    Default Thomas Creek Brewery Jimi Hendrix Ukulele Campaign

    This morning I discovered that the following mission statement is being used by the Thomas Creek Brewery out of South Carolina:
    IMG_20160617_103454.jpg
    So I'm asking all ukulele players to post and/or share Jimi Hendrix ukulele videos on social media using the hashtags #hendrixuke #uwcfreebeer #makeitrightthomascreekbrewery

    I'm trying to get a response from the brewery, maybe an apology, maybe a donation of beer to UWC...I don't know..I want to keep if friendly and hopefully they will appreciate the viral marketing and we'll get some recognition for the ukulele community as well.

    So please post, tweet, instagram, Facebook, etc and see what we can stir up!

    Defend your honor as an ukulele player!

    That has been tweeted to them and posted on their Facebook page already.

    Small victory so far...they have mentioned that they would trade beers for songs if anyone comes by the brewery with their uke...not sure of the veracity of this offer...more updates to come!

    So, the message is "Don't be typical" but also that Jimi on the uke is wrong.

    If I was trying not to be typical, this is precisely how I'd do it.

    One of my personal favorites, done with my pal Southside Mike.

    Their statement is both insulting to uke players and Jimi Hendrix, who wrote terrific songs.
