Greg Hoy and the Boys hosted a rock and roll holiday party at the Hotel Utah last week, and those who couldn’t be there missed hearing the definitive version of "Wonderful Christmastime" on ukulele. Because, in the immortal words of Greg Hoy, “The ukelele makes every song a holiday song."

Singer-songwriter Jvstin White began the evening, and Johnny Leitera of Tuff Sunshine brought his solo act from Brooklyn.
Those who normally have to travel to Santa Cruz to see Little Petie & The Mean Old Men were happy to hear them live in San Francisco, even if it cost them a parking ticket.
