The 2nd Annual Great Midwest Ukefest
Chicago Ukulele Cabaret Presents:
The 2nd Annual Great Midwest Ukefest!
From Traditional to Extreme and everything in-between
The Chicago Ukulele Cabaret will kick off-July 4th weekend with a 4-stringed bang at its 2nd Annual Festival. Part curated showcase and part open-mic, this all day fest expands the cabaret show, allowing everyone to participate while showcasing several of our regular acts in full sets.
As always, the show will offer something for everyone, from traditional players, to classical virtuosos, to full band and indie rock interpretations.
Building on the success of last year's outing, organizers this year are adding a morning show for kids featuring Little Miss Ann while doubling the open mic session in the afternoon. The curated evening portion will feature full sets from perennial cabaret favorites such as Lanialoha Lee, Heavy Boxes, Bone and Bell, Jeffrey Weisfeld Combo, and many more! In addition to 11 hours of live music the indoor/outdoor event will offer BBQ, Raffles, and much more!
proceeds to benefit The Intonation Music Workshop-a local non-profit organization providing band-based music education to children in Chicago's under-served neighborhoods
All are welcome to perform during our four hour open mic segment from 1:00-5:00 PM.
