Hygienic and Virus-Free Ukulele Events With Carmen and Friends

Hi Friends,

Well since we are all stuck in our houses when we should be out playing ukulele, we have figured out a way to have it all! Carmen and John are hosting online events every week, on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

Here is the link to join the next Saturday Hygienic Ukulele Jam With Carmen & Friends

Join the Open Mic

Meeting ID: 484 135 8377 Password: ukuleles (or 07153064 for a telephone)

When you join, you microphone will automatically be muted.  There should be a chat option available on your screen.  Use this to make song requests, volunteer to lead a song, or any other chatter you want to share with John, Carmen, and the group at large.  You can also reserve a performance spot using this link. We request (but do not enforce) that you volunteer to perform a song and lead a song (you provide the music, we’ll display it for the group). We tend to take the volunteers first before opening it up to everyone else.

Join our Open Mic every Wednesday from 6:30 to 8:00 pm using the links above.   The way we will do this is to allow folks to volunteer to perform in their homes.  The focus of the meeting will then be shifted to them and they do their thing.   For those of us used to performing in person, this is easier.  Whoever you are with whatever skill level of playing you have, will be a perfect participant performing for us.  We all know how giving ukulele players are.  Combine this with the compassion we all feel being isolated as we are provides a great opportunity for each of us to express ourselves musically.  Please consider doing a performance. 

To volunteer a song, send your bid to John directly using this web form.  The more participation we can have the more fun it will be for everyone.
