About


E Komo Mai (Welcome) to Aloha Plenty!


The McMaster Calling
'Aloha' feels good. Experiencing aloha touches and opens the individual heart to shine its perfect light.  The light of the soul.  Once touched by aloha, your light and your Aloha touches those around you to 'feel better' and connect with their light and aloha... creating a ripple effect that expands further and further... touching hearts, opening to feeling good and sharing their light... literally lighting our world with Aloha.

This is what 'our hands were made for', using the gifts we were given... the music, stories, and art of Aloha... traditional Hawaiian slack key guitar and ukulele and storytelling.

The call was clear and strong. Kupuna (elders) opened their hearts and light to us, guiding us as we found our way.  The islands, the universe, and the ancestors shared amazing experiences, music, and stories with us and in turn we share them with you.

James Keli'ipio Kahea Mawae of Molokai, one of our kumu (teachers) said, "Slack key brings family together."  Over 10 years of nightly sunset serenades by Hanalei Bay and Kepuhi Bay and 25+ years of weekly concerts amidst mountains, taro patches, endangered birds, and rainbows have called together people from all walks of life and corners of the world.  Together we all share ho'oponopono (making things right)... opening hearts, letting go of hurts, healing, connecting with nature, experiencing indescribable feelings of peace and Aloha.

The World-wide Slack Key 'Ohana
We all have become 'ohana (family) with strong, abiding connections.
We’ve hanai’d (adopted) a world-wide ‘ohana (family) of Aloha spirited people, yes, that's YOU.
And YOU have hanai'd (adopted) us.
You are always in our hearts.

The biggest frustration has been having to wait for ‘aloha time’ together between your visits to Kauai. Our newsletter and emails enabled keeping in touch… Somewhat… NOT ENOUGH!

It is time for more Aloha in our world.
We need to reach outside of the island of Kauai.
To be connected year round.

And Patreon gives us a way to do that together.

We can be there for you always, no matter where you are. No need to travel to get a little Aloha in your day.  It's right here, right now, whenever you want/need it. No boundaries of time and space.

Together we are growing to present live nature and sunset slack key serenades... where we come together (physically and virtually), making things right, opening our hearts, filling with Aloha, letting our lights shine, growing peace and Aloha around the world.

And through the stories, recordings, and videos we create together,
we will leave this Aloha Plenty legacy to carry the mission and the call forward.
As you have been reminding us to teach, to capture and preserve, for future generations.

Does the Aloha Plenty experience and legacy resonate with your heart and soul? 
Join us here on Patreon, there's always a place in the family for you. 

Mahalo palena ‘ole (Gratitude beyond measure) for sharing your hearts with us, listening to our music and stories, for being in our lives, for giving us our purpose, and supporting our work.
Let’s get busy spreading more Aloha together.
A hui hou,
