    Default SoCal Inland Empire Ukulele Festival 0504/10...

    Ukulele Festival on Tuesday May 4, 2010.

    A few of us are heading up there for the festivities. Carol Bonomo and I
    attended last year. There were clubs from all around the southern California
    area. We represented the Ukulele Society of America (the only San Diego area
    group attending) playing Makaha Valley as a duet. There were children groups,
    hula troops, clubs, guest stars and individual performers. Mitch Chang of the
    Southern California Slack Key Festival performed slack key on the Ukulele.

    It started with each group playing a couple of representative songs and then
    rotating to the next group. All this was while seated! Then a large buffet style
    Island lunch (more than you could eat!) with deserts and drinks, too! This was
    followed by a guest performer.

    At the entrance, there was a signup sheet for the open mic following the guest
    performer. I'll have to admit it was probaly the most enjoyment I've had for $10
    bucks in a long time! See y'all there. If enough of us attend, we can perform
    seated as the Ukulele Society of America. Thanks to Ernie Pruden for making us
    aware of this event. Ric Douglas (760)458-6656

    Sounds like fun! And only $10 including lunch is a real bargain.

    But on a Tuesday? Why wouldn't they hold it on a weekend when more people could attend?

    itsme, trust me, find a way to get that day off fast! This event is HUGE and will sell out well before it's scheduled. EVEN ON A TUESDAY! It's the same every year. I went last year it was packed full, but very well organized and everyone got a seat. The island cuisine was superb and bountifull. In addition, there were plenty of other foodstuffs like pizza and fried chicken. Ric
