Duke's Ukes Coming to Waikiki August 7

Duke's Ukes Coming to Waikiki August 7

It’s high-time for the annual “Duke’s Ukes” contest sponsored by Outrigger Waikiki on the Beach, which features some of the hottest up-and-coming musicians throughout the State of Hawai`i. The next Jake Shimabukuro, Makana or even Jack Johnson might rise and shine this August as the contest gets under way.

The event starts with auditions for each age group, which begins on August 7th, at the Outrigger Waikiki Hotel, 2nd floor. The ages are broken down as follows: 6 - 10 years, 11 - 15 years, 16 - 18 years and 19 and older.

Participation in the ukulele contest is absolutely free. The winners in each category will receive a brand new ukulele from the legendary instrument maker, Kamaka Ukulele—who are also a sponsor of the event (along with the Pacific Music Foundation).

Tune up your 4-string, polish that favorite campfire jam, and come on down on the 7th. It might be your year to shine.
