    (Looking at map.) Wait, not a one on the hawaiian islands? That’s gotta be wrong.

    What, you really have a staff now? Congratulations.

    This is the first time I’ve looked at Uke Hunt outside my RSS for a while. LOVE the new look.

    Any tips for people starting a niche blog? (don’t worry, it won’t be ukulele)

    Have you seen this Lulu and the Lampshades video?

    Hi”Eve” in Cleveland — What’s your local number?
    Hi Woodshed — There’s another (YES!) uke group that meets in Cleveland (eastside). Also, LOVE the new look of your site. Thanks for being “here.”

    is a nice group here in Arizona…in the Scottsdale area…i haven’t been in awhile, but i’ve had some very good times with these great people….

  6. Woodshed March 11th, 2010 7:16 pm

    Coyote: Perhaps I should have said ‘US Mainland’. I haven’t included Hawaii. Don’t know if I will.

    David: Millions! I’ll email you.

    Tombo: Yes, thanks. Got it lined up for the UkeTube.

    Melissa: Thanks!

    todd: Thanks. I’ll get it added.

  7. Coyote March 11th, 2010 7:29 pm

    It seems like Hawaii could be an entire category on its own.

  8. Woodshed March 11th, 2010 7:32 pm

    Coyote: Yeah, that’s exactly what I was thinking. I gave Hawaii its own category in the festivals posts. It definitely needs it here too.

    I think its well overdue to put Sheffield on the Uke Map.
    I play with The Everly Pregnant Brothers – probably Sheffield’s finest Ukulele Ensemble!! Check out our Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Everly-Pregnant-Brothers/139487792252?ref=ts

    Our new CD album, called ‘Sheffield Calling’ pays tribute to the Clash, plus a whole host of eclectic ukulele renditions.

    Keep the Uke

    Best wishes Klive

  18. Tim Smithies May 4th, 2010 1:52 pm

    Hey Klive

    Sheffield’s already on the map Sir – Ukulele Sundays will restart at the Riverside later in May and The Anything Goes Orchestra have been around for a while – be good to catch up with you boys at an event soon, good luck with the CD.

    Tim ;-)

    Hi!

    We’re starting a Uke club in Jacksonville, FL, USA…

    Can you add us to your list?

    Ukulele Luau of Jacksonville
    http://www.meetup.com/Jacksonville-Ukulele-Luau/

    Our ukulele shop is sponsoring the meet-up, even offering free uke rentals. Going to approach it more like a workshop for beginners at first. It may evolve over time, but it should be tons of fun!

    Thank you!
