Ibanez Ukuleles, Mel Bay: Friday Links

Ibanez are the latest guitar company to jump on the bandwagon with their range of ukuleles.

Mel Bay have a new dedicated uke site which includes a chance to win a Kala travel ukulele.

Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain at the Proms (it may or may not be available where you are).

The film industry seems to have been overtaken by ukuleles recently. James Franco serenaded Julia Roberts with Jen Kwok’s ukulele. She’s also going to be ukeing in the film. And Zac Efron plays uke in his next film as well. Whilst Russell Brand ukes in his skivvies (thanks to Heather for that one). But they can’t do it like the old-school stars: Buster Keaton and Ukulele Ike duet on one uke.

Humble Baritonics is a new blog from Jeff searching out baritone ukulele tabs online.

One to avoid: PlayAUke. Yeah, it’s for charity. But charging for this is just ridiculous. Chapter one is six lines of writing and 3 Julia Nunes videos. And it doesn’t get any better.

The Observer chats to the UOGB and Tricity Vogue.

MP3s: Oh World has a track from The Hazzards (formerly the Ukes of Hazzard), ZME Music has tada tata.

10 ukulele clubs and club nights in London.

The Beatle Fest’s largest ukulele ensemble record attempt gathered 97 people. So I’m still a World Record holder.
