South Tampa Ukulele Jam

South Tampa Ukulele Jam starts back up July 18th, every 3rd Saturday at Jan Platt Library in South Tampa!

Rolling out our first Ukulele Jam at Jan Platt Library, social time from 1:30 pm to 2:00 pm.  Then music from 2 to 4 pm.  There will be some time from 4 to 4:30 pm for any questions about Ukulele and Songs etc.  

I am happy to take back on the hosting of the South Tampa Jam, and this is a great venue, with plenty of seating and air conditioned with great parking!  

As usual, there will be a theme each month, starting with Elvis for July!  List is done, working on the sheets with chords, keeping it simple for beginners and a few challenging ones for intermediate to advanced.  Not going with the books for this one, as we are changing keys to easy ones for both singing and playing.  

Also, we always encourage and invite you to bring a related song to sing and play up in front of the group on the mic!  Our Uke band, Reenee and The Rollers will be there to guide the jam and throw in a few intermediate songs.  

List will follow soon on the File section.  Stay tuned! Ever, Norine Mungo

Here is the list. I'll have print outs at the library with chords.
1. All Shook Up key C
2. Are You Lonesome Tonight key C
3. Blue Moon Of Kentucky key A
4. Blue Suede Shoes key C
5. Burning Love key C

    Well boys and girls, after that jam I seriously needed a nap! How on earth did Elvis do those high energy shows? I've done a few Big E songs in the past, but never this many in a row. New respect for the King of Rock and Roll! Thank you all for coming today and singing out! You are the reason we all do these jams. And I enjoyed very much making music with y'all. Special thanks to Rick Alley, Pete Spera, and my hubby, Vincent Mungo for ask the hard work they put in rehearsing these songs. Also to those who bravely got up and performed, Mike, Bruce, Lalani, Cosmo and Jay, you were the most awesome! See you crazy people next month for The Monkees! I have a feeling that Tampa will never be the same! Ever, Norine

    I'm a little worried about Jailhouse Rick. The only bars I like to be behind serve tequila.

    Looks like I can Make it Today!!!..
    I would be Happy to Bring my UBass along... :O)

    There are a few last minute key changes in two songs. Easier to play and sing. The print outs will be in the correct keys. Our group, Reenee and The Rollers has been working hard on this and we're making sure you'll be able to sing along in comfortable keys and most importantly, be able to play most or all of the chords in each song. This is it. Tomorrow we rock Tampa! Are you ready! Let's Do This!

    Can someone please give me the easiest route to get there from St. Pete Beach? Thanks.

      Not sure, but I'd take the Gandy Bridge to Tampa and continue on Gandy Blvd to Manhattan. Make a left on Manhattan and stay in your right lane. The library will be a little ways up and on your right.

      July 16, 2015

  • Norine M.

    List is up folks! It's at the bottom of the event description! They are listed in alphabetical order. I'll have printouts of lyrics with chords, to share at the jam. See you all soon!

    July 15, 2015

  • Bruce J.

    So, Norine, I'll ask the new-guy question--where exactly did you (or will you) post the song list?

    July 15, 2015

    • Norine M.

      So, the list is at the bottom of the event description. We kept editing the list to get the best mix for the most folks, lol. Hope you enjoy the very fun day of the Elvis! See you soon!

    Peeps, I'm back now from vacation! I will post the song list on Wed! Elvis Elvis and more Elvis! I've heard from Cosmo, and he has a few selections to perform for you as well. This should be one fun jam. I also don't have a count from the library system so it looks like it could be a full room, so come early to get a good seat. For those of you who have been playing awhile, expect many new players as well. I'll try to have enough material for all levels. It's good to be back in Florida and I'm looking forward to seeing you all again!

    2 · July 15, 2015

  • Norine M.

    I'll be on vacation peeps, but I'll continue to work hard on the Elvis music, and should have pdf's for you soon. I've missed you all and can't wait to see/hear you all again! If you have any questions, feel free to ask, I'll be watching the mssg board on this page!
