TBUS site has the details! For this event, there are certain preparations that you need to do in order to be ready to learn. See the requirement list on the page. Also, print the songs from the three links above as they will be used on this session.
Open Mic Ukulele Jam at The Whistle Stop December 19th on Thursday. This is in Safety Harbour and runs from 7 pm to about 10 pm. The host, and leader of Tampa Bay Ukulele Society, Steve Boisen, does a set of music and then calls up the ukulele performers who have signed up on the list for that evening. Make sure you bring your ukulele even if you don't want to get up for the crowd. There is always a jam along after the open mic and we play songs from the Daily Ukulele books. It is great fun when the whole restaurant whips out ukuleles and everyone plays along!
South Tampa Jam Holiday Extravaganza! Saturday, December 21st! This will run from 1 pm to about 5 pm. Social time till everyone gets in and settled. Wear holiday colors, bring cookies, cupcakes and treats, and we will do the Christmas songs from the three lists above. The stage is set beautifully for Christmas, and we will have many members getting up to perform for the jam. This is a jam along, and as members sing on the stage, you will be playing along with them. After the jam, there will be caroling in our park community, so if any of you would like to form a group and carol for the over 55ers, just let me know. I think it would be uber cool to take our ukes and walk a street! LOL. This jam is hosted by, ME, 30s Uke Girl. I will provide a hot cider punch at the jam.
That is it for December! Lot's of stuff coming up next month too! Keep checking in! Until then. . .
Happy KahMasZaa and Merry New Year! (covers HanukKAH, ChristMAS, and KwanZAA) I hope it catches on! I made it up about 3 years ago and you are welcome to copy paste it to your facebooks and blogs. May it go viral, may there be cards with it going out to friends and family, and maybe, just maybe, we can love our neighbors, Aye? And as Miss Congeniality says, May we all work toward world peace! It starts with YOU!!! Ever yours, 30s Uke Girl!
What is a 30's Uke Girl up to these days??
- I have been writing music and performing professionally for 30 years. Since moving to Florida, I've added many new originals that embrace the Florida scenery, history and lifestyle. This has been met with great enthusiasm from crowds all over the state. I currently have two CDs out but am now working on one that is exclusively Ukulele. I plan to use this site to give back, meaning, I will be posting info on where to go for festivals, sites that are all about Ukulele, song sites, and fun photos and pics of local and national events. Enjoy and most of all Have Fun!Remember this, Never Stop Dreaming, But, Now Is The Time To Take Your Dreams To The Next Level, And Start Living Your Dreams!!!! quote by Norine Mungo :)
