ok i know im late about this but i just found out today. i have no affiliation with bushman either. i just thought this would be cool, considering the talent we have here.

so anyway, bushman is having their "world ukulele contest" right now. it started back in october, and its ending dec24th at midnight. yah... tomorrow. make a video, post it on youtube or myspace, email them the address to your video, and wait for the results.

first place is any bushman uke of your choice and tweed case
second place is uke of choice
third is case of choice
and all honorable mentions get three packs of aquila strings of choice.

so yeah, if youre interested, here is our entry... our own rendition of an oldy but goody called sleepwalk.

Dude did you know Aldrine is banned from entering the yearly Ukulele contest on Kauai? Hahaha. He won it like 3 or 4 years in a row (after a stunning upset loss to another ukulele player who was in the room during the live performance night)
