June 10. Upcountry Fair at Oskie Rice Park, Olinda.

Maui Ukulele Pops Band performed Sunday at 9:00 a.m. followed by the Maui Ukulele Jazz Trio and The Hawaiian Serenaders at 10:00 a.m. at the Annual Upcounty Fair at Oskie Rice Park. The Band took the audience on a musical journey of songs throughout the state, stopping at the islands of Hawaii, Oahu, Maui, Molokai, Kauai, and Niihau. The Serenaders set included 8 songs by the Jazz Trio followed by 6 Hawaiian songs with honorary member Hinano who had also played during the Band's set.

June 16. Kamehameha Day Ho'olaulea at Kamehameha Iki Park, Lahaina.

Maui Ukulele Pops Band performed Saturday at 2:00 p.m. at the festival following the annual Kamehameha Commemorative Pa'u Parade down Lahaina's Front Street. Through Kaunoa Senior Center, we were able to ride a bus all together to and from the festival at Kamehameha Iki Park in Lahaina. Six Band members (Andrea, Ellen, Janet, Kelcy, Linda, and Sandy) along with Rich and Mele performed our 45-minute set "Songs of the Islands." We took our audience on a musical tour as we went from Hawaii Island to the south up to Niihau Island in the north.

Initially we were going to walk and play our ukulele in the 1.3 mile parade before performing our show, but then changed our minds when the number of Band members available was too low. This year's theme of the Parade and Ho'olaulea was "Holomua Kamehameha," honoring the 125 years of Princess Bernice Pauahi Bishop's educational legacy. Mele is proud to be a beneficiary of the Princess's legacy, as a graduate of the school she founded, The Kamehameha Schools on Oahu.
