Under the Boardwalk
Under the Boardwalk: A Ukulele Love Story tells the story of how a small house party in Santa Cruz, California grows into the biggest ukulele club in the world. It is also the story of how a small instrument makes a long journey from Portugal to Hawaii to the mainland, lands in people’s hearts, and creates a uniquely Hawaiian-American musical tradition now experiencing a world-wide revival.
The Ukulele Club of Santa Cruz and the ukulele instrument itself are the two main characters of the film. Their stories are inter-cut, as both overcome humble beginnings to meet with unlikely success.
