Greetings, ukulele fans of Kingston!
The weather is getting warmer, and like me, I’m sure most of you are taking advantage of the weather to practice outside. In a few weeks, we’ll move to our Summer schedule, and hold our jams in City Park. But for now, we’re still jamming at the Collins Bay Legion.
The next jam is this Wednesday, May 9, 7pm in the basement of the Legion Hall in Collins Bay. If you like, bring your favorite songs to share with the group. Or you can just sit back and strum along. Some people have already uploaded some of their songs to the Dropbox folder. (If you want access to that folder, just send me an e-mail.)
One thing to consider for the Summer is the annual Play Music on the Porch Day, this year scheduled for Saturday, August 25. My front porch can accommodate about half a dozen people. (If necessary, more can sit on the front lawn.) Let me know if you’re interested, and I can sign us up for the event. The idea is simple. People from around the world get together and play music.
Remember, we jam at the Collins Bay Legion, 4034 Bath Road, on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month (excluding holidays). 7pm. If you haven’t yet printed off your own copy of our favorites document, you can download it here. There’s no cost to the jam, but do show your appreciation to our hosts by visiting the bar, or at least dropping a buck or two in the tip jar. Click here for more details.
