Needs a date
Needs a location
Yes, it's been done before, but not in Tampa Bay. Most people already understand the concept of a flash mob: a group of people convene at a pre-arranged location at a pre-arranged time and burst into a brief yet dazzling live performance. The keys to a successful flash mob are (1) high population density -- it is usually in a busy location where people can stop & be amazed (2) a couple people with good video skills to record the whole thing (although frequently people whip out phones and start recording anyhoo). I have an idea of a location/setup, but want to know if there are enough ukers interested to make it worthwhile. The benefit of a flash mob is that it draws attention to something - in our case it would be the RISE of THE MIGHTY UKE! Also, it is to be a part of something bigger than yourself. Oh, and it's just good ol' fun too... Thoughts? Interest? Thanks, JC
Watching the flash mob post with interest - if there is any further sign of development or interest I will offer to video clip the event - some great video clips from UK try the following link - to see how it is done http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=... - it takes of lot of planning

There has been some talk about meeting Liz & Jim Beloff the authors of "The Daily Ukulele" at the airport when they come to Tampa Bay this fall to perform at our Ukulele Festival at the Lake Tarpon Resort. Jay has 2 of their songs in the jam session tomorrow, and we can continue to pratice and play those in flash mob style when they arrive? What do you think? this could draw attention to the TBUS Ukulele Festival as well as "The Rise of The Mighty Uke."
