Returns Every Week

Ukulele Mix Plate

“I return every week just to hear you sing,” said Alan from Kihei by way of New York.

Mele found out there is a group of people that come to Maui every year during the winter and are “in the know” about free entertainment in south Maui. Ukulele Mix Plate offered free ukulele entertainment and workshops at the Shops at Wailea from January – April 2015 with the first five of eight total events including a Youth Showcase. We liked to come early to the shows so that we had time to talk to people after setting up.
