Bring your uke, your nog (spiced or otherwise) and your holiday spirit for a special themed Meetup. This time we'll be strumming and singing the songs of the season. "The best way to spread holiday cheer, is singing loud for all to hear" - Buddy the Elf.
Let us know if you’d like to lead a holiday song in the comments. We've lovingly prepared a big ol' holiday songbook from which to choose. If there's seasonal song you'd like to lead but don't see it here, send it along and we'll happily add it!

A FEW SIMPLE RULES for PERFORMER SIGN-UP --
Deadline for sign-up is Wednesday at midnight, Danno time.
Since the program is only one hour, it turns out that TEN is about the right number of performers to schedule.
To help keep the list open to anyone who would like to play, the simple rule is: if you performed last week, you go to the end of the list for this week. (The corollary is: is you did NOT perform last week, you go to the top of the list this week.)
In real-life terms, that means if you performed last week, and if we have 10 new performers this week, you won't make the list.
Please always volunteer, whenever you're in the mood, and I'll do my best to post the list by Thursday, so everyone can plan accordingly.
Hope to see you there!
