Our Jam Sessions

What to expect…

August 20, 2018

 

SONG BOOKS:  We now have 356 songs posted on our website.  It is important to use these songs so that we can all play the same version.  If you are a visitor, there will always be someone to share the music with you. It would be helpful to bring a music stand if you have one. If you would like to suggest a new song that is not currently in our songbooks, let us know. We love adding new songs to the website.

  

STARTING TIME:  Our doors open at 7:00 P.M. to tune and setup, to mingle, to share information and even to have a bite to eat. (If you wish, you can bring a snack, your dinner and a non-alcoholic beverage with you.) We officially begin the meeting however, at 7:30 P.M. This is the time the group welcomes new members, makes announcements  and plays a few warm-up songs.

 

GROUP SESSION:  After the warm up, everyone has the opportunity to lead a group song. If you are not comfortable leading,  just pick a song you like and someone will volunteer to lead it. If possible it is a good idea to have a couple of songs in mind before the meeting starts.

 

NEW SONG: Together, the group works on a song that was chosen during the previous meeting for this occasion. The song for our next meeting is “Aux Champs Élysées” –  Songbook 5.

 

OPEN MIKE:  8:30 P.M. Here is where solos, requests, duets, ensembles, technique tips, and ukulele stories are presented by members of the club.

 

CLOSING SONG:   We play our closing song at about 9:30 P.M.

 

(Newbies are always given personal instruction on one of our spare ukuleles.)
