Album Notes
The Hoppin' Haole Brothers

The Hoppin' Haole Brothers are one of the most original bands on the scene today. This six-piece combo has taken the tropical-bopical sounds of Hawaiian, Bossa Nova, and Cuban music and mixed them with their other more continental tastes like vaudeville, hot jazz and country swing, creating an island music all their own - the music of Manhattan Island.

Hailed as the swingingest island combo on the East Coast, The Hoppin' Haole Brothers excite audiences everywhere with their catchy melodies, hilarious lyrics and tropically punchy rhythms. A favorite of the cocktail vacationer, the Ukulele Hall of Fame Museum, and college radio, this band supplies the perfect soundtrack for anyone seeking shelter beneath the tiny umbrella. So pack your ears and set off on a tour of the sun and fun drenched sounds of The Hoppin' Haole Brothers.

Formed in 2000, the core musicians are Scott Warnasch, ukuleles and vocals; Kurt Westphal, electric guitars; Bob Charde, string bass, and vocals; AJ Faas, drums and percussion; Richard White, steel guitars and Dobro; and Linda Warnasch, vocals.

Their first CD titled How-lee is out on the Acme Sound Laboratory label. It features twelve hot numbers including special guest; legendary entertainer and stride piano wizard Uncle Floyd.

Incredibly catchy!
While some of the lyrics border on juvenile, the music is incredibly catchy and will keep you up late at night, wishing it would leave you alone. This is great music, with some slammin' ukulele playing. Buy it!


Teriffic, Snappy, great musicianship
Nifty combo with some fun lyrics and a surprising level of musicianship. I bought it for the uke centered playting, but
love the songs. Way more sophisticated then most uke recordings. I really hope they do another.


Fun music. Makes me wanna dance.
The lyrics are smart and funny. The songs in the CD flow nicely from one to the other. My kids love the music as much as I do.

I stopped smoking grass
I was about commiting suicide, because I live in a little french town with rain all year long, suddenly, I heard your band, looking at the radio programs of a website.
My life have change, and now I play ukulélé and I'm about to have a band in the spirit of yours. Thank you to exist !

Buffet better watch out!!!


time to party!
this cd is full of catchy lyrics that stick in your head. probably the all time "chill and grill" album. no matter where you are, you'll soon feel like your on your own private island, sipping on something cold with a little umbrella in it, wearing hawaiin threads, and waiting on your friends to come lu-ow.
