The 9th Rotterdam MuseumNight on the 6th of March will be bigger than ever and promises to be a shimmering experience till the smallest details. For the occasion 'The Uke Box' will be putting on a show in the beautiful Historische Museum Rotterdam, Het Schielandshuis. Under the MuseumNight theme, XS/XL, we'll be using the smallest of all string instruments to make the biggest impression on the evening!
What? You don't play ukulele yet? We can fix that! We'll have a couple of sacks full of ukuleles with us which we will pass out and within a half hour we will all be playing a song together, accompanied by song and a Washtub Bass.
