Nice to have you and Junior represent the Ukulele Underground, Steve. It's a worldwide movement. Give us a full report and photos on the show! Ric

Well, super cool Will brought a copy of the newspaper article and got you know who to sign it at the Kennedy Center today!! Yes, Jake S. signed right by Will's picture. Can't get much better than that.

This is the lead-in to a great article in the Philadelphia Inquire:

"Tiptoeing no more

A revival of the sweet-sounding ukulele is stimulating Philadelphia's music scene, with classical, jazz and even rock sounds.

By Carolyn Davis

Inquirer Staff Writer

What do Arthur Godfrey, Tiny Tim and Will Brown have in common?

If you're of a certain age, you can guess what it is. If you're 13-year-old Will Brown, your face takes on a just-sucked-lemons expression when Tim - may he and "Tiptoe Through the Tulips" rest in peace - is mentioned...."
