I'll be moving to Citrus Heights (Sacramento) to be with my sweetheart. I've lived in Hawaii all my life and realize I'm in for somewhat of a culture shock. It's all good though, and I'm being very positive. I just found an L&L's down the road!! Awesome!!

I'll be there in May, and was wondering if anyone gets together in that area for a kanikapila of sorts. I would love to meet folks who love Hawaiian music and am looking forward to making new friends. I'm also new to Taropatch, but love it already. Mahalo everybody!

Well if you can drive to Vacaville, there is the famous "CowTown Kanikapila" once a month (on a Sunday, which helps a lot with the traffic situation). Should be less than a one hour drive depending on where you are in Sacramento. There are sometimes happenings in the other direction in the Grass Valley area. And... there is a Radio Station in Auburn or Grass Valley that does a Sunday morning Hawaiian Radio for 4 or 5 hours. If you can stand driving 2 to 2.5 hours there are a few more things happening monthly in the SF Bay Area. You can search here or Google all these things.

Sorry 'bout the Culture Shock. I moved from Tampa to Santa Monica and experienced plenty of culture shock (mostly crowding an noise), but your case is more extreme!!

Probably will not be too bad if you are Honolulu area resident, the Honolulu urban and sub-urban lifestyle is more like the mainland than any place in Hawaii that I have been (except for the weather, foiliage, language idioms, warm ocean, etc... better stop here) Although parts of Maui are kinda-like "Santa-Cruz-West" All this is My Opinion, of course.

Welcome to California, or my condolences (whichever you prefer).

To all you people of Sacramento please take note that a wonderful human being who just happens to be very talented is moving to California.If you have the opportunity to kanikapila with this man do not look a gift horse in the mouth and jump on it.You'll become a fan of the man & the musician as am I. I just had the pleasure of making his acquaintence a few months ago and frankly I'm bummed out that he's leaving Hawaii.Oh well my loss,your gain.For those of you who don't know..... "Up4surfing" is Mike Keale of the famous "Keale Ohana i.e. Moe & Walter etc etc!!

Eh Mike get choke Hawaiian clubs in Sac-Town from what I heard, hope you can hook up with some.Good luck with the move my braddah and I know they going love up there as much as we going miss you over here

Aloha

Braddah Duke, I had one mean feeling it was Mike Keale posting but I didn't say anything because I noticed he left his profile pretty much incognito and so I didn't want to blow his cover. So brah, mahalo to you for blowing his cover instead.

Braddah Mike, I don't think you need to be worrying at all about finding places to kanikapila from what I've seen and heard of you online through Youtube videos, your stints on the Andy Bumatai show, and articles I've read in online Hawai'i newspapers. You have a gift of exuding aloha from within wherever you go and it shows through brah, in your music as well as the way you walk the walk.

Plus like you said brah, you going get one L&L's right by you. No can go wrong. \m/\m/

Aloha,

Welcome to the Patch. Plenty Hawaiian stuff happening in the SF Bay Area as mentioned previously. Iʻm sure youʻll be of interest to those venues that offer live entertainment on Friday and Saturday evenings. Iʻm in SF and fortunate to participate in several kani in the immediate Bay Area. Maybe you might want to venture once a month this far to check it out like the monthly open mic at Temple Bar in Berkeley, or the monthly open mic extravaganza at the new Tiki Tomʻs in Oakland. But definitely check out Cowtown Kanikapila every second Sunday of the month. When I can, Iʻm there. Hope to be playing with you sometime in the future.

Brother Lawrence,

Thank you for the info on the Cowtown Kanikapila! Will you be there? Would love to meet you. Do you know when the one in May is? I'll be moved by then. I'm moving out of noisy Honolulu (Punahou and Dole) complete with Freeway entrance, hospital one block away with accompanying sirens etc. Get this.. I'm moving to a quiet gated community with my girl. Talk about culture shock! Heh,heh! Thanks so much your response. Please keep in touch on Taropatch and you can contact me on my website too. Much aloha, brah!

Mike

We don't get there very often in recent times. We have attended about three times since it started a few years ago, but more recently my day job has been working me long hours on the weekdaze and often on Saturdaze too, leaving Sundays as the only day to do stuff around the house! aaaaarrgh! (That's Tampa-Bay Pirate Talk) But, eventually we will drive out again some Sunday, can't say when.

The honorable jlsulle should post sometime soon about this, he usually announces it about a week before here on taropatch.

We are also going to try to make it to the "Aloha Sunday" at TempleBar in Berzerkly (mentioned above) more often. Since that is about 45 min drive instead of 105 minute drive for us, it is much easier to get to, but the tradition there is to have a house band and a much shorter "open mic" period, not really a kanikapila.

Thanks Sistah,

I feel I can make it over there knowing so many have the aloha and are willing to share it! Even if they're far away in the midwest, east coast, etc. I hope we get to meet soon. When I get GPS, I going come up Ohio. No mo' makai, mauka, D.Head and Ewa so I need all the help I can get.

Is that the Kurt Silva in Bend, Oregon? If it is, he's good friends with my brother Bill who also lives in Bend. Thanks again for all your good and positive spirit. Much aloha, Wanda and God bless...

Mike
