EVENT DESCRIPTIONS

Yet Another Ukulele Songbook Volume 3 Release party! Volume 3 of this great book series will make its world premier at the Play Day. Songs from Volume 3 will be featured throughout the day. Attendees will have the opportunity to purchase a copy with their ticket at a special pre-release price of only $12.50. Volume 3 will also be for sale at the event for the discounted price of $15. It will be $20 after October 12th.

John Sandoval song workshops: Local legend John Sandoval will present two of his patented song-based workshops.

Strum-along: Everyone will participate in the strum-and-sing-alongs led by Leonard Kaufer from Uke Jams. Music will come from Yet Another Ukulele Songbooks (YAUS) Volumes 1, 2, and 3. These books will be available for sale and to borrow at the event. Songs are also available online at www.UkeJams.com. Throughout the strum-alongs there will be mini-lessons covering tricky songs and some intermediate concepts.

Band Scramble: Everyone will be broken out into large groups. Each group will select and rehearse a song. The songs will be presented at the start of the open mic.

Open Mic: After the band scramble performances the floor will be open for an open mic session which will go until 9:00 (or later!). You are welcome to bring adult beverages to enjoy or share.

Raffle: We will have a brand new ukulele to raffle. Each attendee will get one free ticket when they turn in a feedback questionnaire!

Side Sessions: Weather permitting there are outdoor spaces available for those wishing to take extended breaks or to split out into their own musical adventure any time during the day.

Requests: Everyone attending will put the name of any one song from the YAUS songbooks they would like to include in the strum-along into the hat. Throughout the day we will draw from the hat and play those songs.
