I flew in to Kauai today and caught Aldrine and Aaron at Oasis on the Beach. All I can say is "Wow!" I have seen dozens of his videos, and we all know he is great, but in person he is simply amazing. If anyone has a chance to catch him live, DO IT!

one day I hope to play 1/100th a well as he does.

He's the reason I picked up the instrument. He was playing at the resort we were staying at back in 2009 and we just loved him. Imagine a guy singing and playing ukulele at a small tikki bar being the highlight of your 2 week trip in Hawaii! He's that good.

Awesome!!! I've seen him play a couple of times. Last year in Denver he blew the roof off the place. He gives 150% when he performs. And his tone!!! Lucky you.

Don't forget to take the kids to Lydgate beach. They'll have a blast chasing fish and playing in the water behind the sea wall.

And don't forget to get malasadas from the lady in front of K-Mart in Lihue. Kind of far from where you're staying, but you have to get one (or a dozen).

or just wait until you get to Oahu...Malasadas at Leonards. Bring a dozen to the guys at Koaloha and they'll give you a special tour! HAHA

Got to move this thread off of malasadas. Does Aldrine ever play on Oahu? I'll be over for a few weeks in June and July.

No love for malasadas?

As far as I know, he only plays "events" on Oahu like the Ukulele Picnic a few months back. He and Aaron play the Oasis and Rob's Goodtimes Grill regularly on Kauai, where they live.

You've convinced me I need to add Kauai to the agenda for my hawaii trip next year. Hope the rest of your vacation is just as fantastic!

You have no clue..it is all about the malasadas..have you ever tried one..I bet no..
Aldrine might be at the Ukulele Festival this year eating a malasada

you can not be trusted if you do not like the malasada..

CJ find the malasada lady on Kauai.....Lol

Au contraire - I love malasadas and am getting really hungry for one. It's only the fact that I can't get them in AZ that keeps me from them every day. When I go to Oahu, I stay on Kapahulu by the zoo, and convince myself that the 1.4 mile walk to Leonards burns off all the calories - a claim that would not hold up to much scrutiny.

I'll keep my eyes open for Aldrine in Oahu. Went to the uke festival 2 years ago and it was great, but will miss it this year.

Malasadas or Beignets?

Exactly what I was thinking. This year, I go directly from Oah'u to New Orleans, so I believe a scientific experiment is in order.

I thought I recognized you!!

:) I was there two years ago too. Jake was awesome with that little girl who wanted to play with him. Last year they had a tent set up for the performers to play extra numbers. It was amazing. Still haven't had the opportunity to see Kimo Hussey play live.

Some day.

I had Beignets in New Orleans recently... Didn't live up to the hype. Krispy Kreme is much better. I'll give Malasadas a try. I went to a place that was recommended due to strawberry cheesecake Malasadas on the Big Island, but they were closed... I'll be on the lookout for KMart lady when I head to Lihue.

Are you catching good weather? My phone says Poipu is nice today but you're on the other end. Have fun!!

CJ just go with the plain malasada first..powered sugar all over..good stuff!

no worry if you can't find some we go to Leonard's first thing in the morning..Stan lives 2 mins from there..maybe if he up to it..we drop off some Malasadas and coffee before we hit Ko'Aloha

take care bruddah..
