9:30 AM WORKSHOP & CONCERT – Soundtrack: American Graffiti
Before the blockbuster success of Star Wars, George Lucas scored a hit with American Graffiti, a coming-of-age story based in part on the filmmaker’s own upbringing in Modesto, CA. The movie’s soundtrack, steeped in the nascent Rock n’ Roll of the late-1950s, will provide a playlist for this Graffiti Weekend-themed ukulele workshop and concert with Paul Hemmings (ukulele) and Gaku Takanashi (uBass). Sponsored by the Funstrummers Ukulele Band of Modesto. $25 at the door. For more information, go to www.funstrummers.com.
