062117: We’re at the Elk’s this Friday . . .


Aloha All,

Posting a quick one here . . .  you may notice we’re missing the previous week’s post. There was a problem and I had to restore from the week previous. Anyway, we’re back on line now . . .

We’ve been cleared to meet at the Elk’s this Friday! Mahalo to Brudda Mike, Joe and the Elk-ders for hosting us once again. I understand that a dinner will be available for purchase as well. We’ll be there from 7-10pm-ish, BYOGear (music stands, lights, etc.) and BYAloha! Dress and think cool thoughts as I hear we’re not quite out of the heat wave.

Saturday, we’ll be at the Sonoma Valley Woman’s Club. I understand that NASCAR will be in full swing so you may want to account for traffic delays. Usual runtime 2-4pm. Mahalo to the Sonoma Valley Wahine and Hula Mai for hosting us!

Maika’i to the Hokulea and crew for their legendary voyage. Here’s a link to KITV 4 in Honolulu . . . http://www.kitv.com/story/35689533/slideshow-hokuleas-homecoming

Ok, tired from weed whacking and mowing the front lawn/weed garden/dirt pile . . .

we move in circles,
infinite cycles of friends,
waves upon a shore . . .

See you Soon!

Aloha Nui Loa,


060817: Elua Kanikapila!

Aloha Ahi Ahi UFOhana,

It’s that time of the month again, Elua Kanikapila (2nd Kanikapila) of the month, which means we’re at the Elks this Friday. However, instead of the bar, we’ll be in the (weather permitting) Magnolia Terrace this time to support the following event…

Please be sure to RSVP (call or email at the above) if you’ll be joining us for dinner.

Speaking of Friday Nights, click below for photos of the Campbell Kanikapila . . .

Saturday Kanikapila will be at UFOHQ, 2-4pm, as usual, BYOB&S (Beverage and Snacks if you need). BYOMusicStands. Text me at 415-300-7804 if you need directions to the HQ.

By the way, as many of you are aware we’ll be performing at the County Fair on July 2,  2-2:45PM, same stage as last year. Please email me at kaleikoa@piko.ws if you will be attending. Tickets are limited so first come first serve . . . Mahalo Nui Loa to Gabriel, Marion, Charlie and the Staff at the Marin Cultural Center for allowing to participate once again! I’m thinking Retro/Tie Dye/Peter Max-ish/Nancy Sintra-ish/Summer of Love/Love Child/Hawaiian for attire?

Immaculate skies,
A crystal azure ocean,
Frail Cosmic marble.

ahhhh, a little lower, to the left . . . It’s a tough life, but someone has to do it . . .

Aloha A Hui Hou,

Ok, I think I’ve covered most of the major events. Whew! What a great line up! Please let me know if I’ve forgotten anything . . . As some of you may have noticed there was no mention of Hele On Ukulele! Event. Stay tuned for more, we have something in the works for the fall/winter!

On a final note . . . check out the plates on this ride!

Yeah, yeah, Ukulele is spelt wrong, but that was already taken! With A Ride like this I’d never be late for a Gig!

return to the light.

This Saturday we are at the Sonoma Valley Woman’s Club, but don’t forget Kanikapila will be from 3p – 5p instead. For those of you who want to get an early start, some great Hula and food consider attending the Luau event just before Kanikapila . . .

Azure morning sky,
Symphony of bird’s voices,
A feast on the lawn.
