the expansion.

The new HMS store is in the SALT shopping center in the HIP & COOL Kaka'ako area. I highly recommend going to the grand opening concert this coming Sunday, November 18th!

Congrats! Andrew and the HMS Ohana!

Sorry to miss the event on the 18th, but hope to visit this Summer, Lord Willing :)

I've been watching HMS videos of Corey playing really nice ukes, really nicely! :)

Corey has got to be a keeper!
A great guy and terrific ukulele player!

Thanks, guys for all you do for all of us!

Mahalo and Aloha!

Is it just a couple of blocks east of Kamaka Factory? Looks like an easy walk from cruise terminal. Lots easier than getting to North Shore though I love their store there.

Yes, it is pretty close to Kamaka and, yes, you can see a cruise ship about halfway through the video.

Because you asked so nicely...

Led thanks Chuck Moore, the builder of his ukulele, who is sitting in the audience. Then dedicates this song in memory of Cyril Pahinui who had passed away the day before. R.I.P. Uncle Cyril

It would seem that the party will continue. In the description of his Paula Fuga youtube post Andrew said, "Aloha! Oh btw, we'll be doing these concerts once a month on second Sundays at our new spot at Salt Kaka'ako. (Free to the public!)."

I seem to be keeping pace with him as the Craig Chee and Sarah Maisel set is now up: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3N6WCtfAsJQ But it doesn't include their opening number, so here's a warts and all version of East of the Sun.
