(And let’s not forget the warmup act: The Morristown Uke Jam Lonely Hearts Club Band.)
Among the highlights were Boggia’s Boss tribute (with nods to Judy Garland and Jake Shimabukuro) and V&P’s ode to days off. More video clips coming soon. See our Facebook page in the meantime for additional video moments.
