Friends of Old Puppy || Polka Dots & Moonbeams

If you enjoy a jazzier sound then here's the place. This group of friends gets together almost every Saturday at 10am to play great music at the Nabalom Bakery in Berkeley just around the corner from where my daughter works at the WF bank. My buddy, Steven Strauss plays the little Risa solid soprano ukulele, he was the musical conscience of the Berkeley Ukulele Club for the first 5 years and delighted us with his skills and occasional concerts.

Billy Wilson is playing the EleUke electric baritone ukulele...

Pip R. Lagenta videos and edits the performances and had the following comments:
"Friends of Old Puppy play Polka Dots and Moonbeams. "Polka Dots and Moonbeams" was composed around about 1940 by Jimmy Van Heusen with lyrics by Johnny Burke. Lyrics are not used in this performance. The Friends of Old Puppy features Steven Strauss on Risa electric soprano ukulele, Billy Wilson on electric baritone ukulele, Ed Johnson on wash-tub bass ("gutbucket"), and Cynthia Wilson on the drums. This music was recorded on June 30, 2012. Friends of Old Puppy play at the Nabolom Bakery in Berkeley, every Saturday morning (starting at 10 a.m.)"
