Going to the Windy City Ukefest?

Thanks, Terry, for setting up this blog. 

It would be interesting to know where folks are coming from to attend the Ukefest.  I’m just down the road in St. Louis.  I’ve been playing just about a year so I’m looking forward to the workshops and the opportunity to see and hear others.

  1. I’ll be there, Brad. I’m coming in from the Sierra Nevada foothills of Northern California. As an attendee of 14 ukulele festivals, I can guarantee you’ll have the best ukulele time you can imagine. This one is shaping up to be well-organized, informational–and lots of *fun*! Introduce yourself to me when you get there!

  2. Yes, Brad

    You won’t find a better arrangement of talented ukulele instructors and top-notch performers anywhere, except maybe Hawaii.

    Keep strumming, singing and smiling.

  3. Hello!
    I’m coming from southern Wisconsin. This will be my first fest. I’ve been playing a couple years and am really looking forward to the whole experience – ukulele heaven!
    Hope to see you there!

  4. Yo! I’m coming from Barbados, West Indies. I’m a newbie 🙂 – only been playing for a year! Looking forward to meeting all ukers… look for me, I;ll be wearing a ‘Barbados’ Tee shirt!

  5. Wow, only a week away!

    The excitement is growing as we are making final preparations for the fest. I am looking forward to meeting many of you again, and many for the first time.
    I am especially looking forward to the many jam sessions and just hanging out with everyone.

    Also, be careful everyone, there will be many incredible ukes for sale. All of us uke players are algebra experts and know the answer to the following equation:

    What is the the algebraic equation for the right number of ukuleles to own?


    X+1, where X = the number of ukuleles you currently owns.

    See you all there,


  6. Hey Terry — many thanks for organizing the Uke Fest. It was my first ukulele-related event and I had a great time. The teachers were, without exception, excellent, the evening entertainment was just outstanding and, after drooling over all of the beautiful ukes, I got the one Kimo played! Couldn’t ask for much more.
