    Default Tickets for James Hill & Friends Now Available

    Tickets are on sale now for James Hill & Friends at the Napa Valley Opera House, Friday, Sept. 9. This year, James will be performing with Anne Davison, Lil' Rev, Gerald Ross and Aaron Keim. Last year's show was killer. This one might be even better. Plus, there's a VIP reception before the concert with a food & wine pairing.

    Tickets ($25, $35 & $50) are available through the Opera House: http://winecountryukefest.com/friday...y-opera-house/ You can purchase them online, but I think you'll save a few bucks by purchasing them by phone: (707)226-7372.

    Hey Elaine, are you looking for more performers/instructors? My good friend, Isaiah Holokahi (Bradda Izi) hosts plenny jams and teaches weekly classes in Vallejo. I'm sure he'd be interested.

    Also, is the vendor section free this year, similar to the first year, but unlike last year's?

    Aloha,

    We are pretty much full up for instructors this year, but I might be able to find a spot on the performance stage for your pal on Sunday, "Aloha Day." So have him get in touch with me.

    And, yes, the vendor section will be free this year. The live music at the college is also free but we are asking folks to purchase a wristband which will get them three raffle tix (value $15), preferred seating for the live music (up close and in the shade), and an opportunity to jam with the pros (priceless.) Everyone loves a free event, but the musicians and sound guys gotta eat, too.

    Could you tell us a bit more about the after hours jam?

    Sure. "After hours" just means after the official workshops are done at 3:30. On Saturday Gerald Ross (the original jam monster) will lead a Swing Band Jam with Kathy and Marv Reitz and whoever else wanders by from our illustrious pool of ukulele talent. On Sunday, Lil Rev and Aaron Keim will be leading a jugband jam....bring your own jug. Both jam sessions are free to join if you have the coveted wristband. To get the wristband you either have to buy the full-day workshop pass for that day or buy the wristband for $15 (you also get 3 raffle tix worth $15 when you buy the wristband.......).

    The Swing Jam and I'm pretty sure the Jug Band jam will be a very inclusive affair. That was INclusive. The tunes will be easy to play for the beginner but interesting enough for the experienced jammer to stretch out and explore. See you there.

    Anyone have any ideas on how to identify fellow UU members? It'd be nice to put a face to a username Being a newbie here, I missed out on a shirt so I'll probably wear my shirt from the 41st Ukulele Festival on Oahu and as stated to DougF in another post, I'm probably the biggest Japanese guy you've ever seen. Hope to meet many of you there.
