UU Apparel, Promoting Local Musicians, String Buzzing, and String Superstition

Dear Crystal Ball, when will Ukulele Underground hold it's Virtual Concert? This week the UU Team is discussing when the Virtual Concert might be held, what it may look like, and even some future performers and guest. The guys also ask for help from any designers or apparel specialist. A viewer asks when Aldrine and the UU Boys might go to the East Coast? Aldrine explains why UU has been hesitant about participating in live events, and gives a positive outlook for future events. One member asks why they might be experiencing string buzzing after changing their strings? This leads to Aldrine divulging his superstition of not cutting strings. We answer a couple of questions about performers hurting their voices and tuning preferences before setting the Guidelines for a new Songwriting Challenge. We wrap up with a Bass Ukulele Strings discussion, and explaining why Magic Mike hasn't been on the podcast in a while.
