The annual Ukulele Festival at Kapiolani Park Bandstand in Waikiki is now a summer tradition in Hawaii. It has grown internationally and is by far the largest ukulele festival of its kind in the world, with crowds of thousands, guest artists from around the world and an ukulele orchestra of over 800 students, mostly children.
Grammy Award-winning national pop artist James Ingram has been a frequent guest at the ukulele festival since 1994 when he and Roy met by chance while exercising on the tracks of the University of Hawaii. James Ingram, who has 7 children of his own, was so taken by the concept of the Ukulele Festival whose main stars are the 800 children.
For the next four hours ukulele virtuosos, internationally known musicians, local celebrities donate their time and talented ukulele players from around the world and a ukulele orchestra of over 800 students, mostly children will take the stage and delight the crowd with laughter, love and hope.
