Under Pressure….

Hi. So, I’m going to try to share a few of the amazing video jams from the Memphis Uke & Roll Fest, last weekend. So many talented people, sharing tunes and love…. The talented Ray Cygrymus, Kirk Jones, Sharla Rae, and Tina Zee … ABSOLUTELY killed it, w/ ‘Under Pressure’… An impromptu ‘let’s play this’, Kinda thing… So good…

what talented people!

Memphis Uke&Roll

Hey kids… So, we went to Memphis last weekend, to a ukulele festival. Been looking forward to this for two years… We shall not speak of pandemics… Our friends Mike and Ann picked us up, and off we went down the road.


First Stop

Arrived in the early afternoon, and from that point on, it was go, see, do, listen, share. We went to a meet/greet bbq dinner Thursday evening… Good fun!

jamming at the table

We got to play a tune, at the open mic, after dinner….

Route 66 at the BBQ

Friday, we wandered the downtown/Beale St area… What musical history…

Headed for Beale St
Beale St!
Excited to be on Beale ST!
Waitin’ for the bus
Made it to Sun Studios!
Actual mic used by THE artists
THE spot where Elvis recorded his first tune

Got to hang w/ several of our friends, in real life (IRL) for the 1st time in forever, and, in some cases, for the first time


This is just a part of what we saw, heard, and experienced… A great time…
