The Ann Arbor Ukulele June Meetup: Pot Luck Edition

For June meetup: We will be shooting a quickie video for the upcoming Ukes in Hell get together... the song is "Take Your Ukulele and Go To Hell."

You'll find an mp3 and a chart in the Files section. Please give it a try. We are aiming to get some buzz going for this event and we want to make sure Ann Arbor, Ypsi and Farmington Hills are well represented! Hilo Greg will be singing the verses and everyone will join in on the choruses.

Also, don't forget we will run through our parade songs:

This Land Is Your Land

When The Saints Go Marching In

You're A Grand Old Flag/Yankee Doodle Boy

and our show-stopper... Ukes On The March.

To get some variety, we're encouraging everyone to bring or post a song. Newer members will get top priority!

Try to pick something familiar, or feel free to "lead" the song and get things started.

You'll find the songs up at the top under the "MORE" tab, then click >>Files. (You must be a member of this group and logged in to see the files.)

As always, we will pass the hat to pay for room rental and Yahoo fees, so bring a couple of bucks to throw in. We will also have time for an informal open mike segment if you have something you'd like to perform. See you then!

    Annette posted a notification a while back about a cookout at Helen's house. Wondering if there is still an interest. I'm looking at Sunday, August 11. I live in Saline. Let me know.

    Liked my first meetup. Songs were easy enough for me to keep up although I'm sure I bothered the nice people on either side of me.
    Looking forward to learning more. Thanks

    I haven't been to one of these before. Is there a set list or just the recently uploaded songs?

    No. Sorry I can't make it. Am having surgery 5/24 to repair my arthritic right thumb and will still be in a hard cast. :-(

    • Fawn K.

      Good luck with the surgery, arthritis is a pain in the wherever.
