Aloha everyone!

We're starting to plan out our yearly tour and this year we decided to broaden our horizons and make our way up north. So anyone in the Oregon and Washington states, prepare yourself for UU!

This thread is simply to get some ideas from the local folks from those areas as far as where to do a show or have a workshop. Any nearby uke clubs that wanna host a night of UU? Venues in general. We know there's a bunch of you in that area! Help us come out to see you :D

The goal is to come during the month of October. So post your ideas and thought on this thread and let's make it happen!

These are probably on the top of your NorCal Bay Area list but I'd suggest the Santa Cruz Ukulele Club of course and Mike DaSilva's shop. Also SUPA or Dusty Strings in Seattle.

Would you consider making a trip to Vancouver, BC?? We have a thriving ukulele community. I"m sure we could set up something if you're interested. If you're able to come up, I could set the wheels in motion and find a workshop space and time for you. Also, I could find a place for you to perform if you want to. Please let me know what you would require.

The Vancouver Ukulele Circle has a large membership. I'm sure we could set aside a special UU evening if that's what you want.

Sweet! We're looking forward to making it up there as soon as we find a venue. Know of any place that has live music that could host us?

Dusty strings definitely and I'll try and contact the SUPA to see what their schedule is like. NorCal is still up in the air but it's always nice to play at Mike's

Hey Aldrine,

Check ( seattleukulele.org ) and contact John Leder at supafb@q.com.

John is our Chairman of the Board and we have a monthly site (Phinney Neighborhood)
which can easily host a UU event.

Hope to see you in Oct, and even sooner at the Uke Fest at Kapiolani park on the 17th!

Keep uke'in',

Oh, and bring UU stickers!

You should come to the hot and dry east side.
Come to Kennewick, WA. And come to Ted Brown music. Then do a show at Tagaris Winery.

In NORCAL, what about the Cue in Concord? Patrick Landeza has been hosting some great Hawaiian performer these past few months. Lots of slack key and ukulele acts. Usually at least one, sometimes more, each month. The venue holds about 100+, and is a great place to catch a show.

His website is http://www.landezapresents.com/

Aldrine we definitely need to get you somewhere in the Tacoma/Olympia area. I know folks from 2 groups there Monday Ukulele Ohana and OLUPA. There is a lot of interest and we can make it happen. Let me make some contacts and we'll get back to you
