Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain & Flash Mob Jam

Tom Petty PDF ADDED: The Ukes will have a strum-along of Tom Petty's "American Girl" in the key of A during the show. Here's the chart they'll be referencing:

http://files.meetup.com/799684/American%20Girl.pdf

Challenge yourself to learn it in the next few days so you don't have to read the chart -- you'll have more fun that way.

UPDATE PART DEUX: For anyone who is hanging around the lobby before the show, we will have a very well-mannered flash mob uke jam. If you want to be involved, download the Flash Mob book from the More Tab/Files section (6 easy songs in C/F/G7 & D7). Or, be prepared to shout out a popular song or two.

UPDATE III:

If you don't have a ticket, call the Michigan Theater and mention the code ELDERLY INSTRUMENTS to get 15% off.

    As a Flash Mob virgin, I have a couple of questions.
    Curtain time is 7:30 - when do we arrive/mob?
    Do we wear regular orchestra concert-going wear or bring/wear aloha shirts?

      I would say around 7. Just look for the old guy with an ukulele and a Hawaiian shirt. :)

      Hey! I resemble that remark more than you do!

    You can pretty much wear anything you wish! Most of us don't go out and rent a tux, but there will be a few. I'll wear an ukulele themed Hawaiian shirt.
