Kanikapila Island Strummers - Soulfish Grill - Richardson, TX










May 1st is May Day and May Day Is Lei Day In Hawaii, so our monthly celebration of Hawaiian music and culture will pay homage to that very special day, as we look forward to having fun times with our Kanikapila Ohana (family and friends)Hawaiian Style! We urge all Beginning, Intermediate, and Advanced Ukulele Players to come join the fun!

Kanikapila literally means“play music”and we’d like all you kanes and wahine to come join us, kick back, relax, be yourself and just take it easy. We’ll take a look at a few Hawaiian words and phrases and the Hawaiian alphabet, and sing a few Hawaiian songs!
The Aloha Spirit is alive and well in Texas!!!

    Have missed seeing everyone's smiling faces. I really do enjoy coming to play and being surrounded with such wonderful, kind friends. Unfortunately over the last six months I have had complications due to cancer, and once it was finally discovered, had surgery on April 8th. This will have me unable to do much driving for the next three months, since it was quite extensive surgery. Maybe this second time will be the charm, and end any further returns. I do look forward to seeing you all again when I am able to make the hour and forty-five minute trip there. Still on driving restrictions for the time being. Wishing everyone good health and happiness, never take a day for granted, make each one special. All the best, Aloha!

      Aloha, Clifford! We all hope you get better fast so that you can come back and join us for some music and fun. In the meantime, you take good care of yourself, my friend. Heal with Aloha and keep smiling. Mahalo for the very thoughtful and considerate message. Wishing you the best always!!!!!!
