Celebrate Americana

Friday night the Kansas City Ukesters performed for their largest audience ever, more than 6,100 people. Here they are entertaining the crowd at the Kansas City T-Bones baseball game with a stirring rendition of "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" during the 7th-inning stretch. The fearless musicians even climbed atop the dugout to perform! The Ukesters are a group of people who love to play ukelele. They welcome everyone, people who can play as well as people who want to learn to play. They have made a musician in this household very very happy.

The T-Bones are a independent league team with a picture postcard stadium in Kansas City, Kansas. Going to the game there is pure Americana. Every seat is a good seat and it's thrifty too: tickets cost less than $10, hotdogs are a buck! Free parking, nonstop entertainment. Fans can strum while they watch!

Simple pleasures. Isn't that what life is all about? Happy Fourth!
