To sign up for the Open Mic, send a link to a video of you or your group playing the ukulele (singing is optional) to email@example.com (we’ll take the first 20 qualified entrants – we just want to make sure you can play the instrument). Any spots left open will be available for sign up the day of the open mic (by lottery if there are too many).
You should be prepared to perform 1 song. You must attend the Open Mic and perform to win. Winners will be announced immediately after the Open Mic based on the judges’ scores. Judges’ decisions are final. One of this year’s judges is Craig Chee, our headlining artist for the 2013 festival.

Bamboo is one of the oldest and most renuable woods on the planet and it’s use in the construction of the EF-22 ukes is ideal in many ways. It’s light weight and strength give the uke a tighter, louder tone. Plus? Premium grade bamboo with a high gloss finish just plain looks cool!
The MP Custom Tenor
Tropical walnut back & sides; sinker redwood top; zebrawood bindings, rosette and position markers; ebony fingerboard & bridge. Great tone and lots of volume, a newly redesigned tenor with a bigger body, modified bracing and a classical tie bridge.
