2019 Palm Strings Ukulele Festival

Thursday, October 31, 2019, 1:00 PM

FOR MORE DETAILS VISIT https://playuke.net. Questions? email playukemail@gmail.com or TEXT MESSAGE 775-220-0995. Our 2019 Palm Strings lineup includes new faces and returning favorites to our uke-in-the-desert soiree! Swing-Jazz Extraordinaire Casey MacGill kicks off our lineup. Casey performs music that swings. Nat "King" Cole Trio meets the Mills Brothers. Fats Waller meets Fats Domino. Slim Galliard meets Fred Astaire. It is American music of many decades and no decade in particular, all happening at the same time, woven into a seamless, beautiful whole. Next, from the north of England, comes the completely unique duo, Dead Man's Uke. Pair a steel resonator Beltona uke once owned and played by Tiny Tim with a double-bass, in the hands of the father and son team of Tim and Jake Smithies, and you get an infectious blend of uproarious pub-saaviness and retro-slickness that will transfix you. Returning to the Hilton are Grammy Award winners Daniel Ho, the high energy, Antique-Pop duo Victor & Penny, multi-instrumentalist Gerald Ross, third generation musical chanteuse Dani Joy, and more! The festival will begin Thursday afternoon with a bonus Earlybird workshop, Earlybird jam, and a Halloween night, meet-n-greet reception/concert/costume ball Spooky Uke Bash with wild performances at the bar & grill that will have you grabbing your plastic ukes and jumping into the pool to party along! Food & Drink will be available for purchase from the Hilton. This get together is a special evening for all Earlybird passholders and their guests.  On Friday and Saturday we will offer full days of workshops for players of all levels and abilities, a day stage with a mix of free entertainment and open-mic for those of you who want to perform, and a vendor marketplace for those of you who like to shop. We'll wrap up with an outstanding concert event, details TBA. WHERE: The Hilton Palm Springs is just a short stroll from the heart of the boutique district, at 400 E. Tahquitz Canyon Way.  WHEN: October 31, November 1 & 2.
