Rev. Robert Jones' New Old Zimnicki Uke

I really need to tell you all the story of my Zimnicki Reclaimed Wood ukulele, built by Detroit-area luthier Gary Zimnicki. In the meantime, here's a video of Detroit's own Rev. Robert Jones, a noted blues artist and storyteller playing the sister to my uke. Enjoy, and do check out Gary's work

Midnight Ukulele Disco Lives!

Back in the early days of the Third Wave there was Midnight Ukulele Disco. When the resurgence was gathering a head of steam, and when the ukulele was still a fringe instrument. Twenty-some (very) odd years ago Midnight Ukulele Disco introduced us to a new world of performers. Nice to see that the shows are archived on YouTube!
