Hey All,

Now that Jake has already come out to support the first UGH forum, how's about the UGH members go out and support him too.  He is having the first Jake Shimabukuro Ukulele Symposium on Saturday, March 23 at Kaimuki HS.  There are various classes being offered and a reception/concert at 6:00PM.  If you take one of the classes, the reception/concert is included.  Else I think there is a small fee, but, will have pupus and then the concert after.  Anyways, if you're interested, check out www.jakeshimabukuro.com and you can download the application. 

Laters,
gh

Glad to hear it ukeman.  I'm registered for that class too.  So see ya there.

Will be getting some tickets for the March 23, evening concert from Kaz (Jake's manager) to sell at the March 9, UGH general membership meeting.  Think they run about $8, so for all you that will be at the general membership meeting, bring your $8 or more for your friends/family.  This will be a reception/concert so for your $8 you'll get a pupu reception plus the concert.  So don't miss it. 

Once again, mark your calendars.  It's on March 23 @ 6:00pm at Kaimuki HS.  Don't miss it!!!

Also, if you sign up for one of the classes, the reception/concert is included, so do one better and sign up for one of the classes. 
Later,
gh

na mele hawaii  was another winnah.....mahalos to Byron Yasui for organizing this event...went hand in hand with the Art Academy renovation of their theatre so the Uke boys broke in the newly renovated facilities.The event was led off by Benny Chong and his unreal jazz stylings..followed by Byron who also played jazzy oldies, ethereal japanese melodies...i mean koto or shamisen on an ukulele? amazin....Byron also played old standard jazz numbers....After intermission   Gordon Mark led off with his classical and romantic stylings with his Rachmaninoff on ukulele and sweet Hawaiian renditions ala Gordon Mark.....this guy is smoother than peanut butter. The nite capped off with Jumpin Jake and his infectious ukulele wizzardry...There is no describing Jake you gots to be there to take it all in....his pauses are simply dramatic...and he hasnt even picked nor strummed a note.But when he does.......oh wow....the sounds are simply amazing.In a nutshell with four righteous guys it was an amazing nite.....their CD is out so buy one when you get the chance....    ukeman

Hey,

Found this link to the WCC site which talks about the ukulele workshops and gives registration information.  Sign up early and get a discount.  Looks like you can sign up for both days for a cheaper price or for just one day.   Unfortunately, the Saturday session conflicts with the UGH's binding workshop.  Sad  Hopefully the guild will postpone the binding workshop scheduled for 7/13 so we can go to both days and not miss the workshop. HINT!!!  HINT!!!!  Wink  Anyways, take a look.

Much Mahalos to the Wokman Rudy and Nate for hosting the 1st UGH Windward regional meeting.   Smiley  As always with the UGH events, the grinds was ono and got to meet a bunch more of the UGH members more up and close.  The jig sharing idea was a winner and got a few more ideas for some of my own. 

Mucho mahalos,
gh
