Funky Frets Uke Fest News – 2023

All the news regarding the Funky Frets Uke Fest. And, the 10th Anniversary of Funky Frets Music Store. The 2022 Funky Frets Uke Fest was a blast and thanks to all that attended. Send any links to photos and we'll run them on our Wednesday night Funky Frets TV Show.

The 2023 Funky Frets Uke Fest is in the planning stages and the dates TBA.

The 2022 Funky Frets Uke Fest, the first live, after COVID lockdown of 2020 was a great time and great to get a 3D person. The Roaring 20s theme was a hoot and every one was spiffy in the 1920s regalia.

The 2019 Funky Frets Uke Fest, our last live, pre-CODID festival had a Philadelphia, Pennsylvania theme with Ben Franklin making an appearance and some Philadelphia Mummers to kick off the Saturday night concert. For 2020 we held a virtual uke fest. 2021 was cancelled due to COVID

Past Funky Frets Uke Fest Artists Have Included

Each year we have all attendees, performers, workshop presenters and vendors sign our uke for the year. The autographed ukuleles are displayed in the Funky Frets Music Store concert hall. We'll have the 2020 ukulele available at the next live in-person festival to sign.

Just browsing over both books, they look fantastic! I'm a guitarist and uke player for over 25 years and was thinking about writing a ukulele book but you've already written what I think are the best, most comprehensive and thorough books I've ever seen for the instrument. I just might end up buying every book you've written and I'll be giving my highest recommendation for your books to my friends and students. Thank you so much for taking the time to write such great books!Peter Rhee

Aloha, Curt, All I can say is WOW! What you have accomplished is simply incredible! All the bestGlen Hirabayashi, The Aloha Boys
