Hi Hank,
Do you ever attend the Upper Valley Uke Club in Hanover?

No I don't, Thinking about get a club started in Mtn. Washington Valley area. East/West travel in NH bites.

Really wish I could go to this! Jon is an amazing musician and I've learned one or two of his arrangements. Unfortunately I've been asked to take over on drums for a friend's band that night as his drummer will be out of town. Have a great time Fran!

@Hank - Yup, East-West travel is a drag in Vermont too!

@Nuprin - Jon was awesome! And there's a huge interest in ukulele in Montpelier! I think we had 21 people. As you know that's a huge crowd in this part of the world!
