2023 Funky Frets Uke Fest - News

The 2022 fest was a blast and thanks to all great prefomance from the attendees and featured performers that attended. Send any links to photos and we'll run them on our Wednesday night Funky Frets TV Show. Funky Frets Uke Fest 2023 is shaping up to just the same.

The Funky Frets Uke Frets keeps getting better and better every year.

For the same price or less than most festivals you'll get a historic carousel ride & strum-along, Sunday jam and picnic, catered lunch and dinner Saturday as well as all the standard fest items. 2019 was a Philadelphia theme and we kicked off Saturday's concert with none other than Philly's own historic ukulele player, Ben Franklin (he did play guitar for real) and some Philly Mummers to get the audience strutting their stuff without out having to wait for New Years Day Mummers Parade down Broad St. in Philadelphia. And, a lot better weather. 2022 was the Roarin' 20s, 2023 was a Doo-Wop 50s theme, see what we have in store for 2024 and ...

2023 will featured a Doo Wop 50's/Rock 'n' Roll theme.

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
