Playing in the Pit -- Community Theater part 1

So, April 13, 14 and 15, T.U.P. is playing ukulele as part of the circus band for A Resting Place in the parks and plazas of Bethlehem, PA. It's a huge community project. You can see my hands playing silver ukulele in one shot in the promo video below (at 1:06).

The ukulele is an anachronism, of course, as the pageant is set during the Civil War. One would think that my handlebar mustache would have ameliorated the chronological incorrectness of it all. Then again, the show is at least in part about going off script. Hey, Shakespeare has characters commenting on a clock striking the hour in ancient Rome. So the uke is in good company, as always.

Enjoy the video!
