As if four nights of music in paradise wasn’t enough, there were tons of activities to keep our afternoons filled with excitement. There was curated scheduling of daytime fun ranging from cooking challenges and poolside tunes to our fan-favorite Unplugged en la Palapa. These were a great time to meet new friends and explore the resort!
Unplugged en la Palapa
This year’s Unplugged en la Palapa will feature each member of Horseshoes & Hand Grenades sharing a song they wrote for the band. The guys will share their creative process & detail how their songs evolve from an initial concept to what we hear on the album.
The McCoury’s Stories Hour
Join us at the Palapa Bar for a story hour with legendary Del McCoury! Del’s son Ronnie McCoury and friends Vince Herman, Paul Hoffman, Anders Beck, and John Skehan will pick his brain and get him talking.
The Great Bake & Drink Off
Watch Allie & Natalie go head-to-head then cool down with a drink contest in between challenges. A few lucky attendees will get the chance to mix their finest cocktail for a chance to win prizes! Come early to sign up.
Adult Swim with Erik Deutsch
Hop over to the Adult Pool as pianist/composer Erik Deutsh performs his many eclectic keyboard styles – from jazz, pop, to rock, bluegrass and more… Take a dip or lounge in one of the cabanas and build your own Bloody Mary or Mimosa too!
Ping Pong with Adam & Dave
Dust off your paddles and get ready to battle! Ping pong with Adam Aijala & Dave Johnston of Yonder Mountain Strings Band is back, so get ready to unleash your skills. Sign ups will take place at the activity. Game on!
Bossa Nova Cocktail Hour
Join us for cocktail hour at the Positive Legacy auction. Natalie Cressman pulls from her roots, taking inspiration from her mother, a famous Brazilian vocalist, with Brazil native Ian Faquini helping draw from impressionism, jazz, and songwriting traditions for this unique set.
This year’s workshop features the talented bass players from bands on our 2019 lineup including Travis Book, Greg Garrison, Mike Devol, Ben Kaufmann, & Andrew Altman. Each will share a little about their techniques, history, influences, and more. Join us for a deep dive into the minds of these musicians.
Pickin’ In the Sand with Adam Greuel
Bring your own strings to join other Strings & Sol attendees and Adam Greuel of Horseshoes & Hand Grenades on the beach for our annual Pickin’ Party. Who knows where the songs will go and who will join in!
It’s time to fiesta! Bring some cash and join in on some seriously fun games that raise money for Positive Legacy. Andy Hall, Andy Thorn along with Andrew Altman and Tim Carbone of Railroad Earth, team up with Julie, Becca & Dustin from The Sweet Lillies as our carnies, running the games.
Shaken or stirred? Frozen or on the rocks? Join members of Leftover Salmon, The Sweet Lillies, and Railroad Earth as they put their skills to the test – behind the bar! Be sure to tip your bartenders as proceeds benefit Positive Legacy.
Tuned In BINGO
It’s time to test your music knowledge and win some great prizes as The Sweet Lillies play some of their favorite tunes by the pool. Listen for songs you know and match ‘em to win big! Bring some cash along, as all proceeds benefit Positive Legacy.
A yearly staple and fan-favorite, this is your chance to meet the artists and bring home a unique piece of signed memorabilia.
Join us for the Beer Share where you can sip and swap your favorite ales, lagers, IPAs, and more with other Strings & Sol brew lovers.
Recharge your body and spirit with morning yoga! Let the waves serenade your practice with the Caribbean Sea as the backdrop. Jeremy Garrett of The Infamous Stringdusters will provide the soundtrack to one class.
