Hi there UUers!
In the futile attempt to make up for the trauma we caused you all during our April Fools prank, we present to you the real April episode of Uke Lessons (with Aldrine Guerrero) – “Stuck on You” by Lionel Richie. This song became popular in Hawaii around 1999-2000ish when a local band named Ekolu covered it on their album, “Down in the Valley.” Our lesson is a little closer to Ekolu’s version, so definitely check it out when you get the chance.
Our April Ukulele Give-Away Contest – “All Things Reggae” (sponsored by Mainland Ukes!) is in full swing, with 30 entries within the first week!! The contest runs until April 30th and literally anyone has a shot at winning. AND with a totally sweet, brand new Concert Mainland Ukulele up for grabs, dude, you should totally enter.
ALSO on Saturday, April 11th (at 3pm HST) we’ll be Live Streaming the internet premiere of “The KoAloha Ukulele Story“ – an award winning short film about the KoAloha Ukulele Company. Previously, it was only available to the lucky few who caught the theater premiere on Oahu, and now we’re hoping to give everyone a chance to see it! Click HERE for more details.
Other than that, hope your April is starting to look pretty wonderful! Keep strumming those ukes and have an awesome weekend!
