You will be green with envy when you see these!

You are 1000000000% correct.

It's weird seeing seeso and Julia's legs. You usually only see the top half of them.

You're right. I was half expecting to see Jim Henson and Frank Oz under them!:D

So Seeso, was your head feeling cold so that you had to wear a wool beanie... while wearing shorts? :D

Yeah, I'm jealous. With those two, I would have only pretended to strum! :worship:

This was at the Bushman Ukulele Luau. I think it was held in Indiana. 3 or 4 day event.

Before we got there, I wondered if he'd wear it. It was in the 80s so it wasn't for warmth. Seeso's a slave to the fashions!

I only went on Saturday. Seeso said they had a blast on Friday evening. Rebbeca Zapen was there Friday only, so I missed her. :(

When Heather and I arrived at 3 pm, Julia and Seeso were jamming alone, sitting on top of a picnic table. I went to get my tickets (Thanks, Mike!) and made a bee-line straight back to the table to meet J&S.

Can you imagine what a thrill it is to approach somebody you admire - like seeso - and he looks up, recognizes me, and gives me a big hug? He introduced me to Julia who didn't know me from Adam (i could have said "Hey, remember? I left that snarky comment on your one video?"). But she was great - as you can tell from the photo.

There was a jam going on underneath a tent so we joined in (see the video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mRCtfth2tg0)). Everybody had a chance to shine - seeso, Julia, Matt Griffo and the other special guest were in the center. Luckily I remembered to bring some music so we had some easy songs to play - Hit the Road, Jack, When I saw her Standing There, etc. I got a change to solo on "5 ft 2" and was so excited I forgot the chord sequence! But that might have been my favorite moment.

The jam split so they could get on with their programs. Matt Griffo played some of his stuff, Julia sang a set -- working on 3 hours of sleep. She has such a powerful voice! She didn't even use a mic.

Then Heather and I had to leave :( I really wanted to hear seeso and Dustin &Philip play but time ran out. We had to get back to our doggy whose legs were probably crossed by then!

I'm sure seeso and dustin will tell you about the rest.

Cheers!

gotta say one of my favorite moments was when steve, matt, seeso, rob, jason, and julia joined us for "Baby Got Back"...

philip and i joke around that we'll be sad whenever we play it cuz its never gonna sound as good as it did on stage with everyone.

it was amazing.
