The Ukedelics Live! (in Todd and Anita's den)

You might think that, because there are cameras in every phone nowadays, that it's easy to get good video of your band in action. It really isn't. Show bookers want to see good video of what a band looks and sounds like live.  We had a hundred clips on YouTube shot with iPhones and whatnot, but we realized they weren't good enough, so we did this "live in the den" session with a four camera setup.


Here is one of our favorites, I Wanna Be Like You, featuring Andy Hudson. Listen for the scat!

January Uke Meeting 1/19/15

The next Nashukes Meeting/Uke Circle/Uke Jam will be on Monday January 19th at Harding Academy  from 6 - 7:30pm. The address is:

170 Windsor Dr., Nashville, Tn



It's near the corner of Harding Rd. and Hwy 70.
Enter the campus from Harding Road and drive around to the back. When you see the middle school entrance, park in the right hand lane and come in the double doors to the Art Center that are right in the middle of the courtyard.

I'm not aware of any particular theme for this month's meeting - perhaps MC Tim Davies has something in mind. Check back here for more info about this month's meeting.

James Hill at The Station Inn - Nashville, Tn.

The Nashville Ukulele Society was invited to attend a private performance with James Hill at The Station Inn tonight. It was a fantastic show! And James did a strum/sing along after the show with the audience (yes, the Nashukers showed up with ukes at the ready).  We all had a chance to meet James after the show. BIG THANKS to Claire Armbruster for making this possible. Can't wait for James Hill to come back to Nashville!

The Night Owls - hot ukulele jazz

Here are three tunes from a great jazz band from the UK, The Night Owls. The band features former Uke Cast podcast contributor Nipper. The Uke Cast podcast has been out of production since 2009 but you can still find episodes on iTunes. It was a great way to learn about new ukulele performers and hear some of their music as well as keep up with the latest ukulele news.
