Nerang KaraUkey Sing Along January

This is the KaraUkey Sing Along format on the second Wednesday of the month at Nerang, with the  lyrics and  chords projected onto a large screen.  The January meetup will feature some traditional Australian songs and we will jam along with Judi on her squeeze box in the middle part of the evening.

A lot of the traditional Australian songs are fairly easy to play, including Botany Bay, Wild Colonial Boy and the Queensland Drover, songs like Home Among the Gum Trees., Men At Work's Down Under  and Still Call Australia Home are a little more challenging.

The full list is on the www.KaraUkey.com  website which now includes a Tenner Oz  book containing the Oz songs and a few others, for a total of twelve songs (A Tenner plus 2 bonus songs).

The whole thing is usually a bit  of fun. See you there if you can  make it.

 The preamble starts at 6.00 pm. The evenings strum and sing along session will start at 6.30 pm.

We are open to singers and players at all levels from beginners to advanced players. Or you can just sit back and enjoy the music.

There is a $5 fee for players.

I will bring  a couple of extra ukes, for anyone who might like to try one. If you have a uke and are just starting out Click "More"  then  Click "Files"  and work your way through some of the Quick play files starting at number 1, to get you started.

 The club has very reasonably priced meals and drinks available.

Please bring your friends and bring your ukes or other acoustic instruments, to keep it happening at Nerang.

    Hi Henk
    Thanks for a great night. Colin and I really enjoyed every bit of what you had to offer. As new comers it was not a daunting experience at all and would thoroughly recommend the night to others I wonder if it would be possible for you to download the music on the blank disc that goes with the song book if I bring it along next time, as I too am having trouble?
    Thanks again for making this group possible.

    The XMAS packs were sent out to people who asked for them and provided their emails, because files can not be attached to emails sent via the Meetup website.

      News to me. With the pack you bought just put the disc in the drive on your computer. Click on vKaraoke to install the Van Basco player then click on the song you want to play. The Xmas songs were emailed to everyone who asked for them.
