hi there guys,

my future-wife and i are getting married this coming march (12th) on oahu.. and i'm in charge of hiring music for the wedding reception.. so what i'm looking for is a ukulele player (that can sing) that is capable of playing particular vocal-jazz songs (songs by nat king cole, billie holiday, etc.. we would create a list of songs we'd like to hear in advance) for about a 30-45 minute set of music.. near waikiki beach..

so, i figured this message board would be the best place to ask - is anyone interested in playing? (or would know another player that may be!?)

if so, here's my email address: ryancurtisoneal@aol.com

would love to hear from you!

Would you be willing to fly them in from Nashville? :D

(Congrats on your impending nuptials, BTW!)

Glen is a great pianist and a mean ukulele player who is an authority on show tunes. He may be willing to work for you. His books are great insights into jazz uke for beginners.
