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!

South Tampa Jam goes to the STAX CATALOG!!

STAX LOGO
This Month, South Tampa Jam goes STAX!  Held the 3rd Saturday of the month, the South Tampa Jam leans on themes each month to keep it fun and moving!  So far this year we have done Broadway, Love Songs, Elvis, Billy Joel, TV Theme Songs, Rock N Roll, Country, and now, for August, STAX.  

Yes, you CAN do stax with Ukulele!  This month we will have Baritones, Tenors, Concerts, Sopranos, Kala Bass, and Cajoun Percussion.  This is going to be one heck of a jam! I am also allowing Acoustic Guitar from our members, and any one who wants to play horns, BRING it!!  For more information as the song list rolls out, check the Tampa Bay Ukulele Society site for more information!  

Tampa Bay, this is your time to kick the end of Summer into high gear, get loud and proud and sing out with the awesome Stax catalog! 

We of course wouldn't dare do this jam without the quintessential Otis Redding!  Dock Of The Bay will start the day off!  See you all there!  Ever, 30s Uke Girl!!!

Transitional Chording!

Hi Boys and Girls,
Well, the article came out in Ukulele Magazine and requests have poured in from across the country as to what I am teaching in regards to Transitional Chording!  As this is a unique terminology, (I looked it up on the net, and lo and behold, it is a word I must have made up to explain what it is I do!), I thought it best to add a page to the blog and begin to produce some video on it!  I will also begin the production of a DVD on the technique for those who wish to view it as a workshop.

Thank you to Ukulele Magazine for the nice write up about our Tampa Bay Ukulele Society and all that we have to offer for the Ukulele Enthusiasts!  Happy Strumming and Ever Yours, Norine Mungo aka 30s Uke Girl!!!
