Who doesn’t want to make history? If you play the ukulele (or feel you can learn to play two simple chords by tomorrow) this Saturday is your chance!
The Japanese American Cultural & Community Center and U-Space have organized their second Los Angeles “Ukulele Play-Along Guinness World Records Attempt” this Saturday, Apr. 18, in the JACCC Plaza in Little Tokyo. The event is free to attend, but you must have your own ukulele (or purchase one at U-Space at a special L.A. Ukulele Expo discounted rate.)
Registration to participate in the massive (and with any luck, largest) ukulele ensemble starts at 9:30 a.m. The Guinness World Records attempt will take place at 11:30 a.m. And just so you know: to meet Guinness World Record standards, the ukuleles must be played together, in harmony, for at least five minutes. The title is currently held by the country of Tahiti, where 4,750 participants, including President Edouard Fritch, completed the song “Bora Bora E” in unison.
Go Metro to the JACCC (located at 244 S. San Pedro Street) and save $2 on the official L.A. Ukulele 2015 World Records Attempt t-shirt. All you have to do is hop on the Metro Gold Line to Little Tokyo/Arts District Station, and be sure to show your valid TAP card at the event registration table where shirts are sold. Use the Trip Planner or Google Transit to plan your best route.
