Aloha Thursdays Premiers this Week - September 5. Don't miss it!

Get a jump on the weekend with Pat Enos, ukulele, and hula - great friends, great music, and great times.  

The weekly program is conducted by Pat “Palika” Enos.  Pat is a highly experienced emcee and group leader, a well-respected ukulele teacher, and a widely-known professional entertainer.  Pat is also Owner and President of Bill Tapia Ukuleles.

Everyone is invited.  Aloha Thursdays attendees include ukulele players and hula dancers of all abilities and of all ages (well-behaved kids are always welcomed).  

Pat will showcase a great variety of songs spanning many genres and many eras.  These are in addition to traditional Hawaiian-language mele (songs) and favorite hapa haole tunes.  You’re bound to find something to love among the many songs you’ll be playing.    

Ukulele strumming plus playing tips and tricks - and it's free!  

Interested in hula?  Come dance if you already know how or learn from a professional Kumu Hula (hula teacher).  Prior to the start of each Thursday’s ukulele event, students will meet for one hour in order to learn the enchanting art of hula.

  

Friends and family are always welcome - and that includes even the non-ukulele playing types.  Bring them along.  They’ll enjoy the music and the hula - and we might even manage to have them playing the ukulele by the time they leave.

Hungry or thirsty?  Our Elks hosts serve-up a wonderful assortment of food and drinks - generous servings at bargain prices.

So stop by Thursdays, beginning September 5, 2013.  You’ll quickly discover that we’re a warm, friendly, and welcoming group.  For more details, see our website: www.alohastrum.com.

    Tobias, I think Pat Enos said that the 4th Thursday each month would be devoted to slack key. So definitely bring your guitar that night. Can someone confirm if this is the plan?

      That being said, to anyone that wants to bring a guitar tuned to slack key and wants to come on stage to pa'ani a couple of nahenahe tunes with me, any Thursday night for that is a good night ! The ukesters will strum along to songs such as He'eia, Ka Loke O Maui, and Hi'ilawe. Auwe that would be nice.

      Thank you, Pat. We'll wait and see what happens.

    Even though it took almost 2 hours to get there, it was worth the drive for some fun ukulele play. Kind of torn between should I keep bringing my ukulele or should I bring my guitar to see if I can learn more slack key.

    Will you have a few extra Ukes for friends that do not own one but want to learn ??

    • Dean C.

      I can bring 1 extra tenor.

      September 4, 2013

    • Pat Palika E.

      Mahalo for your thoughtfulness, however, we will have 6 loaner ukes there. I think that will be enough for our first Thursday meeting. If not, I will announce that loaner ukes would be appreciated for future Aloha Thursdays. Again, mahalo and a hui hou.

      September 4, 2013

  • David W.

    Aloha Kate and Kevin. Yes! We will have a few extra ukuleles that you may borrow for the evening. Matter of fact, we'll be introducing an exciting new feature related to precisely to that in coming weeks. We will talk about it tomorrow. But for now, just know that that you won't go uke-less - unless, of course, there is an unanticipated run on our loaner stock. If we run out, well, you get the idea. Thanks for asking the question.

    September 4, 2013

  • Dean C.

    excited to play uke with you all!

    September 4, 2013

  • Pat Palika E.

    We start our first kanikapila Thursday, September 5th. Hula instruction prior to 6 pm has not yet been formalized. David and I will give notice when this part of our program is on board. In the mean time every Thursday kanikapila will feature hula, which I consider an integral part of Hawaiian music.

    Tune up and see you all this coming Thursday. A hui hou!
