Ukulele players of all skill levels are invited to come and Jam at Hambone's Pub. Come to sing along, or even just to watch. These Jam sessions will repeat on the 2nd Sunday of each month, so mark your calendars now.
Please review and print (as necessary) tunes we will play at the March 10, 2013 Jam.

And if you want to extend your Ukulele Day on Sunday, March 10, you should go to the Carnegie Library Main Branch at 4400 Forbes Avenue, Oakland to see Elliott Sussman play his Ukulele and other instruments from 2 PM to 3 PM. Elliott has joined us at previous Jams and puts on a GREAT show. And while you are at the Library, check out the Museum's upstairs Architechtural Center, where you can watch a video "People and Places," which has a cameo of the East Liberty Library "Tuesday Ukuleles" (just after Karla Boos and the Royal York Apartments).
We start to play at 5 pm and continue until 7 pm. Come early and sample Hambone's menu; meet other players over a beverage or just tune up. Plan to arrive by 4 pm (or earlier) in order to finish eating before play starts. Parking is free on Sundays and there is a city lot across the street from Hambone's.
The format of these Jams includes starting with easier songs from "The Daily Ukulele:365 Songs," playing additional "365" songs and then moving into the leader's play list. Participant recommendations are played, along with any new songs you want to present.
Bring the "Daily" book, a music stand, and 20 copies of any music you want to play. The goal is to have fun, improve your uke skills and meet people with a similar interest.
A play list will be published here prior to the Jam. If possible, you should print any songs that you don't already have.
Sign up now to attend this "Jam." See you at Hambone's.
