102615:Kanikapila at UFOHQ this Friday


Aloha UFOhana,

We’ll be   congregating at UFOHQ this Friday, 10/30/15. In celebration of Halloween we are asking everyone to “Come As You Aren’t”. In other words come in costume . . . if you like. Here are a few sample of “Come As You Aren’t” from days past . . . just for inspiration. We’ll be meeting  7pm to 10pm. BYPotluck, BYOChair (just in case) and of course BYLotsOfAloha to share. Email me at kaleikoa@piko.ws if you need an address for UFO HQ.


This Saturday, 10/31/15, we’ll be jamming at San Rafael Joe’s on 4th Street. Usual time 2p – 4p. They have great lunches available in the main dining area so you may want to considering coming early to have lunch. Food and drinks are only available in the main dining area. Kanikapila will be held in the Banquet room. Invite your friends and family, I’m sure we’ll have some “Come as you Aren’t (s)” in attendance there as well . . . .

This past Friday we were invited to play at the Petaluma Elks Lodge, Mahalo to Wayne Wilson, their Exalter Ruler, for inviting us and for putting that great Pua’a Roast dinner! Hope to see you folks again soon. Mahalo to all the UFOhana members that participated in the event and made it such a happening. Below are images from this past Friday, click the collage below to view the online album. That’s Wayne below with his Parrot “Woody” . . .


The following Saturday we were off to Sonoma for another great Kanikapila at the Sonoma Valley Woman’s Club . . . click the collage below for album access. Mahalo nui to Hula Mai and the Sonoma Valley Woman’s Club for hosting us and for sharing the Aloha.


Graceful arcs swirling,
Glowing smiles & sparkling eyes,
Flowers of Hula.

Have a great week everyone!

Aloha A Hui Hou,
“…. and how long have you been waiting in line?”




Attention UFOhana!

We have been invited to Kanikapila at the Petaluma Elks this Friday! BYOGear, BYAloha, I believe a special Pork dinner will be available for purchase that night. Here’s a link to their lodge: https://goo.gl/maps/vLuvr6hFWhs   Runtime of 7pm to 10pm. Keep in mind that there’s always heavy traffic in the “Narrows” on the way so start making your way down a little early. Mahalo to the Petaluma Elks for Hosting us this Friday. Let’s all do our best to share our Aloha with the Peta-Elkers (?) . . . anyway, you know what I mean.

This Saturday is Kanikapila at the Sonoma Valley Woman’s Club: https://goo.gl/maps/Ro8YmbrEFVB2      We’ll be there 2pm – 4pm. We’re asking for a $5 donation at the door to help with operations cost. BYOGear, chair and refreshments available.

Man, is it just me,  or are we busy or what?

Mahalo nui loa to Leslie and Michael Freed of Bogie’s Café for hosting us last week. We had capacity crowd turn out that week. We even fed a young wayward Bioneer Couple who thought the restaurant was open. Boy were they surprised to see a bunch of Ukulele Ninjas waiting for them just inside the back door. Even more surprised when we fed them! What great fun and sharing of Aloha.

David and his staff was very appreciative.  Charlotte even got to teach a Great White how to Hula and to play a Uke! What talent, huh?  We even had Kathleen Jang, our very own Surfa’ Grrrrrl, show up and do a hula for us. Click below for more images . . .
