“I get that a lot,” said Chris McGarry, a ukulele teacher and children’s program director at the Swallow Hill Music school in Denver. “I had a student email me and say, ‘Hey, can we learn to play that song because I’m going to propose to my girlfriend in class.’”

“It’s fun for us. ‘Banks in Harmony’ has a big, huge, pro (sound) system and we get to come in and feel like stars. It’s all about the music and not the technical stuff,” Chris Daniels said. “They really take care of their artists and their community well.”

The band in March interrupted their tour and later rescheduled all their Australia and New Zealand tour dates upon news that Scott — Jagger’s companion since 2001 — had committed suicide.

Macklemore wrote that he randomly chose the pieces of the costume he wore at Friday’s performance so that he could disguise himself and move freely around during the secret show. He said it wasn’t meant to be a caricature of a Jewish man.
