Kanikapila Island Strummers  – Ocean Buffet - Garland, TX 

October 8, 2013 · 7:00 PM
• Ocean Buffet

Our monthly celebration of Hawaiian music and culture celebrates its 25th month (the start of our third year of Kanikapila!) as we continue to pay homage to all things Hawaiian, and as we look forward to celebrating another two years of good times with our Kanikapila Ohana (Family - and friends) ~ Hawaiian Style! We urge all Beginning, Intermediate, and Advanced Ukulele Players to come join the fun!   There’s always a little something for everybody!!!  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!!!
Space is limited to 50 participants.

Date: Tuesday, October 8, 2013

Time: 7:00pm - 9:00pm

Location: Ocean Buffet

While there is no charge for this meetup, we ask your kokua (help) in patronizing the venue, as we have been allowed to use the room at no extra charge. The buffet is $10 (plus tax and tip), and includes buffet, sushi bar, and hibachi grill, but PLEASE feel free to order anything else on the menu, instead!!!! (Please note: we are charged per person, even those who don’t order off the menu). UPON YOUR ARRIVAL, PLEASE CHECK IN AT THE FRONT DESK, WHERE YOUR ORDER WILL BE TAKEN AND YOUR NAME ASSIGNED TO YOUR BILL.  THIS WILL FACILITATE MATTERS WHEN IT’S TIME TO PAY YOUR BILL. Our meetup will be in the room at the side of the restaurant. There is lots of parking!

In an effort to go over songs we rarely play, as well as those favorites we love playing, we’ll be using the July 9 revision of the Complete Kanikapila Songbook, which is already available in the FILES section of this website. All attendees will need to download those files and bring them to the meetup!  Mahalo and Aloha!!! Come join us and share the mana`o (meaning, idea) of the Ukulele through the eyes of all that is Hawaiian. Mahalo and Malama Pono!

Note: This event is hosted by Obed Donlin. Please do not hesitate to forward 
any questions, comments, or concerns you may have about this meetup.  Please contact him directly at [masked].

    Is there going to be a play list?

    • Obed D.

      No set play list this time, Kaipo. If you look over the past three Kanikapilas, you'll get a pretty good idea of songs we might be playing, but also trying to cover those selections seldom played, before we start learning more new selections.
