Looks fantastic. Might have to visit my folks that weekend (they live in Milwaukee). ;-)

BTW, I have taken a right hand technique class with Lil' Rev and I give him the highest marks as an educator. He has a real gift for explaining things. Everybody at the SoCal Uke Mountain Retreat thought he was outstanding.

I will be there along with some other great vendors. So many wonderful enthusiasts, great performances, and there is always something to learn. All in all, a great day.

Rev just let me know that tickets are in short supply. Full day passes are limited to 150, so you should get on the ball to guarantee a spot. Tickets can be purchased at the link in the first post.

Sadly, it looks like work will get in the way of me being there all day this year. Super sad face. But I should be able, at the very least, to swing out for the after party, which is always awesome. Super happy face.

Only three months!

Best after party for a Uke Fest there is.

It's because of an after party that I now have a lap steel. Too much chatting with Gerald Ross did that.



Matt -- do you think it will sell out early? I am a total maybe until the last minute. Stuff, and weather play a big part on whether I can make it.

I'll see what I can find out, Sukie! Weather definitely becomes a bigger factor with it this late in the year...

Milwaukee Uke Fest VI and Low Gs. :^)

Is it OK to bring a Low G uke for the classes or is that too obnoxious?


Yep! Quite a few of our club members play low-G (I have one!) so bring it along!


We're just about a month out now.

Matty D rocks the after party. ;^)

I'm still checking into this Sukie. If we do sell out, I'll certainly post it here as soon as I know...
