2015 Us Upcountry

Upcountry Fair

The Hawaiian Serenaders returned for the fourth year to perform at the 35th Annual Upcountry Fair on Saturday 13 June 2015. The Serenaders performed first at 1 p.m. followed by the Maui Ukulele Pops Band at 2 p.m. We remained dressed in our Band informal attire appropriate for the paniolo (Hawaiian cowboy) setting which made it easy to stay on stage after our 45-minute set without changing costumes. We played 11 songs during the first set and then another 14 songs in the second set.

Songs in the order they were played: Kupa Landing, Sweet Someone, Fly Me to the Moon, Wahine Ilikea, Could I Have This Dance?, Under the Palm Tree, Blues in the Night, Uwehi Ami and Slide, Hawaiian War Chant, Lahaina, and Nanakuli.
