Hawaiian Style Grill - Summer Kickoff 2009
On Saturday we headed down to Elk Grove for the Hawaiian Style Grill Summer Kickoff party. It was a great day filled with music, hula dancing and great food. Here are a few pics from the day. There were a number of groups that performed and then I had the pleasure of sharing the stage, for a couple of numbers, with Brad (aka Hippie Guy) who runs the website at Live `Ukulele. Brad's mom shot some video which you can see below. The hickups in the video near the end are from my wife snapping some photos which froze up the video for a micro second.
The HSG group gets together each Friday evening and I hope to make it down for one of them in the near future.

Brittni Paiva & Dominator at Indigo Sunday Brunch
The day after the Minden festival, Brittni performs her intimate solo show during Sunday Brunch at Indigo Bar and Bistro. Affectionately called Hawaii's ukulele darling and slack key supergirl for her remarkable instrumental proficiency, Brittni walked away with the 2005 Na Hoku Hanohano “Most Promising Artist Award” at the age of 16 for her debut recording, Brittni X 3 in which she played all three parts—ukulele, guitar and bass. Now 20 with multiple awards under tow, Miss Paiva is a delight to behold in concert.
Again, I am honored to have the opportunity to open for Brittni at Indigo. Check the Uke Fest Website for additional info.
Dominator T-Shirts Now Available
You asked for them and they have finally arrived. The Dominator Ukuleles Online Store is now open. Inventory is limited as I don't have any smalls or mediums at this time. Another order is being placed and should be here within the next 3 weeks (just in time for the Tahoe Area Uke Fest).
