I think it's all done now.

Hi all. We had a real learning experience in recording what product went out and to whom, so if you're one of those who got the CD late we apologize. And if you still haven't gotten your copy in the mail, please let me know so I can make amends.

Again, thanks everybody! It's been a great year. We bought our banjolele and are working out renditions of Wagon Wheel by Old Crow Medicine Show and a lively version of Will the Circle Be Unbroken ala the album by the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. We've got five shows lined up between now and August, including one this Friday at Cozmic in Eugene, Oregon. It's the annual Hodge Podge student ukulele concert with four other local uke-kid groups. We play last 'cause we're the best.

Cheers!

CD's Done, and almost here!

Yep, recorded, produced, and on its way! If you're in the Eugene area, you can come pick your copy up at our CD release concert at Cozmic, 8th and Charnelton in Eugene on Tuesday, April 2nd. Concert starts at 6 pm with Ukulele great Craig Chee opening for us. For your copy, go up to the kids at the table. They'll take your name and give you your CD.

If you can't make the concert, we'll mail you your copy by Friday. 

Oh, and if you get the Register Guard in Eugene, check the Ticket section tomorrow (Friday).

Can't wait? Here's another sample:

It's all coming together!

We've recorded, posed for a photo shoot, designed the cover, licensed the songs, and sent the CD to the production company. It should be in your mailbox in a couple of weeks.Thanks for making this happen! We've had a lot of fun, and the kids have learned a lot from this experience.

Here's a taste:

We Made It!

And we came in with an extra $140, so we'll be playing a free show at the Lifeskills School in North Eugene. I'm going to kick in some extra cash and buy the kids a banjo ukulele so they can work out "Wagon Wheel" by Old Crow Medicine Show and "Will the Circle Be Unbroken." Sorry, those songs won't be on the CD. 

And we'll be recording soon. I'll keep you posted.
