Hey all! So, we had so much fun a couple of weeks ago that we're doin' it again on November 23rd. That's a Sunday- from noon to 4pm. It will be at the same place: The Poor House Bistro (91 S. Autumn Street, San Jose). The staff there raved about us to management and they want us to come back.

I know I'll be less nervous this time around having met a bunch of you in person already.

So, pack up your ukes and head to San Jose on November 23rd! I'd love to triple the attendance this time, so we can triple the fun! I should have some videos up soon of the last jam...

See you all in SJ!

Well, I requested it off, so hopefully I'll make it this time! Hopefully I can drag along some north bay braddas.

Shoots, I guess I betta practice now...

Should we pick some choices for songs? That way we can print out music and let everyone have a copy to try an sing along wid. Just a suggestion.

Yes!!! That's a great idea!

Of course, Ed!! If anyone wants to do a more "formal" set like that, let me know. But, like last time, we'll open the mic up if anyone wants to do a song. We all got a lot less shy after some beers, and just about everyone got on stage at one point or another! And I'll ask Jay for more microphones this time. Two wasn't quite enough.

I'll sing "Stuck on You" as covered by Ekolu (cuz thas the only song that I can kinda do)

I'm coming from campus too. Last time I took the light rail from the Paseo de San Antonio station. It's the one heading towards Winchester, get off at the San Fernando station. From there it's just about a block or two. Let me know if you need better directions.

haha....well to be honest I really only know the 3 pieces I played last time...and also the star spangled banner. I'll see if I can't get at least one other piece to play so I don't start sounding like a record player.

I hope so! I'll tell him that was a huge hit! Oh, and a side note: he and I were talking yesterday- he wants to do a Barack n Blues party the weekend after Election night. If anyone's interested! It's not a Uke thing, but he always has amazing live blues on the patio!

I'll be sure to get the Kona Beer message to him! $3/bottle or $10 for a bucket of four!!! That was rad.

Ed! Love the videos! Brought it back like it was the same day! Dave's videos are still coming... we've been a smidge busy....

SO! NEXT SAN JOSE UKE JAM/MEET UP/FUN/DRINK FEST IS APPROACHING!

I've been swamped with work, but am so excited about this one!!!

Let's get a list going- who's coming? who wants to perform? I know the amazing Russell and the amazing Ed and Eric are in... anyone else? I'm gonna do some stuff.... god help me..... and I hope to see Young perform as well! jjsdad- the song you did last time was hysterical- we hope you'll do more this time and repeat that last one.

And, like last time, we'll open the mic for anyone who gets brave after a couple of beers.

Heather,

Thanks again for organizing this. You're totally awesome and can really sing! Your band really rocked, too! But, to be honest, I was very intimidated after that. :( Or maybe I was really intimidated because you put me right after Young. ;) That guy is amazing and I hope someone recorded him and posts on You Tube. :bowdown:

But, I had a great time listening to wonderful acts at all different levels. I even enjoyed embarrassing myself, too. Thanks again!

To everyone else,

Great to meet you all again. I'm really bad with names, so if I didn't I address you by name, I'm really sorry. Thanks Trina for using your iPhone and thanks Jamie and Heather for the scrap paper so I could log onto the Internet and write down the words to Spam Musubi which I printed out earlier but forgot at home. With your help, I was still able to embarrass myself once again.

Hope to see everyone again!

Jeremy! You were fabulous last time, and equally so this time! The Spam Masubi song was hysterical! Made me wanna run out and get some. Oh, how I love that stuff! And the Hawaiian number was beautiful! I'll see if I can get Dave to post the vids today. We watched the whole thing last night when we got home right off the camera. What a good day. Thanks so much for coming! You were a highlight of the day! -Heather

DECEMBER 21ST IS NEXT!!!! A hard day, I know. Christmas week. But it's just a heads up for the masses!
