Aloha everyone! Thursday is my birthday and I'd like to host a little Uke party here. If you would like to post some songs, I mostly like traditional Italian, Hawaiian and Mariachi songs. My favorites from each of those categories are, Santa Lucia in Italian, Cielito Lindo in the Mariachi category, Aloha oe and Sweet Leilani in the Hawaiian category. Que sera sera in a misc category. You don't have to do all of them but do what you can. I'm really looking forward to Thursday and I'm planning to bring out little Kalea. That's the nickname of my little Kala soprano. I know that some of you don't like the idea of hosting Uu birthday parties but That's Ok. Thank you all in advance. Aloha again!

Hi Cassie,

I dunno if I will have time to do a song, since I'm already working on trying to find a song for this CURRENT week's season as well:

HOWEVER, I still wanted to wish you a Very Happy Birthday! :) from New Jersey!

Mahalo,

Booli

Happy Birthday. Haven't figured out how to make a recording yet. I have this camera clipped to the top of my monitor, staring me with it's little eye.

Seasons of the Uke 229 had a lot of Hawaiian songs. Most much better than mine.

Happy Birthday Cassie!:shaka::cheers::music:

You did very well! What chords did you use? I'm trying to learn that one also. I have to tell you that my favorite rock song is Mamma's got a squeezebox by the who. Maybe we can come up with a homemade version called Mamma's got a uke. I'll start it out for you. Mamma's got a uke that she sits on her lap. That's a rock song that I like. If anybody knows that one, feel free to add it. Ah snap! I need to get to sleep because I have a doctor's appointment in the morning which is really messed up because I won't be able to spend the morning checking out all the surprises that await me tonight while I sleep. Lol. Now I can't sleep. I'm really charged up. I love hearing your voice. I've got 3 more days left until the big day and I'm looking forward to it.

Hi Cassie, many happy wishes for your birthday. Here's one that falls [barely] into the mariachi category, by the great Tim Keough - https://ukulelesecrets.org/2011/04/22/alacran-y-pistolero-spanish-ukulele-vocal-video-and-tab/

Very nice. I really like Mariachi. I could let loose with a grito but I can't because my sister is asleep. A grito is a yell of excitement that the Mariachi players do.

Maybe in the morning of your Birthday, instead of an alarm clock, you could do a few gritos, you know, kinda like the rooster announcing the sunrise!

I mean it's YOUR birthday, you should be able to belt out a few since it's your special day.

That's what I would do. :)

I have a recording of a grito that I can add to my IPad's alarm clock.

Cassie

I want to thank all of you for your nice songs and wishes. It was awesome! On my birthday itself, I got to ride our horse for the first time. Yes, we have a horse. Had him for a few months now. Now it's back to practicing with Kalea and My Ili'ili. Ili'ili are smooth flat rocks that are used as Hawaiian Castanets.

Cassie, I wished you a happy birthday in my comment on BEV's first vid on this thread. Just in case, I want to say it again: Hope you had a great birthday week and enjoyed the music and your uke and castanets!:)
