  1. If you do a Ukeville III, go check out this group from Quebec, Lucky Uke (http://luckyuke.com/), they made an all cover album of songs from the 80’s. Great album, I think they have sample on their site.

    Another group that made 3 all cover albums of songs from the 80’s (some in french some in english) is The Lost Fingers (http://thelostfingers.com). They are also from Quebec, Canada. Their music is not Ukulele, it is more gypsy jazz.

    This episode is my first for your podcast and I will continue to follow your great podcast. I discovered it because of your participation in another podcast, “The Morning Stream”.

  2. Really enjoyed this episode, can you get hold of the first one? Guess ill soon need to buy your dvds.

    RedViking4: Nice tip, love gypsy/klesmer stuff.

    A little late, but the Japanese band is Kiyoshi Kobayashi & the Ukulele Swing Gang. Great band. Great show!
