South Tampa Ukulele Jam starts in 1 month! Jan Platt Library has opened its doors and arms to embrace the Ukulele! Starting on July 18th, at 1:30 pm, South Tampa Jam re-ignites its engines and rolls out music every 3rd Saturday!
Just like before, STJ will always have a theme each month, and per tradition, will have a mic and a P A set up so that invited performers can also perform for the group.
In the past, we've had some amazing performances from the Tampa Bay Ukulele Society members. I am looking forward to this new journey within the library system, and hope that all of the members love the new venue too!
We are rolling out the first jam at Jan Platt with the theme, "Elvis is IN THE HOUSE"! 23 songs, 12 are in the key of C, many are three to four chords and some are challenging. There will be something for every level of player. We might even have a power point to put the music up on a screen. Now that would be cool!
I will be hosting the jam with my band mates, Vinny Mungo, Rick Alley and Pete Spera. Our ukulele band is called Reenee and The Rollers. Reenee comes from my name, NoREEN, (actually spelled Norine, but for the sake of pronunciation, I give you the traditional spelling. Reen, Reenee! We play originals and rock n roll with Tenor Ukes, Baritone Uke, Bass Uke, and Cajoun! Well practiced, we are working hard to make your jams seamless and energetic!
See you all in a month! The countdown starts now! Ever yours, 30s Uke Girl, Norine Mungo
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 :)
