Well the seattle uke fest had a small turn out but it had some big stars showing their faces. Me(ukulele_junkie), Angela(Jello), Terrell, and JumpingFlea all were there taking workshops and gettin to know a few other uke players from around the NW. Also, might have a few more members from the northwest, we told the UU site facts about a dozen a times. Some people actually already knew about us, some important people such as the Head of SUPA (Seattle Ukulele Players Association) which they told me is quite a big thing which i had no clue, and also the event planner that planned the concerts for James Hill and Herb Ohta.

Here are a few pics belows. Well just wanted to show everyone bigs things should be coming from the NW soon.

Looks like you had fun! I wonder what the uke festivals around here are like, should put more work into visiting them...

You guys should demand a cut in the UU business... or else get namecards that say "Manager for Aldrine and K-Town Heroes". Don't forget the oversized sunglasses and big Havana cigar next time ;)

Actually this shop began as a dulcimer shop and repair and grew to a large acoustic instrument paradise. Those are a hell of a lot of ukes tho :biglaugh:

yeahh, I've never seen more than 1 uke in a store (guitar center) before. I would be like a kid in a candy shop there.

I'm so envious! I've met James Hill, have seen Ohta Jr., but never Ohta-San Sr. = my main ukulele influence!

That is so great. At our meetups, we have to compete with punters who are wondering what our little guitars our. Yall are at another level!
