I didn't realize the UOGB was even around in 1988. Just noticed how many of them play using a pick....

So that's what it's called, I agree

Actually, that's a guitarrón (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guitarr%C3%B3n_mexicano). It looks like Simon Edwards from Fairground Atraction playing it.

I have never heard the word "vintage" associated with 1988 until now. God, I feel old. lol

Cool video. I love the UOGB and didn't realize it's been around for so many years. Thanks for posting.

No problem

Here's a another "vintage" clip, but is 1990 old enough to be vintage?

Great Vid! I really enjoyed it. Thanks for posting. Am I wrong or do I see a cross section of ukes, soprano, tenor, even a couple of baritones? So many using picks is an interesting note as well. Lozark at age 72 I am even more "vintage" than most of you, so I really enjoyed the travel back.

I thought the variety of ukulele types was interesting as well.
