2019 Helping Out

Maui Ukulele Guild

Rich stayed on stage after the Maui Ukulele Pops Band show to help out by playing u-bass for the next group. Beverly Romias, also helped out by dancing hula for the group’s show. The group from Oahu was the last to perform as part of the entertainment lineup for the day.

The Hawaiian Serenaders had helped out earlier in the day by playing a set to fill in for another group who couldn’t make it.
