Mass Appeals

Mass appeals bring us all together to make some noise. This year we will be learning how to play the harmonica (and passing out 50 free Hohner harmonics), we’ll be jamming on some ukuleles and feeling the rhythm while bucket drumming. We’ll have extra ukes on hand and tons of hand percussion instruments. Feel free to bring your favorite instrument out to the park!

Relax along the banks of the Congaree River with friends and family and watch the sun go down! Mass appeals* bring us all together to make some noise. Join us at Riverfront Park’s historic riverfront pump house complex (312 Laurel Street) where we’ll be making some noise and Bierkeller Columbia will be holding their rescheduled Spider Lilly Happy Hour! Come out and enjoy live music from The Time Pirates! This year we will be learning how to play the harmonica (and passing out 50 free Hohner harmonics!), feeling the rhythm while bucket drumming with Girls Rock Columbia‘s Jess Oliver and strumming some ukuleles. Feel free to bring your own instrument, we’ll have extra ukuleles and hand percussion at the park! There’s something for everyone. 

5:30pm – Ukulele jam! 

6:30pm – Bucket Drumming 101! Learn a little percussion and we can create beautiful music with the uke players! We’ll have drumsticks and buckets for you to play. Girls Rock Columbia director Jess Oliver will lead!

7:30pm – We’ll have free harmonicas from Hohner and the legendary Jim “Wallstreet” Coulliard will tell us about the harmonica and will teach us the basics!
