Are you a frustrated ukulele player? Do family and friends make fun
of your diminutive instrument? Do you long to pull your uke out of
the closet and strum it proudly on stage without any fear of public
disapproval?

Well heres your chance! This Saturday, June 21, The Waikiki Steel
Works (thats Frank Novicki from APE, & Ben Bonham) are performing
at the Cellar at Johnny Foleys in San Francisco. And as a special
treat they are inviting all ukulele players who attend to join them
on stage for a rousing Ukulele Superjam. This event is open to ALL
uke players, REGARDLESS OF SKILL. Bring your uke, pay the admission,
jam on stage. Its that simple. We hope you and your Auntie Flo
will join us!

Using the same instrumentation as Hawaiian musicians of the 1920s
and 30s, The Waikiki Steel Works (AKA Frank Novicki & Ben Bonham)
make the sounds of old-time Hawaiian string music new again.
This is Frank & Bens first performance in the Bay Area in over a
year. Audiences will be in for a rare treat of vintage National steel
guitars, ukuleles, and Hawaiian slack key imbued with Island sounds,
hot jazz, ragtime and swing.
