Viva Las Ohana!

The Hoover Dam. Damn!

The Ohana Mobile left Albuquerque and took the long way home

Hitting the strip. Tease!

I know it is summer, and summer is hot, but it was HOT!!!!

REALLY HOT!

There was one long melted girl pouring out of the car…

Even the pod on top exploded.  Fortunately, no dirndls were lost

Akkk! Top popped at 75mph!

Tomorrow morning we ship out to places north- Camp OoOoKoLayLay to teach for a week (spaces still available for day or overnighters) and then a stop in to master uke maker Michael DaSilva.  We are gonna have a Sukey Jump on Saturday, August 25 in his workshop.

C’mon in, Northern Cal Pals!

Kristen, Daniel, Chris, Sam, Emily and Doctor Rock

We feel like we have gained a family- the amazing Chris Wiser and his lovely wife Emily not only hosted us in their home but introduced us to their peeps. We played a show together with his band, the Sugar Free Allstars at cafe Evoke, a mighty swell joint in Edmond, OK.

Evoke’s Jenny and Tuker

The Cafe filled up with happy families who bopped out to the SFA’s funky sound.

gotta dance!
Getting down!

It was a treat to combine forces with them, and we did our funky best, including our new song the Boogie Man. We even did a few songs where we all played ukes together and then joined them on some SFA tunes. Throwing down together is what it is all about! How inspiring to be with such generous people. I can’t wait to see them again when they come to LA in January for their show at McCabes!

OhanaMobile passes still smoking burn areas near Tulsa

The day before we had done a library show in Tulsa. The Hardesty branch is an amazing facility, and the storytime room was painted with fantastic animals. We sang songs about them, and did a bunch of songs in Spanish with the kids.

“You’re doin’ fine Oklahoma….” Hard not to hear the Rodgers & Hammerstein refrain. Oklahoma, OK!
