View Full Version : Ukulele gods were similing on me

Last night in Princeton NJ, bought standing room only tickets for the Jake show a couple of weeks ago. Show was completely sold out. Stand in the back for a couple of tunes (including Blue Roses Falling, during which you could have heard a pin drop) and then one of the ushers comes up to me and asks if I want a seat. I say sure and she leads me and this other guy down to sit in the THIRD ROW! Like ten feet from the stage. What an amazing show! Incredible to be that close and watch the master at work.
Got me meet him after the show too, so humble and nice to be around. Signed everything in sight and took pictures, talked to kids who were just starting out and even strummed a few ukes in the lobby. What a great Christmas present.
Thanks to the uke gods for thinking of me!
