You will definitely be an "extra, added attraction" - good to have you back in NorCal and I'll see you on the 2nd. floor.

You certainly will. I'm performing and giving 4 workshops. I'm looking forward to it. It will be my 3rd year.

Do ukulele makers / vendors come to the Hayward festival? I haven't been able to find any information on that.

Great news, Mike, that you can travel again! I hope you'll be at the Wine County Ukulele Festival this year. I'd love to go to the Reno festival, but I'll be performing at the NorCal Ukulele Festival that Sunday with the Kapalakiko Hawaiian Music Workshop Band. I keep hoping the two festivals will someday be scheduled for different weekends.

Kamaka has a booth at the NorCal Festival every year, and it looks like this year, KoAloha, Sonny D and Kala (who are all sponsors) will be there too. Santa Cruz luthier Tony Graziano (http://www.grazianoukuleles.com/)had a booth last year, as did Music Works from El Cerrito and Ukulele Source from San Jose, and I believe they'll be back. The festival usually posts a list of vendors on its website (http://www.ukulelefestivalnorcal.org/vendors.htm). It hasn't done that yet for this year, but it should within the next several days. At the moment, you can look at the list of sponsors on the festival poster (http://www.ukulelefestivalnorcal.org/2012Flyer.pdf).

Mark, I was hoping to see #635 in Reno as #615 will probably be my uke of choice.
We will be in Napa in the fall so I will see you there !!!

Me and my Dad and Grandpa are going. It should be alot of fun I am looking forward to it. I hope I see you around, my Dad bought my travel Kala from you. This is our third year going to the Reno Uke Fest. Last year we also went to the Nor Cal Ukulele Fest at Chabot College in Hayward. I played the big stage with my family and one song just me and my sister. I always play the open mic at Reno and look forward to playing again this year. Here is the video of me and my sister playing at the Nor Cal Fest:

MGM, I'll be attending and I'm bringing along my sister who's flying up from Molokai for this. Amazing she has to fly to the mainland for an ukulele festival.

Wish I could go, but I am looking forward to the Wine Country Napa Festival this year. Are there any dates out yet for the Napa festival? I can't seem to find anything on the web yet.

I don't think we will be a vendor at as many festivals this year, for a couple of reasons. 1– It is pretty expensive to travel, 2- We have already covered the nearby festivals, and most of the distant ones are really only a half day event, which takes too much time away from other business needs. The Reno one last year was well organized though, and we really enjoyed the Matt Dahlberg/ Victoria Vox / Boulder Acoustic Society concert. This year I need to concentrate on handling the increasing orders by getting more equipment and enhancing the website. I would have to increase my production by quite a bit to build up enough inventory to cover festivals and web store sales, along with increasing interest from retailers. It is a good problem to have, so I am not complaining.
