Led Maui Ukulele Pops Band

Maui Ukulele Pops Band

Rich and I led my students from both Advanced Ukulele and Ukulele Strumming 202 classes at Kaunoa Senior Center for our 10-minute slot during the Maui Ukulele Festival.

My Advanced Ukulele class has performed as the Maui Ukulele Pops Band 3 times at the Annual Maui Ukulele Festival in 2010, 2011, and 2015.

We have informal (as seen here) and formal attire to look spiffy to convey our confidence and pride as a group. There are other ukulele groups on Maui but none that look and sound like we do.
