    Default Winter NAMM Show 2016 and SoCal UU LIVE mini tour!

    Aloha everyone!

    As usual we are about to head out for the annual Winter NAMM show coverage! All of the upcoming ukuleles and accessories will be on display at the show. It's gonna be a big year for ukulele as Kamaka is celebrating their 100 year anniversary. Also great new models and accessories are upon us. It really is a great time to be a uke player.

    I wanna know what you guys wanna see. What do you folks want me to ask? I want to be able to get your burning questions answered. Leave them on this thread and I'll refer to this when I'm doing the interviews.

    You can find the NAMM show coverage on our YouTube channel:
    https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCDg...XMzpug5HbD1bCA

    If you guys want to have a JAM by the grassy knoll, please let me know what night we should do it and what time. Keep in mind that we have a show on Saturday so we can't make it that night. You don't have to be part of the NAMM show to attend. If you're in the area (near Anaheim) then please come and join us!

    Also, we are bringing Ukulele Underground LIVE to Southern California. We'll be doing concerts and workshops in San Diego, Los Angeles, and Huntington beach. Check out the video below for more info.

    This belongs in Shameless Self Promotion unless of course you own the website! Haha.

    Looking forward to seeing at U-Space like last year! Great show!

    Your show on Sat at Island Bazaar is already sold out!

    I hope we stay at USpace. If we move again, the room might be too big like last year. It was still a lot of fun and I'm looking forward to this year. Say hi after/before the show! Island bazaar is a crazy crowd. It's gonna be a fun tour.

    Thank you so much for doing these interviews. Looking forward to everything you're going to show us. Here are some of the things that I would like to hear about:

    - What's new from Kamaka, Kanile'a (including Islander), KoAloha (including Opio), and Ko'olau (including Pono)?

    - Any news from Blackbird, Collings, Larrivée, Pepe Romero and Romero Creations?

    - What's up with Rick Turner / Compass Rose?

    - Will Martin be celebrating their Centennial of building Ukuleles?

    - Also, very interested in crossover instruments like Tenor Guitars (ask Larrivée about their plans), Guitaleles (check out the Ibanez Piccolo), and Ukes with Steel Strings (ask Pono). Perhaps you could ask companies specifically about their plans regarding innovation, as players worldwide are not just looking for traditional style, but new ways of expanding their musical horizons and their instrument collections...?

    Have an awesome tour, Aldrine! I'm happy for you to see that it's selling out already

    NAMM questions - Anything Kamaka can share about their 100th would be welcome. Maybe ask the other companies what they think about Kamaka and Martin's 100th, memories or stories to share?

    If you want to be investigative, maybe try to talk Martin into doing something for their 100th, and ask if they'll continue building in the US since they've discontinued some models lately?

    Can't wait to see your coverage. Mahalo and good luck with the tour!
