Our very own Stu Dicker is hosting a cajon-making workshop at his house on Saturday, February 15.
The cajon is a box drum originally from Peru. Extremely versatile, it can sounds great with ukulele. We've used it for many of our performances. Watch Jake and his cajon-playing friend: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BZpFbdWvUpA
Each person will make his/her own cajon! All materials will be provided. The cost is $40 and will need to be prepaid in order for us to buy the materials. You can bring payment to our next meet up on February 1, or mail it to Chinese Community Church, Attn: Ted Fong, 5600 Gilgunn Way, Sacramento, CA 95822. Make checks payable to Chinese Community Church. If you want to use your own wood, talk to Ted or Stu (different woods produce different sounds) so we can make arrangements. Fee will be reduced.
We'll also have a play along for those who are not making cajons. The morning promises to be a lot of fun and fellowship for all!
