Well dang. I forgot to post anything about the November meeting on here. In case you were wondering (does anyone actually read this blog?), it was Christmas themed. This is because we don't have a uke jam/meeting in December. Normally there would be a Christmas party in December but not this year. Even though the party is a lot of fun it's also a lot of work and costs a bit of money to put it on every year. We are tightening the belt around our house this year so the party is off. See you in January.

It's time for the monthly uke jam gathering at Fanny's House of Music. The theme is Halloween so please bring a couple of songs that are in keeping with the upcoming holiday. This doesn't mean that the songs have to be about Halloween - it could be a song that mentions something that makes you think of ghosts, ghouls and such things.
See you tonight.
See you tonight.

This line of ukulele was endorsed by Ukulele Hughes, a contemporary of Ukulele Ike. (Notice the adorable spelling of ukulele on the tag.
I'm not sure what the Werner's sticker on the head stock is about. Perhaps it's a music store. Nothing turned up in a quick Google search. (nothing ukulele-related, anyway.)
I think the lady was asking around $250 for it but willing to entertain offers. Tempted as I am, I had to leave it behind, so this could be a real deal for somebody.

The Ukedelic's Michael Timme just uploaded this spy cam clip from a recent rehearsal. We're trying to get the wheels on The Carol of the Ukes (an original reworking of The Carol of the Bells, arranged for ukulele by Tim Davies.) We're hoping to get it worked out in time for Christmas. It's off to a pretty good start--I think it's going to turn out very cool.

Nashukes member Melinda Judy will be leading a Ukulele Jam at Centennial Park today in front of the Parthenon (near the picnic tables in the shade) from 11am to 1pm and is planning to lead these uke jams in Centennial Park each Saturday weekly. If you would like to join in the fun just show up with your uke and start strumming.
