Free Love Circus

The Free Love Circus musicians, Brian and Chris, did sound for me and the four sets I did on the Youth Stage at the Mateel Fest last weekend, and then right after each set, played for their own show. These guys and their act were amazing. Their families are in the show too, and they've toured around the world. Check out their website,, and watch for them in your area!

Chris plays a steel-front ukulele---the steel helps amplify the sound--- and he introduced me to A minor on it.

The Ukulele Social Club

Just how far into the wacky world of ukuleles can one go? I keep getting lured in further...Up pops this site for "The Ukulele Social Club", and into it I plunge. Signed up and everything.

It's just so darn cute....and so playable! Did you know "ukulele" comes from the Hawaiian words "jumping flea"?

Makes you want to run out and get one, huh? So what instrument are you learning? Or which one do you imagine yourself playing?
