Category Archives: Bone Island Music Key West Crew

“Bone Island” Music – “Bone Island” or the original Spanish name “Cayo Hueso” (Bone Island) was the original name of Key West BEFORE English speaking settlers came into the picture when the name then began to change from being pronounced “Cayo Hueso”, to eventually being pronounced “Key West” – So Bone Island Music – Cayo Hueso Musica – or Key West Music – you get it right? So we like to call all of our friends, musicians, clubs, conch rockers and music loving fans the “Bone Island Music Crew”

Sneak peek of raw film footage of “The Making of a Florida Keys Tribute Band” Pt 1 of ? Allman Brothers, Led Zeppelin, Iron Butterfly, Eric Clapton & Pink Floyd starring Michael Allman, Wayne Sorbelli of Island Guitar,,,

Michael Allman (Greg Allman’s son raised by Greg & Cher) & Wayne Sorbelli at the Marathon County Club on April 11, 2021 during the filming of the movie “The Making Of A Tribute Band in The Florida Keys”

It was a typical day in paradise – sunny, low 80’s, cool Spring April breeze coming off the Atlantic Ocean, birds singing, sea gulls abundant and in the distance, as my beautiful wife & life partner Jamie drives us up the Marathon Country Club driveway mmmmmm we could hear the crew setting up the stage and sound system – I’m not going to lie – at that point I felt that little butterfly in my tummy – the good one not the other bad one lol – and I took it as a sign of anxious strength (like waiting at the staring line for the staring gun to go off) – and I knew it was going to be an excellent day.

The day was April 11, 2021. It was the filming date of the performances being used in the movie, “The Making of a Tribute Band in the Florida Keys” starring Michael Allman, Greg Allman‘s son of the Allman Brothers band, costarring yours truly Wayne Sorbelli of Island Guitar AKA Bone Island Music in Key West and a host of other great Florida keys musicians like Ray West (who was charged with finding the “right” local musicians with adequate skill levels for the highly demanding musical & technical tasks on hand, & with the willingness & time to do it) and he did a fantastic job!!! Thanks bother Ray!!!

My Led Zep act has “grownup” & is a teenager now. It’s grown into the Florida Keys Led Zeppelin Tribute Band (thanks to Cliff Rydell for imagining, executing & producing this movie about the Making of a real tribute band in the keys This helped with my band’s transition into adolescence. I can’t wait to meet you all again when it’s all grown up playing somewhere like Key West Arena shows in the near & continuing future.

Ukulele Slide Ukulele by online Uke teacher Wayne Sorbelli in Key West

Greetings Wayne here! I sure hope everyone is staying inside, brushing the dust off their ukuleles and guitars and getting busy on them while doing your part to say inside and stay safe and help stop the spread of COVID19 virus. Unfortunately all UKEOUT jam sessions, ukulele open mic nights, and the Monthly Green Parrott Ukulele Orchestra Meeting Night is canceled APRIL 2020 and until notice. Pleased check back.

In order to pass the quarantine “state-of-settle-in” time easier and maybe even with some benefits and true life satisfaction and overall happiness increase, i’m pulling out the old guitars and musical instruments and taking advantage of the time instead of sitting around crying about being locked in.

I’ve got live 1-on-1 SKYPE ZOOM and FACETIME lesson spots open 30 minute or 1 hour. Now is abetter time than ever to give it a try or pick up where you left off – weather it was right before quarantine or not since you where in college – time to get back to it – its the perfect time .

I teach any size Ukulele, banjolele, Uke Bass, acoustic electric or nylon string guitar, Bass guitar, or Cigar Box Guitar or any other stringed home made guitar type instrument. I specialize in slide guitar in regular standard tuning listen to and love everything from Abba to BBKing, Hank Williams to ZZTop, Metallica to SRV and all between.

The Next ukeout April 2020 at the Green Parrot has been canceled due to the state of settling-in for covid-19 virus saftey

UkeOut Ukulele Open Mic and Jam Session in Florida Keys & Key West

Hi friends. I hope everyone is staying safe by staying in during the covid19 virus outbreak.

I find myself playing a ton of ukulele and guitar during all of this – I hope to see you all in person at the Green Parrot ukulele open mic night as soon as this virus passes through and its safe to gather together once again – I sure am missing people and contact and hugs.

If you already play ukulele or are just starting out and would like some beginner to advanced ukulele and even slide or bass uke lessons, please get in touch with me personally or through my store.

different sizes of ukulele chart below:

Ukulele Size & Tuning Chart for Soprano, Concert, Tenor, Baritone, Bass & 8 string Ukes

TUNINGS: Standard (most common) Soprano, Concert and Tenor are all tuned the same way gCEA although you can use other tunings on a tenor but it doesn’t work very well in baritone tuning, which is DGBE like the highest pitched (skinniest) four strings of a guitar. There is also a Bass Uke that is tuned just like a bass guitar to the same tuning and pitch EADG.

The Concert size ukulele is the world’s favorite and most commonly played and purchased – with it’s smaller brother soprano coming in second.
