Hi guys!!!! Yes, I finally get my hands on a Maccaferri Islander!!!! I wanted one but they always coming up very expensive on the evil bay....but hey, I found one!!!!

And, mine is in a beautiful bright yellow!!!!! I don't know if it's me but I don't see often this color. I just love how bright it it,,,it'a like a sunshine!!!

So here's a little clip that I did to try this uke out as well as the pics of my new little baby... Ok, it doesn't sound like my MP tenor, but I think it has a decent tone!!!

Nope. I just acquired a red-swirled one which is a beaut. I know they made blue and green too. Probably more.

Wow fumanshu, I had no idea that there was a Montreal Uke Club! Had I known about UU or the existence of the Montreal club, I'd have contacted someone when I flew up there from Hawaii to watch UFC 114.

That is a real nice looking instrument, and nice swing piece you played!

Hi ukestah! Thanks a lot for your kind words. The club is quite new, I founded it and started it only like 3-4 months ago but it,s quite a big success because the club is growing so fast that I need a new place for our meeting because we don,t have enough room for the members now!!!

So you flew from Hawaii to Montreal to watch UFC 114??!!! man, you must be a hardcore fan of UFC!!!!

But, feel free to contact me if you ever drop to Montreal, we'll do some jamming with you!!!

Thanks

Yeah, pretty hardcore fan of UFC. My friend and his fiance live in Montreal, so my wife and I flew up there. The guys watched UFC, the girls did shopping. Weather was nice too, 50F, but did go as low as 30F. This was in early May. Chenoy's Deli was awesome! ;)

I will definitely be visiting Montreal again, but not until next year. I'd definitely be down for a jam session!
