Aloha UFOhana,

Another busy, eventful, but fun week for the UFOhana. Starting with the Napa Elks 120th Anniversary Celebration. Images from that event below.

Mahalo Nui to Joe Tato and the Napa Lodge Elk-ders for inviting us and their generous donations to PIKOhana.

Mahalo to the UFOhana who attend and shared their Aloha at this event. The Napa Elks were very impressed and grateful for our attendance.

Btw, we introduced a new song today. Mammas Don’t Let You Keiki Grow up to be Paniolos. Click here to download the Haole PDF version.

Then a group of us were asked to play at Nellie Woodard’s Celebration of Life event. It was about 100 degrees in the Druid Hall in Nicasio. I was sweating like there was no tomorrow in that heat! But the UFOhana persevered for Nellie and Family. Mahalo to Pauline, Wally, and their Roadies for helping put the sound gear together. I could not have done it without you folks!

Nellie’s family was touched and very thankful. I told them Mahalo for allowing us to attend and share some of Nellie’s Mele and Hula.

Mahalo Fran for channeling Nellie in her signature Princess Pupule Hula.

Mahalo to Brudda Ken Emerson for his lighting his steel on fire for us and to Sandy for taking time before his Napa gig to give us the bottom! You guys are the best-est!
