What we're about
Upcoming events (5)
It's like a meeting without the meeting! Bring your uke and sing us a song -- or just sit in and enjoy. By popular request, tonight's theme: ORIGINAL SONGS. Bring us a song your yourself has written, and if you want to write a new one just for the event, THAT's the theme: "NEW." The meeting will NOT be recorded. This is for our enjoyment in real time. SCHEDULE: 6:45 - doors open, mics and cameras on for chat and cocktails 7:00 - songs start 8:00ish: awkward log-off HOW IT WORKS: We'll be using the extremely easy-to-use Zoom meeting software, which allows us all to share a virtual room and to see and hear each other -- very much like real life, only without the viruses. CLICK HERE to access meeting: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/210211026 (You can turn your camera and mic on or off, as you wish.) (Zoom has made some changes recently, so allow an extra minute or two to re-acclimate yourself.) AHEAD of TIME: You'll need to download the Zoom software, if you don't have it already. Use our meeting link and follow the instructions -- it's easy, safe, and reliable, not unlike my first wife.

Hope to see you there!

[Song sheets are not displayed on screen during the meetup. Links to the songbook appear further down in the Details. You may have to click on "Read more" to see them. Please download. Thanks!] Uke In The Afternoon: An afternoon ukulele Meetup! We've gone weekly! The format is still a work in progress, but we're having enough fun and showing enough interest to justify a weekly Meetup. It's the nature of online conferencing that we won't be able to sing together. There is a slight lag. We hear something a fraction of a second after it's sung/spoken. It's not a problem when speaking to each other, but deadly when trying to sing all together. So, each song has a leader and the rest sing along. We'll be working out of the regular book https://www.dropbox.com/s/5x6isqxnezup32l/UitA%203rd%20edition.pdf?dl=0 or https://www.dropbox.com/s/5x6isqxnezup32l/UitA%203rd%20edition.pdf?dl=1 If anyone has a particular song from the book that s/he would like to lead, please post here. A proposed setlist will appear in the comments shortly.
The seventies decade is an era of ABBA and a lot of great songs we mistaken for the sixties and the eighties. ..... The list of songs with their song sheets will be posted shortly. Please RSVP and check back for ZOOM registration link. https://www.anneku.com/2020/05/08/three-chord-thursdays-at-three-70s-hits/ We have a tradition for this series: bring your sunglasses. We will wear ours for a count of three with our ukuleles for a still camera shot for the blog post. You can enter the zoom meeting as early as you like but after 3 pm, we minimise or avoid all chit chat so we can have as much time as possible for the music. For the best experience in ZOOM, use the biggest and most powerful device you have. In general, the bigger (desktop computer), the better, although it's perfectly usable on a smart phone. Effectively, the best quality experience is with headphones and microphone on a big screen. You can enter the ZOOM ROOM early to check on sound and lighting. Close all other applications running on your device.
