I'll be at the Winter NAMM again this year. As always, I'm really looking forward to it.

Anyone else going to be there? I'll be at the Ohana booth in Hall E, so come and say hello.

For the last couple of years there has been a meet-up for a jam session on the Saturday evening after the show.

It would be great to do the same thing again.

Anyone interested, meet on the grassy knoll out side the front of the Anaheim Convention Centre on West Katella Avenue at 6.00pm on Saturday 21st January 2012. See you there.

I have had that 2 years running, Ron. I may try something different this year.

For those that have never been to a NAMM Jam, we usually visit Bubba Gump's afterwards.

Jeez, this is like all the famous ukesters in one venue.

For us worker bees who will be slaving at the grindstone for "da Man" just to get a measly paycheck, barely enough for a pizza pie and a set of Aquilas, please make a few videos and post them on the youtube.

It'd be encouraging to see how the glitterati of the four string world let it all hang. Cheers!

I'll be at NAMM, but it is for work, don't know if I'll be able to get away to come out and play. I work at a store, so I've got a lot of appointments, then the after parties :)

Is there a place to meet if it rains? It is looking pretty rainy right now, but it might clear later (30% chance of rain forecast for later).

Perhaps there's an overhang on the convention center building. Maybe meet near the part of the building that is nearest the grassy knoll.

Namm jam will be happening tonight. I think the uu guys will be working on NAMM things but we plan to go and hang there around 6-630. Going to be at the same spot as last year, if it rains I think we have a open room at a local hotel. Hoping to see everyone there tonight!! If you need anything feel free to pm me.

It went good. We met at the Grassy Knoll with Aldrine, Aaron, Kahai, Doug and fam, Rob, Mim, Tim, Nick, Sally and fam, The Mainland's Lori and me and jammed a few songs. The UU guys went to work on video and we took the group back to our hotel and jammed for a couple of hours after that. Def. a lot of fun.

Your presence was missed, Mr. Middleton. Mim kept begging for the men to speak british to her.

Hope you are doing better.

Ken,

I didn't make the jam session but I saw Matt and John on Sunday and they didn't go since Joe Sousa has said it was cancelled due to rain. I guess there was some miscommunication somewhere along the line.

I did stop by the Ohana booth and introduced myself and Daniel(?) and Stephanie will be sending you a photo of all us together in the booth. I had a a great time. Thank you to Ohana Ukulele.

I did not :P.... but I did make a couple guys take a "turn" with me!

And yes Ken, you were missed. Everytime I went by the Ohana booth I said, "It is just not the same without Ken here!!!" But Stephanie took good care of me (though I still need to write her to pester her about sending me a stock list... haha!)

Maybe I will see you earlier than next year. I maaaaay be going over to England sometime this year. I have enough rewards points. Just gotta figure out what festival I want to go to :)!

There really is only one big festival: The Ukulele festival Of Great Britain in Cheltenham. Come to that one. The Re-Entrants, Gerald Ross, Hal, Winin Boys, Ukulollo, etc. It will be great. Hopefully see you there. Here's a link:
