What we're about

We're a meetup for ukulele players and those who wish to be.

A typical meetup starts with a themed playalong (with aids for beginners), and ends with a jam (with chances to bring your favorites or show what you've been working on). All ages and skill levels welcome and nurtured.

My mother told me to "go out and play!", so that's what we do; generally we'll play in a semi-public place (park or restaurant), adding a unique social aspect not present in home-centered groups.

And this one to our YouTube channel, with tutorial videos for each song: http://youtube.com/MorristownUkeJam

If you like the online social scene (WARNING, we only post intermittently), you can also find us:

Hope you come out and play with us soon!

February Meetup - Happy New Year! COME OUT AND PLAY!!!

South Street Creamery

YES, I know February is a bit late for a New Year celebration. Let's all blame COVID, shall we?

Take note, also, that we'll be meeting on SUNDAY at 2 pm, since the Creamery has changed to close earlier on Wednesdays. (Blame COVID!)

But we're here, and we're back, and we're hoping for a better year. I hope you'll COME OUT AND PLAY!

Here's a link to the newest in the Green Songbook family: https://tinyurl.com/MUJ-Green-Songbook-7

All the tutorial videos were done over the past 2 years, so have fun!

TAKE NOTE: This monthly meetup will in some ways be fairly standard:
-- Playing thru a songbook
-- Bringing songs to jam with or play for us
-- Having lots of musical (and other) fun

But in other ways it'll be a bit different:
-- Instead of 10 NEW songs we'll be celebrating 2020 and 2021 with our 7th GREEN Songbook, with the 10 songs picked from the a dozen songbooks (just 10 songs out of 120 total, that is) that we deemed “best for playing on the Green”. The idea is that these are crowd favorites (for players and listeners both), are fun to play, and aren’t crazy hard (so most of our players won’t have too much trouble).

Side note: THANK YOU to those who came to my house to convene the jury for these choices! This songbook is SO MUCH better because of you!

Since this is our first Meetup for the new year, you can bring any “first” or “new” songs if you like, plus it’s not too late to bring a holiday song or bring one of your favorite MUJ songs from 2020 or 2021 that didn’t make it into the Green songbook.

We’ll start with a music jam, followed with a playalong to our new GREEN SONGBOOK #7 (linked above), followed by more jamming. Bring a song to play for us or lead us in playing with you, your choice. We promise to be a generous and encouraging audience. Bonus points for following the “First / New / Holiday / 2020/2021” theme. But as always YOU call the shots when you’re up! COME OUT AND PLAY with us!

Do also please come hungry and thirsty, ready to generously patronize (and overtip) our hosts at the Creamery!

GREEN SONGBOOK #7 (from[masked]) songs:
-- Barbara Ann (The Beach Boys)
-- Crazy Little Thing Called Love (Queen)
-- Fire (Robert Gordon, The Pointer Sisters)
-- Heat Wage (Martha Reeves & The Vandellas, Linda Ronstadt)
-- On The Road Again (Willie Nelson)
-- Montego Bay (Bobby Bloom)
-- San Francisco Bay Blues
-- The Morristown Boogie (Nancy Landsman original)
-- The Wild Rover
-- Up On Cripple Creek (The Band)

As always, any song you want to bring will be highly celebrated. Have fun prepping or DON’T prep at all, but COME OUT AND PLAY!!!
