Kalei Gamiao - Workshop & Demonstration

Workshop Description Coming Soon!

June 10 - 6:30PM - 8:30PM
TICKETS ARE $35, PLEASE BOOK YOUR SPOT EARLY (858)-414-4492

Wielding his ukulele like it will one day rule the world, Kalei Gamiao mesmerizes audiences with imaginative musicality and flawless execution. This soft-spoken young man can silence a talkative crowd as he delicately picks or fires away at his simple four-stringed instrument. Captivated by his skill and the ukulele’s versatility, expressions like “I was floored” or “he had me at the edge of my seat” are familiar responses from first time listeners who eagerly fall under the power of Kalei’s ukulele. Award winning ukulele master, Herb Ohta, Jr., summed it up best when he declared, “Kalei’s music and ukulele prowess will take the ukulele to new heights!” 

Kalei’s been at the forefront of today’s ukulele revolution since 2008 when his debut album, “Contemporary Ukulele,” kicked up the demand for performances in the U.S., Japan, Korea, Taiwan, China, Hong Kong, Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand, exposing Kalei to hundreds of thousands of ukulele enthusiasts. His exposure to a wide variety of ukulele masters including Alfred Canopin, Gordon Mark, Byron Yasui, Benny Chong, and Kimo Hussey, motivated him to embrace a range of styles; jazz, rock, pop, classical, blues, flamenco, funk, as well as the music of his cultural roots – Hawaiian and island contemporary.

For Kalei, who says, “There is never a sad or dull moment when the ukulele is present,” the power of the ukulele goes well beyond his ability to dazzle an audience. During his travels, he witnessed the ukulele’s ability to bring people together in spite of obvious differences. Seeing these students of the ukulele happily strumming together in his workshops convinced Kalei that music has the power to inspire, heal, and create peace: “Music has the power to change the world.  I’m just a messenger.” Kalei supports his belief in the power of music by actively promoting charitable organizations like the Music for Life Foundation which raises funds to provide musical instruments to Hawaii’s schools, and by offering ukulele workshops to students, in the same way in which he was mentored.

Life After the Third Fret – Beginner to Intermediate
2:00 – 3:30PM – with Sarah Maisel

We all play in ukulele groups, and we all learn to play and strum the same thing. In this class, we will focus on different ways to change chords, so you can enhance the sound of the group. This is a great class for all skill levels. Let's work together using substitution chords and possibly even chords up the neck to make your group sound even better!
