Catch the Sweet Hollywaiians with Janet Klein and Her Parlor Boys this Sunday, October 21st at 7:30PM at the Old Town Music Hall (home of the Mighty Wurlitzer) in El Segundo, California.

This is a rare opportunity to hear The Sweet Hollywaiians who are based in Osaka, Japan…

… originally street musicians with a shared common passion of Hawaiian, Swing, Ragtime, Blues, Calypso and Italian of the 1920s~1930s string band tradition, collecting the music of long forgotten legends like Sol Hoopii, King Bennie Nawahi, Roy Smeck and Eddie Lang.

Psst: the stately Old Town Music Hall is also screening The Bride of Frankenstein this afternoon.

Had a terrific time last night at Yang and Emily’s wedding — got to see so many old pals. A highlight was their engagement video set, of course, to Bruno Mars’s “Marry You”. That said —this video is AWESOME (yes, I’m a cry baby):

beginnersuke:

Isaac’s Lip-Dub Proposal! set to Bruno Mars’s “Marry You”

Via meghanpcoleman:

This might be the most amazing proposal I have ever seen! It makes me want to move to Portland :)

Totally agree with Meghan’s comment (PDX is truly an awesome town). If this doesn’t lift you up, well, please check for a pulse.

Play along on your uke (only three chords!): F Gm Bb F :

F
:  2 0 1 0
Gm:  0 2 3 1
Bb:  3 2 1 1

Bruno Mars is one talented performer whose success pleases me no end, chiefly because he’s so appreciative of his good fortune and is clearly having a blast — oh, and he’s a terrific entertainer. Doubters need only watch Bruno tackle any song this audience calls out — from “Eye of the Tiger” to some Tina Turner and Michael Jackson ditties.

You’ll also encounter “Marry You” for the ukulele in this alternate key: D Em G D

Ian Whitcomb discusses and signs “Ukulele Heroes: The Golden Age”
September 18, 2012 at 7:00 pm, at Vroman’s Bookstore, Pasadena, California
Taylor Swift wields one, Train made the Top Ten with “Hey, Soul Sister,” and Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam made an entire album with just the four strings of a uke. But this isn’t the first time the tiny instrument has gotten so much attention. In Ukulele Heroes, Ian Whitcomb—a prestigious ukulele player in his own right—takes readers back to the instrument’s golden age and profiles the glorious individuals who made ukulele history. Featuring stage, screen, and recording stars who pioneered the uke, from Ukelele Ike to Tessie O’Shea, these profiled stars made the uke’s current resurgence possible.
