the show was so awesome that i'll have to see these guys perform again real soon. maybe sunday! haha.

it was great to meet the UU guys (who were not only nice, but super cool to hang out with). and also, great to meet some fellow UU members that i haven't met before. even met a couple of youtube uke players. awesome night, great music, beer, and good company! until next time, here are some photos. i don't have the best camera but it will do for now.

by the way, which one were you Kyle??? you should have hopped in for the group shot!

Oh and here's a video of Dom and Aldrine jamming after the show. x] Those two are simply amazing.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TiRKvUe7hrk

Anyone have suggestions on how to put the video up for everyone to see? It's gonna be waay too long to put up on YouTube or something. Or I guess I could split up every 10 mins since that's the limit on YT.. bleh, what do you guys think?

Thanks for putting on the show! My jjs at home were wondering why would anyone want to watch someone play ukulele for $20? (Or was it $15?? I paid Mike $20 and he didn't give me any change...) But, the show was priceless. Aldrine and Rayan played a bunch songs from the CD and a number of other songs, Dom and Aldrine jammed to Breezin, and they took some video for uke got mail. Russ, totally stumped Aldrine with his "What superpowers would you want to have?".

The small venue and getting to hang out with everyone made the night very special indeed. Now, I'm afraid to pick up my uke because I want to cherish the sounds of greatness and not listen to my own attempts at playing... :(

Oh, and Russ you're too much with your gold spray painted $10 uke! :biglaugh:

Wow! What a great night. It was really great to see everyone again and to meet the other UU members that I had not yet previously had the opportunity to meet in person. I think Mike was pleasantly surprised at the turnout and I think we did a great job of representing UU.

I was fortunate enough to have seen Aldrine play live before but it was extra special having Ryan there with him. As I mentioned, it was 100 times better in person than the UU open mics (which are always a blast).

Most of my pics are pretty much the same as what’s been posted so far but I have a couple good ones that I will post shortly.

I think the best thing is to just separate them into each song and upload them individually. More work but that's what I guess I would do unless someone else has a better mouse trap. I think I have 3, maybe 4 songs. I didn't get "heartbeat/dragon" and I would like to watch that one again.

I will get those pics off my camera and get them uploaded in a few.

Hopefully I'll make it nice and early tomo so I wont miss a thing!

Man, I'm still thinking about last nights show. One of my faves was Uke On A Stick. Can you believe the guy wrote that in Spanish Class? I wanna hear what he wrote in math! I wish we could have stayed for the jammimg after but it was getting kinda late and we had to get the girls home. My kids have been wearing their new UU shirts all day. I'll post some pics of them on Monday. Rayan should sing more. He did VERY well last night. Anybody know the name of the song he sang last night? I wish I could have met more of the folks from the forum. I was kinda shy and no one know who's who unless you hear their User Name. BTW, if anyone's wondering who I was, me and my daughter got on stage during Uke Got Mail.

I have been watching UU tutorials and Aldrine on You Tube for several months now. I send bits and pieces to all of my friends. I even sent Manny the Rooster's Cribs video out to my friends. All of you at UU make the sharing of the ukulele and music in general more accessible and fun.

A word about Mike DaSilva, a man with a generous outlook on life and a talent for making the highest quality ukuleles in sound and appearance. I am lucky enough to also be a member of the Berkeley Ukulele Club where Mike so generously shares his space. He's had so many great players perform at his large studio / workshop in Berkeley.

Thanks for the great concert with Aldrine and Rayan. Aldrine really has a great performance personality. I also enjoyed having the personal question and answer portion after the concert on stage. You're building a great UU community.

Thanks

Jeff the NorCalRooster :music:

Welcome to the forum Jeff! The love of the 'uke is a powerful thing! The time and dedication that Aldrine, Ryan, Aaron, and the other staff is truly unmatched. The same goes for Mike's generosity! Which is why I was more than happy to fork out the $20, despite missing the first 45 mins of the show.

Keep spreadin that 'uke aloha!

Aldrine can go down the street from the San Diego Seminar, as there is a Jollibee on Mira Mesa Boulevard.



Those red hotdogs are Martin Purefoods, available closeby where the UU dudes will be giving the San Diego workshop and concert. The store, Seafood City, is also on Mira Mesa Boulevard:
