120314: Kanikapila at UFO HQ this Friday


Aloha All,
They are having a special fundraising event at the Campbell Hall this Saturday and need to prep it Friday night. As a result, we’ve moved the Kanikapila to UFO HQ this Friday.  Run time 7pm – the last one stops strumming. BYKaukau (some kind of main dish and/or a dessert), BYOGear (mainly music stands, and a folding chair, just in case) and of course BYOAloha to share with the ‘Ohana.

I sent an email out earlier this week about this. But if you didn’t get it or just don’t have the address and are interested in attending this Friday, send me an email at Kaleikoa@piko.ws .  Keep in mind that I don’t check emails after 4pm Friday as we’re usually prepping for the Kanikapila at that time.

In that same email I also mentioned that we’ve been invited by Tucker to perform with the Ukulele Jubilee at the Mill Valley 2014 Winterfest this Sunday, Dec. 7th. We’ll be performing at the Depot Plaza, 85 Throckmorton Ave. Mill Valley, CA. Performance time is 4:30pm (NOT 4:45 as listed on the their website) to 5:15pm. Please be there by 4:00pm for stage setup. In the email I sent around this week was a PDF of the Flight Manual for the event (for those of you who want to practice before the event).  I will bring printed and bound manuals to the event as well. Btw, don’t forget to bring ‘Wind Clips’ in case it starts to blow. Being it’s Mill Valley and parking is always at a premium, Car Pooling is highly recommend. Also, since we’ll be performing later in the day and it’s Mill Valley so you may want to dress warm and in layers. BYOGear, and remember the UFOhana’s 5th Rule, “Bring it so you won’t need it”. There will be a tented stage, but it is still out doors. Mahalo to Tucker for the invite and to both he and Rick for help with the songs for this event.

THEN . . . . . next Saturday, Dec. 13, we’ve been invited to perform at the Fairfax Pavilion for their Annual Winter Craft Fair. Performance times 12p – 1p, after which we pack up and power down to the Sleeping Lady for more Ukulele Jamming. Please be there no later than 11:30p for stage setup. We’ll probably use the same flight manual from the Mill Valley event . . .

Ok, here are the images from last week. Click the collages below for album access.

We’ll be gathering at the Elks this Friday. Usual start and end time of 7p – 10p. Not sure what’s on the menu just yet. But Joe Tato says it’ll probably be, “Anything but Turkey”. BYOGear and BYAloha of course. Mahalo once again to the Elks for Hosting us!
