110315: Kanikapila At Campbell Hall this Friday


Happy Day Light Savings All!

Hope you’re all having a great week so far. It’s the first Friday of the month which means we’ll be gathering at the Campbell Hall in Sausalito this Friday. Mahalo Nui to Reverend Chip, Linda Lee, and his congregation for hosting us once again. Play time from 6:30pm – 9:30pm. BYPotluck, BYOGear (chair’s will be provided) and, of course, BYAloha to share with everyone.

Mahalo Nui Loa to all of you that made “Come As You Aren’t Night” (aka Hollow Eves Night) such a special and fun night. The Great Pumpkin would have been proud of us. Click the collage below for an album of the amazing costumes and décor that night. Trying not to sound biased but I have to say that Nohea did a Fantastic job at decorating, did she not?


. . . and after a frightfully wonderful night singing the night away we did it again at San Rafael Joe’s on Saturday . . .

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?”
