Marty and Brian Luster Perform at Carnegie Hall

We all know the way to get to Carnegie Hall is “practice, practice, practice.” Well, on Wednesday evening more than two years of ukulele practice paid off when Brian and I got the opportunity to accompany the UKULELE ORCHESTRA of GREAT BRITAIN before a nearly full house at Carnegie Hall in Manhattan.

 Here we are outside Carnegie Hall prior to showtime. Note the sticka.

Here are some of our buds from the orchestra on 7th Ave. trying to find a proper pub.

 A quick sidewalk rehearsal, and finally our grand performance,

along with hundreds of other ukulele wielding audience members.

About Marty Luster

I'm Marty Luster, a retired attorney and politician. In 2010 my wife, mother-in-law, dog and I relocated from Central NY to Gloucester. I hope my photographs and poetry(?) reflect my love for this place and her people. My picture-poem posts can be seen at and selected black and white images can be found at

    Marty, you never cease to amaze. Of course now you have no choice but to perform for GMG. Joey, I think this calls for a video to be shared with all of GMG of Marty and Brian performing at Capt. Joe & Sons!
