The 4th Annual Beatles Complete on Ukulele Marathon Concert

Ukulele master Roger Greenawalt has once again assembled a range of musicians to perform every original Beatles song on the ukulele. The 4th Annual ‘Beatles Complete on Ukulele’ Marathon Concert will take place at New York’s Brooklyn Bowl on January 14 from 3-11 PM. Adam Levy, Nellie McKay, Julian Velard, The Ramblers, Leah Seigel, Casey Shea, Chris Cubeta and The Liars Club, Alyson Greenfield, Bill Sims, Jr., Jingle Punks Orchestra, Martin Rivas, Andrew Vladeck, Erik Deutsch, Suzanna Choffel and Deni Bonet are some of the musicians slated to play the 185 original Beatles songs. Mass Uke Mob will open this year’s show. Previous performances include: Nellie McKay, Ben Kweller, The Pierces, The Naked Brothers Band, Ryan Miller of Guster and many, many more.

Audience members who arrive between 2-3 PM with a ukulele will be admitted free. There will first be a rehearsal followed by the entire volunteer Uke group taking to the stage to play two easy 3-chord Beatle Songs, “Why Don’t We Do It In The Road” and “All Together Now.”

Really? This is a joke right? If not, I couldn’t imagine a worse way to spend the day. Twangy ukulele and overated Beatles crap must equal an epic failure!
