Well, we had a nice turnout last night at the pizza shop. I think we all had a good time.
Let's welcome John Nicholas. John is a guitar teacher at Saied, and while not really too familiar with the uke yet, one can tell that he will be one the talented folks that we can always use to help the newcomers. He is planning to come to our "Four Strings, Four Fingers, For Fun" evenings in the future as time will allow.
Some of you may find that the music shop in Bartlesville is close to you, Tom Stevens is giving uke specific lessons at that shop. Tom brought a couple nice ukes that that shop sells to our meeting last night and I really like the tone of the RipTide mahogany tenor he had with him. (Tom normally plays a baritone with CGEA tuning strings, giving an overall lower tone than mostukes.).
Tom and Mark are working on a gig at a restaurant in Bartlesville. When this is finalized, they will let us know and maybe ask some of us to set in during their evening entertainment. Tom did have a couple evening gigs at the local Dusty Dog Pub last month too.
Next week we will have more ujke opportunities with our regular meeting at the WCD on Tuesday and the open mike night the Cap'n is setting up for Thursday evening at the pizza shop. Hope you can make it.
