Berkeley Hawaiian Music Festival Oct.3-4, 2014

The Berkeley Hawaiian Music Festival is a two day celebration of Hawaiian Music, Hula and community contributors! This year's recipients of the Ke Kanaka Po`okela Award are Henry Bray and Roy Ching. Henry "Hanalei" Bray's dedication to the Bay Area Hawaiian Music/Hula scene goes as far back as performing for "Trader Vic" himself. Uncle Hanalei is one of the last Bay Area musicians of that generation and is considered a Bay Area Hawaiian Historian. Roy Ching, founder of Kalani Canoe Club, Kalani Club Volleyball and also a old time Bay Area Hawaiian musician. Roy has been coaching young people for over 40 years, whether paddling or volleyball, he has been a positive influence on so many.

The first recipient on the Festival's Lifetime Acheivement Award is Cyril Pahinui. Words cannot express how much Uncle Cyril means to me and to all those he has influenced here in the Bay Area and beyond. Uncle Cyril has made it known to me that this may be his final trip to California due to health issues. Saturday night, we will honor him.

Each show I produce is special, however bringing Hawaii's music to my hometown, Berkeley, California, means the world to me. This is my community and I was born and raised here. I've always tried to give my mother the opportunity to listen to LIVE Hawaiian music in her "backyard" and to encourage as well as challenge others to do the same in their community....A tribute to my mother who shared so much of her aloha to us all, and with me, the gift of Hawaiian Music...IMUA and please SPREAD THIS POST....

Quotes...teal flower

Kalani was an amazing way of getting in shape, improving my skills, and making tons of friends. I know, personally, I've improved an incredible amount, and my team has improved in our ability to work together more than I could have every hoped.

For me and my daughter this was an incredible experience. The coaches, and other families at Kalani made us feel welcome, but specifically Roy, who undeniably has a true love for volleyball, and complete dedication to develop excellent players. My overall impression is that Kalani is a well rounded professional organization, that welcomes all families.

Club Kalani was the best sporting experience of my life. Not only did it improve my athletic abilities, but Club Kalani has made me more confident and has left me with friends for a lifetime.

Club Kalani met my expectations and it was a wonderful experience.

I really appreciate that Kalani not only taught me how to be a better volleyball player, but also how to be a good sport. Plus, the food was excellent!
