Singing in Florida

We (Brian & I, as The Fabulous Heftones) just had a whirlwind 3 days singing in Florida. Friday we sang at a house concert for Tampa Bay Ukulele Society (TBUS). Saturday we jammed with the TBUS in the afternoon (we took Brian’s dad, Larry, with us).

What great folks we met! Steve and Dr. Ron were great hosts to us Friday, and the audience was wonderful.

Saturday’s jam… well, how many people have heard “Wild Thing” played by several dozen ukuleles at the same time?  That was fun! It was unforgettable in many ways.

Sunday we sang (in Lakeland) a concert for my mother and her friends. Brian’s parents attended, as well.  Can you say “Three Dozen folks singing along?” Much fun, indeed!

It will be hard to transition to snow by Monday, after the beautiful sun we had Sunday in Lakeland. Lansing is home, though, and I will enjoy being back with “my people” back home.

Here is a photo Brian’s dad took of us at the Lakeland concert:LakelandHeftones
This is what I do for a good time!

    No way! We’ve been down in FL for the past week- hope you had fun.

    Either you’ve gotten a new Heftone bass or I’ve never noticed before that a) it’s a 5-string nor b) it’s fretless.

    Great job, rockin’ bass lady!

    “Wild Thing” played by several dozen ukuleles? Is there a video of that anywhere online?

    I always love to see photos of your guys singing! You are such a lovable couple, and make me smile.
    Take care

    Rats! I would have attended your Tampa gig with the TBUS if I had known. I’m down here from frosty Whitby, ON for two months and am on the verge of buying myself a ukulele and learning how to play it. I was smitten when I saw some videos of the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain on YouTube. We used to sing along with my dad when he played his ukulele when I was a kid.

    I met you in Toronto at the Bloor St. Chapters when the YarnHarlot was launching one of her books. You had just arrived from Michigan with your friend Rae (?).

    “Wild Thing” would have been so fun!
