The Austin Ukulele Society had a fabulous evening at the November meeting, as attendance reached an all-time high of around 150 players of all ages. All enjoyed the warm vibes of a Hawaiian-themed evening, as we learned “Mele Kalikimaka,” the way to say (and play and sing) Merry Christmas in Hawaiian. Additionally, we enjoyed revisiting and recording a lovely rendition of “What a Wonderful World” in the style of the late great ukulele master and vocalist Israel “Iz” Kamakawiwo’ole.
We were all thrilled to be treated to a variety of musical styles and tunes during the open mic portion of the evening; a big thanks to Kevin Carroll’s Ukestra, Erin, Betty, Elizabeth, and Nancy and Jay!
We look forward to toasting the holiday season with you at our December potluck and strum-a-long Thursday, December 10, at Susan and Ted’s home in South Austin. Email austinukes @ gmail dot com for more information, if you are not already on our email list. :)
