Do you want to be in the Guiness Book of World Records??

If you live somewhere in the vicinity of Maryland, you can be!!  If you guys remember, about a month ago, I posted about an event Gage and I attended at the Strathmore- an outdoor concert series.  Now they are having a super cool event next week on August 24th called UkeFest 2011!  This is back by popular demand and is one of their most popular annual summer events!  UkeFest  is a "tribute to the quirky ukulele [and] will feature live performances from local musicians and our attempt to convene more than 851 ukulele players to perform in unison and nab the title of World's Largest Ukulele Ensemble."  I definitely think it would be totally cool to be in this, or even just watch it.  If you visit UkeFest 2011's page, the chords and lyrics of the 2 songs are featured and they have a 'pre-strum' practice before the show.  Here is the invitation if you are interested.
So if being in the Guiness Book is an item on your bucket list, or you just want a cool experience before the summer ends, check this event out! AND if you do, please let me know.  We're going to be out of town next week so we will unfortunately miss it.  I will let you know though that when I was little, my Mom had a ukulele and I even learned to play a few songs.   Below are some pictures from last year- UkeFest 2010.

Looks pretty cool, if you ask me.
