Pat is one of the most beloved entertainers, ukulele teachers, and ukulele group leaders in the U.S.. He’s well-known for his talent, his affable, easy-going manner, and his ability to make advancing on the ukulele fast and fun.
We meet at the Dana Point Yacht Club. It's is a spectacular setting for our weekly island get-together (yes, we really do meet on an actual island). The yacht club’s spacious banquet room has wrap-around windows so you’ll be surrounded by breathtaking views of Dana Point Harbor. Tables are arranged for your comfort and to afford great visibility. Songs are projected onto a large screen for fun and highly social head’s-up playing. And there’s plenty of room for you to spread-out your ukuleles, cases, and all that other stuff we like to drag along with us.
Hungry or thirsty? Chef Jonny, of the Dana Point Yacht Club, plans and prepares a wonderful, Aloha Strum Island Buffet each week. Two or three gourmet entrees - meat, fish, pasta - they change every week,. It always includes vegetables, salad, dessert and all of the fixings, and it’s always delicious. We try to publish the menu a few days days before each Wednesday's kaninkapila. There’s also a full bar plus coffee, soft drinks, and water. https://photos4.meetupstatic.com/photos/event/a/8/e/event_263702702.jpeg
It’s fun - it’s free - and it takes place in a great location. There’s plenty of safe, close-in, free parking in the Dana Point Yacht Club lot.
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.
So stop by every Wednesday and check us out. You’ll quickly discover that we’re a warm, friendly, and welcoming group.
