Wear regular clothes so you blend in with the Market crowd.
It will start off with Joe sitting on a stool and picking out When You’re Smiling. We will randomly walk up from different directions, pull out our ukuleles and join in with him, playing the song through just ukes, then when we are all gathered, play through again singing along. Then we will break into All of Me…..and end with a rousing rendition of Love Potion #9…and slowly walk off as the song is fading out at the end ..leaving Joe alone just as it started.
Thank you to Wayne for organizing this and even getting a permit from the city! We are going to video it, and put up on our webpage and youtube.
