'Ukulele Festival of Northern California

Uncle Hollis and Uncle John

About Us

History

The 'Ukulele Festival of Northern California was founded by the late "uncles" Hollis Baker and John Ogao, well-known musicians of the San Francisco Bay Area's Hawaiian Community. These "uncles" organized the first Festival in March 1994 with help from a few family members, friends & students from
Hollis' 'ukulele class.

They shared a vision for this festival. And their legacy lives on through our mission statement:

"To promote and perpetuate the playing of 'ukulele music
by bringing all ages and levels together to share 'ukulele talent.
To provide a kani ka pila (play music) environment as an inspiration to our youth
with the hope that they will keep the traditions and music of our heritage alive.
To provide a venue touched by the Spirit of Aloha for all persons to enjoy."
