I think this is the message/form that was being talked about at the get together in Yakima with Uncle Rickie. I just wanted to tell all who were thank you for such a great time...i have never experience anything like that before. I was the guy playing the lap steel guitar kinda off to the side. Thanks for showing me such great "aloha" and making me feel like i belonged. Blessings to all who were there!

For those not in the know, the Yakima, Wash., kanikapila is an underground/grassroots multi-day Hawaiian music jam that takes place in the waiting room of a medical office. It is part of what is now three events in Yakima, Kennewick and Spokane that liven up the Hawaiian calendar in desert-like Eastern Washington.
I went to Yakima last year and it was an amazing time, full of aloha and good music. I missed this year because it coincided with May Day celebrations closer to where I live.

To participate, are you required to leave a speciman with the nurse?

The jam is a wonder to behold and to participate in. It is very low key and doesn't accept all comers because of space and venue. It is after all a clinic that does business in the medical world. But it is a great gathering of musicians who have no big self promoting egos and chefs of foods found in Hawai'i. It is really great to find cuisine that surpasses any so called Hawaiian restaurant in the state of Washington. But most of all it is the atmosphere of aloha that pervades the entire weekend that is worth the trip if one is invited. This is the small jam. the bigger jam known as Blue Ridge Bash is the one that is open to all who chose to make the trip. It happens this October andI am planning to attend.

Uncle Al good to hear from you,ALOHA! I'm making plans to be there in October, but i'm also going to be at Dusty Strings Uke Fest, late June 27-28th. I have plans to get there about 4:00 p.m. that saturday. I'm very interested to learn something from Kimo Hussey and go to the jam hosted by Uncle Rod Higuchi. Hope to see you there!

p.s. I still laugh when i think of Uncle Ricky saying "not bad for a white boy!" When i was playing his Uke...hahaha!

I gotta correck you on dat one, braddah Al. While da Blue Bridge Bash has traditionally been larger in size than da one in Yakima mainly due to da additional number of hula halau members, keikis and their ohana who live in da area, it cannot yet be open to all who choose to make the trip simply due to the venue's limited seating capacity and fire code regulations. There have been a few times when da number of okoles exceeded da number of chairs which then gave everyone da feeling like you stay driving on da H-1 freeway between Punchbowl St. and Red Hill during pau hana traffic -- way too crowded for comfort. So if only for those reasons alone it needs to remain a by-invitation-only kind of event.
