The first ukulele was created in Hawaii in the 19th century and was based on similar instruments that explorers brought to the islands. The light and beautiful sound of the ukulele is sure to evoke the sights, sounds, and smells of the ocean, even on a cloudy day. The 6th Annual Ukulele Jams Festival will take place on September 21 from 10 am until 5 pm. After the festival concludes, there will be a concert by Mr. Herb Ohta Jr. and Mr. John Yamasato from 6 until 8 pm. The home of the Ukulele Jams Festival is the Holy Family Parish Center, just 30 minutes from Menlo Park Inn. Throughout the festival, there will be live entertainment, hula demonstrations, ukulele and guitar workshops, and plenty of food vendors. Master of Ceremony Bruddah Derrick Demotta has worked hard to ensure that the 2019 Ukulele Jams Festival is the best one yet.
