We start 2013 with our monthly celebration of Hawaiian music and culture with our Kanikapila Ohana and look forward to having fun times with family and friends, Hawaiian Style! All ukulele players are welcome to join us!


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.

    Oops! I just read that ukulele players are welcome to your meetup. Does that message exclude 'potential' ukulele players from attending? Please let me know if I should find a different place to learn about ukulele playing. Thanks. Genevieve

      Welcome Genevieve! You are in the right place, you are welcome at any of our meetups you do not have to play to attend. Quarterly we offer a free beginners workshop and will loan you a ukulele for this class. The next beginners workshop will be in may. Looking forward to meeting you.

    Mahalo to all of you. Since I recently learned of your monthly meeting, I am looking forward to visiting as an observer. I have no experience with ukulele and hope to be inspired. I had the privilege of attending the Saturday night performances at Lone Star Uke Fest and enjoyed every minute! Genevieve
