Greetings all you Yankee Doodle Ukulele Dandies,
Katsu Nayakama has graciously offered his home to host our 4th of July event this year - this will be the 5th year this will be held at his house in Carrollton, TX.

If you are new to Dallas Ukulele Headquarters, a beginner, don't play at all, or have played for years
This is a perfect gathering for you to meet other Ukulele players in the metroplex, and not feel like you have to play. We will be socializing for about 2 hours (noon till 2pm) and eating. The Jam will begin around 2pm. You don't have to play to attend, so what are you waiting for?
PATRIOTIC JAM -
We will be using our BRAND NEW projector to do a patriotic jam. However, some of you may prefer to have your own printout of the music, or even practice a little bit before hand!
So, stroll on over to the files section of our website - look for "Duhpatrioticmedley" -- This is a PDF you can download to your tablet device or print out.
We will be attempting another YouTube video, so bring your Star-Spangliest outfits! Bring flags, if you've got them! Bring crazy hats! But most of all, plan on having FUN as Mark puts on his Director's Hat once again.
The video will be a little different this year: If you have a video camera, please bring it! We can use multiple camera people! We have a professional editor this year who will be helping us out. It will look pretty slick.
Our FIRST 4th of July video has gone viral, and we want to TOP IT! - see that YouTube here - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5q25mhZnOnI
