As you know the third annual Tampa Bay Ukulele Getaway kicks off tomorrow and while tickets have been sold out for several months, there's still plenty you can enjoy at this event:
- Friday evening is free and open to the public. We are expecting a big crowd and will have several events going on at once including a showing of The Mighty Uke film, a Beginner's Workshop with Julie Austin, Ukulele Open Mic with Big Jim Allen and a Daily Ukulele Jam Session with Jay & Friends. You can view the schedule here.
- Raffle tickets will be on sale and you don't have to be present to win. We have nine wonderful ukuleles to give away including instruments from our sponsors: Ohana, Luna, Kala, Moku, Sideways 8 and Augustino LoPrinzi. We'll also be giving away other great prizes including signed books & CD's, accessories and Skype lessons with Gerald Ross, Manitoba Hal and Jim Allen.
- Our vendors will be on site all weekend and open to the public. Saturday we'll have our signature Vintage Uke Display with collectible instruments and ukulele songbooks. This year's vendors include three unique custom builders you'll want to check out. Don't miss an unprecedented ukulele shopping experience.
- Jim & Liz Beloff will have copies of their newly released Daily Ukulele Leap Year Edition with 366 new songs! They'll also have some of the new limited edition Pink Flamingo Flea ukulele's and both are for sale at special festival discount prices.
We hope to see you this weekend.!
