It's that time again! San Jose is about to rock out Uke Style again!!

Sunday, February 22nd, noon to ???

We had such fun in my backyard a couple of weeks ago, I think we'll do it again here. We'll have the same general format as we normally do at the Poor House Bistro, with PA, and scheduled performances, but just move it all to my backyard.

Warning the neighbors now, because this jam is going to be the biggest baddest one yet!

More details to follow soon, but be aware! This one is NOT TO BE MISSED!!! Trust me.

I already have some mega, supersized surprises in store for everyone!

Don't miss out. Mark it on your calendar now, and check this thread often in the next week for updates!

Please post here if you think you'll attend, so I can PM my address to you when it gets closer. And so you're not totally in the dark, location wise, I live very near San Jose Airport.

Can't wait to see everyone again!! xoxo- Heather

Eo Heather,

I should be down to show up. As much as I want it to rain (sturgeon fishing's been great for me in the rain), I wouldn't mind a little break from it next Sunday for this.

Awww, hope you can make it Neal (don't know how you spell it- my brother's middle name is Neal..that's how we spell it).... and I hope the rain all week doesn't make my backyard a swamp! -Heather

I'm planning to be there for sure. I'm gigging with the rock band in Pleasanton the night before on the 21st so I plan to just stay down there and attend the jam the next day.

I think Heather is planning to come out to the gig which is at the Main Street Brewery in Pleasanton. So if you live in the area come out and check out the band and give her someone to party with.

And as Heather says, this jam and get together is one not to be missed. I wouldn't think of letting the cat out of the bag but she really does have a couple nice surprises in store.
See you there,

Hey all! All the rain has made my yard very soggy. And it may rain on Sunday too.

So! What we'll do is move the jam location to my art studio/warehouse which is around the corner from my house. There is plenty of room there and we are almost finished with a complete remodel, so it's looking pretty cute.

I'm getting everything all set for a really cool day of ukes, friends, drinks, food, and super surprises! And I'll be PMing the address to all in the next couple of days.

Looking forward Sunday. It's going to be a fantastic day!!!

Okay everyone! Bring some cash- 'cause we are raising money for Ukes for Kids again!!!

This time it's a gorgeous mahogany Mainland Concert Ukulele with soft case. Raffle tickets will be $5, and some lucky one will go home with a brand new uke. I've been playing it for the last two hours, and it is really special!

We'll be a smallish (20 to 30) people crowd, so your chances of winning are very good! Break the bank a little, and buy a bunch of tickets. Ukes for Kids is a worthy cause, and you can read more about it here: http://www.ukuleleguild.org/ufk.php#about

Besides all that, we will have so much fun on Sunday and MORE BIG SURPRISES! You have to be there to find out! See you soon!

Seriously, let me know if you're coming so I can PM you the address! All are welcome, and so are all your friends!

Also, don't forget that Dominator's band is playing in Pleasanton the night before, on Saturday. 9pm to about midnight. I'm going!! PM me if you need details.

so should we satrt thinking up of excuses in case someone has to call in sick to stay and play? i getting my list ready. ;)
here is emotion's top 10 excuses to call into work for a san jose uke jam...
10. anal gluacoma...cuz you cant see your a$$ coming into work.
9. epic-demic... just too epic to miss
8. UAS... your addiction to an uke makes you want to win the raffel(seek help. because i am winning it.. repeat!)
7. severe arthritis... you will be experiencing ukers cramp from all the freaking chord changes happening that day.
6. buss-ted... russ buss will be in the building.. hello mcfly. haha
5. emotional breakdown... because i will be in the building. duh.
4. stuck miles away with no ride... you will be stuck in your seat while the Miles Family Band plays.. haha
3. bad heather conditions... its raining and heather opened up her studio for us to play so we dont get our ukes wet.
2. dominated... totally overwhelmed by the playing styles of Dominator and now you are stuck in a trance and cant move.

and now the number 1 excuse to give because you are calling in to work to be at the san jose uke jam is...
1. hungover.. you will be hungover the next day and need to prepare for it. warning.. may cause extreme diarrhea... hahaha

Eric, you are TOO much!!! I think the #1 reason to attend is to enjoy the comedy stylings of E-Money. Wanna laugh all day? Spend some time with this guy.

Another good reason- Good eats! Have a table full of hawaiian yummies coming from Hukilau. Hooray Spam Masubi!!

See you Sunday!

Oh, I'll bring my cajon, some cowbell, tambourine and cabasa, and my bass guitar & amp. This will be sweet!

On a side note (not tryin to hijack - its kinda relevant cuz its in San Ho), Rex Navarrete is showing at The Improv tonight and tomo night. For those of you pinoys, friends of pilipinos, or just enjoy a good laugh, pls check it out!

21+/ $18 at the door (but must buy 2 items = drank/food).

His openers are hilarious, and Rex has some new/hilarious material. I saw the show last night and my cheeks are still sore from all the laughs.

We wound up around 7:30 ish... So fun. How can you go wrong with one guy passed out under the table- ED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (the new guy) Loves me some Ed. Comedy solid gold today!! You'll hate yourself tomorrow, Ed, but know that you were a source of endless entertainment all day. J'adore you.

And Deach, my partner in crime, was here. Oh my goodness, keeping that a secret was killing me!!! And him too, I know. What a trooper, Deach flew across country this morning, and only to fly back tonite. He came here just for us, and we love him even more for it (if that's possible).

What a great day. I'm still on cloud nine, even though it's really quiet here now with everyone gone. I'm missing my buddies. Wish it could have lasted forever!

Amazing day. If you weren't here, you wish you were. It was awesome. I have no idea how I will top this one for next time. But I'll try. It's a tall order. Might be impossible.

Deach, you are a freaking saint. Love you from here to no where!!!!!

Especially to Heather for putting so much time into making this happen (and for scheduling it at a time when I was already down that way), Russ Buss for bringing out the PA etc. And the Deachinator, what else can be said. It was GREAT to meet you as well as all the other new folks that were there.

Dominator and Deach (D&D without the 12 sided dice). great food, awesome music. enough beer and vodka to make the memories blurry. Ed passed out under the table. E-money wins another uke in the raffle (punkass:)). surprise fluke. rain. spam.

You're welcome Russ. I actually got to drive the Russ Bus, so it was an honor. ;)

Dominator, it was a pleasure to see you again and hear you play. Hope to see you again soon.

Deach, I was shaking after I introduced myself to you and you said something like "I know who *you* are...". I still can't believe that I got to meet you in person. Unbelievable.

To all the newcomers and to those I haven't met before (and also to those I have meet before), I'm glad to meet you and hear you play. There was so much awesome talent that I'm always really embarrassed to get up there and play a few songs myself.

I think Russ summed this up with these three words: "best jam ever!"

So, let's all repeat:

Thank you Heather, best Jam ever!
Thank you Heather, best Jam ever!
Thank you Heather, best Jam ever!

Even got to tinker on his custom Big D uke. What an honor. Thanks Dom! super duper good times. And thanks Young for escorting me to Dom's show, and for driving, and for the conversation, and for the beers. You're awesome.

Back atcha E-Money. I'd have no jam without you and DrunkEd, J-String and A-Mix. I remember the first time I met you. You guys showed up an hour early to the first jam. (the Miles' boys are always early. Super early.) I had been emailing with Ed about it. When I met you, I said "are you Ed"? And you said, "no, I'm his brother Eric". Nice. The rest is history. Love all you guys so much. You make the SJ Jam what it is, what it has become. Thanks for being the MC. It was nice to relax a little and sit back. You cracked me up all day- and everyone else too. xoxo -Heado

Even got to tinker on his custom Big D uke. What an honor. Thanks Dom! super duper good times. And thanks Young for escorting me to Dom's show, and for driving, and for the conversation, and for the beers. You're awesome.

Whirlwind weekend, filled with fantasticness, in every direction. :bowdown:

Heather, shame on me for not thanking you properly for your hospitality before I hit the road. I enjoyed our time together after the gig. One more beer and I would have just slept through the jam from the beginning instead of waiting till the end to pass out like our buddy Ed :eek:.

The food was great and it was just loads of fun. I get such gratification seeing the progress of what I refer to as "my students" that are learning Jake's arrangements. Young had only been working on Let's Dance for a few weeks and did a great job. His version of Touch just floored me as he takes the arrangement and makes it his own.

Another one of my virtual "students" was there that I got to meet for the first time (Trevor aka Cleavacheva). He didn't play this time but he will at the next jam. He is very good and I hope I can be there to see him when he makes his debut at the SJ Jamz.

Been a long day at the day job. Time for some ZZZZZZZZZ.

No problem for Saturday. I still have much to do to repay you for Sunday. I think the next challenge is to get someone like Aldrine or Jake to show up! At this rate, I expect it!

smiley and janet are straight good people. i hang out there weekly, even though i got no money -- playing `ukulele, talk story and listen to sharks games. good selection (including UU's own mainland `ukuleles). just go and jam...

heather does it again! best jam ever! so many great moments. met a lot of cool people. Dominator and Deach (D&D without the 12 sided dice). great food, awesome music. enough beer and vodka to make the memories blurry. Ed passed out under the table. E-money wins another uke in the raffle (punkass:)). surprise fluke. rain. spam.

thanks for putting together the awesome surprise-filled jam heather!

thanks jeremy and alden for transporting my drunk ass back to san francisco.:cheers:

Let's take a bike ride, Ed!! Black Betty is waiting! Can fit our ukes in her basket. - wow. - That sounded super dupe's on the dirty side.....:rolleyes:

By the way, I've found an appropriate handle for you: "PMDE". Translation-
Ed + full cup of vodka with splash of soda or 2 or 3 = Potty Mouth Drunk Ed. And we love him. So priceless.

(nice memory, Deacher. That Bloody Mary didn't dilute your brain cells in the least! And I tried to liquor you up, believe me!!!).
