I loved the weekend...It was exhausting and very hot, but there was such a wonderful Aloha spirit that flowed through the two days. I was able to meet a lot of UU friends and meet new friends as well. (By the way, the apples ran out by Sunday morning). I had two great neighbors, Toni on one side and Mike (MGM) on the other..so it was the best "neighborhood" to be in!

Yes Mike is the greatest Ukulele person I know so much knowledge and he knows everybody.....he still loves to pass on any info he can to help people with their ukes...so much energy for an old man(haha had to put it in Mike) but no one like Mike when it comes to Ukes..

Thanks both of you for the pictures...very nice

I was fortunate enough to witness some impromptu jam sessions with some of the workshop instructors. It was amazing to witness them trading solos back and forth and having so much fun while doing it. This weekend was easily the most fun I've ever had at a uke meetup/workshop/festival.

Great people.


Good times!

That's my booth "Silva Studio"....I'm an artist, and I've been working on a painting series with a musical theme for the past year or so... The ukulele continues to inspire my painting..and the more I paint...the more I play..... My booth had paintings, prints, tee-shirts...and at least for a time free Gravenstein apples...

Agree, was the most fun I had yet at the festival just walking around and chatting with everyone. Good to see you Gary. Looked for you end of day but I wanted to get home to air conditioning! I was melting around 2pm!

Thanks so much for posting this for us folks who couldn't make it to the left coast.

So glad to be able to enjoy the pictures in the comfort of my air conditioning and slippers.

No worries Jay, I was in a workshop. I'll see you soon I'm sure. Take care!
