Uke Club's JANUARY JAM in San Antonio

  • January 6, 2013 · 1:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Sunday, January 6th @ Garage Mahal (Time: 1 p.m. to 2:30/3:00 p.m.) in beautiful historic Downtown San Antonio, Florida (near St. Leo University). The Garage Mahal, a converted garage, serves as a jamming place and concert venue for many local musicians. It is owned by Rochelle and Norman Morris, who are graciously letting the Uke Club use the venue.  The Garage Mahal is located inside the fenced gate of the purple house located across from the city park in San Antonio. Since this is not a restaurant, it might be wise to bring your own beverage and snack, if desired.

There will be plenty of chairs. Bring your uke, music stand (if you have one), and a singing voice. We can jam in unison so nobody feels self-conscious...This is for fun!

Also, please download music tabs (under "Files") for the specific date's jam and bring your "Jumpin' Jim's The Daily Ukulele Book" and the new "Leap Year Version" if you have it.  The book can be purchased at any Sam Ash Music Store or online at Amazon.com.

Please Note: To defray the cost of using Garage Mahal and maintain our MeetUp website, a donation of $2 is suggested.

    January's jam was the best one yet. The easy and challenging songs list was great, as were all the song calls and members' input, such as the "Bung, bung, bung" intro for "Mr. Sandman."

    Newcomers: please bring a music stand if you have one and the "Jumpin' Jim's Daily Ukulele" song book. It can be purchased on Amazon, Sam Ash Music Store, and Barnes & Noble (so I hear). http://www.amazon.com/Daily-Ukulele-Fakebook-Jumpin-Songbooks/dp/1423477758

    If you do not have the book, you can share with somebody at the jam...

    Thanks Michael and Chryisse, it's great of you guys to try and help me out. I just checked out the pics from the TBUS Christmas Jam, so many happy faces! I used to live in Dunedin. But alas, I didn't play the ukulele back then...

    Hi, all, I live in Beverly Hills in Citrus County and joined this group hoping that you occasionally have a meetup up this way. I'm about 70 miles from Dade City, and that's quite a hike!
