  2. I haven't done the San Sebastian Festival yet, but I was invited to a Parranda, which is a big holiday party. The Plena band that I have been working with were playing at the party, and they told me to bring the ukulele. So then, when they started their second set, the guy who is the leader of the band said , "our friend Rollie, from Iowa, is here with his ukulele, and he is going to entertain us with some plena on his ukulele. I don't think I've ever heard plena on the ukulele, so give it up for Rollie." So I went up there and he asked me what I wanted to play, and I said Bailala. So then we played. It was incredible, and it was a good lead in for the festival next weekend.
