Island of Maui

Mele ‘Ukulele founders Michael and Cheryl Rock are the latest recipients of the prestigious 2016 Mayor’s Small Business Lifetime Achievement Award. Building, selling, and distributing high-quality koa ‘ukuleles for 23 years, they opened their Shops at Wailea store over a year ago and word quickly got out that this is the place to buy fi ne, handcrafted ‘ukuleles (and some nice affordable ones too). They offer free mini-lessons and are never too busy to share ‘ukulele history and information—stop by and hear the sweet sounds of aloha! On three Wednesday evenings each month, from 6 to 8pm, join them at fountain courtyard at The Shops for their ‘Ukulele Mix Plate event, featuring lively and entertaining ‘ukulele performances with an opportunity to learn how to play. Discover why instruments from Mele ‘Ukuleles are preferred by top Hawaiian entertainers and world famous musicians. Take one of these beauties home and you will be rewarded with a lifetime of fun and music. Open daily 9:30am to 9pm.
