Argh! I would love to be there on Saturday, but sadly I've got a prior family obligation that will prevent that.

But I'll for sure be there in March! Maybe by then I'll actually be able to play a little. :)

Hi, all. I'm out of town--again--and as I look at the 1st week schedule, it may be April by the time I can come. So, keep the ball rolling. I'm looking forward to meeting Lisa, Ukerob and Irishuker, seeing Tim again, and the entire four string noodling gang.

(p.s. Tim, if you want to grab some pizza and beer together at Lucca's around 530pm before I hit Leon Redbone on Thursday, Feb 9, just clue me in or email me. Cheers' bro.)

The Jam made the online version of the Pantagraph (http://www.pantagraph.com/news/local/ukulele-jam-session-features-musical-variety/article_f6191e80-657c-11e1-ad4f-0019bb2963f4.html).

That was really fun! I had a great time, and while I was mostly just fumbling along, at least I did know some of the chords. :) Thanks so much for putting it together, and I'm really looking forward to the next one.

And my grateful thanks to the kind soul who saved my car from getting towed. Note to self: NEVER PARK IN THE BACK! I swear, I never saw any signs saying that parking there was off-limits. :(

I don't think I am going to be able to come this time.

Have you thought about broadcasting the Jam on the mini jam channel? Set up your lap top, point the camera in the right direction and let it roll.
