    Default Oahu visit summary

    We made it back from two weeks Hawaii and it was an excellent trip. This was our sixth visit to Oahu, and our focus was definitely on sun, beach, and ocean, but I also had a chance to sneak in a bunch of ukulele-related activities.The musical highlights include:
    • met Uncle Rod and the lei ladies at Ala Moana;
    • attended four Kanikapila at da Racks;
    • attended six hula performances at the Kuhio mound;
    • attended performances by uke virtuosos Taimane Gardner and Kapono Wong;
    • attended KoAloha and Kanile'a factory tours;
    • went to several uke stores including the HMS Kaka'ako store (where apparently we met UU member Hawaii50), Ukulele Store on Waikiki Beach Walk, the two Ukulele PuaPua stores in the Sheratons, Ukulele House in the Hyatt Regency, and Goodguys Music & Sound; and
    • bought my very first "budget" laminate uke.

    Can't wait to go back, hopefully as soon as February or March.

    Great to have met you and your lovely wife in HNL!
    Thanks for coming by to meet and greet the lei-makers at the Makai!

    There's another ukulele event in Feb, Sunday the 16th at the Victoria Ward Park near
    Ala Moana. I think it's called 'Ukulele Picnic in Hawaii' and it's been going on for
    about or over a decade!

    keep uke'in',
