I considered it when I first discovered they were going to be there but it's just too far for one night's entertainment. If I wasn't wrapped around the axle at work right now and could actually make it a three-day trip I'd probably have jumped on tickets because, near as I can figure, that's the closest they've come to where I live.

Nope, they are coming to Houston on the 20th of November. Only 35 minutes from the house.......

Just caught them in Chico, California Thursday night. Great show! They did the best version (and brought meaning back to) "Tip Toe Through The Tulips" that I have ever heard.

Really?! I didn't see that on the tour calendar. I might have to get tickets for that. Although...I'm not crazy about Houston - I'd almost rather drive to Kansas city than face Houston traffic again (my oldest and her family used to live there). :)

I saw them in Davis, CA, last Friday night with fellow UUer wadleysf. It was a great concert. We went home afterward, but I heard later that some members of the UOGB mingled with the crwod afterward at both their Davis and Palo Alto concerts, so be on the lookout.

I saw them last night in Boulder, Colorado and they were fantastic. In addition to their great musicianship, they keep the banter between songs quite fun and entertaining. They mock themselves and the music they play with equanimity and I cannot believe how fast the 2 hours went by. Yes, most of their work can be seen (for free) online, but every uke fan should have the opportunity to see them live. I sincerely hope you enjoy the show in KC as much as I did.
