That's great! Dom has a very high level of talent and generosity. Very well deserved.
Have fun Dom! You'll be great on that stage.

03-07-2012, 05:25 PM
Dom, you've shared and given so much to the uke community, and you're no slouch of a player either. I'm really happy for you! :)

03-07-2012, 05:32 PM
Richly deserved! Open where - Hawaii?

03-07-2012, 05:32 PM

Ditto this for me!! VIDEO!!! :)

03-07-2012, 05:45 PM
I agree with everything said here. Well done, Dom.

03-07-2012, 05:54 PM
Richly deserved! Open where - Hawaii?

The event is for the film screening of his new documetary film to be held in San Francisco at the historic Castro Theater.

Thanks so much to all of you for your support and kind words. I think the stars were just aligned as each year in March my company has our annual Leadershop Conference in South San Francisco. Turns out I was already scheduled to be down there and Wednesday was our free night where people could do whatever they wanted for the evening.

I was hoping to finish the last two video segments for The Unknown but with the Reno/Tahoe fest coming on the heels of this trip I may not get to it for a bit longer.
Thanks again UUers.

Dom, Ho'omaika'i 'ana and rightly deserved.

I, for one, am in no rush for the last two videos as I'm totally happy practicing through what you've already taught. So do your thing and get to The Unknown when the dust settles a bit. Congrats again Dom!

Hey Dom
Congratulations! Not many would be good enough to open for Jake, and I am so glad the honor went to you! You are definitely ready for it!

Way to go Dom. I guess I'll be packing my Tabs shirt for the concert! Would you prefer me throwing boxers or briefs at you on stage? ;)

03-07-2012, 07:01 PM
Congrats Dom, couldn't have picked a more deserving guy!

03-07-2012, 07:02 PM
Woot! Wooot!!!

03-07-2012, 07:04 PM
Congrats Dom!

I was anxiously waiting to see who they picked but I had a feeling that you were going to be picked. Great playing!

03-07-2012, 07:04 PM
Happiness abounds.

Well done, Dom.

I shook your hand at UWC last year. This year, yer gettin' a hug!

03-07-2012, 07:37 PM
Holy CROW! Excellent, Dom! Congrats!

03-07-2012, 07:39 PM
Occasionally in this world, the one who wins actually deserves it. This is one of those times. Dom is gonna be awesome. :)

03-07-2012, 07:40 PM
Congratulations on a well deserved win, Dominator! I've got some spy video of you practicing on your solid body double baritone 6-string ukulele:


03-07-2012, 07:44 PM
Congrats Dom :D!!!!

Next -- We're gonna run you for mayor of Roseville.
Your star is on the rise. Gonna be hard to keep TABS on you.

03-08-2012, 06:14 AM

03-08-2012, 06:28 AM
That's awesome dude! I am very happy for you! Way to go!

03-08-2012, 06:32 AM
This is news of a most excellent fancy. Dom does the best transcription/arrangements I have found on the web to date.

03-08-2012, 06:32 AM
Congratz dom and to all the other finalists!

03-08-2012, 07:23 AM
Congratulations, Dom, well deserved.

I thought the contest should have been to see who gets to open for Dominator, who of course is opening for Jake.

03-08-2012, 07:31 AM
Thanks everybody. My wife pinched this morning and told me it was true.
Hopefully, today I will get the details so I can start to prepare.

I too want to congratulate all the other finalists. It was a huge honor just to be selected to move into round two. I know Annier had booked her trip last week and I was hoping all the finalists would be able to attend the event. I communicated with Chris last night and he won't be able to make it due to travel costs etc. I wish I was in a position to fix that but I'm not. I hope all the other finalists will be able to attend. It will be good to see Monique again and nice to meet the rest of you.

I did want to add that each of the finalists would have done a wonderful job in opening for Jake. All of them should be proud of making the final cut and I enjoyed each and every one of their performances.

Hoping you can make it to Hukilau after the show Dom.
