122717: Hauoli Maka Hiki Hou Night at the UFOHQ!


Aloha everyone,

Hang in there everyone, we’re almost through the Holidays. One more night and afternoon of festivities at the UFOHQ this Friday and Saturday and we’re good for the year!

Friday is our New Year’s Eve of the Eve of the Eve (?) party. So we’re thinking how about a Black and White “Hawaiian Style” Dress up Theme? Hmmm, I wonder if they make Tuxedo Aloha Shirts?

Friday is at the UFOHQ at our usual run time of 7p-10p. Fancy Kind Potluck (though it’s always been pretty fancy with this group), BYOMusicStands, and BMAloha (BringMoreAloha). Btw, if you want to reserve a chair just text me at 415-300-7804, please be sure to include your First and Last Name in the text, just so I don’t make a mistake with your Name Placard. Please gives is us time to setup, and avoid showing up earlier than 6:45 pm. It makes things a little more frantic with extra people around while I’m setting up. Mahalo.

We’ll have our usual Saturday Kanikapila, 2p -4p, BYOSnacks&Bev. Again RSVP if you want me to save a seat for you.

Here’s Friday’s Ugly Sweater and or Favorite PJs NIght. Mahalo to all that were such good sports and wore their fancy gear and setup(s). There were so many creative outfits that we may need to start a Contest!

Then there was Saturday’s Kanikapila, not as crazy but just as spirited.

Btw, for those of you interested in performing at the California Academy of Sciences, January 1st. We have two sets 12pm and 2pm. We’ll be performing from our GIG BOOK so please bring that, your music stands and Ukulele. Please email me ASAP at Kaleikoa@piko.ws or text me at 415-300-7804. I misplaced my list and they are asking for a roster this year. Space is limited and I need a list by Friday.  So first come first strum…

Heartbeats, songs, and strums,
Hula carving graceful lines,
Time marked in laughter.

Mahalo Nui Loa Ka Kou!

121817: Ugly Christmas Sweater & Or Favorite Pajama Night @ UFOHQ this Friday!


Aloha Ahi Ahi All,

It’s that time of the year where you can dust off or maybe vacuum off that Sweater only Christmas Fans could love. If you don’t happen to have one, maybe you have a favorite warm and comfy Christmas Jammy that you can wear to UFOHQ’s ANNUAL UCS and or FPJN! I’m sure you know what the acronyms stand for . . .

We’ll be congregating at the UFOHQ. Our run time is 7p-10p, BYPotLuck (healthy comfort food, or whatevers . . ), BYMusicStands, BYHS&A (Holiday Spirit and that A-word thing . . . again). We encourage you to bring your family and friends on this special joyous night.

This Saturday we’ll be meeting once again at the UFOHQ at our usual time, 2p-4p and you’re welcome to wear your UCS and or FPJ as well. Feel free to bring Snacks or Beverages if you’re up to it . . .

Last week we had Bill join us as Bass Commander. Mahalo Bill for lending us a hand! Click below for album access.

On a serious note . . . let’s all send some healing thoughts and our Aloha to Ralph, Lynnette’s Mom,  Toni, Katherine and Lopaka. Who are recovering from health issues, we hope you all feel better soon. . . Malama Pono.

Whispers on the winds,
Ancient songs carried on high,
Recalling worlds past . . .

Mahalo to the Elks for inviting us to come and share in all the Christmas Aloha! What a treat to have Aunty Ku’uipo share in the joy as well. Mahalo Dena to share Aunty with us.

Dancing with an ageless grace,
Moments frozen in . . . .

Malama Pono All!
