Monthly Ukulele Jam – Monday March 18

March-Ukulele-JamFolks keep asking us to keep organizing ukulele events, so starting this March, we’re going to try some unstructured, un-amplified sessions, beginning with a wide-open ukulele jam at 7pm on Monday, March 18. at Wild Joe*s coffeehouse in Bozeman.

This will NOT be the kind of thing where we have all the songs planned ahead of time. It’s up to the players to brings song ideas of their own to share with the group, and help folks play along. (Songs with repetitive choruses make good jam songs, because even if everybody doesn’t know the words, they can join on the chorus!) If you like, feel free to bring six or so photocopies of your song, or just tell us the chords and dive in. Whatever!

In the spirit of helping beginners, we will have a whiteboard on hand and chord diagrams, so come, strum and be awesome.


Ukulele Love and Tragedy Play-Along Booklets for Feb 13 2013

Love and ragedy SongbookHi uke pals, we have 16 awesome Love and Tragedy songs in the mix for this year’s Valentine Ukulele Open Mic and Play-Along event at Wild Joes (Wed., Feb. 13, 6:30pm).

Here’s a PDF of the Love & Tragedy Ukulele Valentine Play-Along Songbook for those who want to woodshed a bit beforehand, or to print a large print version, or paper their bathroom, or whatever.

–>  Love and Tragedy Songbook

We’ll have about 30 handy heartache hymnals on hand, free, while they last, but you are welcome to print your own to be sure you’re set up.


Selections from our treasure trove of prizes of dubious origin and questionable value!

In addition to joining in the play-along fun, we do hope that lots of lovesick and/or lovelorn souls will come out to perform a song of their own choosing for the open mic portions of the occasion.

If you can play a lovey-dovey and/or tears of anguish song on the uke, why not share your brilliance and/or good intentions with a wildly supportive audience? We promise, LOVE for open mic performers will be in abundant supply! (Hint: Don’t pick one of the play-along songs as an open mic number.)

PLUS!  If love itself weren’t enough, there will be PRIZES of dubious origin and questionable value for the most heartbreaking performance and the most sugary sweet performance.

What? There’s MORE???? Indeed: Rumor has it that Bozeman’s own heartthrob Ryan Cassvaugh just might show up to emcee. Eeee! Ryan is the mostest! So grab your ukulele and your sweetie and and a cuppa joe, and we’ll see you on Wednesday, Feb 13!
