This Hillsborough County open mic is held on Davis Islands in Tampa the fourth Sunday of every month beginning at 4:00 p.m. It's hosted by TBUS member Steve McClure, with Rick Alley sitting in on Bass. Following the performers we'll play a few jam songs, so bring your yellow Daily Ukulele books. Molly's is a very clean restaurant with great food. Please purchase a beverage or food item to help support them. There is parking on the south side of the building, or on the street.
Song list is under construction. We use the yellow Daily Ukulele songbook, link below. (Note: I hope to add the blue second edition starting in January.) Feel free to bring songs to share. We'll need about ten copies if it's not in the book. We have tables in the conference room. You can put your music on the table, you can bring a regular music stand, or you might want to bring a table top music stand.
