Yes! We are pulling together all the songs from both movies and let me tell you, just like in Woodstock, where you all came in Hippie garb, lol, everyone is planning to come in the face color of your choice, and heck, might even see a Peter Quill or a Drax!
This is REALLY cool music and of course, it's Rock, so, like, Rock On Strummers of little Ukes!!!!!
I say each month that, "This is going to be Awesome!" But I think that I will say that "This month is going to be EPIC!!!" LOL
See you all there and keep strumming Peeps, it makes me very happy to see YOU happy!
Again, if you want music emailed to you from these Rock Sessions we do each month, go to Meetup.com and make sure you join Tampa Bay Ukulele Society, it's free, and it will keep you up to date on ALL the activities around the Tampa Bay Area for ukulele events. Scroll to South Tampa Ukulele Jam and then follow directions for our email mailing list! You will also find on the meet up site for TBUS: Workshops, concerts, jams, lessons, library lending programs, open mics, TBUS has it all! Folks from all over the world have come to Florida for vacation and showed up to jam or play at open mics with us.
We also have a festival in November, called Tampa Bay Ukulele Getaway, a full weekend of music at the infamous Sirata in Clearwater Beach! National and International Artists, Concert and Workshops, Luau, Meet & Greet, Vendors, Auctions, Raffles, non stop music, play your uke at the beach, and leave tired, fulfilled, happy, and thirsting for the next Getaway!!!
OK, that's it for now, been busy, I try to get back here as often as I can, but soon, this is all I will be doing!!! Retirement is on the horizon and then Vinny and I, 30s Uke Girl, AKA Reenee of Reenee & The Rollers, will go on the road with our Ukulele Songs and teach the world to sing and play our original, It's An Ukulele Day!!!!
Ever and Always, 30s Uke Girl!!!
