Preview: Four Days & Nights of FUN!
Each day will have a variety of musical options, but also one fun theme
Wednesday, Sept 23 • Early Bird Bonus Day
Beatles Day - My favorite Early Bird Bonus Day ever!
After your choice of afternoon workshops, we'll gather for a special evening with a very special guest–Laurence Juber, Paul McCartney's lead guitarist from Wings and session guitarist for George and Ringo at Abbey Road Studios! "LJ" will weave fascinating tales from the history of the music of the UK–from uke stars George Formby and Tessie O'Shea to Beatlemania. Then, he will provide the rhythm for our REAL Beatles Jam! It'll be as close as you'll get to jamming with a Beatle!
Thursday, Sept 24 • British Invasion Day
More Fab Four and their friends!
The Vendor Marketplace opens and our first full day of workshops begins, including two special classes; Strum Like Johnny and All About Paul's Bass. Both John & Paul had unique styles that set the Beatles apart from their peers. We'll also have a special headliner performance on the Day Stage, and finish the evening with a spectacular, one-time-only British Invasion Variety Show created especially for our festival.
Saturday, Sept 26 • Americana by Day - Floyd/Dead Man's Uke Finale by Night
The Country Origins of the Carter Family, Bluegrass for the Ukulele, and Jazz!
The final day of our Vendor Marketplace and workshops will be supplemented with our Super Raffle, during which we will give away thou$ands in cool ukuleles! Aaron Keim and Dennis Fisher will teach twangy, old style Americana and Bluegrass. The Day Stage will be hopping. And finally, we return to a different region of the UK for our Grand Finale. Experience the massive arrangements and elaborate stage effects of a live Pink Floyd concert will burst forth in a dazzling finale of lasers and rock grandeur with The Floyd. We'll finish off Reno Fest XII with a complete performance of the longest charting album in music history, Dark Side of the Moon! Or is it Dark Side of the Uke?
