The Mighty Uke was a movie that they screened at a Soiree in the past.

Fusion Bags is a company who’s cases I’ve been seeing more and more. They are known for holding two ukes.

Mim from Mim’s Ukes was one of the vendors. She brought many ukes and did set ups all weekend.

Some other vendors there this year were Dewdrop Ukuleles, Mainland Ukes, Leis & Things by Debi, The Hug Strap, and the Adaptive Ukulele System.

How to Start and Grow an Ukulele Club is the book I mentioned.

The Quiet American is one of the teacher/performers scheduled for next year’s Soiree.

Is Pono a K-brand? It’s made by Ko’olau.
