Trapped in Paradise
Join a 20+ year resident of Oahu as he goes around and explores the happenings and sights in Hawaii. Some podcasts will be dealing with local events some will be places. Some episodes will be geared towards residents and some geared towards tourists. In any case come along with me and enjoy the sights and sounds of a place that people save for a life time to visit for 10 days. I get to live here and need to enjoy it more.

In this episode of Trapped in Paradise we go the Sheraton Waikiki to visit with some of our neighbors to the north. The Langley Ukulele Ensemble is a group of students from Langley, British Columbia, Canada. Under the direction of Peter Luongo they have traveled around the globe showing the versatility of the ukulele and the showmanship that they share with their audiences. I was introduced to them by my boss who brought me to a Rotary Club meeting in Downtown Honolulu where they were performing. They have been coming to Hawaii for about a week each July over the past 15 or so years. It is not all fun and sun as they perform shows around Oahu. They were filmed on July 8, 2008 performing at the Sheraton Waikiki in the lobby. Their nightly show is about an hour in length and is tons of fun. With Peters permission this video shows 3 of the songs that they did during that hour. At the end of the video Peter talks about their CDs for sale. I personally own 4 of them and would encourage you to support the group with your purchase of their music. Their website is http://www.langleyukes.com. Find out more about them, their history and schedule as well as purchasing their CDs in the "recordings" section of the web site. I hope that you enjoy this video and support the Langley Ukulele Ensemble! Please rate us over at i-tunes. Feedback can be send to frikitikiproductions (at) gmail.com
