View Full Version : Shanghai Clubs, Jams, Players . . .?

We're looking at a potential 2-year stint in Shanghai.

Are there any jams there? Any good expat gatherings?

We haven't decided whether we're living in Puxi or Pudong yet beyond "We want to be close to the Metro."

Ni Hao! This is great news. Now there will be 2 of us on UU who live in China! Earlier this year I started a group in Xiamen and its still growing. But since then I've moved to Guangzhou. There was another American in Beijing who was playing, but she told me they are not meeting up anymore. I like Shanghai and am hoping to attend the annual Music China Expo there this October 8-11. Great deals on some great ukes there.

BTW, how do you like the SouthCoast Machete strings on your Soprano? Dirk sent me some, but they seem to have never made it past Chinese customs. :(

I love the sound, but the Machete/Slack-Key mindset is VERY different, and takes getting used to.

I plan on carrying at least six months supply of strings with me when I go.
