All Shook Up
Well, we were "all shook up" when we saw the announcement in the local newspaper. It was a nice article, larger than we expected, announcing the ukulele concert at our local library on April 14. But it's NOT THE YESTERUKES who will be performing! It's The Whiteouts--Ralph Shaw & Joel Eckhaus--who will be here than night. The paper got the photo right, the text right...but not the title of the article.
Ralph and Joel are both professional musicians who are currently on an east coast tour. They both perform and teach at ukulele festivals and workshops across the country. They will be teaching a ukulele workshop in the afternoon before the concert, so if you would like to learn a little uke, let us know. There are a few spaces left.
The YesterUkes will all be in the audience that evening to enjoy hearing how the pros do it. We hope plenty of others in our community come, too. So let's say it one more time: The Whiteouts will be in concert on April 14. The concert is free and open to the public. (See details in the Schedule section on the right side.)
After all the confusion, maybe the library will schedule us to play at a later date
