Hey UUers! This one has been a long time coming ... the winner of the All Things Reggae Contest is ...

[Click Here to Find Out!!] (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JhUjJC725G8)

Congrats!! Aw man, there were so many awesome entries - you guys definitely made it hard for us to narrow it down to each of our top tens (from there Mike danced around our lists, said some incantations, and the winner arose from a fiery flame).

Thanks to everyone who entered! More give-aways on the way (hopefully easier ones ... with much shorter wait times on picking the winner)! Have a great, uke-filled week!

Great video! As Aldrine said, it was really rough to choose a winner. Uptown Top Ranking was on almost all the judges top 10 list and the favorite of several.

Way to go, Stubbs!

I must admit that I'm not a big reggae fan, but I'm broadening my horizons on UU, and watching lots of stuff I ordinarily wouldn't. I've been following the reggae contest, the metal contest, the hip hop contest....all genres I wouldn't ordinarily like. I really appreciate the hard work and talent that goes into all of them, even if the style isn't necessarily my cup of tea.

Congrats again, Smokey....job well done!

Thank you all for the congrats. This has really brightened up my day. I've been walking around with a huge grin all day. It really means a lot that something me and my buds created has been received with such appreciation. :D

I joined UU for the friendly community. The contests and :bowdown: the amazing musicians and video makers here encourage me to create more. And now I've gone and won a beautiful ukulele! This is certainly the happiest place on earth (:eek:please don't sue me Disney).

Thank you from myself, The Smooth Newt & Adzuki to Aaron, the UU Staff, Mike, Mainland & all you guys that make this the greatest community I've ever been a part of.

And well done to everyone that entered, so many great entries, I enjoyed them all. The high level of the performers here is just astounding. Big up you all and ting!


I'm looking forward to seeing you playing that fantastic uke
This is why I love UUAs soon as I receive it I will post a thank you video. I love UU too!


congrats!!

Big time :shaka: Actually I've got a few things brewing that involve a bit of dress-up. Costumes ftw I say!

Cracking! I didn't see this one during the contest, but I'll agree it's amongst the very best. Really enjoyed it. Dammit, I wanted to win, but I can find no way to knock this, it's a great track, and a really good video. Congrats!

Thanks again to everyone for holding the contest, giving the prize for the contest, entering the contest and all your kind words during and after the contest!

Just to let you know, I received a letter from Parcel Force today asking me for 37.71 for the VAT (booo). Anyways, paid that and the uke should be with me on Tuesday.

I'm so excited, and I just can't hide it. :smileybounce:

And it sounds as good as it looks (video to follow). :shaka:

THANK YOU!!!

Well done man, you deserve it, 37.71 is a small price to pay for such a lovely Uke.

Too right! For the joy this baby is gonna bring me and hopefully others listening to it, A small price to pay indeed!

edit: yeah, i first went to pay it online and it crashed out so I paid it on the phone. Turns out the online payment worked and I've paid it twice. D'oh! Gonna have to get that back.
