The meeting will NOT be recorded. This is for our enjoyment in real time.
6:45 - doors open, mics and cameras on for chat and cocktails
7:00 - songs start
8:00ish: awkward log-off
ZOOM registration: you MUST be registered with Zoom to gain access. The Zoom registration link shows up on this page once you've RSVP'd YES for this event.
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!
Citizens of Strummerville, (That's you)
Bring your uke, your nog (spiced or otherwise) and your holiday spirit for our 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!
Let us know in the comments if you’d like to lead a song and if it's not in the book then please send your pdfs to: [masked]

As usual, we open our Zoom doors half-an-hour before the official start time to do sound, visual, and song sheet scroll checks for performers as well as to welcome newcomers.
DON’T FORGET YOUR SUNGLASSES!
Join us in Zoom on Thursday at 3 pm EST -- check out the dates and themes in advance on the main web page.
Every session is recorded from 3:00 pm and live streamed for review and sharing. Only session participants and subscribers to the YouTube Channel will get URL of the livestream recordings because we UNLIST the video as soon as the session is over.
- video recording transcribers (indexers) - so we can find the song or performer afterwards
- screen sharer / scrollers - so we can be handsfree and play
- promoters - help spread the word so people know about it
