Watch These Girls Totally Rock Out On Their Ukuleles!

In the music world, the ukulele is a member of the lute family, and it’s a staple of Hawaiian cultural music. The instrument was introduced to Hawaiians by Portuguese explorers, and they immediately took a liking to it.

These talented musicians show off the beauty of ukulele music in all its awesome glory.

That’s definitely way cooler than the vast majority of ukulele videos floating around online! These two are amazing, and watching musicians play is always better when you know that they’re having a blast.

The Best And Worst Of Music Festival Attendees.

There’s nothing more fun than a summer music festival. You get to spend a lot of money, stand around in the heat all day in a smelly sea made up of thousands of intoxicated people, spend even more money, and see some your favorite bands perform live (though probably just a couple that you’ve heard of). In all seriousness, they really can be fun to go to, but whether or not you enjoy a music festival relies heavily on other people–and no, they’re not the band members. The people who can make or break your having a good time at a music festival are your fellow attendees. Take a look at some of the best and worst of them! WORST:

1. It’s called a shirt, buddy, and they cost way too much at the merch tables.

2. No, I do not want to become muddy buddies.

3. The Titanic sinks and this gets to happen? Talk about unfair.

4. Someone really has to do something about those shirt prices.

5. Come.

6. On.

7. People.

8. At least he’s not wearing a Native American headdress?

9. What? Were the Pokey costumes sold out?

10. Get a room! Preferably one that isn’t a port-a-potty. The lines are long enough as it is.

11. Want to promote peace? Stop blocking everyone’s view.

12. “So this is MAH LIFE?!”

13. Okay, the previous PDA doesn’t seem so bad now.

14. I don’t think that’s the kind of shocking he was going for.

15. “Dad?”

16. That’s a lot of effort to put into making sure no one stands next to you.

17. “I don’t know, she seems pretty cool to me.” – a tree

18. There’s no way that baby could name three Dirty Projectors songs. They can barely even say “Mama.”

19. I don’t know what he keeps in that fanny pack and I don’t want to find out.

20. “WE WANT KHLOE! WE WANT KHLOE!”

BEST: N/A Now that you know who to approach and who to avoid at a music festival, all you need is hundreds of dollars to spend on a ticket. You could get a job, but you might be better off starting a band and hoping to get booked. Share this post using the button below.

She Was Sleeping Quietly In The Back Seat…And Then The Music Came On!

There’s nothing that this adorable trio of sisters enjoys more than dancing in the car. Every time their favorite song plays over the speakers, they simply drop everything and dance the day away…even if they’re asleep.

But what on Earth could provoke such a response? It’s not what you’d expect — not Sesame Street, or that that song from Frozen. Instead, it’s the theme song from one of the most popular movies of the ’80s.

Who knew that an Eddie Murphy movie could have such a positive effect on toddlers?

Young Music Student Living At A Retirement Home Brings Joy To Her Neighbors.

There are about 100 senior residents living at the Judson Manor retirement community in Cleveland, but they aren’t the only ones who call the retirement community home.

24-year-old music student Marissa Plank lives there, too. As part of an “Artist-in-Residence program” she gets to live there rent free, allowing her to focus on her studies and making some very beautiful music all while entertaining the residents. Not only does she call them neighbors, but also her dear friends.

What an innovative program, it would be nice if this became much more prevalent.
