I'd love to consider this one, but is it just a one day fest?

It was only one day last year and probably again this year. But it was a long day. It started at 10am with a big jam and ended around 8pm because the place it was at had a band scheduled to play. If they didn't have that I'm sure we would have stayed longer.

Stan, the guy who owns Elderly Instruments, is usually pretty invovled, so we'll see what happens. There's supposed to be some kind of museum thing too.

It's still coming together and I'll keep this thread updated.

All you gotta do is find a way to the airport. I live 5 minutes away.


That goes for anyone else too! I'll be the taxi for the weekend.

The Saginaw uke group (SUGAR) talked about coming down at our meeting last Saturday! I'm hoping at least a small group wants to go down for the day.

So, I got the green light from the wife. I am going to be coming up to MUD! Is there some sort of sign up to make sure I have a seat in Lil Rev's workshops or Gerals Ross' Workshops?

I am psyched about the concert and late night jam!

I think you have to register through Elderly Instruments for the Lil' Rev workshops. I'm not sure about Gerald's.
