Last year at this time my wife Linda and I were in Redcliffe, Queensland, Australia visiting Sammy Lovejoy, founder of the BUMS (Brisbane Ukulele Musicians Society). It was the fourth week of summer, but for the first time in a decade it was raining to beat the band. For the better part of a week we stayed indoors most of the time. The good thing is we wrote a song during that time which explores some of the history behind the city of Redcliffe, just north of Brisbane, where Sammy lives. Once the weather broke, we rushed to the beach a few blocks away and shot this video. The lead is played on a National Reso-phonic NRP metal body ukulele.
To all my friends down under, have a great summer and Happy 2012!
