  • SINCE WE'RE UKULELE FOLKS AND HAVE THE HAND THAT WE'VE BEEN DEALT, WE'RE GONNA TAKE ADVANTAGE OF IT!

    We are working on new twists that will take advantage of the masks situation, including a Mask-tume Opening Night Celebration with prizes for all participants! All you need to do to win SOMETHING is wear an out-of-the-ordinary face covering, Yes, everybody wins, but we'll also have Grand Prizes for the most original or outlandish head gear! THINK OF IT AS A COSTUME PARTY FOR YOUR HEAD!

     

    If anyone can have fun in the face of adversity, it's the UKULELE COMMUNITY!
