Hello fellow Nashukers.
The Nashville Ukulele Society is still alive and kicking!
It has been an incredibly long time since I have posted anything on this blog and now it's time to dust off the blog and start the ukulele engine back up and get this thing chugging down the internet highway again.
There have been a few changes since the last post. First of all, we are no longer meeting at Fanny's House of Music. Our numbers have grown to the point that we were very cramped in the small space that Fanny's graciously provided for us. At the moment we do not have a permanent meeting place. For June we met at World Music in Bellevue and in July and August we will be meeting at Harding Academy in the school's band rehearsal room (we met there once before and it was a great space for a uke circle). Once a permanent home is located that information will be posted here and to our Facebook page. Yes, we are on Facebook. That's another of our changes - follow us there and join in on the discussions: Nashukes Facebook
The Facebook group now has 96 members so if you haven't joined the group yet please visit the page and join in on the ukulele discussions.
Another change since the last post is that the administrative duties of The Nashukes is now being shared between Tim Davies, Debbie Haight and myself (Andy Hudson). In addition, Tim Davies has taken on the roll of the new Master of Ceremonies for the Nashukes meet-ups and Debbie Haight is our official traveling ukulele corespondent. She has been hitting all of the major ukulele festivals and skill building camps and reporting back on Facebook and at the Nashukes meetings. Thank you Tim and Debbie!
The next Nashukes meeting is July 21st. Put it in your calendar and check back here and on the Facebook page for updates.

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.
