Uke Aid for Steven Strauss

As you will recall from our earlier post, Steven Strauss recently had several ukes and other miscellaneous musical equipment stolen from his car.

Sez Steven:

"A bunch of my friends responded to the theft of my ukuleles with expressions of support, for which I'm so grateful. Many said they were interested in attending any musical event whose express purpose would be to get some good working gear together for me, especially ukemaker Michael DaSilva. Mike is hosting a concert for my benefit this Sunday afternoon at four."

Please let us know if there might be some kind of account set up to which those of us who cannot attend the concert might contribute.....

Hi, great ukulele people! Steven here. Today Mike set up a PayPal button on his site,, and it's already performing like a champ. I'm blown away.

If you can't attend, I'd love to send you a link to some downloadable ukulele music I've been cooking up at home. Write me here: If anything listenable comes out of the Sunday event I'll include some of that, too. You all are going to make me cry,
