Our March meeting is upon us, next week, on Thursday, March 8th, at Central Market. We are looking into finding a bigger and equally central and free location for our monthly meetings, but for now, we’ll still be in the Community Room at Central Market (4001 N. Lamar) – from 7:00pm – 8:30pm. We’ll follow our usual format and open with “Three Little Birds” and play some other songs we’ve practiced together. We’ll provide a receptive and supportive audience for solo performances if you should be so kind as to play us something you’re working on.
Secondly, we’ll practice three Beatles’ songs because some of us certainly hope to participate in the SXSW Beatles Complete on Ukulele, Ukulele Mob, on Thursday, March 15th, at noon, at Hickory Street Grill (downtown, 8th and Congress). Even if you cannot participate in the Ukulele Mob, Beatles songs are fun to play and sing, so how can you go wrong?
At the Ukulele Mob, and at our meeting, we’ll sing & strum “All Together Now,” “Why Don’t We Do It in the Road” and “Eight Days a Week” – the last is the same as we’ve previously played together. These are the three songs that will be performed, at noon, to kick off the Beatles Complete on Ukulele SXSW event, where everyone and anyone with a ukulele is most welcome to join in the ukulele merriment.
And now for versions of the two new songs you can listen to… although when you listen to them, know that they’ll be in another key (they’ll both be in C to accommodate the full range of skill levels), so they won’t sound exactly the same. Here’s…
For now, have a great week, and we’ll look forward to seeing you on Thursday, March 8th, at Central Market’s Community Room!
