    Pono Baritone, Koaloha Concert and Bradford Donaldson Soprano

    This is a heads up for three ukuleles I'm selling. After wandering around the different sizes I have gravitated to the tenor as my preferred model and after procrastinating as long as possible, I've finally decided my closet could use more room. Since the most action these ukuleles see is when...

    Moe Dixon and Mya-Moe #1

    I had the pleasure of running into Moe Dixon who was about to play for an educational fund raiser at the Hood River Waterfront Park yesterday. I haven't heard Moe in person for many years so I was quite excited and pleased my wife could hear him live for the first time. While we were talking...

    Bridge Question

    I recently restrung my Koaloha tenor and when I pulled the last string off, the bridge insert fell off. Well I didn't expect that and didn't take note if the angle should face the bottom of the uke (as shown) or if it should be reversed and face the nut. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    We attended another great evening with the 808 Uke Jams class in Kihei last night. Always a highlight of our trips to Maui. I hate to tell you all about them - the church was almost full of people from around the world! One thing I love about these classes is that Kumu Kealoha mixes in...

    Paul McCartney played an uke

    Went to Paul McCartney in Seattle last night. Great concert with nearly three hours of music spanning his entire career, from The Beatles to Wings to his solo music. He even started "Something in the Way She Moves" on a Gibson ukulele given to him by George Harrison. Hope this link works.

    Ukulele Lessons or kanikapila in San Jose/Sunnyvale?

    My sister is taking up the ukulele and is looking for some external motivation. She tried to learn a few years ago and failed - due to her class being all about theory, learning chords and no fun. She gave her ukulele to me which got me started and now with others in our family playing she...
