Love and Tragedy — Ukulele Valentine Serenade at Wild Joes Feb 13


The Bozeman Ukulele Cabaret will host an all-ukulele night of Valentine-related songs from 6:30 to 8:30 pm on Wednesday, Feb. 13 at Wild Joe’s Coffeehouse in Bozeman.

 The theme for the evening is “Love and Tragedy,” so all ukulele players can feel welcome, whether their love life is a Tiptoe Through the Tulips or a Total Eclipse of the Heart.

Half of the evening will be open mic, so performers can serenade their sweetie or wallow in lovelorn sorrow, whichever the case may be.

Open mic sign-up will be posted at 6:30, or performers can sign up in advance online. (Comment your name and open mic song title on this page, and we’ll add you to the list.)

There will also be a play-along style Valentine ukulele serenade, with chord charts provided, so players of all abilities can dust off their ukes and strum along.

 The public is invited to stop in and listen, or to bring a ukulele and join the fun.

For updates, keep an eye on the Bozeman Ukulele Cabaret’s Facebook page.


Songs to Chill By fun sheets and upcoming February 13 Uke event

Hey uke pals, thanks for coming out to the January play-along at Wild Joe’s! Here is a delicious PDF [ ALL SONGS 1280×800 ] of the songs we played tonight with a few bonus tunes, in case you want to try them at home. (To give credit where due, I got some of these arrangements from our friends at Ukulele Boogaloo and Dr. Uke.)

Next up is our “Lovers and Martyrs” Ukulele Valentine Serenade on Wed. Feb. 13 at 7pm.

It will be half open mic, and half play-along, so it oughta be a great opportunity to make your sweetie swoon, or to drown your romantic sorrows with your own personal four-stringed romance counselor, however it happens to shake out.

We plan to have a nice PA set up in the front window of Wild Joe’s for those who would like to enter the ukulele limelight and perform a song, and all comers will be welcome to bring their ukes and play along on some all-play tunes.

See you Feb 13!

Songs to Chill by Ukulele Play-Along Jan 16 at Wild Joe’s

Chill-ByUkulele players of all abilities are invited to join the Bozeman Ukulele Cabaret for an evening of chillaxing with cozy melodies and warm harmonies on Wednesday, January 16 2013 from 7:00 – 8:30 at Wild Joe’s Coffeehouse in Bozeman.

Bring your ukulele and play along on a song list that will include easy and intermediate tunes from Simon and Garfunkel, Neil Young, James Taylor, and other favorites. (We plan to project chords on the big screen to make it easy for everybody to follow along!)

This isn’t a performance, just a chance to get out your ukulele and play it. No mics, no sweat — just fun! If you like, bring your own ideas for a familiar song or two that all can jam along on, or just show up and strum. All are welcome.

Feel free to comment on this blog with your suggestions, and find BozemanUkuleleCabaret on Facebook to stay in the know with upcoming events. See you Wednesday, Jan 16!
