Ukulele by Bike Tour: concert sat April 30 6 PM

Monkey Bottom Collaborative will be hosting a concert April 30 as a part of the spring/summer 2011 continuation of Aaron Lee's "Ukulele by Bicycle Tour".

The concert will start at 6 p.m. Bring food to share for a potluck, and bring your ukuleles/ other acoustic instruments for an open jam afterwards. And/or bring your hands for clapping, your feet for stomping, your body for dancing, your hoop for hooping!

Read on for more details (and links) about Aaron Lee and the show. We hope to see you; help us show what a great community we have and welcome this cycling musician to our hood.

Lisa Marie Albert's provocative documentary photo exhibit , Streetkids Have a Voice, is currently showing at MoBo also: if you missed the discussion event this is your chance to see the show before it goes to wilmington.

This event is free; donations are much appreciated.

Aaron is a solo ukulele performer who recently released an album titled "The Ukulele Project" in which each song creatively contains the word ukulele. Last fall he toured between concerts by bicycle, and performed 40 concerts while riding over 2000 miles between Maine andGeorgia. In April and May he'll be riding north through North Carolina and Virginia, then heading towards Michigan and Wisconsin in June, July and August.
For each concert, Aaron partners with a group or organization that has a community, local action or sustainability focus. For more information about his tour, and to hear some of his music, please visit his website at http://ukulelebybicycle.blogspot.com

Help Us Host Ukulele by Bike Music Tour April 30


Monkey Bottom Collaborative will be hosting Aaron Lee, a cross-country cyclist and ukulele player, Saturday, April 30 at 7 pm for a concert. We'd like to have our community involved to create a spirited welcome for him: if you wish to offer your time and skills toward this effort please let me know ASAP! A community potluck perhaps?; a pre-concert/post concert family music/jamming hour perhaps?; a bike clinic/ something fun and bike-related...????
whatever gets your wheels turning and your strings humming!
please get back to me with not just your idea but your willingness to actively participate and get friends/family to show up!

"eighty percent of success is showing up."
