Background.
The basis of our ukulele group has always been Hawaiian music and culture. 'The Spirit of Aloha' lives and is within each of us. We share it, with respect towards each other, through the music and camaraderie at our meetups.

We play Hawaiian, Beatles, Tin Pan Alley, oldies and some current songs too. All current members, please bring your new and old song booklets. Extra hard copies will be on hand for 'malihinis' (newcomers).

We meet once-a-month, on the first Tuesday of each month, at The Tiki Terrace - Hawaiian Restaurant & Tiki Bar in Des Plaines! This is REAL Hawaiian hospitality, atmosphere and food. The PERFECT venue for our Meetups and room to grow even more. Hawaiian attire is perfect here!
