Man, this sounds like an event to remember! Wish I could be there, but I will be in New York for the long weekend.

Somebody take some pictures. Better yet, video!

Thanks for the kind words, there will be video of the event...hopefully good video. I only wish you could be there to contribute your talents with uke and mic. You can be sure that the whole Buhen family will miss you.
Your pal,
King

Thanks so much, King Kukulele. I really do wish I could be there but there's an awesome marionette rock 'n roll sandwich fixin' show (with guest magician!) going on at Pioneer Chicken that starts at 7pm. The promoter is actually paying people to show up just so they can fill it for the video that will play at Sundance. Gizzard baskets for everyone! Sorry, King. By the way, snag me one of those left-hander club cards. Thanks.

Very funny Weird Unc...what a coincidence that it is happening right across the street!!!

Sorry for anybody that doesn't get a seat. I wish there was more room for everybody so to help out I will be playing solo tonight. Bono had King Kukulele playing solo in his cabaret in Dublin Mr. Pussy's Cafe Deluxe. It was my first ukulele gig in 1994!! Tonight will be revisiting the King's early days.

I was going to go, but there was a Britney Spears retrospective at club Pure in Las Vegas today that I really needed to go to instead. I did not mind waiting in line for 7 hours. Didn't even mind when Lindsay Lohan and some guy with a black hat and horrible mascara blew past me and were let in ahead of me. Did'nt they know that I am LUCAS VIGOR (of the old money Boston Vigors)? Didn't they recognize my sheer awesomeness?
Finally I got in. The doorman with the mullet and the huge muscles was rude. The drinks were 37 dollars each. The beers 18.50. Still, I did not mind. The Mai-tai was actually vodka and grape vitamin water. No problem! I might meet Rick Saloman!! It's worth it!!
I told myself there is no way in HELL I am going to see King Kukulele this evening! And I stuck to my guns!

See, I don't want to see real, live music. I don't want to ever see a consumate entertainer that can make a song out of nothing, and keep the crowd entertained and having a good time. I don't want to hear a great singing voice, excellent Uke strumming, and funny as hell stage banter. I don't. I don't .I don't.





JK, King. I have to stay late at work!

WHOA! Mr. Vigor thank you for the compliment. Sorry Britney's show was the same night...I actually cover one of her hits...(oops)

Mike Buhen told some great stories, the Lefthanders Club reconvened for the first time in 40 years, Tiki Diablo did a great interview and Miles Thompson surprised everyone and did a Q&A too. Thanks to Kevin Kidney for recreating the original Lefthanders Club membership card. See you at the next Floating Luau!!

Thanks to everyone who came out.
